Senator Flake will support Trump’s tax plan in pursuit of commitment by DACA

Arizona Senator Jeff Flake announced today his support in Congress for the tax reform promoted by President Donald Trump in exchange for a commitment from the White House in favor of the beneficiaries with Deferred Action (DACA).

Flake, one of the senators of the Republican Party who was opposed to the proposed tax reform currently being studied in Congress, said in a statement that from the beginning of the debate his inclination was towards a “fiscally responsible and promote economic growth. ”

During the project discussion, Flake has focused on “eliminating the $ 85 billion budget trick of the proposal” as well as obtaining a “firm commitment from the leadership of the Senate and administration” to enact “just and permanent protections for beneficiaries of DACA “, according to the note.

Jason Samuels, spokesman for Flake’s office, told the Arizona Republic newspaper that the senator has obtained the commitment of Vice President Mike Pence and senior White House officials to resolve the situation of Deferred Action, a federal program eliminated by the current Administration. , at the same time that you have committed your vote to the fiscal plan.

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO), a nonpartisan body, estimates that the fiscal reform project being studied by the Senate will result in notable tax cuts for those who earn more than $ 100,000 a year.

It is estimated that the federal program of Deferred Action, established by former President Barack Obama, has protected from deportation 800,000 young people who came to the country illegally when they were minors and, since it was eliminated, about 120 people lose each day the benefits of DACA.

A harsh critic of Trump, Flake recently announced that he will not seek reelection as a senator.
