He never figured anyone but a democrat would win, thus he promised illegals who voted that they would not be punished.
If you're looking for something to blame, we can trace the current problem back to the Reagan Administration's 1986 amnesty bill, it's lack of employer sanctions, and lack of serious subsequent efforts to enforce immigration law by Republicans because the situation benefited large business interests, particularly agra-businesses. Neither Bush administration addressed it, nor did the general American public much care as the economy went through two major booms and illegals largely stayed segregated (and quiet) in their own communities.

It wasn't until after the 2008 housing crash and subsequent economic downturn that public outcry rose to any serious level. Of course by then, illegals were 11-20 million strong, had infiltrated many communities, and were a huge and rapidly growing source of votes for Democrats. That's when you started to see more and more radical calls from the left to protect and pander to them.

The Republicans essentially got shot with their own gun on this one. They reacted with their own pandering, which was laughable and sad at the same time. Luckily, Trump came along and hijacked the party before the illegals could be given amnesty.

How much time he'll have to correct the situation is anyone's guess. Hopefully those who supported him stay awake, because it won't be enough time if you don't.

The Dem in PA only had a chance because he's pro-gun. Does the Dem party plan on running all pro-gun candidates in 2018?

Obviously a rhetorical question. Libs will kick Mexicans to the curb once they vote and elect a democrat to the presidency. Look at what they have done to blacks, who are a sure thing vote. Libs only care about being in power, not what is best for America or how certain demographics will benefit under their "leadership". Sadly, the sheep will follow.
