Immigration Plan Should Have $25 Billion for Border, Cornyn Says

28 January, 2018, 00:15 | Author: Samuel Sharp

Republicans in this poll oppose the program, though Democrats and independents are in support. That's good news for everyone, Dreamers included.

But some students blamed both parties, citing a long history of government shutdowns and inaction from Congress as evidence of a political system which is increasingly polarized and willful.

Senate Democrats have given up their brief, pointless, and mostly harmless shutdown of the federal government.

"Which one? The one nine o'clock one or the 9:10 one or the 9:20 or the 9:45?" said Democratic Sen.

Reality No. 1: It's not quite true that Republicans control both houses of Congress. People have mortgages [and] people have student loans, and for them to out of nowhere be like, "DACA is expiring and your permits to work will expire, ' it's just insanely incomprehensible to think about how much [Dreamers"] lives have been put in limbo. The Republicans hold a very slim majority there, but needed a 60 majority which the Republicans don't have.

The truth is Democrats did have the power to shut down the government. "That isn't leadership, and it's doing nothing to help lift up Americans, who deserve a functioning government". That edict allowed certain immigrants who were brought to this country as children to qualify for protected status, meaning they can work and attend school without fear of being deported.

This is ugly, race-based politics at its worst.

With a bipartisan agreement on the table, a united Congress can pass a lasting solution that will finally protect 800,000 immigrant youth from deportation, giving them the path to citizenship.

Durbin says whether it's the Children's Health Insurance Program or DACA, young people shouldn't be used as bargaining tools.


A rallying cry for Democratic senators during the shutdown was that most Americans are in favor of helping DREAMers, undocumented immigrants who came to the USA as children. Yes, they've been cruelly tossed about by Donald Trump's mood swings. That's why Democrats were wise to pack it in. As a two-time chair of Senate Republicans' campaign arm, he's been a vocal proponent of welcoming minorities into the party, and beat his Democratic opponent's performance with Latino voters in his 2014 re-election bid. And if militant fist-waving unsettles large parts of the electorate, not their problem.

"He's proven over and over again that he changes up his words so many times, he claims he didn't say things when there's proof that he said it", she said. The reality is radical-left candidates rarely win elections.

In the end, it was hard to deny that Republicans had won, the Democrats had caved - and the Democratic party's progressive wing was furious at Schumer.

By the way, the spokespeople don't own the women who recently marched in great numbers.

"He went to the mats", said Frank Sharry, the executive director of the immigration advocacy group America's Voice.

Whether the government will finally get a real budget for the remainder of this fiscal year (which ends on the last day of September) remains to be seen.

"If you provide citizenship for these DACA kids, once they become citizens, they can take advantage of the current chain migration", Rounds said.

However, key issues remained unresolved, the CNN said. Byron Dorgan, a North Dakota Democrat, "are jobs, Medicare, Medicaid, CHIP, Social Security, infrastructure, supporting domestic programs, clean air, safe drinking water". The mainstream media's shutdown stories did Rather one better: they were fake and inaccurate.
