House defeats first GOP immigration bill

p37374article21202031whp.jpg

ㅤ"The House defeated the first of two GOP immigration bills Thursday, rejecting an enforcement-heavy approached favored by conservatives that would have mixed a narrow legalization for ‘Dreamers’ with a major boost in border and interior enforcement.
ㅤThe bill was expected to fail, but it still marked a blow for conservatives who’d said it was a viable alternative that improved security without offering a full amnesty.
ㅤIt was defeated 231-193.
ㅤNext up for a vote is a more moderate bill that combines a full pathway to citizenship for Dreamers and other immigrants with less comprehensive enforcement measures.

ㅤThat too is expected to fail."ㅤ

Texas sues to stop DACA

TEXAS SUES TO STOP DACAㅤp01article173147whp.jpg

ㅤ"’Texas has argued for years that the federal executive branch lacks the power to unilaterally grant unlawfully present aliens lawful presence and work authorization,’ Mr. Paxton said in filing the lawsuit. ‘Left intact, DACA sets a dangerous precedent by giving the executive branch sweeping authority to ignore the laws enacted by Congress and change our nation’s immigration laws to suit a President’s own policy preferences.’"

ㅤ”Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin said Thursday that he does not expect Democrats will insist on attaching immigration reform to the fiscal year 2018 spending omnibus, lowering the odds of another government shutdown.
ㅤDurbin said Congress is looking forward to finally passing the spending package, which comes nearly six months into the fiscal year, after weeks of acrimonious disagreement over spending levels, immigration, and a variety of conservative policy riders.”

Trump’s DACA Deadline Is Today, Here’s Why It Doesn’t Matter

TRUMP’S DACA DEADLINE IS TODAY, HERE’S WHY IT DOESN’T MATTERp05114455.jpg

ㅤô¿ô …DACA has been a difficult issue for the President. He has publicly stated that his personal preference is to grant amnesty for the Dreamers. But he also believes in following the letter of the law and satisfying the desires of the most conservative factions of his “base.” Putting the responsibility for DACA on Congress was a brilliant move on the part of the President.
ㅤSupport for amnesty has grown even among conservatives. His proposal to deal for the border wall was perfectly timed.
ㅤThe injunction that allows renewals to continue was probably welcomed by the President considering he personally desires amnesty for the Dreamers.
ㅤ America has been wounded by our failed immigration policy. The first step in healing a wound is to stop the flow of blood. Build the border wall.

Democrats see no leverage left to push DACA fix with budget deal done

DEMOCRATS SEE NO LEVERAGE LEFT TO PUSH DACA FIX WITH BUDGET DEAL DONEp09162820.jpg

ㅤ”The budget agreement set spending levels for the next two years, and it passed as part of a short-term spending bill that included billions in disaster relief with 73 Democrats joining most Republicans in support of the measure.
ㅤThe Democrats who opposed the deal because it didn’t include a fix for the 800,000 recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program now have little hope that legislation will be passed by the March 5 deadline imposed by Trump, if at all.”

POLL: Majority Of Americans Agree With Trump On DACA, Immigration

p4475622164132.jpg

ㅤ”The poll, weighted to be broadly representative of the U.S. population, found that 65% of voters overall agreed with Trump’s position that any bill codifying Obama-era protections for illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children should be accompanied by funding for a wall, ending chain migration, and ending the diversity visa lottery program.
ㅤThe individual elements of each of Trump’s demands remain broadly popular as well. On the most controversial subject of the border wall, 53 percent of respondents said they supported ‘building a combination of physical and electronic barriers across the US-Mexico border,’ and 61 percent said current security along the US-Mexico border is inadequate.”

McConnell promises immigration debate if government reopens

p4475122111543.png

ㅤ”Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Monday promised to take up an immigration bill protecting an estimated 800,000 Dreamers from deportation and allow an open amendment process if Democrats agree to reopen the government.
ㅤThe Senate will vote at noon on a three-week funding resolution to end the government shutdown that began at midnight Saturday. The legislation includes an extension of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
ㅤDemocrats have been pressing McConnell for a vote on the Dreamers legislation, and it is unclear whether his latest commitments will be enough to win them over.
ㅤWith some Republicans expected to vote against the bill, nearly a dozen Democratic votes will likely be needed to clear a 60-vote procedural hurdle.”

Gutierrez ready to give in on border wall

ㅤ”Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) said Saturday that he’s ready to give President Trump his signature border wall if the Republicans will agree to new legal protections for the Dreamers. Furthermore, he said he’d help with the construction.
ㅤ’I’ll take a bucket, take bricks, and start building it myself,’ Gutierrez told reporters in the Capitol. ‘We will dirty our hands in order for the Dreamers to have a clean future in America.’
ㅤThe comments constitute a remarkable concession from the Chicago Democrat, among Capitol Hill’s most vocal immigration reform advocates and fiercest opponents of expanding wall construction at the U.S.-Mexico border.”
