A bipartisan Senate group reaches a deal on DACA

February 14, 2018

  According to this story a bipartisan Senate group has reached a deal on a DACA solution which they will be releasing shortly for the Senate to read. Here is more:

A bipartisan Senate group tentatively agreed on a trimmed-down immigration proposal Wednesday that would allow citizenship for young undocumented immigrants and provide $25 billion for a border wall without meeting White House demands for cuts in family migration and an end to a diversity visa lottery.

Graham said the proposal won’t address a 50,000 visa diversity lottery that Trump wants to end. The young immigrants wouldn’t be allowed to sponsor their parents to live in this country — a standard that falls short of Trump’s effort to limit all family-based immigration to spouses and minor children.

Here is some of what Lindsey Graham had to say about this upcoming proposal:

Graham said, “The president’s going to get his border security money and we’re going to do a 1.8 million pathway forward. To break the chain, we’re going to say that the parent can’t be sponsored by the Dream Act child they brought in illegally.”

  The reporting in this story seems a little sloppy: The article states there would be funding for a border wall but Lindsey Graham used the term “border security” and those two terms are  not necessarily the same thing. The article also says the proposal would not meet the President’s demand to end chain migration yet Lindsey Graham said the chain would be broken by not allowing minors to sponsor their parents. Perhaps siblings would still be allowed to migrate and that is what the article is referencing–it is not clear.

  The proposal does not address the VISA lottery program but it does apparently give 1.8 million dreamers a pathway to citizenship, which is something that Donald Trump proposed a few weeks ago.

  My instinct tells me that if this is brought to a vote in the Senate it will pass but at this point it is hard to predict what the politicians in Washington will do because they are all really looking out for themselves politically above all else. If it does pass the Senate and eventually makes it to the President’s desk will it be enough to win his approval? Will Donald Trump cave on the VISA lottery program, hoping for a fix in the future, in exchange for border security (or is it a border wall?) and the beginning of the end of chain migration?

    Webster’s English Dictionary:
    Bi-partisan Agreement -adj: Anarrangement whereby the feckless republicans drop their drawers and bend over while fooling themselves that they didn’t get screwed although the democrats get everything and more through a process called incrementalism and in the final analysis the republicans end up with nothing but their hand on their ass.

    To me they are “Nothing-ist” who produce “worthlessness”. They “build nothing” of value. They’re like parasite that eat and produce 💩 and kill off “good life.”
    THEY TRIVE OFF the living and produce death.
    Their foundation is based on LIES, DECEIT AND derision.
    They ‘prove’ Darwinism’ when it comes to their existence: they came from “nothing” and evolved into worthless slimy creatures.

    See how ‘evil’ brings out the worst in people vs Love, Truth, Hope, Mercy, Understanding, Gentleness, Long suffering, Substance of value!
    Proverbs 8:12 I WISDOM dwell with PRUDENCE, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.

      I like the “nothing-ist” term, it really does apply. I also like you calling them basically mental Darwinists. When you do not have God there really is no greater meaning to life and therfore they seek their rewards on earth.

    Sacs, Dreamers, undocumented; the left controls the narrative with no pushback but, rather capitulation, from the republicans.. This started years ago when the politicians came up with “Hispanic ” to create racial divisions although latinos are not a race. Yes, DC continues to divide in order to conquer; White, Black, ,oriental-oops-Asian, Hispanic and now Muslim. How long before the bureaucrats invent another group to suck up entitlements and thereby further enslave the worker bees?

      Yep, the Dems control the narrative because the media pushes it for them. Even if the Republicans did decide to fight back the media wouldn’t cover it anyway.

      Yep, they all should be ‘hung’ as TRAITORS that they are.
      Using ILLEGALS to keep their power, position and fraud going.
      They’ve been usurping and raping the Constitutional Republic for decades and getting away with it.
      Well, May the LORD God cut them off their Gravy sucking Train & make them break rocks for their keep.
