Democrats don’t want immigration reform

They didn’t do diddly about fixing immigration during the 111th U.S. Congress, when they had majority control of both sides of Congress and the White House.

And now, they have blocked a Trump-supported Republican deal that would have offered a path forward on DACA.

2018_02 16 Protect dreamers unless

Sen. James Lankford (R-OK): “Most of what was proposed by the President and Senate Republicans has passed the Senate multiple times over the past fifteen years, but not today. It’s disappointing that Democrats would not come to the table simply because President Trump supported it. Immigration reform is complicated and emotional, but it is essential that we keep working until we reach a good faith solution for the future of all Americans.”

Fox Business’ Trish Regan:Maybe they don’t want Republicans to get the credit for giving these dreamers a path to citizenship!”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY): “I thought my friends across the aisle would jump at this opportunity to fulfill what they say is their top priority. But they just could not take ‘yes’ for an answer.”

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR): “What this debate has shown is just how unserious the Democrats are about illegal immigration.”

Sen. David Perdue (R-GA):Senate Democrats have shown their true colors. First, they shut down the government over DACA. Today, they had an opportunity to vote to provide certainty for 1.8 million DACA recipients and they voted no.”

I was going to do an opinion piece, but after almost two weeks of fighting snowstorms every day as I delivered newspapers I’m worn out. Maybe another time.

PAUL RYAN Promises Democrats to Pass Amnesty – Will Get to It Next
NEVER MIND CALLS TO PRIMARY HIM. THE DEMOCRATS IN HIS HOMETOWN LOVE HIM. HE’S NOT GOING ANYWHERE.
Speaker Paul Ryan promised Democrats on Thursday he will pass amnesty for illegal aliens. They just need to wait a week or two.

Formerly bankrupt California city tests ‘universal’ income for residents
The proposed project is being funded by a private grant
WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?
The plan, spearheaded by Stockton’s 27-year-old mayor, Michael Tubbs, will likely begin sometime in August 2018 and involve at least 100 people of varying income levels getting $500 a month for three years.
Ever since it declared bankruptcy in 2012, Stockton has been in recovery-mode, and Tubbs sees basic income — a growing topic of discussion around the world over the past couple years — as one way to rehabilitate the city.
In a basic income system, participants get a fixed amount of money that they can use however they want.

Ignoring Human Rights Abuses, Mainstream Media Gush Over North Korea’s ‘Charm’
In a bizarre display of willful blindness, U.S. liberal media have lavished praise on North Korea’s dictatorship during the first days of the Winter Olympics, gushing over its “charm offensive” and comparing it favorably to the Trump administration.
In an article Sunday titled “Kim Jong-un’s Sister Turns On the Charm, Taking Pence’s Spotlight,” the New York Times was unable to contain its admiration for the totalitarian state, saying that North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, stole the show at the Winter Olympics by sending his sister, Kim Yo-jong.

Trump wants a military parade and liberals are hysterical (just more proof it’s the right thing to do)
President Trump wants a parade celebrating our military and troops. It’s a great idea, and is a perfect event symbolizing the fact that America is getting back on her feet after eight years of a commander-in-chief who reveled in complaining about America and decimating our military.The hysteria the proposed parade has provoked among Democrats and leftists provides even more proof that it’s the right thing to do.

Liberal Hack to Secretary Mattis: Why Divert Energy, Time, Financial Resources for a Military Parade?
Donald Trump with wife Melania and sons Eric and Donald, Jr. Trump holds the Phelps Award as 2008 Honoree of the Year by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Plaza.
Donald Trump was credited with saving the 50th Anniversary of the NY Veterans Day Parade
UPI reported in 1995 how Trump was credited with ‘saving’ the New York Veterans Day Parade. The parade that year was marking the fiftieth anniversary of the end of World War II.
Police estimated 500,000 people attended the largest military parade ever held in New York. Organizers, who placed the turnout at closer to a million, said the parade would not have been a success if it hadn’t been for real estate developer Donald Trump, who contributed $200,000 and raised another $300,000.
Last week the Trump White House announced they would ask the military to plan a great military parade in Washington DC.
Democrats were disgusted.
Hallie Jackson: To follow up on Catherine’s question, You just laid out the argument to fulling funding the military, why you think every dollar counts. So why divert time, energy, financial resources to the planning of a parade as the president has asked?

I-TEAM: Inmates claim Corrine Brown getting special treatment
Current, former workers at Coleman facility say that’s not true
Security officials inside the minimum-security prison camp that is part of the Coleman Federal Correctional Complex in Central Florida — where the 71-year-old former Democratic congresswoman reported to Jan. 29 — said she’s treated like everyone else.
But according to inmates, Brown has been getting everything from massages to being able to wear wigs.
“New mattress, kissing up all day and all night by both staff and residents … and she got to keep a bunch of wigs,” one inmate wrote.
The letter goes on to say, “She had to have a brand new mattress. She has girls that are in prison at her beck and call. She says they are on her payroll. Where we got one chicken pattie for lunch she gets 2. The officers allows her to have massages every night.”
That inmate also claims that Brown is allowed to wear “brand new high-top leather sneakers” that aren’t even sold in the prison commissary.

Jeanne Ives Targets Illinois ‘Sanctuary State’ Law in Republican Primary
RAUNER TRIED TO BRING A BIT OF FISCAL SANITY TO THIS LIBERAL SEWER. HE WAS STEAMROLLED BY THE DEMOCRAT-DOMINANT LEGISLATURE LED BY HOUSE SPEAKER MICHAEL MADIGAN AND THE NEWS MEDIA. HIS VETO WAS EASILY OVERRIDDEN AND HE JUST GAVE UP. NOTHING ANY REPUBLICAN DOES WOULD MAKE A BIT OF DIFFERENCE.
Illinois State Representative Jeanne Ives (R-Wheaton) has launched a biting new ad against incumbent Republican Bruce Rauner that brings the “sanctuary state” issue to the fore in the Republican primary.
In 2017, Rauner signed a law that essentially made Illinois a sanctuary state. Conservatives warned that it marked the “beginning of the end” of his administration.

Columnist: “It’s Time To Accept They’re No Longer Journalists. They’re Activists”

California Moves To Force Public Universities To Administer Abortion Pills
The state legislature is moving on an aggressive attempt to reconfigure student health centers from places of healing to abortion franchises.
The FDA reports that such drug-induced abortions have led to cases of extreme bleeding, infection and incomplete abortions requiring a surgery, and even to the death of mothers. The drugs are especially dangerous to women who are later in pregnancy or are experiencing an ectopic pregnancy, both conditions which must be determined by an ultrasound (using equipment not usually found in a college health center.) And that is before we add in the emotional experience of waiting alone in a bathroom to see the pre-born infant pass into a toilet.

California Will Block Oil And Coal Shipments, Risks Constitutional Battle
“Given how unpopular oil development in coastal waters is in California, it is certain that the state would not approve new pipelines or allow use of existing pipelines to transport oil from new leases onshore,” coastal commissioners Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, State Controller Betty Yee, and state Department of Finance Director Michael Cohen wrote in a letter Wednesday to the BOEM.
California officials can therefore control pipelines, transportation of materials, terminals, and refineries built in coastal areas. The federal government could pull out the U.S. Constitution’s supremacy clause to create a regulatory framework that would override California law.

Dems left Dreamers out to dry, say activists
Immigration activists are furious that 73 House Democrats, including seven members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, voted for a bipartisan spending bill that doesn’t include a DACA fix.
“Last night immigrant young people and people of conscience fighting for justice were betrayed by both parties,” said Greisa Martínez Rosas, a DACA recipient and advocacy director for United We Dream, an immigrant youth activism network.

NBC Political Analyst: ‘Trump Has Become The Commander in Chief of American Rape Culture’
Last week White House staff secretary Rob Porter stepped down after his former wife alleged he was abusive during their marriage. And White House speechwriter David Sorensen also resigned after a former wife alleged he was abusive during their marriage. Both men denied the charges.
Of course, this story led liberal media headlines all week.
These are the same people who defended Bill Clinton – who actually was accused of rape and was forced to pay thousands to at least one woman he sexually abused.

Trump Team reveals Immigration plan

The Trump administration has released an immigration framework that includes:

  • the possibility for citizenship for 1.8 million people brought the U.S. as minors,
  • $25 billion for a border wall and stronger security, and
  • an end to chain migration for extended family members.

A large majority of Americans support providing a pathway to citizenship for illegals brought to the U.S. as minors.

2018_01 DACA support high

Trump’s DREAMer plan includes requirements for “work, education and good moral character” and mirrors a bipartisan Senate proposal that would allow DREAMers to become citizens after 12 years, or 10 years if they were approved for DACA.

2018_01 23 US kills ISIS during shutdown

As soon as the government was opened back up, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer pulled his offer to support a wall on the southern border. President Trump fired back: “If there is no wall, there is no DACA.”

People noticed who was getting screwed. Here are the results of a new Harvard-Merris poll about the immigration issue that forced the shut down:

  • 79% of Americans want secure borders.
  • 61% say current security is inadequate.
  • 65% FAVOR the congressional deal Trump is offering, i.e., keep DACA in exchange for
    • increasing merit immigration
    • decreasing chain immigration
    • eliminating the diversity visa lottery
    • funding for barrier security on the U.S.-Mexico border.

Democrats Lose Big Time As Shutdown Ends

They tried to shoehorn a big immigration amnesty into stopgap funding and paid a heavy price.

Democrats got essentially nothing in exchange for voting to re-open the government, which made the Republican triumph even sweeter. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) made an unenforceable promise to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) to bring an immigration bill to the floor – he said merely that it was his intention to do so – if a compromise cannot be made regarding the illegals before government funding runs out again.

Never play Chicken with the Trump Train
This embarrassing game of Chicken shows that — for the first time in decades — a Republican won the Narrative War.
Republicans never win the Narrative War.
And that’s why Schumer and the Dems were so certain they’d succeed at hanging this shutdown around Donald Trump’s neck.
But they failed miserably.
No. Trump went much further than that. He successfully labeled this shutdown as Democrats choosing illegal aliens over American citizens.
And because of that, losing this game of Chicken isn’t just a minor setback for Chuck Schumer and the Democrats.
They went all-in for non-citizens over Americans. And now, no matter what they do, Trump has succeeded in labeling them the Party of Illegals.

We Are Outraged:’ Illegal Alien Activists Turn on Democrats After Amnesty-or-Shutdown Fail
In a protest outside of the U.S Capitol, open borders advocates and illegal alien activists slammed Democrats after they originally shut down the federal government to push amnesty for illegal aliens, but then caved to President Trump and voted to reopen the government without an amnesty attached to the funding bill.
Illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program with the open borders group “United We Dream,” which is funded by globalist billionaire George Soros, said they were entitled to an immediate amnesty before the federal government was reopened.

House-Passed Gov’t Funding Bill Fails In Senate Triggering Gov’t Shutdown

The Senate failed to pass a cloture vote on a House-passed continuing resolution late Friday evening, just before government funding levels were set to expire.

Democrats withheld their votes over a lack of an agreement on a legislative fix to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program — the Obama-era initiative that extended temporary legal status to foreign nationals who illegally entered the country as minors — leaving GOP leadership short of the 60 votes needed to send the measure to the president’s desk.

Crazy Pelosi Brags About Protecting DREAMERS After Senate Democrats Block Funding in Favor of Illegal Aliens

The House budget resolution failed a cloture vote in the Senate on a largely party line vote, 50 to 49.

Tonight, on the eve of the first anniversary of his inauguration, President Trump earned an ‘F’ for failure in leadership.

“President Trump and Congressional Republicans’ obsession with passing a tax scam to benefit the wealthiest and corporations has blinded them to their responsibilities to the American people. Despite controlling the House, Senate and White House, the Republicans are so incompetent, so negligent that they couldn’t get it together to keep government open.

Flashback to when Obama weaponized 2013 government shutdown

High profile national monuments and parks were “Barrycaded” so that TV cameras could show veterans and others being turned away.

“I’ve been through some of these before,” he said. “The Democrats are opposing a bill that they don’t oppose! … They don’t oppose anything in the bill, but they are opposing the bill.”

“I just want to let everybody know,” he said about the potential government shutdown:

“We do not want this, we do not want a shutdown, but if Mr. Schumer insists on it, he is in a position to force this on the American people.”

Jim Acosta of CNN embarrassed himself by suggesting Republicans could avoid a shutdown because they control the House, Senate and Presidency. He knew, of course, that 60 votes are needed in the Senate.

Democrats have a) have longed called government shutdowns irresponsible, directing their attacks at Republicans; b) they’ve said that tying immigration to budgetary matters is just an exercise in chaos. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said that in 2013 during the debt ceiling negotiations. The latter is the audible here. Democrats want a DACA deal first.

House Passes Short-Term Spending Bill, Legislation Faces Uphill Battle In Senate

The House passed a continuing resolution (CR) along party lines Thursday after GOP leadership struck a last-minute deal with the House Freedom Caucus ensuring they had the votes.

Following the vote House GOP leadership called on Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer to pass the measure.

“Sen. Schumer, do not shut down the federal government. Do not jeopardize funding for our military and for our national security. Do not jeopardize funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program,” House Speaker Paul Ryan told reporters Thursday evening. “It is risky. It is reckless. And it is wrong.”

Democrats Just Admitted Their Goal is to Shutdown the Government

But according to a Democrat aide who spoke to NBC News, the goal is for Democrats to come up with enough votes to stop the funding measure from going through. In other words, they just admitted their goal is to shutdown the government, not to avert it as they’ve been claiming. They’ve also put the brakes on any kind of compromise that doesn’t include amnesty for illegal aliens currently covered by DACA.

3.6 Million DREAMERS in US — Will Flip Florida, Arizona, Georgia, and North Carolina From Red to Blue!

THIS IS WHY THE DEMOCRATS ARE PUSHING SO HARD FOR AMNESTY FOR ILLEGALS.

A recent study of DACA Dreamers found that most of these new Democrat voters reside in Republican states.  Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and Democrats are determined to pass amnesty for this group of illegal aliens.

DACA amnesty could give Arizona, Florida, Georgia and North Carolina to the Democrat Party.  And then once a Democrat is elected they will open the borders to millions more third world immigrants to vote Democrat.

This is what Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and Democrats want to happen.

GOP Senators Send Trump ‘Amnesty-Or-Shutdown’ Threat

THIS PATHETIC LITTLE PISSANT IS TRYING TO LEAD HIS OWN PARTY TO RUIN.

The hostage-taking is being fronted by a group of GOP legislators, led by Sen. Jeff Flake and Sen. Lindsey Graham, who announced Wednesday they would not allow 2018 funding for the Pentagon until Trump approves an amnesty, saying:

To the defense hawks, the only way you’re going to get your money is to deal with immigration rationally.

Democrats and their media allies are eager to let Graham and his GOP allies take the leading role in this shutdown-or-amnesty fight.

Pro-amnesty Democrats are minimizing their visibility by pretending they will oppose a budget deal until the Congress funds various spending programs—such as community health centers, and disaster aid—which the GOP majority is largely willing to fund

USA Today: Amnesty Debate Is About 3.6 Million ‘Dreamers,’ not Just 800,000 DACA Illegals

The article’s headline was: “There are 3.6M ‘DREAMers’ — a number far greater than commonly known.”

Many pro-amnesty legislators — and many newspaper outlets — routinely conflate the very different ‘DACA’ and ‘Dreamer’ terms. This conflation allows them to suggest that the Democrats’ huge DREAM Act amnesty for 3.6 million illegals — and eventually, their parents and chain-migration relatives — is a smaller amnesty for the ‘DACA’ illegals, whose estimated population ranges from 670,000 to 800,000.

Trump Admin Won’t Hold Parks And Monuments Hostage If Government Shuts Down

During the last government shutdown in 2013, the Obama administration completely closed down more than 400 parks and monuments across the country. The administration blamed the shutdown and forced furlough of 20,000 U.S. Parks Service employees on the closures.

The move was widely criticized by Republicans accusing then-President Barack Obama of unnecessarily making the shutdown more upsetting to Americans than was necessary.

Trump WH: We’re Not Going to Politicize a Shutdown the Way Obama Did

Short called it “incredibly frustrating” that the regular appropriations process doesn’t work and Congress continues to lurch from one continuing resolution to another. “We submitted a budget to Congress last February; we’re now in mid-January without a spending bill,” Short said.

Senate Democrats have refused to proceed to normal appropriations bills, all 12 of which were passed on time by the House.

Short noted that appropriations bills need 60 Senate votes to pass, so 10 Democrats would need to join Republicans Friday to keep the government funded for another month. “So the reality is that those ten votes we need to get to 60 is what’s basically bringing the government to a shutdown and stopping funding of our troops.”
