Senate Dems introduce legislation to roll back Trump's immigration actions
United Press International ^ | February 16, 2017 | Andrew V. Pestano

Democrats in the Senate on Thursday introduced legislation to rescind President Donald Trump's executive order prioritizing deportation of "criminal" undocumented immigrants.

Nevada Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto, Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin and Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hironio introduced the legislation. The Senators said the bill is designed to keep immigrant families together and they urged Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform.

During a press conference, Cortez Masto said Trump's administration has created an "unprecedented deportation machine" following high-profile immigration raids.

The Democratic-led legislation would also roll back Trump's order targeting so-called "sanctuary cities"-- cities that do not deport undocumented immigrants despite federal law. Trump threatened such cities would lose federal funding.

"The president's executive order sends a clear message to our immigrant families: You are a target for deportation," Cortez Masto said.

U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly on Friday defended the actions of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers following reports of immigration raids.

Fams can stay together while going back to Mexico, Especially if they have no interest in learning English.

I guess we can ship all the illegals to Nevada, Illinois & Hawaii, since they seem to like them so much.

Yes, he should and someone needs to remind these Dems that they don't have a majority in either House and that PRESIDENT TRUMP can VETO any damned Bill that gets passed; not that this one will even make it to the floor.

Uh, Trump is going to rescind the Order himself and issue a new one.

Don’t these Morons have more constructive things to do like confirming the rest of President Trump’s Cabinet Nominees?

First it has to make it to the floor.

Last I checked, that’s controlled by the Republicans.

McConnell needs to be running the Senate 24/7 until further notice.

the democrat party—is the party of criminals

they support criminal illegals, criminal sanctuary cities, they are the choice of criminal voters, they are supported by criminal rioters

Everywhere you look the democrats are connected with criminal behavior.

Do you completely trust the Republicans in the US Senate? Some of them are real fond of cheap labor for their sponsors.

The HOR is more "loyal", but only because they have to be re-elected every two years.

JMHO

I guess I can give them a pass on this waste of time, considering how many times the Republicans tried to repeal Obamacare knowing full well it had no chance of passing.

their actions are straight out of FM3-90 appendix B, tactical Mission tasks: Block, Contain, Delay, Disrupt, Fix, Isolate, Suppress. This is war without all the bullets.

Where is the legislation to immunize citizens from the laws so that families can stay together?
Why should foreigners get to break laws and citizens still go to jail?

I am so sick of these people! They abort their potential voters and now they’re desparate to import illegals to take their place. ESAD, dims.

Exactly right. 2/3 of the GOP Senators are Cheap Labor Express stooges.

Alexander, Corker, Hatch, Heller, Flake, Hoeven, Murkowsky, McCain, Graham, Rubio, Ayotte and Kirk voted for the Gang of Amnesty bill. More of them would have if they were needed.

Only Ayotte and Kirk were removed from office.
McCain, Rubio, Murkowsky and Hoeven were all rewarded with another term for their perfidy.

Trump really should go all Eisenhower on them and reconstitute Operation Wetback. End DACA immediately, he’ll get no credit for having a heart.
Deport every illegal alien we can find, the rest will get the message like they did in Eisenhower’s day and vamoose back across the border.

Hawaii has a 2500 mile moat around it and you have to have a valid government issued photo ID to get there unless you stowaway on a boat.

I frankly don’t care what a Senator from Hawaii thinks about illegal immigrants being deported from the mainland. They don’t have people swimming across the ocean to take jobs from Americans or steal their identity.

Call any legislation “comprehensive” and it makes any questionable bill perfectly sound. The media is always in favor of comprehensive anything.

She’s right. It sends a clear message that criminal immigrants are targeted for deportation. The senator from Nevada is brilliant.

Once again these leftist hacks prove they have no concept of right and wrong or legal and illegal; possibly even night and day.

They apparently never learned the lesson about keeping their mouths shut rather than let everyone know they are a fool. Too late now; everyone knows.

Perhaps it would help them to study the immigration laws of other countries where many of them throw them in jail and sometimes forget where the put the key.

Ship them all to Cuckerberg's (#Facecuck) Hawaiian compound.

Since he says he has a globalist vision (for others, not himself).
