Democrats Reject Trumpís Amnesty Framework, Seek Alliance With GOPís Business Wing
Breitbart.com ^ | 4 Feb 2018 | Neil Munro

Democratic Senators are rejecting President Donald Trump’s four-part amnesty-and-immigration reform, and are instead working with business-first GOP Senators to pass an amnesty with only token reforms.

“There is not likely to be a DACA deal, though we’re working every single day, on telephone calls and person to person, to try to reach this bipartisan agreement,” Sen. Dick Durbin told Jake Tapper on the February 4 edition of CNN’s State of the Union. Durbin said the Democrats would not stage another shutdown, but declared:

I think we’re making real progress. I want to salute the moderates in both the Republicans and Democratic caucuses in the Senate. They have really been a positive voice, Democrats and Republicans sitting in the same room working to try to solve this problem.

The Democrats’ sharp-elbowed rejection of Trump’s four-part plan — including an amnesty for at least 1.8 million illegals — explains Trump’s Friday complaints that Democrats are not bargaining over his four-part framework offer. The offer trades the amnesty in exchange for a border wall with legal upgrades, plus ending the diversity lottery and winding down the chain migration program over the next 10 years.

Trump won't sign anything that coalition would put together. RATs know they're dead if we cut off their supply of beholden destitute voters. I guess we have to wait until we have a 60/40 split in the senate before this deal gets done.

There is simply NO WAY that the vast majority of Republicans will side with Schumer on Amnesty - even if they want to, they know it’s political suicide.

The other handful of Republicans are just getting their kicks by undercutting Trump and the party.

Trump is right on this, and should paint the Democrats as the ‘whatever it takes to stay in office first, Americans third’ party.

The Dems can’t hide their goal anymore. It’s Illegals or Bust is their new motto. There better be some fall ads from the Republican candidates hammering this point home!

Business wing? My skinny ass.

Why would a business wing deal with communists?

Nazi’s maybe I guess...as long as they are on the inside with fascists...

Good. Craft and submit a bill that grants green cards and that’s all.

See the democrats explain to the “dreamers” that they had a chance to legalize them and punted.

The Rats can try to seduce as many RINOs as want to screw Americans, it just ain’t gonna happen!

Senate, yeah OK, most of them (GOP) are losers and maybe soon outta there but as much as Paul Ryan and the GOP turncoats want to give this country to the NWO crowd and Mexicans, to exploit, there’s not enough of them to make it happen, not in 2018 anyway!

Watch for a Ryan stab in the back. He relishes such opportunities.

Dear GOP Business Wing

You just got a huge tax cut. If you join with the Dems, that tax cut will go away.

Cheap labor......tax cut. You decide, but before you do please realize the American people are fed up.

Fine with me. Let DACA expire and release the deportation hounds.

Durban looking for moderates because moderates are just liberals that are lying.

“GOP’s Business Wing FU America Wing”

The Chamber of Commerce would sell the rope we would all be hung with if they could make a profit on the deal.
