Posted on 02/04/2018 5:17:08 PM PST by Rockitz
Democratic Senators are rejecting President Donald Trumps 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 were 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 CNNs State of the Union. Durbin said the Democrats would not stage another shutdown, but declared:
I think were 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 Trumps four-part plan including an amnesty for at least 1.8 million illegals explains Trumps 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.

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.
Good luck on that one!
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?
Nazis 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.
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, theres not enough of them to make it happen, not in 2018 anyway!
Watch for a Ryan stab in the back. He relishes such opportunities.
The US Chamber of Crony Fascists will help them!
Great, drive the cheap labor supporters into the open.
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.
“Trump denies voting rights to millions as DACA expires”
Article in WSJ of Friday 2nd lays out that Trump is ready to walk away from any bill that doesn’t contain his requirements.
Fine with me. Let DACA expire and release the deportation hounds.
Durban looking for moderates because moderates are just liberals that are lying.
“GOPs 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.
