Trump To Dems: There Will Be No Clean DACA Bill

Since Trump ended DACA and threw it over to Congress, which is where it belonged in the first place, rather than a presidential directive, which was extra-Constitutional and temporary, supporters of illegal alien “Dreamers” have been calling for a “clean” bill, meaning they want nothing in the bill other than legalizing, in some fashion, the Dreamers. They do not want border security, interior security, funding for a wall or ICE or the judges necessary to make the determination to deport illegals. Trump put that idea in its grave

(Politico) Democrats seeking a deal to protect so-called Dreamers from deportation must be prepared to agree to a package that includes several White House priorities, including a border wall and reforms to the U.S. immigration system, President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter Friday morning.

“The Democrats have been told, and fully understand, that there can be no DACA without the desperately needed WALL at the Southern Border and an END to the horrible Chain Migration & ridiculous Lottery System of Immigration etc. We must protect our Country at all cost!” Trump tweeted.

So, no “clean” bill. If the Democrats want anything, they’re going to have to compromise

Democrats have said they will not sign on to a bill next month to keep the government funded without a deal to protect Dreamers, undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children and in many cases have no relationship to their country of birth.

Are Dems really willing to shut the government down over illegal aliens? If so, Trump should put those Barrycades around things Democrats love.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and her Senate counterpart, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), are set to meet next Wednesday with House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) at the White House, where the congressional leaders are expected to work on a DACA deal as part of negotiations to avert a government shutdown.

Well, we’ll see where this goes. Expect Trump to take a hard line to get many things related to stopping illegal immigration, and reducing the type of legal immigration that brings people who end up on government assistance, chain migration, no assimilation, people who hate the U.S., terrorists, and so forth.

    The government shut down really helped the GOP back in the day. They actually gained more seats in the 2014 election after shutting it down in 2013. So the dems saw that and are hoping for the same results.

    I think it will backfire because the left raised taxes and screwed up healthcare the right has cut taxes and the economy is roaring to life.

    We will see how this plays out. I think the right wants to see the DEMS shut down the government so the left can hang something around their necks.

    Except the Dems don’t have enough votes by themselves to do anything. Without Republican allies, they are impotent.

    The House approved the spending bill, 231 to 188, with 14 Democrats joining a majority of the chamber’s Republicans. The Senate quickly followed, voting 66 to 32 to avert a federal shutdown Friday, with 30 Democrats opposed, including both California senators, largely because the bill failed to resolve the fate of the young immigrants known as Dreamers. ​​​

    So even if the left votes totally against the bill they can stop congress from passing it in the senate. No problem. It has to pass both houses.

    • Fargo says:

      I guess I should add that with 49 senators voting for it I find it highly likely that they will not be able to find 2 mavericks in the senate like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz who would vote against it and stop the bill. But two senators out of 51 is not going to reflect on the right like it will the left.

      Especially when you consider this:

      [T]heir own members upended that strategy almost immediately: House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) put his foot down, telling GOP leaders that defense hawks would not start 2018 without a budget boost for the Pentagon.

      That sent leadership back to the drawing board. Now, the latest strategy includes passing two short-term funding bills or “continuing resolutions” to keep the government running at current levels until a bigger spending deal is reached. House GOP whips told vote-counters in a closed-door meeting Thursday morning that the first would extend government funding from Dec. 8 to Dec. 22; the second would likely last until sometime in January.

      In other words the freedom caucus is willing to step in along with the defense hawks who all want a slice of the pie and a big say in what the new year holds or more accurately the next vote on the continuing resolution.
