Immigrant rights activists accuse Schumer of 'bad deal' to end government shutdown
Jan 28, 2018, 00:14
Democrats are fighting the stigma they lost the battle over the government shutdown by joining Republicans Monday to fund the government. Eighty-four percent of Democrats, 74 percent of independents, and 69 percent of Republicans believe that Dreamers should be allowed to stay.
Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) tells WMBD he doesn't see it that way because of the deal struck with Sen. Maj. Ldr.
This so-called continuing resolution keeps the government funded until the second week of February in the hope that the Congress could reach a longer-term budget agreement in the meantime. "So for him to say 'I might promise citizenship, ' at this point he's just talking out of his ass".
In the end, it was hard to deny that Republicans had won, the Democrats had caved - and the Democratic party's progressive wing was furious at Schumer.
But even if a DACA bill is approved by the Senate, Durbin acknowledges there's no guarantee Speaker Ryan would bring it to the floor of the House. In exchange, he said he wanted to offer the Dreamers protection from deportation and an "incentive" of citizenship, perhaps in 10 to 12 years.
"There is a deal to be made", said House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) of immigration. However, Schumer is a big crybaby that wants to be fed his pudding right here, right now and wants to be "first-in-line" to take care of something that everybody wants. "That means they'll no longer be able to work, in some cases go to school, can no longer serve in our military - where 900 of them do now - and be subject to deportation".
For immigration legislation to be enacted into law, the House of Representatives ultimately would have to pass a bill identical to whatever the Senate approves.
Back at the White House Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Trump's press secretary, said that the framework for immigration reform offered by a group of United States senators was "totally unacceptable" to President Trump.
Despite Trump's remarks, Democrats remained cautious ahead of the unveiling of the White House framework. "We can not spend $20 billion to build the wall; at some point, it just becomes nonsense that they're going to do that in exchange for our lives, for what we have endured". "Instead of paying $18 billion for the wall, how about we give you $5 billion to shut up and go back to Florida, okay?"
Durbin remains optimistic about what's ahead.
Everybody seems to know what President Trump wants except President Trump. "He rejected it. So, now it's his turn". Lawmakers also seek to limit which relatives qualify for family visas, addressing the policy immigration control advocates call "chain migration".
"Even if the spending caps were agreed to today, it would take the appropriations committee a matter of additional weeks to come up with a bill we could vote on", Cornyn said. Say what you will about the president, but his actions, and at times words, have led to what may become the first meaningful bipartisan debate and legislation in years.
Sen. Chris Coons of DE said an ultra-conservative plan from the White House "absolutely could" destabilize the bipartisan talks. He made that pledge.
If this was supposed to be a symbol of the nation's most powerful desk, where the president was grappling with the nation's business, it certainly looked like nothing was really going on. "And I have enough trouble paddling my own canoe but I would offer the suggestion that it would be helpful to have some more meat on the bone and I understand he's gonna provide us with some specificity and I think that's good". It's a political ploy pure and simple.
