Posted on 02/14/2018 11:46:58 AM PST by Innovative
President Trump on Wednesday called on lawmakers to oppose a series of bipartisan efforts to address immigration and resolve the fate of the so-called Dreamers, demanding fealty to his hard-line approach even as more moderate senators converged on a narrower approach.
Senators in both parties are racing against a self-imposed, end-of-the-week deadline to write legislation that could win broad support by increasing border security while at the same time offering a path to citizenship for immigrants brought to the United States as children.
Members of a bipartisan group calling itself the Common Sense Coalition said they have reached a deal to do just that on Wednesday, but it is not clear whether their bill could garner the 60 votes necessary to break a filibuster. The measure would include $25 billion for the presidents proposed wall at the Mexican border and offer a path to citizenship for 1.8 million of the young immigrants, but would preclude their parents from becoming citizens.
The deal could set up a clash between a large and diverse group of senators from both parties against President Trump and the Republican congressional leadership.

I’m waiting for some lower court judge to determine that his veto would be “illegal”.
As Democrats continue to use illegals as pawns.
It’s going to SCOTUS early March, last time I checked. No lefty judge will strike it down afterwards.
Hold your ground, President Trump! This issue is the third rail for many of your base - cannot give too much ground on this.
See, this is why Trump and not Jeb or Kasich or even Rubio. Any one of them would eventually cave on their “demand” to include a wall, end chain migration etc...
Trump says “It has those things or it’s getting vetoed. Period.” and you know he means it
Anchor babies and legal immigration must be addressed. No more 3rd world refugees. No immigrants from Muslim or African countries.
That is why we elected him. GO TRUMP GO
No kidding. It's sad that this might actually happen.
all it takes is 8 rinos if McCain and thad cockran are still sick. Lets name the traitors. FLAKE , MERCOWSKI,GRAHAM, RUBIO, CORNYN, MCcONNELL, HATCH, PORTMAN.RICHARD BURR,TOOMEY,COLLINS,HELLER, ROUNDS, SASSE. THUNE, PERDUE. ETC.
Let there be no doubt DACA only will pass the Senate.
I am encouraged that Paul Rino will not bring it to a vote in the Housebecause “ THE PRESIDENT WILL NOT SIGN IT WITHOUT THE WALL”. I had not expected that. And today’s veto treat is very important and I trust Trump at his word. We win. Daca — GET OUT!!
Like I said DACA is CACA March 6th!
Do it! Do it! Do it! MAGA! :)
Trump Threatens to Veto Immigration Bills that Dont Meet His Demands
Yeah, it’s called “being president”. It’s his job. These headlines steam me.
An example of take it back and do it again...
Imagine a President with the integrity to veto something he believes is wrong! How wonderful!
BUILD THAT WALL!!!!
“The presidents going to have a vote on his concept. I dont think it will get 60 votes, Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina said, adding, The bottom line then is: What do you do next? You can do what weve done for the last 35 years blame each other. Or you can actually start fixing the broken immigration system. If you came out of this with strong border security the president getting his wall and the Dream Act population being taken care of, most Americans would applaud.
Or, you could start deporting Dreamers while getting every Senator on record.
Then try again in 2019.
