    PATTERNS OF THOUGHT   Shut out of power in Washington, Democratic leaders have been looking for ways to work with President Trump on key issues - but they risk raising the ire of a base that is shifting leftward. WASHINGTON—Nancy Pelosi likely never dreamed that the DREAMers would turn on her. But that’s what happened. Days after the top House Democrat and her Senate counterpart struck a deal with President Trump to help young illegal immigrants gain legal status, several dozen immigration activists overwhelmed a press conference she was holding on the subject. “All of us or none of us,”...
  • GOP bill will offer Dreamers citizenship after ‘extreme vetting’

    Sen. Thom Tillis will introduce his “conservative Dream Act” on Monday that would provide a pathway to citizenship for as many as 2.5 million young undocumented immigrants, but one that is long and involves “extreme vetting.” The North Carolina Republican and cosponsor James Lankford, an Oklahoma Republican, will pitch the plan as “merit-based” relief that must be earned — and, critically, not “amnesty,” according to Republican talking points obtained by McClatchy. But unlike other merit-based immigration proposals that limit new immigrants from entering the country based on their job skills, this proposal would limit who can remain in the country...
  • Why Should We Care About ‘DREAMers”?

    I know Democrats really want us to care about the so-called “DREAMers,” illegal aliens brought to the country as children by their illegal alien parents. And the media desperately wants us to care about them, too. It trots out hand-picked illegals to tell their sad tales of woe, detailed stories designed to tug at heartstrings and trigger emotion to override logic. But one question remains: Why should we care?To be honest, I don’t. I know that’s not socially acceptable to say. Politicians in both parties are falling all over themselves to be seen caring about the fate of these 800,000...
  • Pelosi: Let's Face It, DREAMers' Parents Did Something 'Great' By Breaking Our Laws

    Everyone is against illegal immigration, Democratic politicians always insist as they push for liberal reforms -- just as they pretend that nobody is "pro-abortion." But hardcore elements of their left-wing base belie both of those claims, from the anti-borders zealots to the "shout your abortion" fanatics. What's somewhat unusual, though, is to watch a top party official let the mask slip in such a way that places him or her firmly on the wrong side of public opinion. The reason that DREAMers engender so much sympathy from the general public is that they were brought into the country through no...

    Watching this, I keep thinking of that Hillary clip from 2014 that made the rounds a few weeks ago in which she said “Just because your child gets across the border, that doesn’t mean the child gets to stay.” Conservatives pointed to that as proof that even the reigning Democratic nominee opposes a DREAM amnesty, but huffy lefties complained that Clinton was being taken out of context. She was referring to children who had *recently* crossed the border, they said, not to children who were brought here years ago and had built a life in America. Obviously Democrats don’t support...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Wednesday that illegal immigrant parents who brought their children to the U.S. in defiance of the law “did a great thing,” giving the country an infusion of successful young people. Mrs. Pelosi’s comments strike a dissonant note from many analysts, who while saying the Dreamers are sympathetic since they had no say in the decision, say the parents do deserve blame for creating the problem. He comments came after she was shouted down by protesters earlier this week who interrupted her at an event, and demanded she do more to protect all illegal immigrants....

    While still historically low, President Donald Trump's approval rating is on the upswing, according to a new Politico/Morning Consult poll. After a lowest-ever showing of 39% in last month's poll, the most recent survey finds his overall approval rating up at 43%. Among Republicans, 80% gave their approval, up from 73% in the previous poll. Among Democrats 40% approve of his performance, up from 35% last month. The improvement likely has to do with Trump's recent signals he is willing to compromise with Democrats on a successor program to DACA, the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. "Trump's post-Charlottesville...

    Sept. 20 (UPI) -- Three Democratic congressmen were arrested outside Trump Tower in New York City while protesting for immigrants' rights. Reps. Raúl M. Grijalva of Arizona, Luis V. Gutierrez of Illinois and Adriano Espaillat of New York were arrested on civil disobedience charges. Melissa Mark-Viverito, speaker of the New York City Council, and six other protesters were also arrested. "I stood in front of Trump Tower today with a whole lot of DREAMers, immigrants and Americans to say enough to Trump and his criminalization of our immigrant communities," Grijalva wrote on his official Facebook page. In a statement, Guttierez...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was interrupted in spectacular fashion during a San Francisco press conference Monday by an angry group of immigration activists. But one of the Big Three broadcast networks decided to completely ignore the scene, despite a history of covering similar anti-Trump interruptions. The dependably liberal ABC’s “World News Tonight” skipped the story, while rivals CBS and NBC properly covered the event. “NBC Nightly News” anchor Lester Holt called it a “chaotic scene,” while “CBS Evening News” anchor Anthony Mason said Pelosi was “shouted down.” Both of ABC’s rivals aired video of Pelosi’s press conference getting interrupted...

    Three Democratic members of Congress have been arrested on disorderly conduct charges at a protest outside Trump Tower. U.S. Reps. Raul Grijalva, of Arizona; Luis Gutierrez, of Illinois; and Adriano Espaillat, of New York, were among a small group of demonstrators who sat down in the street on New York’s Fifth Avenue on Tuesday and refused to move. The lawmakers were handcuffed and led away. Police say they were issued desk appearance tickets and released. The protesters were demanding that Congress pass legislation protecting thousands of young immigrants from deportation.....

    A group serving as a central hub of information for congressional town halls was founded by a former Hillary Clinton campaign staffer and its parent company is located at the same address as an organization funded by liberal billionaire George Soros. Democrats have insisted that recent town hall outbursts against Republican politicians occurred organically, likening them to the Tea Party, while President Donald Trump yesterday tweeted that the "so-called angry crowds in home districts of some Republicans are actually, in numerous occasions, planned out by liberal activists. Sad!" The Town Hall Project, a group that serves as a one-stop shop...

    A radical group linked to rogue billionaire George Soros has been providing scripts containing anti-Trump talking points for constituents to read aloud during congressional town hall meetings. One of the scripts distributed by the Revolutionary Love Project encourages town hall participants meeting with their member of Congress to accuse the Trump administration of – wait for it – “xenophobia, racism, and Islamophobia.” Constituents are urged to use those precise words to “forcefully condemn” President Trump’s immigration and border security initiatives, Aaron Klein reports at Breitbart News. Information about the scripts came as leaked audio from anti-Trump activists associated with the...
  • Nightmare: DACA Amnesty DREAM Act Will Cost $115 Billion Thanks to Obamacare

    Taxpayers in the United States will face a steep bill if the Trump administration signs legislation to extend legal status to so-called “Dreamers,” the illegal aliens who arrived as children and are now protected under the Obama-holdover unlawful executive order known as DACA. The cost of a legislation to legalize childhood arrivals is likely to be far higher than earlier attempts because of Obamacare’s health insurance subsidies. The Affordable Care Act subsidizes the costs of health insurance for millions of Americans and would likely foot the bill for many of those whose residency in the U.S. would be legalized by...

    House Speaker Paul Ryan said during a Friday interview Democrats will “have to stomach” the fact that President Donald Trump will advance immigration reform. Ryan spoke with WISN’s Vicki McKenna at length about immigration and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. “They’ll have to stomach the fact that yes, this president will be successful in doing something that hasn’t been done for years, which is advancing some immigration reform, advancing security, advancing enforcement, and advancing a law that fixes the DACA problem so these kids don’t get kicked out,” Ryan said. “That would be a victory for this...

"But very importantly, what we want: We have to have a wall," Trump said. "If we don't have a wall, we're doing nothing." ...Another person familiar with the meeting said that as the president and Schumer were going back and forth, hashing out the confines of the agreement, the president kept referencing DACA, while Schumer kept talking about the DREAM Act. After Mulvaney piped in to make clear the distinction,...

    Found it. This one was hard to find. Durbin and Grahmnestys Dream Act of 2017. Trump is brain dead if he gets on board with this. There is no discussion that the Dream Act is America First or MAGA. We are being sold out. No way to spin this as 12D chess. Per Dream Act 2017, Under Section 3, per the last bulletin... "There is no numerical limitation on the number of people who may be granted permanent resident status on a conditional basis under the Act". First we thought DACAs was 800,000. Now we are hearing close to 4...

    The House GOP's staunchest opponent of illegal immigration said President Trump is now at risk of losing his base of supporters after supposedly cutting a deal to legalize more than 800,000 young people who arrived in the United States illegally as children. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said he stands by a Wednesday night tweet that proclaimed Trump's base "is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond repair," after he dined with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. The two Democrats left the White House proclaiming they had reached a deal with Trump on...
