I absolutely LOVE IT! Our President has once again gotten the lovers of open borders from both sides of the aisle to once again expose their faces that are hidden behind their masks. Our President sent the following tweet out earlier this morning:
8 hours later, the Washington Times is reporting that Senator Dick Durbin and Senator Lindsey Graham are moving ahead with their bill whether the President supports it or not!
From the article linked above:
The two senators who struck a deal with each other on an immigration deal signaled Friday they’ll push ahead with their bargain despite opposition from President Trump, saying they sense growing bipartisan support.
“I know the bipartisan proposal discussed at the White House can get a lot of support from both sides. As always, I look forward to considering additional ideas that could make the proposal even better,” Mr. Graham said.
Mr. Durbin, meanwhile, described the deal he and Mr. Graham reached as “a genuine compromise.”
“It addresses all the areas outlined by the president and represents honest concessions on both sides. That is the nature of compromise, and the president and others trying to derail a bipartisan deal do not have an alternative that can earn bipartisan support,” Mr. Durbin said.
The deal they presented to Mr. Trump would include a generous pathway to citizenship for perhaps millions of illegal immigrants, while giving him funding for about 10 percent of his border wall and — at best — a slim cut of about 3 percent in the chain of family migration.
The plan would also eliminate the Diversity Visa Lottery, as Mr. Trump called for, but would use those visas to create a new pathway to citizenship for people from El Salvador, Haiti and other countries currently protected in the U.S. under special humanitarian status. That additional pathway to citizenship — which had not been part of the president’s plans — appears to have been what ignited Mr. Trump’s stark comments on developing countries.
The sad truth is that the Senate will easily have 60 votes in favor of this bill! The Gang of 8 Bill in 2013 actually had 67 Senators. Paul Ryan made a promise to the Freedom Caucus as well as other House Republicans that he would never bring up a bill that at least 50% of House Republicans don’t support. We know there are approximately 30 to 40 House Republicans that would vote yes for this bill.
We will see if Ryan is a man of his word or not. I think deep down inside he would want to bring a vote to the floor that would get 218 House members to vote in favor of it. The problem for him and the Senate is that our President would VETO this SHIT in a NY minute. There is no way in hell that they will get 290 House Republicans to overcome his Presidential Veto. They would also need 67 Senators to do the same. Could they get to 67 Senators? Yes but the Republican Senators would need to come over in large numbers if every Democrat votes yes (which is not a guaranteed in the 10 states that our President won that are up for reelection next year).
I hope and pray that Mitch McConnell allows this vote to take place. I want every single one of these BASTARDS on the record. Imagine how it will play out next year that you voted NO to Tax Reform that is putting more money in the pockets of Americans but voted YES to a bill that allows the parents of DACA recipients to apply for a work waiver every 3 years and stay in this country.
Folks a SUPER MAJORITY actually could happen in this case. The Democrats will truly kill their party once and for all. Lindsey Graham better be primaried in 2020 if he pushes this SHIT.
