Breaking …Trump to give Congress 6 months to legalize ‘Dreamers’ program or it will be gone….

Donald Trump the GOP Presidential candiadte was for keeping the Obama excutive program to allow children of undoucmented parents to remain in the US and not be deported….

His adopted party types in the Republican party want them and all and any undiucumented man, woman or child removed from America….

Trump’s Dept of Homelend Security head, now Chief of Staff John Kelly has held that immigration law should come from Congress, not a President….

It appears that Kellys view has held the day….

The action now moves to Congress, where Trump can now esacape blame….

The president’s expected announcement is likely to shore up his base, which rallied behind his broader campaign message about the importance of enforcing the country’s immigration laws and securing the border. At the same time, the president’s decision is likely to be one of the most contentious of his early administration, opposed by leaders of both parties and by the political establishment more broadly.

The White House and Congress have tried to pass the issue off on each other – with each arguing that the other is responsible for determining the fate of the approximately 800,000 undocumented immigrants who are benefiting from DACA. Though most Republicans believe that rolling back DACA is a solid legal decision, they are conscious of the difficult emotional terrain. Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch joined Ryan in cautioning Trump against rolling back the program.

The president is likely to couch his decision in legalese. Many on the right, even those who support protections for children brought into the country illegally through no fault of their own, argue that DACA is unconstitutional because former President Barack Obama carried it out unilaterally instead of working through Congress.

Some Republican lawmakers, including Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, have said that Congress needs to pass a law to protect the so-called Dreamers.

“My hope is that as part of this process we can work on a way to deal with this issue and solve it through legislation, which is the right way to do it and the constitutional way to do it,” Rubio told CNN in June.

Trump’s expected decision to scrap DACA represents another challenge for Ryan and fellow congressional Republicans….

  1. Good one.

    Kick it down the road until the Houston mess is long gone.

    And put Congress on the spot too.

    I love this guy!

  2. Yet another disappointment for Trump’s new friends:

    the $ 1 trillion infrastructure proposal, as [quietly] put forth on this busy weekend (ironically Labor Day weekend), only puts in $ 200 billion from Uncle Sam, reversing the customary 80%-20% Fed-state/local split to 20-80

    This demands that much the lion’s share come from state budgets and credit already overstretched by unfunded pensions, school funding in general, and deteriorating school infrastructure in particular.

    Promises made; promises broken.

    1. Republican Governor’s aren’t gonna back a final bill with those ratio’s….


      Another campaign promise in the toilet ….

      And what is Texas gonna want and need?

  3. If a bill gets to the floor. If they use the “health care model” Jack, 12 old white men will write the bill behind closed doors. And in six months we will already be in an election year, making it even tougher to get anything done.

    1. Good point Keith….
      Little will be done once Congress turns to serious Midterm campaigning …
      And I think all that is gonna be compounded by Mueller’s report and grand jury charges handed up….

      Gonna be a rough next 16 months
      Budget stuff is also a MUST DO….

      1. Gonna be hard for Trump to survive all this coming his way…..
        And who knows if Kelly will last thru this stuff?
        Or Trump goes back and hires some yes man flunky
        To help him lose his job but feel better?

  4. Yes,there is an increasing disconnect between the Congressional leadership of the Republicans and the base of the party.

    The latter being much more supportive of Trump than the former.Before Trump the Congressional leadership could semantically appease the base knowing that they didn’t have to really “deliver” anything,

    Now with ,not only the base pressing for evermore Right Wing extreme type policies, but a President who largely agrees with them and is now verbally challenging them to live up to their words, the leadership is largely adrift ,unable to really function as a leadership as they can’t control their own soldiers.

    Indeed ,to save DACA? The Republican leadership may have to depend on the Democrats to pull their chestnuts out of the fire.

    1. Sounds like they go BACK to the John Boehner
      era of working WITH Democrats to get around the Rightwingnuts ?

      The more things change?

      The more they remain the SAME, eh?

  5. And, given their track record of accomplishing anything Jack, they may just fail anyway. Once again making Ryan and McConnell look like legislative failures.

  6. I would imagine that there will emerge some kind of modified program.

    Republicans can’t be seen though as endorsing any handiwork of the despised Obama.Accordingly there will likely be certain revisions in the program

    A problem for the Republicans is that many small business types , whom the Republicans claim to represent, depend on many of these DACA people for their workforce;however, the haters comprise a large part of the Republican “base,”(the refusal of some here to acknowledge that reality notwithstanding.)So the Republicans are going to have to thread the needle which will not make the haters happy.

  7. There is a certain amount of humor in Kelly’s legalistic concerns.

    He works for Donald Trump after all.
