The Trump Admin is moving to expel ALL illegal immigrants it can find, wether they have had past promise’s from prior presidential admin or not….This has been the policy of John Kelly when he became Dept. of Homeland Security head less than a year ago….
His explanation was he is just following the law….
In his move up to the President’s chief of staff, he has placed a deputy to him over at DHS…..She seems to be following her old boss , who is still her boss….
Kelly has also explained that if there is to be a change in the law?
It has to come from Congress….
That IS a problem….
This Congress has unable to do much of anything except run around in circles and have its members talk to the media….
With the Republicans in firm control of things?
It seems like their position is to keep stalling and let the government keep rounding up undocumented people and ship them out….
Democrats have signaled that they will try to force action on the ‘Dreamers’ program in the next two final weeks of the 2017 legisaltive calendar … or…They will move to shut down the government….
The fight over “Dreamers” is heating up as the legislative calendar winds down, setting the stage for a year-end clash that’s heightening the odds of a government shutdown.
Lawmakers headed into the long Thanksgiving recess are in stark disagreement over how, and when, to provide legal cover for undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children — legislation both parties say they want after President Trump rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in September.
Behind Trump, GOP leaders are opposed to attaching any DACA provisions to legislation extending government funding, which expires Dec. 8. But Democratic leaders, pressured by their activist base and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, are insisting that the DACA protections be finalized before year’s end. Many Democrats are threatening to withhold support for an omnibus spending bill if the immigration language isn’t included.
With just 12 legislative days left on the calendar — and the Republicans laser-focused on enacting a tax overhaul before Christmas — GOP leaders have some tough decisions ahead. And the question of timing on DACA is becoming every bit as sticky as the substance of the bill.
Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) has repeatedly noted that Trump, in dismantling the Obama-era program, gave Congress until March 5 to come up with a legislative fix. With that in mind, the Speaker has suggested Republicans would be fine addressing the issue early next year.
“I don’t think we should put artificial deadlines in front of the one we already have,” Ryan told reporters this month.
But a number of Republicans, moderates and conservatives alike, want to move more quickly….
There was almost a agreement in September…But when GOPer’s saw Trump cutting a deal with Democrats?…They made sure they added things to derail the ‘agreement’…Share on Facebook
