    The position the president presents on immigration over the next week will define his presidency. He will either suffer a “read my lips moment” on steroids, or he will rejuvenate his base and put Democrats on defense by standing for Americans first. Which one will it be? If it’s the amnesty route, Republicans will be routed in the midterms. https://www.conservativereview.com/articles/will-trump-get-trumped-amnesty-agenda/

      Pretty much a Trump love fest at Davos today. Cheering, saying good things, wanting to be near him. etc. Nobody publicly wanting to tackle the Trump machine. More deals in the works probably.

      He did make some dollar comments to put a floor in the declining dollar to appease the other countries for today anyway. Weaker dollar gives US exports more advantage.

      Previous day Mnuchin and Ross took dollar down 1% Trump said OK we will be nice and talked the dollar back up a little today as he was talking to international people. All good negotiating.

    Now the hawk and dove immigration extremists will pound the internet to death tonight and tomorrow. Have a nice night.
    Breath in for 5 sec, Hold for 7 sec, let out for 5 secs and relax.

    It is not instant amnesty and citizenship which the doves wanted. It is a very prolonged work and education and good behavior path to citizenship. Probably have to commit to doing as much as legal immigrants to get citizenship. With however the advantage they are already here and thus can get started on citizenship process.

    Many things in the framework for the immigration hawks.

    If Dems refuse this then they show their hand that they really only wanted free and easy stuff. Not a real logical and controlled process.

      There is no such thing as DACA. Obama made up a name for a group illegal aliens. There is no basis in law for such a group. There is no basis in law for that group receiving special treatment.

        Yes, the goal posts have really been moved when wanting existing laws enforced is extreme language.

        And giving them any path to citizenship outside of what already exists is prioritizing them higher than law abiding immigrants waiting in line to do it the right way.

        We don’t need to guess about the outcome of any form of amnesty. We’ve traveled that road more than once.

        And just the talk of it has already raised the rate of illegal youths crossing the border.

They are boxed in and that is why they are squealing so loudly.

    This is a true compromise in that it gives a way for both sides to save face. If the sides think logically then it will pass with both some D and R support. Can D’s get past their emotion?

    R’s are already saying this is graciously more than humane deal, while setting the stage for future to return to a real controlled immigration process.

    Also it does take 10-12 years of good work for these DACA individuals and their nuclear family to become citizens. Commit serious crime (felony) and they are done. Not complete the whole process to get citizenship in the allotted 10-12 years and they are probably out.

        They are trying to keep this one pretty simple and easier to pass. I am assuming that there will be another bill later to take up the E-Verify and other detail implementation things.

        If you make a bill too long and complicated it gets harder to pass as each party nit picks on the items. So e-verify at this time would be a nitpick item but will be addressed in future bills. But we need to pass this started bill first.

        e-verify can be addressed in budget bills as it really needs some more money to do it correctly for the entire country.

        • I dare President Trump to have a rally during the immigration debate. I guarantee he will hear boos about amnesty for illegals, and that’s why he won’t do it.

          I argued the other night immigration hawks have to join the compassion argument, because President Trump will argue like all the RINOs that any solution that doesn’t let a lot of them stay isn’t compassionate. I argued that a repatriation stipend and an opportunity to save for repatriation by extending their stay for a period of time is plenty compassionate. By proposing such a solution you take the compassion argument away from anyone arguing for amnesty.

          President Trump is being told that his polling has improved with hispanics so they will all vote for Trump. I think the polling is bullshit and the only reliable predictor for hispanic voting is ethnicity. And by the way, why isn’t Sundance covering the immigration debate? Is his fascination with the dossier and muh Russia just a hey look a squirrel, or a shiny object to distract treepers from the immigration debate? Sundance has covered muh Russia and economic issues very well, but where is the immigration debate coverage?

    If POTUS can withstand the barrage of garbage thrown at him, I don’t know why we supporters can’t simply wait to hear what he has to say about DACA.

    Durbin has already taken DACA legislation out of the Budget Bill… the Dems already know not to make the passing of a budget contingent upon DACA.

    When POTUS returns he will have the SOTU speech on his mind, as well as what’s going on with all the criminal investigations. I believe the 4-pg. memo will either be released before the SOTU or it will be revealed at the SOTU. Once the memo is released, Mueller has to shut down. I take the President at his word when he says NOW is not the time to discuss DACA… the budget is priority,

    In the vernacular of the young, I don’t see why folks are getting their panties in a wad and issuing ultimatums to POTUS and/or dire predictions for his Administration based on something he hasn’t yet done.

    The Wall is always a given. It can be built quickly once the ok is given (The trans-continental railroad took 5 years to build with old technology). The question is who gets sent back once it is built. If Pres. Trump says 1.8 million might stay with good behavior over 10 years, who knows how many that will be. We were talking about 15 million being given amnesty when Jeb! was running. Looks like Pres. Trump can send as many as he wants back to me. Pres. Trump is giving the Democrats nothing and is looking like the man willing to do deals while the Democrats are saying the DACA deal is dead. Winning.

    Am I wrong in thinking this is all just mid term politics? Simply that the Wall is a non-starter as far as Schumer and Pelosi are concerned – their base is too rabid and too far gone. They have illegals storming their homes, press conferences, blocking off Disneyland because of the *idea* of negotiating with Trump regardless of optics. The Wall symbolizes all that drives them mad besides the luscious golden locks of POTUS himself and they are too big of a faction to be denied due risk of backlash, low enthusiasm, etc. so as the radical left gains power the ability to be logically sound lessens; things like the Schumer Shutdown happen. Things like them inevitably denying and decrying the logically sound -to most middle of the road Americans- immigration “offer” happen. Things like “Obstructionist” really start to burn their own, less radical constituents. They are losing the optics game bigly right now.

    I think I know what our President, Stephen Miller, Senator David Perdue and Senator Tom Cotton are doing! It is absolutely amazing 😉!

    Reducing Chain Migration to only spouses and their children eliminates 5 out of the 7 current categories that are allowed by law through Chain Migration. One immigration reform expert/advocate points out that what our President is calling for is the largest cut in legal immigration since the 1920s. Levels will drop to less than 500K and a lot closer to 250K a year. Getting rid of the Diversity Lottery and using a Merit Based approach for the 50K recipients will attract future immigrants that have the educational background to contribute immediately to our country. These same folks will be able to bring their spouse and children only.

    This completely changes the face of future immigrants. The WALL and technology along the Southern Border will drastically cut the number of people illegally getting into our country. The additional Border Agents will be the human factor for those that try and are successful in getting caught. The additional 10K ICE Agents would give us a deportation force of 15K from the current 5K. Visa overstays and all others will be rounded up 3 times faster with no chance of getting back in. Our President would be able to use his last 6 years to clean a good chunk out.

    The hardcore left realize how vulnerable they are!

    Keep in mind that those 1.8 million DACA eligible recipients won’t be able to try and get citizenship for 10 to 12 years. In the meantime, our President would get all his requests up front. Many of those 1.8 million will be like my mom and dad and be happy with their green card and never apply for citizenship (there are many Americans that can’t pass the Citizenship Test).

    Our President met with Democrat Doug Jones from Alabama and Joe Manchin from West Virginia on Monday. I have a funny feeling he will ask them two to work with Cotton and Perdue (with the WH’s team {Stephen Miller}) to put together a piece of legislation that he will sell to the country.

    Here is the BEST part! Mitch McConnell will honor his commitment to bring this bill to the Senate floor. Remember Mitch said that all types of Amendments can be asked for and voted on. The House has already passed Kate’s Law and Sanctuary Cities Funding Bills. The Senate will have to NOW vote on both of them for every American to see where they stand. A Bill for E-Verify will be put up for vote. A Bill for immediate deportation if caught coming across the border (as the WALL is being built) will be put up for vote. There are many more that I haven’t even thought about that will come up.

    Finally the masks will come off for every Democrat and those Republicans that are really Democrats when it comes to immigration. Our President can say he did everything he could and was as generous as humanly possible if the bill fails. However, there is the real possibility that it will garner the 60 vote threshold in the Senate. Those on the extreme Left and extreme Right don’t matter in this case.

    At the same time the House will move forward with the Goodlatte Bill. It is much more severe than the Senate Bill. If each bill is passed in the House and Senate, it will have to go to Reconciliation where they can take the best parts from both Bills.

      Don’t know why the 10-12 years till citizenship for DACA is believed. Rules are not followed with immigration. It’s by any means necessary. In Cali, before drivers licenses were given to illegals let’s just say it was heard through the grape vine DMV workers sold licenses and changed records.

      The Reagan amnesty multiplied many times over the original number and cases for that amnesty were still going through 20 years later. But the rules state in this amnesty the parents, for example, are not allowed. Again I say what rules. The rules again will be thrown out most likely by all the protests from Dreamers after they get amnesty and then protest for the parents amnesty ’cause it’s not fair. Or from courts, the point is to get in as many as possible.

          The law means nothing for pro illegals because the believe is they are morally and right and therefore can and should break the law. Millions of people have broken into this country and nothing. Law isn’t respected.

          fre!!!! Illegal documents have been illegal since our country starting tracking such, and they are still being passed out and ACKNOWLEDGED by anyone who benefits from an illegal population. The foreign-born population residing in the U.S. reached a record 43.2 million, or 13.4% of the U.S. population according to the American Community Survey, in 2015. The population has more than quadrupled since the 1960s, when the 1965 Immigration and Naturalization Act took effect.

          I don’t know if that includes the number of refugees coming into the U.S., but our country is NOT absorbing this storm well. We have conclaves of foreigners who do NOT speak English, who have no intention of learning our history or principles upon which this country was founded, nor do they have the wherewithal to survive without support from others. The present governmental contractors and NGOs are moving these newcomers around to locations further from the borders.

          FY17 closed on September 30th: September 30, 2017: Donald Trump had set the new ceiling for the year (FY17) at 50,000, but ultimately went over the cap for a total of 53,716 admitted. 23,594 entered the US since Trump was inaugurated in January 2017.

          October 1, 2017: The President set the cap for FY18 at 45,000, and federal contractors wailed.

          January 1, 2018: During the first three months of FY18, the US admitted 5,323 refugees. If this rate continued until September 30th, the last day of the fiscal year, we would admit around 22,000 for the year.

          We Americans have a contract to do our best for our fellow citizens, and we are failing at providing jobs, education, housing and medical care as expected by them given the demonstrations on every front (and apparently as compared to everyone else around the world /sarc). Promises need to be kept.

      Fle this is all very optimistic and I so hope it works out as you say!

      One thought: Now that sundance mentioned the possibility of a newly freed Chief Roberts – anyone here wondering whether there was also something holding McConnell back? Things that make you go hmmm… The tax bill passed. If this one moves along – hmm…

      For the last 8 years we railed and fumed at “do-nothings.” I’m sure many are actually the swamp creatures sundance has proven – but I do wonder a bit whether some were “can’t-do-anything’s” for darker reasons even than just money and power…

      I concur. Also, there will be a federal budget for the first time in what seems like Eons (well, we have gone through global warming and global cooling 8 times each) and Obama Care will be re-engineered to actually work, whether it is scrapped all together or taken down to the foundation and rebuilt.

      Don’t forget the massive infrastructure bill.

      Negative nellies are gonna be down, look at all the negativity leading up to the tax bill and it was just fine.

      Within a year, immigration will be fixed (a 30 year issue), there will be a budget (8 years of CR’s and $10 trillion in pork later), there will be a massive infrastructure bill actually creating Obama’s “shovel ready” jobs, everyone will forgot what this Mueller guy was up too and talks will be leading into tax reform 2.0.

      Almost just too much winning for me, I might have to vote for Oprah in 2020.

      Trump also wants the funding for the wall to be put into a trust fund do that a future congress can’t take it back. Smart.

      Not sure about the “citizenship angle” timeline yet. I hope it only gives them the right one apply at that time (not automatic citizenship).

      I think the idea is to basically put them on a timeline consistent with how long it would take had they applied for a green card, come here, applied for citizenship, go yo yhr back of the line, etc just like everyone else outside the US.

      I don’t like the citizenship aspect, but I remind everyone….they could go to home country, apply and become citizens anyway.

      If they get E-verify and tough employer fines….there will be actual self deportation. If you can’t work illegally many will return home.

      I am sure Stephen Miller, Tom Cotton, etc have crunched all these numbers.

      I am worried that the 1.8 million DACA plus DACA eligible could be off. I’d really like to see the real numbers before deciding how legalization timelines work.
