GOP Senators to Introduce Immigration, Border Security and DACA Framework Tomorrow…

Apparently a group of GOP Senators are proposing an outline (pdf below) for the Republican senatorial legislation for immigration reform.  A first review of the seven  senators outlined in the group shows a majority-minded tilt toward the CoC position(s), with a dose of Chuck Grassley sprinkled in to make their GOPe mix palatable.

With the 1000mg bitter pill of a massive budget bill still blocking our trachea, upon first glance we note an ideological similarity here to the failed Obamacare repeal construct (amid the big picture analysis). The backdrop is a faux-deadline of March 5th where POTUS asked congress to solve the DACA issue. Here’s the press release:

WASHINGTON D.C. -A group of U.S. Senators tomorrow will introduce a common-sense proposal aimed at providing legal certainty for undocumented children brought to the United States by their parents and preventing others from falling into the same legal limbo in the future.

Their proposal, which mirrors the White House framework announced by President Trump, provides a generous opportunity for approximately 1.8 million DACA or DACA-eligible immigrants to earn citizenship while strengthening our nation’s border security and enforcement measures to reduce illegal immigration.

The Secure and Succeed Act, sponsored by Senators Cotton, Grassley, Cornyn, Tillis, Perdue, Lankford, and Ernst, appropriates $25 billion for real border security such as physical and virtual fencing, radar and other technologies. It also provides for additional personnel for border control and ends key loopholes in current law that allow dangerous criminals to enter our country.

The legislation prospectively limits family-based immigration to the nuclear family and reallocates the Diversity Visa lottery. Their proposal generously grandfathers all pending family-based visa applications in order to reward those who chose to follow the law and immigrate legally. The allotment for the Diversity Visa lottery will be reallocated to reduce this backlog and the employment-based visa backlog.

“This is the only bill that has a chance of becoming law, and that’s because it’s the only bill that will truly solve the underlying problem. It will protect those eligible for DACA but also make sure we don’t end up back here five years from now. By addressing our border security needs and limiting family sponsorship to the nuclear family, it goes far beyond the other half measures that have been proposed. This bill is generous, humane, and responsible, and now we should send it to the president’s desk,” Tom Cotton said.

“This legislation is a reasonable approach to shielding children illegally brought to our country through no fault of their own while also taking the meaningful steps to ensure nobody finds themselves in the same situation in the future. This is a rare opportunity to fix a real problem and protect the country in a thoughtful and compassionate way. We simply have to correct the loopholes in current law that allow dangerous criminals to enter and remain at large in our country. Our proposal is supported by the President, who’s come a long way to reach a compromise. This is the only Senate proposal that has any chance of passing the House and being signed into law. If my colleagues are serious about actually finding a real and permanent solution to the DACA crisis, they should be ready and willing to support this compromise,” Chuck Grassley said.

“This proposal provides a common-sense, permanent solution for nearly two million people who find themselves in limbo. The Secure and Succeed Act gives us the opportunity to help these individuals and build the trust of the American people by securing our borders and enforcing our immigration laws,” John Cornyn said.

“This is a common-sense compromise that accomplishes a number of goals that both parties have long supported. It offers a fair and compassionate solution for DACA youth to earn naturalization, and it effectively secures our borders to help prevent future illegal immigration and stop drug and human trafficking. It also provides a path forward for modernizing our broken immigration system so it can be more merit-based and reflective of the changing economic and labor needs of our nation. This legislation is the only proposal that the President supports, and the open amendment process will give Senators the opportunity to improve the baseline proposal and get it signed into law,” Tom Tillis said.

“President Trump has been very clear on what he will sign into law, and this is it. This is a great deal and the only solution that fully addresses the four pillars in the President’s framework. Now it is up to Republicans and Democrats in both chambers. If people really want to solve the DACA situation, secure our border, and fix the flaws in our current system that incentivize illegal immigration, they should be eager to support this plan,” David Perdue said.

“We have a unique opportunity to finally get something done on the four immigration areas that leaders in Congress and the President agreed must get done – DACA, border security, the visa lottery, and family sponsorship reform. It’s important to do this in a way that prevents repeating this conversation again ten years from now. I call on my colleagues to put aside partisanship and posturing to have an honest debate about decades-long immigration issues and practical solutions that can pass both Houses of Congress and be signed into law. There are many immigration proposals being floated in the Senate that the House will not pass and the President won’t sign. Too many families are counting on us to do the right thing. Now is the time to get this done,” Jim Lankford said.

“We must ensure a path forward for those who were brought here through no fault of their own as children, while also enforcing our laws, putting an end to illegal immigration, and strengthening our border security. This framework is a step toward addressing the legal, economic, and security concerns that are present in the current debate and the unique challenges that the DACA-eligible population faces, and I urge my colleagues to support this proposal,” Jodi Ernst said.

The Secure and Succeed Act includes the four reform pillars agreed to during a bipartisan meeting with congressional leaders and President Trump in January: legal status for DACA recipients; increased border security; an end to chain to migration; and an end to the diversity visa lottery.  (link)

    Our President can count votes and also do the immigration math.

    I think he will sign something close to this with rock-solid assurances that the green card reductions brought about by changes to existing law (chain migration, diversity lottery, etc.) compute to about 330,00 a year. If he gets close to that number, then it would take less than six years to equal the 1.8 million so-called Dreamers allowed to stay. The dreamers then become a wash. I also expect him to hold firm on the 1.8 million number.

    What bothers me most about this is the lack of details on family migration. We must insist upon a return to real, enforced and verified SPONSORSHIP. An alien sponsoring a family member must assume full financial support for the new arrivals. The new arrivals are totally ineligible for any government benefits or programs for the duration of the sponsorship period. With sponsorship enforced, I don’t think we will see the level of chain migration that some here expect.

      Funny how people on here were defending the bogus 700k number and swearing it was no more than that (that they couldn’t support more than that), now those same people are defending the 1.8 million number as okay. It’s not okay, stop with the silly math that this will all somehow balance out in 6 years, it won’t and you know it. You can’t control future administrations or congresses, christ we are in this mess because neither bothered to enforce the law and allowed these illegals to be raised in the country (and we paid for it). Any amnesty will encourage more illegal immigration no matter the “barriers” and to tie a fix to illegal immigration with legal immigration is asinine. Address the issues separately.

        Given the number of votes the President can count on in the Senate, would you agree that the worst thing that could happen at this point is that all proposals fail and that absolutely nothing changes? Insufficient money for border security….visa lottery continues….chain migration out of control….no merit based immigration…..etc.

        That’s my starting point. Doing nothing is unacceptable. Gain what ground you can now, regroup, then fight again when you have more strength (i.e. votes).

        You are RIGHT. One request, though. Would you use the term “illegal alien” or “colonists) rather than “illegal immigrant.” They are not immigrants in any sens of that word. They are here as colonists–and millions more are coming, with FedGov’s support and blessing. We must say NO to any “plan” that doesn’t build–not “fund”–the Wall, and that doesn’t STOP chain migration, period. And this lottery thing, too. Axe it totally and forever. Nothing else is acceptable, and anything else is a betrayal. We were given promises during the campaign, and THAT is what we voted for. This is Washington’s LAST CHANCE. And probably ours, too. Our children won’t have a country of their own. We are down to the wire.

      DACA’s are a minuscule number compared to chain migration. Three quarters of a million chain immigrants admitted every year since 1990. I repeat, three quarters of a Million chain immigrants admitted every year since 1990. 27 YEARS of unlimited immigrants coming here. Many living off of us financially. DACA in importance is the wrong target for complaint and always has been. The Dem’s fell for supporting it as number one and lost. Of course they had no choice it’s hard to have some immigrant on TV who’s been responsible for bringing in thousands of immigrants just because they are in a chain, while DACA illegals can be portrayed as innocent victims of their parents choices. Trump wanted merit based acceptance for DACA’s and if that was the case many would never even qualify. I’m really tired of seeing some accepting DACA as the most important element of immigration reform when their numbers are nothing compared to chain migration even if everyone of them is accepted which won’t be the case if Trump’s plan is the one accepted. This to me is why we need to ignore the DACA, DACA mantra of the left and concentrate on what’s important, building the wall, ending chain migration and the lottery.

      My legal immigrant now citizen wife wanted her mother to immigrate to the US. She would have been fully eligible to collect Social Security and Medicaid in rather short order. So an 80 yr old woman who never worked a day in her life in America could actually collect Social Security payments and free Medicaid healthcare. Apparently, we can thank Jimmy Carter for that boondoggle. Social Security is already going broke but chain migration immigrants can actually apply for it and receive it. I suppose it pisses me off more that the illegals can just jump the border, show up and receive a handout much faster and smoother.

      So as long as they are killing chain migration they had better kill the Social Security checks to the immigrants who never worked in the USA. You didn’t pay into it you shouldn’t receive a payment out of it.

          And it is CRAZY that they even allow 20 year olds at all. They usually have not been in school for years, have no school documentation to prove what grades they have successfully completed and they do not speak any english. This means we put them in the 9th grade with 14 year olds. They will not stay in school since they can not graduate in time so why enroll? We tried to “counsel” these particular ones to take english classes and try a vocational school of some sort and they were not having it at all because those cost money. So even though we explained they would have to leave school before graduating because they would “AGE” out, they still demanded to be enrolled. They just wanted the free english classes and free lunch! This takes teacher’s time away from real students and puts real students in danger by being around such older students. I was shocked beyond belief that this was even allowed.

            The schools encourage them to enroll, because each one of them represents thousands $ per year for the school. Same reason suspension and expulsion have been conveniently characterized as racist, so “in-school” suspension is the only remedy allowed. Anything to keep them on school property. The schools are utterly complicit. I’m certain that the vast majority of Americans are not even aware that 21 year olds are allowed to be “high school students.” There is no way on Earth that I would be a teacher in a public school today.

    Six Ways the GOP Is Trying to Lose the Amnesty and Immigration Fight
    http://www.breitbart.com/2018-elections/2018/02/11/six-ways-gop-trying-lose-amnesty-immigration-fight/

    GOP Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has devised an immigration debate this week which can help an alliance of Democrats and roughly 15 business-first Republican Senators push an amnesty through the Senate while blocking President Donald Trump’s pro-American reforms.

    “I think this is an effort that is set up to fail [Trump and] is not set up to help Americans,” said Rosemary Jenks, government relations director at NumbersUSA. She continued:

    This [Senate debate] is a very serious threat — screwing up the immigration debate will cost the Republicans the House and potentially even the Senate [in November], which means President Trump gets impeached.

    The article goes on to list and discuss the “Six ways”, which they label A through F.
    For some reason, 1 through 6 must have been thought not to be an option.

    ‘Immigration Reform’ should be concentrated on educating Members of Congress, educating the members of the U.S. Supreme Court, and educating the Muddied Stream Media that the Sheriffs and Judges across the nation should enforce the immigration laws in effect as January 19, 2009.

    Current attempts by the Uniparty to drum-up ‘Immigration Reform’ is nothing but a farce which is only designed to see which side of the Uniparty can foster more illegal alien votes at the voting booth.

    A person is still an illegal alien, not DACA, not dreamer, if they are present here in the U.S. in violation of the immigration laws as of January 19, 2009.

      I agree and then some. We are all, including myself musch of the time, prone to using and
      habitually believing what these gov’t hacks are telling us, as if their use words match our understanding of those words. They do not! Almost all of their speech is ‘political correctness’.

      I’m afraid that the only remedy is rude, crude, and unrefined bluntness, with no goal of making friends. I don’t know that I’ve succeeded in that, but I do know that it is at least a part of President Trump’s ability to bully and finesse his way to victory in diverse situations.

      It is not enough to simply stop illegal immigration with a wall and sufficient manpower, but any fool knows that you must stop the inflow before removing the problems.

      It is equally important to remove those who have trespassed previously to building the wall and boosting border control manpower.

      Perhaps a simple analogy would clear up the importance of removing the previous trespassers. Every lawmaker in the nation needs this jammed in their face every day:

      Suppose you have a hole in your roof and heavy rains are destroying your home, including all your furniture, carpeting, and even causing dangerous molds to grow in your home, thereby endangering your children and even your pets.

      You surely must fix the roof to keep any more rain water from adding to the water that has already flooded your floors, but it is equally important to remove all the rain water that has come into the home through the damaged roof.

      Only an idiot would consider the situation properly fixed by only repairing the roof. A child can understand the absolute need to clean up the water that is in every room, and which is creeping up the drywall inside the walls of the home and laying out of sight under the carpet and wooden flooring. The water left to stand inside the home will surely destroy the lives of all of the family unless it is removed.

      Yes, you may need to rip up all the carpet and replace all the wooden floor treatments, but it is your home you are trying to save, so you must do those things.

      Illegal immigrants are no better than rainwater that has fallen through a hole in your roof, and further entry of even one more illegal must be stopped.

      Then the remaining illegals must be removed and the damage they have done must be repaired and replaced with citizens and properly vetted legal immigrants, who agree to assimilate to our national standards.

      No immigrants whose beliefs include any removals from our U.S. Constitution and its Bill of Rights should be allowed to visit this nation, no less to be admitted to residency or citizenship. The language of the U.S. is English and all laws, road signs, and public notices should be posted only in the English lanuage, not spanish or french or any other language.

      No applicant for immigration who believes in laws foreign to our legal system should be allowed into the country, and all those who advocate erasing our legal system should be removed and never allowed back in. Members of any organizations, including cults or foreign religions, faiths, or churches that advocate dissolution of our United States of America, should be allowed to enter the nation.

      America is FOR Americans, and it is not open to every person who wants to be here for their own purposes, especially when they lie about their motives for requesting entry.

    In my defense, I hadn’t seen the election time republican moves and having only recently moved to Texas from California (back in 2005). Cornyn was more conservative at election time than anybody I’d seen since Sam Brownback was in congress.

    I know he’s going to say a bunch of stuff that just grates on my nerves. I am hoping this public airing will dissuade TCTH from banning me.

        The Gospel says when you come across someone, in the course of your regular travel for work, who is obviously a victim NOT OF THEIR OWN DOING and injured and in need of help just getting out of the ditch, the Samaritan was doing God’s work by helping the stranger when he needed. The help was only to get the victim healed and out of misery, not life time care.

        The Gospel DOES NOT say you will travel to foreign lands and gather those you may find there and bring them back to YOUR HOME and care for them at your expense for the rest of their lives.

        The Gospel DOES NOT say put a big sign on your front gate: FREE FOOD FOR EVERYBODY and HEALTHCARE FOR LIFE

          Absolutely right. Also, the Good Samaritan paid out of his own pocket for the “certain main who went down from Jerusalem to Jericho.” He did not collect money from the general public to give away. NOR did the Good Samaritan take the “certain man” into his own home. He put him up in an inn and then, as you point out, that was the end of that. So when this Lankford guy couches his betrayal in biblical lingo, he’s doing nothing more than what Satan himself can do: quote the Scriptures. But Lankford knows that most people who CALL themselves “Christian” are soft in the head. AND totally ignorant of the Scriptures. Their “religion” is a kind of therapeutic deism: Everybody should be happy all the time, and God’s function is to see to that. For these people, god is a sort of cosmic vending machine. And silly emotions are the foundation for public policy.

    From Fox & Friends interview this morning with Kris Kobach:

    “I don’t believe a free-wheeling debate in the senate is going to produce anything that is very good based on what they’re talking about right now. Look, the president set down a very clear marker saying, ‘If you want this amnesty for DACA recipients, you have to give the American people the wall. You have to get rid of the visa lottery, you have to get rid of chain migration.” And I would add one more thing that’s in the Goodlatte bill on the House side, you have to give us E-verify. If that’s the term of the deal then the president should feel comfortable signing it. But if it doesn’t have those four things he should walk away. I don’t think anything the senate is going to produce is going to have those four things.”

    I would like to see the wording of the actual bill.

    The Border Security Trust Fund section is pretty nebulous. It indicates a trust fund for the completion of a 10-year border security plan. Is this for actually building a wall, or is this just for completing a plan to build a wall? This summary does not make that clear. I’ve read in some other comments and articles that at least a couple of contractors have said the wall could be completed in 2 to 3 years for somewhere between $10 and $15 Billion. Building the Wall should be the first item on the list of things to do and be clearly stated as such in the actual bill submitted to Congress for a vote. Nothing else should be done until the wall across the southern US border has been completed. The additional resources for etc., etc., etc., should also be very clearly and specifically identified. That could be done in a few sentences; we don’t need a 2,200 page bill to do that.

    The items in the Additional Border Security Measures should also be very clearly and specifically identified and defined. This section in it’s current form is also nebulous.

    The items in the Border Security Authorities also need to be specifically and clearly defined. When does Catch and Release end? What are the penalty increases for human smugglers? How would the bill make it easier to remove smugglers? Kate’s Law – yea! What are the specific provisions to stop fentanyl smuggling? What are the what’s and the how’s of the resources to conduct expedited court hearings? What are the inadmissibility/removability grounds updates? What are the terms of the expedited removal of Visa overstays? What happens when the release of criminal aliens is ended? Do get have to keep and take care of them? Are they immediately deported to wherever they say they came from? The E-verify program MUST be mandatory, it MUST be easy to use, and the E-verity database MUST be kept up to date.

    The Diversity Visa Lottery should be ended with no reallocation of those Visas. We have enough of our own people and problems to take care of without adding more.

    Enforcement of the permanent DACA solution criteria must be clearly and specifically spelled out. If the conditions are not met, what happens and when?

    Chain migration must be completely ended.

    Finding and implementing a way to prevent any non-US citizens from receiving welfare must be added to this. I shudder to think how many legal non-US citizens and illegals are getting welfare, food stamps, social security, free education, etc. My ancestors came here in the late 1800s. They had what they brought with them. They were not expecting handouts of any kind. They worked in the steel industry, in mines, and on railroads. Some of them were killed while on the job. They made their own way and followed the legally defined process to become Citizens of the USA. I am extremely glad and grateful they made the sacrifices they made. I cannot imagine being born anywhere else other than the US of A.

    Eh not surprising. Here’s something I was thinking about the other day. There was a subtle piece of the SOTU when PTrump was discussing the DACA offer (same as this). I’m paraphrasing but I think he said a requirement would be that anyone included within the “1.8 million” would have be of good moral character and not be felonious. It’s in this proposal. Isn’t that judgement up to the Executive Branch?

    So let’s game this out as if my thought is on the right track. Congress passes a bill with the “1.8 million” DACA piece, e-verify, full border funding and ending chain migration (obviously there will be pork but those are the highlights). Then the good moral character vetting begins. See where I’m going with this? This would be classic Trump. Everyone wins. Democrats get a hollow victory with DACA, PTrump actually looks compassionate and Ptrump gets most of the store. Sure I think he’ll take a temporary hit with his base but all that will be forgotten once the wall breaks ground. Meanwhile in the background many of the 1.8 million DACAs get deported because they’re either felonious or of bad moral character.

    People ARE being deported; not enough, but more than you think. I’ve been watching a series of sob story youtube videos depicting what happens to illegal aliens who’ve been given the boot. The videos are unwittingly making the case for deportation. At least for young, DACA-aged people, it’s fine. Turns out there’s a crazy demand for English speakers with at least some American education in all sorts of Mexican and Latin American businesses. The pay is better than average, and the cost of living is far lower.

    An interesting aspect was Mexico’s utter lack of interest in providing any assistance to the returnees. The mentality is: They’re Mexicans. This is Mexico. They’ll work it out.

    It’s impossible to come away from watching those videos without concluding that Uncle Sucker is a fool, and American citizens have been totally taken advantage of. Once the young deportees end up back home, they shrug and land on their feet. No one is being served by the maudlin sentimentality enmeshing any discussion of a sane immigration policy.

      And flu too, potentially, I’d add.
      What’s to say that some of these strains of flu haven’t come up from the south?

      There was an enterovirus outbreak couple years ago with polio-like symptoms in some cases.
      Detected since 1965 but only a handful of cases per year, then an explosion maybe 2013 or 2014 with the huge wave of illegals at that time.

      I caught Snopes lying about it at the time.

        I’ll also add that I think Barky’s policy of spreading illegals all over the US by bus and plane was at least partly so that disease “hotspots” wouldn’t be evident as an epidemiologic signature.

    Above all don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point where he can not
    Distinguish the truth within him,or around him, and loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.

    Biggest problem is ALWAYS the Amendments made down the road. Remember how the Bush wall was scuttled by Janet Reno?

    I’ve signed petitions and have called my Congressman (Joyce) and swamper senator Portman. I will do whatever it takes to keep Trump from making a huge mistake with amnesty and having that albatross hung on him.. I do believe it will cause him to lose majorities in both houses and be a one term president. Amnesty is not a winner with Americans. That is why the democrats never vote for amnesty. They are happy to have republicans take that vote to do it for them. I think if we want to protect president Trump and win him a second term we must save him from doing an amnesty deal.

      Agreed 100%. Amnesty without a full set of measure and most of Trump’s base stays home.
      Stephen Miller needs to intersect with Trump on this. He knows the issue inside out.

      You’re sounding like Peter Strzok now. You really think Trump is a stupid man and will make a mistake?

        Seriously? That is what you interpreted my post to mean? Let me be clear. I am doing what the tea party patriots and Angel mom’s asked to be done. Call your reps and senators and white house and tell them to reject this immigration proposal. But if you think that they and I and the tea party sounds like Peter Strzok then …..whatever.

        It all depends on whether the President has all the necessary information.

    • I agree. I have Portman and Renacci, both of whom represent themselves and whoever pays them. No town halls, except by phone with a one second notice, no questions and Renacci was to call my husband back for questions – no call, of course. Now he wants to be our Senator, backing out on aspirations for governor when Josh Mandel had to drop out. He called Paul Ryan his “good friend”in an email. Christine Hagen is running for Renacci’s spot and she is a true Conservative from what I can see, but we need to get better candidates in 2018 for Renacci’s Senatorial run and in five years for the Never-Trumper Portman. Not sure how to do this
