Will Congress remain in stalemate over immigration?

Patty Aguilar | 07 February, 2018, 04:15

"We don't need a government shutdown on this", Rep. Barbara Comstock, R-Va., told Trump. The topic of immigration was thrown into spending bill debates after Trump announced a year ago that he was ending the DACA program, which protects undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S.as children.

Coons, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that oversees immigration policy along with other panels, also said that despite Trump's insistence on building a wall, border law enforcement officials in a recent briefing for senators did not make such a request.

"March 5th is rapidly approaching and the Dems seem not to care about DACA". Democrats and Republicans also have yet to agree on a budget plan that would raise existing spending caps for defense and domestic programs for the rest of the fiscal year.

Senator Dick Durbin of IL, the lead Democratic negotiator in the immigration talks, said Sunday on CNN that he doesn't expect the standoff to lead to a government shutdown this week.

Senior White House adviser Stephen Miller listens as President Trump speaks during a meeting with lawmakers on immigration policy in the Cabinet Room of the White House on January 9, 2018.

The President's remarks happened at the same time Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, in separate news conferences, touted the progress on the talks and made clear a deal was close. "There's no education in the second kick of a mule", the Kentucky lawmaker said. While Republicans have enough cushion in the House to pass legislation without a single Democrat, in the Senate legislation requires 60 votes to pass.

In a letter to the president, top Democrats - including Congressman Adam Schiff - warned of a "constitutional crisis" should he use the memo as a pretext to fire the special prosecutor heading an investigation into possible collusion between Trump's presidential campaign and Moscow.

Slow free agency a concern for players' union
Starting pitchers Yu Darvish, Jake Arrieta and Alex Cobb and position players Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas and J.D. No, they are outraged. "It is common at this point in the calendar to have large numbers of free agents unsigned.

Lawmakers are smarting from an embarrassing three-day shutdown last month, when Democrats refused to back a spending measure that did not break the immigration impasse.

Democrats, who have leverage to hold up legislation in the narrowly divided Senate, have threatened to put off a budget accord until a DACA deal is reached. Trump has said he's terminating the program but given Congress until March 5 to renew it, though a federal judge's temporary order preserving DACA has left that deadline's impact murky. Republican lawmakers do not want to extend legal status or a pathway to citizenship for "Dreamers'" extended family members.

But it would also require tightening border security including through $25 billion for Trump's border wall, ending the green card visa lottery, and curtailing the family reunification procedure that prioritizes relatives of U.S. citizens in immigrating to the country. Trump's plan, unveiled last month, provides a path to citizenship for about 1.8 undocumented immigrants, but also asks Congress for $25 billion for the border wall and cuts back on legal lottery and family-based immigration systems.

"Heye primarily faults Democrats for overplaying their hand and "'demanding the impossible" rather than accepting Trump's offer, which he describes as reasonable.

After Democrats shut down the government and then folded without getting anything, Trump could have rubbed their faces in it. He rejected White House criticism of his proposal and said the "worst" thing would be failing to act or only doing a one-year stopgap.

"We'll either have something that's fair and equitable and good and secure, or we're going to have nothing at all", he said last week.
