Trump seeks $25 billion for border wall, offers 'Dreamer' citizenship
Jan 28, 2018, 00:15
Blame was spread among all involved.
But the shutdown did highlight three realities for Democrats going forward.
The current continuing resolution ends February 8, which leaves even less time for Congress to come up with a solution for the Dreamers.
Almost half of independents blamed Trump as well.
But he was inching closer to the gamble that most of his base will accept the trade-off if it means getting started on a limited wall this year, along with improved security systems along the border. "Get out of America you scum Schumer", one reviewer wrote. In 2010, President Obama's Democratic Party lost more than 50 House seats as conservative candidates pounced on Obamacare and the scary reincarnation of Big Government liberalism.
"There were no commitments made in the House" as legislators worked to end the government shutdown, House GOP Whip Steve Scalise of Louisiana said Monday, warning against any "amnesty" measure. "We can not spend $20 billion to build the wall; at some point, it just becomes nonsense that they're going to do that in exchange for our lives, for what we have endured".
Over the weekend, Congress forced a government shutdown over immigration policy disputes, including funding for the wall and the future of DACA recipients.
The DACA program has been politicized. Since the Democrats vote in a block - not like Republicans, who are scattered all over the place - the 48 Democrats have blocked every piece of legislation the Senate Republicans have proposed during 2017. The Dems may not want to deal with these other issues, so it would be very hard for them to vote "no" since DACA will be part of the deal.
The shutdown represented not only dysfunction, bad faith and incompetence by congressional Republicans, Faris said, but also provided "fresh evidence that the party would be basically incapable of governing the country even if their margins in both chambers were substantially increased". Almost half of Republicans want to decrease legal immigration, too. "But in order to address that issue, if you to address the issue of chain migration".
Almost three-fifths of Republicans (59%) want illegal immigrants in general to be required to leave the country.
Another victory Republican leaders can celebrate is that, for three days, they managed to keep Trump from tweeting or making provocative statements that risked inflaming Democrats and killing the deal. It also contains a host of stringent features that are anathema to Democrats, including reducing legal immigration by 25 percent, adding border patrol agents and denying certain funding to cities that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities. That the dreamers were not threatened with imminent deportation made this hardball seem less warranted.
The program now protects about 700,000 people, mostly Hispanic young adults, from deportation and provides them work permits.
Whether finding a DACA compromise was a necessary price for ending the shutdown was a close call for the public. The shutdown could have potentially left more than 2 million military service members unpaid, while sending 100,000 National Guardsmen home.
Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham told reporters on Thursday that any White House plan, while important, is not his primary concern.
Republicans do have considerable power in the House, where they can pass legislation without any Democratic votes. USA taxpayers will get stuck with the bill for a wall that neither party's leadership believes is necessary or feasible.
As for opinions of Congress itself, they are even more negative now than they usually are.
As Andrew Prokop explained, Trump's approval rating had actually gone up by a few points in the month before the shutdown, and Republicans were hoping it would continue rising in the months leading up to the midterms.
