Senate blocks immigration bill backed by Trump administration


CHARLES: IMMIGRATION SHOWDOWN CONTINUES TO HEAT UP ON THE HILL, SENATE HAS BLOCKED 4 IMMIGRATION BILLS TODAY, IT LOOKS LIKE CONGRESS IS HEADING BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD. DO THEY HAVE ENOUGH TIME AND POLITICAL WILL TO GET IT DONE? BUY PEYTON, AND GAYLE TROTTER. KATY, I START WITH YOU, I AM NOT SURE WE THOUGHT ANY OF THOSE BILLS WOULD MAKE IT THROUGH, BUT PRESIDENT TRUMP LAID OUT HIS FOUR PILLARS IT IS CLEAR. I AM BAFFLED WHEN THE REPUBLICANS, THEY KEEP JOINING WITH DEMOCRATS AND BRINGING BILLS THEY KNOW THAT PRESIDENT DOES NOT WANT.>>YOU ARE RIGHT, LOOK AT IT LIKE THIS, THREE BILLS, FOUR TODAY, IF THAT IN AND OF ITSELF WAS AN INDICATION THAT NOTHING WAS GETTING PASSED, I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS. WHEN EVERYONE PLAYS IN THEIR OWN INDIVIDUAL SANDBOX, NO ONE COME TOGETHER TO BUILD A SANDCASTLE, THEY ARE IN A CORNER, SAYING, WOW NONE OF THE PILLS PASSED TODAY? HOW CURIOUS. AND SOURCES CLOSE TO HOUSE LEADERSHIP, TOLD ME THEY DID NOT EXPECT THE SENATE TO GET ANYTHING DONE TODAY. THAT TURNED OUT TO BE TRUE. CHARLES: BREE. S HOUSE HAS BEEN ANGRY. AT THEIR COUNTY PARTS IN — COUNTERPARTS IN SENATE THEY HAPPEN OVER AND OR AGAIN. THE CLOCK IS TICKING ON THIS.>>YEAH, I THINK THAT MOST OF THE BLAME IS ON THE DEMOCRATS, THE PRESIDENT, AS KATY SAID, PRESIDENT HAS MADE IT CLEAR WHAT HE WILL SIGN AND WON’T SIGN. AND DEMOCRATS ARE UNWILLING TO COMPROMISE ON ANY OF THOSE PORTIONS OR NOT WILLING TO TALK ABOUT THEM, SHOWS THEY ARE NOT SERIOUS ABOUT IMMIGRATION REFORM SERIOUS ABOUT IMMIGRATION REFOR REFORM. LUIS GUD LUIS GUTIERREZ SAID IT BEST, WHEN HE SAID, INTEREST OF HISPANIC DEMOCRATS, THE ANSWERRA ALWAYS MANANA. OUR INTERESTS ARE PUSHED OFF THE BACK BURNER UNTIL TOMORROW, I THINK THEY ARE USING THESE DREAMERS IN THIS CASE, TO EXPLOIT A POINT, THIS IS OBVIOUS THEY ARE USING THEM AS PAWNS IN THE LARGER GAME OF IDENTITY POLITICS.>>I AGREE, THIS IS A DANGEROUS GAME, I WAS SHOCKED AT OFFER THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP PUT OUT FOR THEM, THERE IS NO WAY IN THE WORLD THEY EXPECTED IT TO BE THAT GENEROUS, THEY SHOULD BE REPAIRED TO MAKE COMPROMISE.>>RIGHT, PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS MOVED TO THE REASONABLE MIDDLE ON THIS IMMIGRATION ISSUE. AND ANYONE W.H.O. WATCH — WHO WATCHED HIS STATEMENT DURING PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN WOULD BE SURPRISED WE ARE WHERE WE ARE. YET WE HAVE DEMOCRATS IN SENATE WHO WILL NOT TAKE YES FOR AN ANSWER, THEY WANT TO CONTINUE TO HAVE THIS BE A PARTISAN ISSUE GOING FORWARD, INSTEAD OF A BIPARTISAN APPROACH, WHERE WE CAN MOVE FORWARD WITH AN IMMIGRATION POLICY SUPPORTIVE OF NATIONAL SECURITY, CONCERNED ABOUT THE ECONOMY, AND MAKE SURE OUR BORDER IS SECURE. CHARLES: KATY, THEY PUT TOGETHER A — I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPENED IF WE GET TO AND PAST THAT MARCH 5 DEADLINE, HOW DID YOU SEE A DACA SOLUTION COMES ABOUT?>>THERE HAS TO BE COMPROMISE, EVEN THOUGH REPUBLICANS HAVE MAJORITIES, THEY ARE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO TOO THIS ON THEIR RONNIE, THEY CANNOT WRANGLE ENOUGH REPUBLICANS ON THEIR OWN SIDE, PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS ALREADY OFFERED COMPROMISE, THE 1.8 MILLION PEOPLE THAT IS MORE THAN ORIGINALLY INTENDED. FOUR OF 3EU8 FOUR OF PEU8 FOUR OF PIL8 FOUR OF PILLARS IT HAS TO BE A GIVE AND TAKE BUT IF THE DEMOCRATS JUST SIT BACK AND CROSS THEIR ARMS, SAYING WE’LL NOT AGREE EVER, NOTHING WILL GET DONE. CHARLES: WE’RE SEEING SOME CRACKINGS IN LEADERSHIP PART. NANCY PELOSI LOSING HER GRIP, PERHAPS BECAUSE OF ISSUES LIKE THIS, RIGHT?>>YEAH, I THINK THAT DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS FAMILY UNDERGOING — FUNDAMENTALLY UNDER GOING A IDENTITY CRISIS, NANCY PELOSI TOOK UP 8 HOURS TO TRY TO STOP A SPINNING BILL, SHE SAID IT DID NOT PROVIDE PROTECTION FOR DREAMERS, AFTER THE BILL PASSED DESPITE THAT LONG SPEECH, SHE SAID “NEW YORK TIMES” SHE INTENDED FOR BILL TO PASS, SHE WAS NEVER SERIOUS ABOUT THE DREAMERS THAT IS CONFUSING FOR HISPANIC-AMERICANS AND FOR DREAMERS WHO ARE LOOKING AT THIS SAY, I THOUGHT WE WERE A PRIORITY TO YOU, WHY YOU ARE FLIPPING BACK AND FORTH? IT INDICATES HER OWN POSITION WENT THE PARTY — WITHIN THE PARTY IS TENUOUS, AND I THINK THAT DEMOCRATS ARE TRYING TO DECIDE WHO DO WE REPRESENT? ARE WE EMPHASIZING THE DREAMERS, PLAY IDENTITY POLITICS OR ARE WE THE PARTY THAT GETS THINGS DONE AND KEEPS GOVERNMENT RUNNING AND HERE IF HERE TF HERE TO REPUBLICAN LEGAL AMERICANS.>>QUICK, GAIL, IF NOTHING IS DONE, WHO DOES THIS HURT THE MOST? WILL BE A LOT OF FINGER-POINTING?>>RIGHT, IT HURTS AMERICANS THE MOST, YOU HAVE THE OPPOSING VIEWS OF OPEN BORDERS, OR RESTRICTIVE IMMIGRATION, WE NEED TO COME TO A COMPROMISE, AND MAKE SURE THAT WE PUT AMERICANS

    Just start randomly deporting them all. After the WALL is built, and ALL illegals deported, then revisit "immigration reform".

  • The wolf

    POTUS veto any bill out of Senate that is not in line also you Republicans better listen most Americans don't want DACA Dreamers ect

  • Armonia Lise

    As long as the e-verify isn't in the final product.
    On the surface, sounds good. Then, you realize it borders on freaky, since citizens would be required to participate in order to do anything (buy, sell, purchase, work, move…). Government overreach in abundance, and closer to the end. It's beastly.

  • Pamela L

    Then let these Senators take full responsibility for all these drug lords, murders and rapes, gangs violence that these illegal immigrants are doing this country and make them pay for their crimes if they want to protect them. Not only that but let them financially support these illegals out of their pockets , not our tax money and no federal assistance for any of them.
    Us tax payers are sick of our property taxes going up constantly due to over crowed schools due to these illegal and having to pay for translators that get pay $60,000.00 a yr because they refuse to speak englsh.

    Politicians suck! Congress is full of buffoons. We need Trumplicans in congress in 2018 and 2020 to get Trump's agenda passed. The president's number one job is to protect our nation and its citizens but congress screws us every chance they get. They care about elections more than what is best for our country. They answer to their rich donors like Soros. They don't answer to Americans and they don't care. Force the politicians to live in the communities where they put all the illegals and refugees and immigrants from shit hole countries and Muslim countries and I guarantee they will change their view on immigration real quick. The horrific immigration policies of our gov't have decimated many communities here in the USA. Why the left coddles the Islamic religion I will never understand. The Muslim immigrants I know hate women and think of us as less than cattle. Why the hell as an American woman do I have to put up with this kind of nonsense from people who are foreign to this nation? Islam is not a good thing for women or children and I wish the so called feminists would wake up and get smart about immigration real quick. Islam is not good for equality and neither is having men from 3rd world countries where wife beating is allowed coming here. I hope Trump can fix this mess and I hope we get a congress in 2018 and 2020 who will work on his agenda.

    Libs and Dems are just plain stupid. They have to know that Trump is giving them a chance to protect the "Dreamers" and, since they are against everything Trump does, He will just continue deporting all of them. When they start screaming about it, Trump will say, "Hey, you had your chance to protect them but, now, I have to enforce the law of the land!"

  • Scott Duffy

    This is the resist movement this is the Never trumper's this is the anti Republic this is the Communists build the wall Deport them all

  • Edward Saucedo

    dems dont want trump to do amnesty, they need them for the votes and pandering. dems wanted 700k, Trump offered 1.8 million. Democrats are flakes pandering for power.

  • Dora Tiscareno

    BUILD that WALL…🇺🇸
    🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🔨🏃💨🏃🏃💨

  • blizte3

    no daca and no amnesty do not give illegals power or votes hell no, they already vote illegally for democrats in all elections all the time.

  • 1tired citizen

    It's obvious to anyone with even half of a brain that the democrats are not going to negotiate on anything and the only thing they care about is the democrat party and how to win some seats in the midterm elections.

  • arsenic milkshakes

    Trump needs to grow a set of balls deploy the ice agents and just start deporting these people he needs a bit of that Andrew Jackson spirit I'm sick and tired of him rolling over giving amnesty like a little bitch pissing off his base voters we didn't elect Trump for this we want people deported and fucking wall built Trump needs to start defying these liberal sissy judges that strike down his rulings they never did it to Obama so Trump should not be taken any of this shit, I really hope Lindsey Graham and Jeff Flake died in a car accident same with all the other open-borders rhino faggets you control Congress the Senate White House the stuff is not getting past it's unbelievable and Trump is on his Twitter like somebody without any power at all it's a total joke

  • Conservative Hamster

    maybe the FL high school shooter should have shot up some democratic politicians. he would have done this country some good that way.

  • dee jay

    Why are there partial walls and fences on our border now? And who put them up? ….since those walls And fences already exist and are needing repair, it's our job to repair them and build them to the completion. PERIOD

  • dee jay

    Trump can repair the fences that exist now since they belong to usa and replace those fences with a wall without anyone's permission let alone a damn democrat and he can find the money elsewhere and build the wall to its entirety with out any support from them whatsoever. Then throw out chain migration and visa lottery and bam the only thing left is deportation.
    Done. Fineeto. Finished.

  • Rodrick Sheppard

    So basically we are paying Democrats for FREE? Meaning we are paying them to RESIST, every action of the president? Now can we demand our money back for a poor job performance?

  • LaughTooHard

    Trump will stand strong on this issue. No wall, no DACA, and if Congress sends a bill minus what he wants, he won't sign it. The Radical Liberals only want new voters and they could give a rip about these people. Build the wall! VOTE Republican in November.

  • Jon Shearer

    Will somebody please outlaw George Soros. He is the evil behind all of this crap. Take his money and banish him from everywhere. Stalin, incarnate.

  • M thom

    Do a Go Fund Me to start the wall in the most problematic area! Don’t settle for anything less than your four demands! Chain migration and lottery must go! We should never let the parents of these “poor dreamers” be made citizens for a reward.
    Everyone needs to vote carefully this fall! Remember some of the Republicans might not have Americans first!(Just look at McCain and Flake!)

  • J Whome

    Hispanic Americans are not dreamers. Mexican Americans are not dreamers. Mexicans unlawfully in America are dreamers. Trump wants to give them a pass, but the DEMS are blocking it. Go figure

  • cirocko1

    i got news for the senators, we voted for a republican house, senate and president. WE the people who run this country will get rid of anyone who refuses to fix immigration. we want everything Trump wants

  • willy maldonado

    Democrats are using the dreamers as guinea pigs for their experiment, they don't care Trump has done more for dreamers to stay than the democrats!!🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 #MakeAmericaGreatAgain #TrumpFor2020 #TheLiderOfTheWorld

  • The Truth

    Jeff Sessions is Worthless, and a Spineless AG. All he wants to do is be a Drug Zar!  He will recuse himself whenever he believes he might be criticized.  He desperately needs to be replaced. Little Jeff Sessions should go back to Alabama.

  • tee

    Russia indictments….
    Yeah bayvee….
    Tick tock tick tock….
    Mueller is coming……
    …oh but wait, I thought this was a witch hunt?Funny…I'm loving it…..
    Hmmmm, I wonder if 45 will place the sanctions on his boss now….

  • Jimmy Brice

    of course the globalists aren't serious about reforming our immigration system. they want free borders, so anyone can come across, and totally mess up our country. mitch mcconnell, part of the swamp, wont go nuclear, and solve our health care and immigration problems. sessions, owned by the swamp, wont prosecute anyone or do much of anything.

    damn, trump has a huge battle over everything. i think more trumplicans, not just republicans, will be elected in 2018. more and more people are realizing that trump and the trumplicans are their real friends.

  • edward violante

    Trump is holding out for his 25 billion dollar wall.He is using human beings to play his game.He will not allow for any other option.

  • G. Burner

    Trump is not a Republican.
    He could care less about policy other than tax cuts and estate tax repeal.
    Seriously, is funny to watch the R's fall in line with such an idiot at the front who could care less about them.

  • Heosphoros

    Republicans are in power from the presidency, majority in senate and congress and yet it's still democrat's fault for everything. Wow! Unbelievable!

  • user used

    Democrats are sniveling toddlers and that is insulting toddlers. They want everything their way and have no interest in helping anyone but themselves. Get it through your heads, we want illegal immigration stopped and we want our wall.

  • dan o

    They don't care about much of anything. They are visionless, stupid and broke on almost every level. Its a awesome immigration plan. And they know it. But don't care about, we the people.

  • John Farley

    The DACA people should go out to Schumers home and drag the bastard out into the street, I am convinced the democrat leader care little for anyone.

  • Michael Healy

    If a Bill doesn't contain open borders,open immigration and drugs flowing freely into the Country the left will not vote for it.

  • JB

    The gop needs 61 votes in the Senate so we can get that wall built. Walls have worked in many other countries, just ask mexico how the wall on their southern border works for them & it isn't even a complete & high wall like President Trump wants built on our border with Mexico. The money we save from benefits to illegals would be about 10 times the cost of the wall in the 1st year a after that the maintenance per year would be really small compared to benefits illegals get. Its nothing but a plus just in lives saved after the majority of them are gone

  • Hamberder King

    All you stupid idiots here should know that it was the Orange turd who signed a bill that said that mentally ill people can buy guns. the shooter in Florida is mentally ill. You could see that because he wore a maga cap

  • GUERDIE THOMAS

    But I have heard that those daka dreamers lawyer's said they are not going to be vote for president Donald Trump in the first place because they are here to be vote for those Democrats but not for president Donald Trump

  • mary howard

    This is America. We do not intentionally hurt people, or at least that's what we want to believe. Sending these daca individuals to a country to don't know anything about is "WRONG". They are here, lets make them legal. And then: make the immigration changes that so badly need to be made. And America does not need a wall…. We are a free nation and will stay a free nation. If you don't want illegals in America (put everybody in prison who hires them) … like trump

    They are all wrong and it is about time that all politicians LISTEN TO AMERICAN CITIZENS HERE ARE THE FACTS
    Americans are not divided on immigration
    2/16/18 – The Schumer Democrats in Congress are trying to convince Americans that the country is deeply divided on immigration reform. Outside the Beltway, the numbers tell an entirely different story.
    According to a recent CBS poll, nearly three-quarters of voters favor President Trump’s Immigration Reform and Border Security Framework. The core principles of that framework include 1) securing the border; 2) providing legal status for DACA-eligible immigrants; 3) protecting the nuclear families of immigrants; and 4) eliminating the Visa Lottery and replacing it with a system that prioritizes merit and public safety.
    The CBS poll is no outlier. Polls from Harvard Harris (January 2018), Pulse Opinion Research (August 2017), and America First Policies (August 2017) all point to the same conclusion: Americans are more than ready for an immigration system that puts the national interest first once and for all.
    Will our leaders in Congress listen?
    • CBS: More than 7 in 10 voters (72%) favored the President’s Immigration Reform and Border Security Framework, which he detailed in his State of the Union address. (January 2018)
    • Harvard Harris: 65% of voters favor (as opposed to only 35% who oppose) a congressional deal that gives undocumented immigrants brought here by their parents work permits and a path to citizenship in exchange for increasing merit preference over preference for relatives, eliminating the visa lottery, and funding barrier security on the United States-Mexico border. This includes 68% of Hispanic voters, 64% of African-American voters, 64% of Democratic voters, 67% of Independent voters, 63% of liberal voters, and 68% of Clinton voters. (January 2018)
    o 60% of voters believe that children who were brought into this country illegally by their parents, many of whom are now in their 20s and 30s, should not be given preference for their parents or relatives to move to this country.
    o 79% of voters think priority for those coming to the United States should be based on ability to contribute to America, as measured by education and skills—and not based on having relatives in the country. This includes 85% of African-American voters and 72% of Democrats and Clinton voters.
    o 68% of voters oppose the visa lottery, which randomly picks 50,000 applicants from countries with low numbers of immigrants in the previous five years to enter the United States each year. This includes 62% of Democratic voters, 61% of Hispanic voters, and 57% of African-American voters.
    • Pulse Opinion Research: 55% of voters support allowing immigrants to bring in only their spouse and minor children and not their extended family. Nearly 6 in 10 voters support eliminating the visa lottery. (August, 2017)
    • America First Policies: 76% of voters support increasing the number of ICE officers to protect public safety and national security. 73% of voters support requiring incoming immigrants to be financially self-sufficient. 64% of voters support creating a point system of entry based on factors such as English-speaking ability, education level, and job skills. (August, 2017)

    Every issue on Illegals IS a DEMOCRATS TOOL they don't want them here – only use them then toos them out once they get a Democrat in the president seat, and then, they will continue with the plan Obama start, for the Globalist = Marshall law, detentions without chargers, and troops gunning down "useless breeders" Wake UP

    DACA was an unlawful DECREE of Hussein Obama who petulantly whined that Congress wasn't "cooperating" with him. So he declared he would use his PEN & PHONE to bypass the Constitution and impose DACA in place of law. When our duly elected President Trump rescinds unconstitutional DACA, in step Obama's 9th Circuit Court stooges to prevent the U.S. President from restoring law. These judges were not elected – they must be impeached and removed from the Bench. Americans HAVE DREAMS TOO, one being that our choice as president be given the authority, respect and honor he deserves.

  • Sao Salazar

    shout out to the average MURICAN who when he hears IMMIGRATION and DACA his pea brain sees a Mexican with a sombrero taking a siesta… DACA is a refugee status like TPS but for children who went to school here of all nationalities

  • John Farley

    I would love to see someone get thumbs down photo's of the Senators and put them in a name and shame show. I saw such a thing on an Australian TV show, It was popular too.

  • incipidsigninsetup

    Republicans own everything and still can't get anything done! Russia probe, Orange dotard cheating on his wife with playmates and porn stars, 17 children dead and the dotard makes it about him, North Korea on the brink, Peurto Rico still wthout power, another indictment of a person in the dotard inner circle, dreamers left in limbo and no wall built. This orange moron is an absurd disaster for the country and especially for Republicans who cringe in fear of the Browning of the American electoral base and the loss of the younger generation. Stick close to FOX news you losers, the Blue Wave is coming!!

    TheDems know exactly what they are doing. Replacing White voters with Mexican voters. What does the GOP know, NOTHING, NOTHING. We are losing our civilization, and the GOP cares only about their donor class of the one percent.
