Did you notice this sentence in your link?

Quote:
While the bill is expected to pass the House, it's unlikely to clear the Senate, where it needs a 60-vote majority.

This reminds me of Trump holding a celebration party at the White House after the House passed Obamacare repeal.

Bills are often changed before they are passed if they are passed at all. The Dems are very much opposed to wasting all that money on a worthless wall. Also opposed are many Republican politicians from states bordering Mexico.

The country is "overrun" with "illegals"? Since when? Unless you're talking about when your ancestors came here cold and starving and began stealing land from the native people.

"Petunia"? Is that some sort of insult? Please cite the source for your "12 million".

What food processing facility? Are you 100% certain they are here illegally? How do you know this? And why have you not alerted the authorities? How are they "disrespecting" this country by working at this food processing plant you mention?

http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/08/politics/white-house-daca-deal-principles/index.html

The White House on Sunday night released an aggressive list of priorities for any deal to protect young undocumented immigrants in limbo -- a list that could make a deal almost impossible to reach if it is strictly followed.

While Democrats have signaled an openness to some deal on DACA and border security, many of the proposals alone would be deal-breakers. Democrats are almost certainly needed to pass a bill to clear the filibuster threshold of 60 votes in the Senate and to make up for Republicans in both chambers who may decline to vote for any path to citizenship or legalization for DACA recipients.

On his first day in office, Trump broke 34 promises

The new president made 36 promises about his first day, but kept only two of them.


Trump promised to issue a mandate to get the “bad” undocumented immigrants out of the country in the first hour.

Once we have a secure border and we stop the drugs and stop the bad ones and get the bad ones out, those are going to be gone immediately. Day one, first hour, I’m going to give a mandate to everybody, including the local police because they know. You know the local police know every one of the bad ones, it’s not like, ‘Oh gee, let’s figure out who it is.’ They know every bad gang member, drug kingpin, they know all of them. As soon as I will be in office for one hour and that order will go out. We’re getting them the hell out of the country. [Interview with David Muir, 9/5/16]

Battle between GOP Sen. Bob Corker and Donald Trump lands low blow to president's agenda
Kimberly Atkins Monday, October 09, 2017

WASHINGTON — Simmering tensions between President Trump and a top Senate Republican boiled over on Twitter yesterday, a move that could harm Trump’s efforts to reset and score legislative wins after failed efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare.

“President Trump has picked a fight with a retiring heavyweight who is free to speak his mind,” GOP strategist Alex Patton said of Sen. Bob Corker, who traded insults over social media with the president yesterday.

Angered by comments Corker made last week suggesting that Trump’s chief of staff and Cabinet members are all that “separate our country from chaos,” Trump tweeted: “Senator Bob Corker ‘begged’ me to endorse him for re-election in Tennessee.”

“I said ‘NO’ and he dropped out (said he could not win without my endorsement),” Trump continued. “He also wanted to be Secretary of State, I said ‘NO THANKS.’ He is also largely responsible for the horrendous Iran Deal! Hence, I would fully expect Corker to be a negative voice and stand in the way of our great agenda. Didn’t have the guts to run!”

Corker responded, also in a tweet: “It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning.”

Corker’s chief of staff, Todd Womack, denied Trump’s claim that the Tennessee Republican — who recently announced he would not seek re-election — sought Trump’s endorsement. Womack said Trump called Corker to convince him to seek another term and “reaffirmed that he would have endorsed him, as he has said many times.”

Trump Hard-Line Immigration Plan Giving GOP Whiplash

by Jonathan Allen

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump's sweeping new immigration-control plan has landed with a soft thud on Capitol Hill, where it threatens to divide Republicans.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., didn't issue a statement on it. A spokesman for House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said only that lawmakers would "review these principles" and consult with the administration. And several Republican lawmakers declined NBC News' requests for comment on the plan, which would increase detention and deportation of unaccompanied minors and undocumented workers, restrict legal immigration to the United States, and fund the construction of a border wall that Trump has long insisted would be paid for by Mexico.

Donald Trump's Popularity Is Declining Among Rural Americans
Newsweek Ryan Bort,Newsweek 15 hours ago

President Donald Trump's popularity is declining in rural American communities, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos daily tracking poll.

A September survey of 15,000 adults living in non-metro areas found that 47 percent disapproved of Trump while the same percentange approved of the president. In the month following his inauguration, 55 percent of the same group approved of the president, while only 37 percent disapproved.

One of the principal reasons for the decline in support, Retuers found, was how Trump has dealt with immigration. Though some are frustrated at the lack of progress in building a wall between the United States and Mexico, others are dismayed by the travel ban and rate of deportation.

“There should be some sort of compromise between a free flow of people over the border and something that’s more controlled,” Drew Carlson, of Warrensburg, Missouri, told Reuters. Carlson added that Trump's “constant fixation on deportation is a little bit unsettling.”

Rural America's approval of Trump's handling of immigration has declined almost 10 percentage points since he first took office, moving from 56 to 47 percent.

The sheer number of outrageous actions the Trump administration is doing is pathetic.

A federal watchdog agency will investigate President Donald Trump’s Election Integrity Commission, it was announced Thursday.

The Government Accountability Office plans to probe the voter fraud panel's funding, internal operations and how it is protecting and sorting the tens of millions of sensitive voter files the commission has collected.

The announcement comes after three Democratic senators — Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Michael Bennet of Colorado and Cory Booker of New Jersey — sent a letter last week urging the agency to investigate the commission, saying it had ignored several requests from Congress aimed at understanding its work. The senators said the panel's creation and operations were "cause for serious concern.

The senators said the panel's creation and operations were "cause for serious concern.”

The senators wrote that they fear the way the commission is conducting its work will "prevent the public from full and transparent understanding of the commission’s conclusions and unnecessarily diminish confidence in our democratic process."

In a letter Wednesday to the lawmakers, the GAO said it had accepted the request. The agency said the investigation would begin in about five months.

Trump formed the commission in May through executive order to examine voter fraud.

It is headed by Vice President Mike Pence, while Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, an immigration hard-liner and strict voter identification law advocate, serves as vice chair.


Since its formation, the commission has been a source of criticism from members of both parties for requesting a massive amount of sensitive voter data.

The commission has also been mired in internal strife, with some members disagreeing on whether voter fraud exists, with two Democratic commission members openly accusing the panel's co-chairs of a lack of transparency.

Critics have called the commission a politically motivated effort to satisfy Trump’s unfounded claims about rampant voter fraud in the 2016 election.

The former first lady didn't touch on how she feels about the Trump administration's policies during the interview. But Bush and her husband, former President George W. Bush, decided to leave the presidential section of their ballots blank instead of voting for Trump during the 2016 election.

Jake Tapper slams Fox News for misrepresenting comments about New York City terror attack

CNN anchor Jake Tapper admonished Fox News for taking his comments about the deadly terrorist attack in New York City out of context.

Jake Tapper accused Fox News of lying after one of its articles took the anchor's words about the New York City terrorist attack out of context.

Tapper had said that "Allahu akbar" can be said both under "beautiful" circumstances and "in moments like this" — but a Fox News headline left out half of the quote.

Tapper compared Fox News to the "nutjobs" at Infowars.

China no doubt says a similar thing about America's debt to them. $1.102 Trillion, in fact. smirk

Hey Timbo, give him a 3 minute smoke break so he can wipe the saliva off his chin and rest his fingers. I can imagine this figure frantically typing without the benefit of fact finding......which is his most obvious weakness. I'm going to bed but I'll say this before I leave, we have 3 Trump supporters who even when they triple team you, appear like a gnat on a pimple......keep up the great work sir.
