ㅤ”Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin said Thursday that he does not expect Democrats will insist on attaching immigration reform to the fiscal year 2018 spending omnibus, lowering the odds of another government shutdown.
ㅤDurbin said Congress is looking forward to finally passing the spending package, which comes nearly six months into the fiscal year, after weeks of acrimonious disagreement over spending levels, immigration, and a variety of conservative policy riders.”

Trump’s DACA Deadline Is Today, Here’s Why It Doesn’t Matter

TRUMP’S DACA DEADLINE IS TODAY, HERE’S WHY IT DOESN’T MATTERp05114455.jpg

ㅤô¿ô …DACA has been a difficult issue for the President. He has publicly stated that his personal preference is to grant amnesty for the Dreamers. But he also believes in following the letter of the law and satisfying the desires of the most conservative factions of his “base.” Putting the responsibility for DACA on Congress was a brilliant move on the part of the President.
ㅤSupport for amnesty has grown even among conservatives. His proposal to deal for the border wall was perfectly timed.
ㅤThe injunction that allows renewals to continue was probably welcomed by the President considering he personally desires amnesty for the Dreamers.
ㅤ America has been wounded by our failed immigration policy. The first step in healing a wound is to stop the flow of blood. Build the border wall.

Democrats see no leverage left to push DACA fix with budget deal done

DEMOCRATS SEE NO LEVERAGE LEFT TO PUSH DACA FIX WITH BUDGET DEAL DONEp09162820.jpg

ㅤ”The budget agreement set spending levels for the next two years, and it passed as part of a short-term spending bill that included billions in disaster relief with 73 Democrats joining most Republicans in support of the measure.
ㅤThe Democrats who opposed the deal because it didn’t include a fix for the 800,000 recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program now have little hope that legislation will be passed by the March 5 deadline imposed by Trump, if at all.”
