It was a silly shutdown, a fact made crystal clear by the Democrats' quick fold on its first actual business day.
Guy Short is a former congressional chief of staff, six-time Republican National Convention delegate and Republican strategist. Just 14% of Republicans gave Donald Trump a lot of blame.
Most serious immigration restrictionists favor enhanced border security and want some more physical barriers, but ultimately their support for the Trump wall is a political priority, not a policy one. "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".
Years later, Arreola, who is studying to be an OB-GYN at Loyola's Stritch School of Medicine, became one of the nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants who were allowed to remain in the United States under an Obama-era policy known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which allowed them a temporary reprieve from deportation.
After a weekend "government shutdown" provoked by Schumer, D-N.Y., and fellow Democrat hardliners, the Senate voted Monday to approve a spending bill that should get all federal agencies back up and running.
If this measure of public opinion is any indication of what lawmakers should do, these numbers imply that the DACA program should continue. Republicans already have been running robo-calls in swing states like OH accusing Democrats of holding up children's health care in order to help undocumented immigrants.
Under a Republican immigration plan that's been unveiled in the House, DACA recipients would have no path to citizenship - instead, they would be eligible for a renewable three year legal status to stay in the United States.
Rare 'super blue blood moon' coming to Western US skies next week
Blue moons occur about once every 2.7 years, according to Space .com, so they aren't almost as rare as one might think. Whether you're romantic or not, the "Super Blue Bloody Moon" is a phenomenon worth watching with your loved ones.
With action on immigration of some sort more likely than not in the Senate by February 8, stakeholders interested in immigration reform and the EB-5 program should remain focused on advocating for their concerns over the coming days and weeks. "After we do DACA, we'll take a look at the even bigger immigration problem". Almost half of Republicans want to decrease legal immigration, too.
"What he didn't talk about and what I want to hear from him on is the rest of the requirement, on border security, on diversity lottery and on chain migration", Cornyn told reporters.
Almost three-fifths of Republicans (59%) want illegal immigrants in general to be required to leave the country.
"There is a deal to be made", said House Republican Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) of immigration. However, that legislation also provided a pathway to legal status for 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. But for immigrant youths, the threat of deportation is real and imminent.
The program now protects about 700,000 people, mostly Hispanic young adults, from deportation and provides them work permits.
Some of those senators met with Schumer Sunday morning and urged a compromise to end the shutdown.
While Schumer has a promise for a debate on the Senate floor if no deal is reached, there is no guarantee that the House would even vote for an immigration bill approved by the Senate. Except that it was actually the Republican Party who kept the troops from being paid in the first place.
As for opinions of Congress itself, they are even more negative now than they usually are. Democratic aides said that despite the pressure from some of his party's most energized forces, Schumer knew his caucus would not hold together at that point.
