Original thread article:
“This is going to be done or not done this week,” Sen. John Cornyn, the second-ranking Republicans in the Senate, said Monday. “People had better get to work because the clock is ticking.”
A group of senators brought forward a plan by President Donald Trump that provides an estimated 1.8 illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children a pathway to citizenship. In exchange from the dramatic departure on policy, President Trump seeks $25 billion in border security and other changes to the U.S. immigration system.
In order for the bill to move forward in the Senate, at least nine Democrat senators would have to join with all 51 Republicans to create a 60-vote majority. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) cast the lone vote against bringing a House bill to the Senate floor to being the debate on immigration reform. Senators voted 97-1 in favor of moving the bill forward for discussion.
“Such a policy is inconsistent with the promises that he and Republicans have made to the voters, and is in fact further to the left of President Obama’s position,”
Despite Cruz’s vote on principle, the House bill which will be used as a vehicle for Senate debate will move forward. Debate is expected to begin on Tuesday. The Senate’s supposedly open and lengthy debate on immigration and amnesty will likely come to a quick end on Thursday, leaving both Democratic and GOP groups scrambling to find 60 votes before a Senate recess starts on Friday.
Pro-Amnesty Trumpshill Talking Points Used So Far
"Nothing has happened, yet. Don't worry about it. Just trust in Trump."
"Just wait till they get amnesty and it's too late to do anything, goyim."
"It's not amnesty, goyim."
It is amnesty. A delayed form of amnesty is still amnesty.
Democrats will never take this deal, just relax this is 44,000,000 dimensional chess.
Democrats will happily take this deal because they have every intention on renegging on their promises, ("McCarty recommended accepting the deal for temporary advantage, and then immediately violating the deal when they recover the White House. Democrats could chop enforcement funding and raise the annual inflow when they get back in power, McCarty said." archive.is
"They have to be on their best behavior or they'll be deported before they're allowed to be citizens."
Lies. We have had laws for a long time saying anyone here illegally needs to be deported, but those laws have been ignored as long as they've existed. Pro-Amnesty Trump nut huggers want you to think more laws saying the same thing will magically cause the government to stop their anti-White practices and finally deport illegals. Don't be stupid.
"It's the better than any other deal we're going to get. We better take it!"
Lies. Our current situation without a deal has us in a better position. Right now any illegals in the country MUST be deported, rather than make deals to rob us of this ability, we should be forcing our representatives to follow the laws and deport illegals.
No deals, just deportations. Amnesty is never an answer,
