Historic Immigration Debate To Grip Senate

Who knows what the future holds. Hopefully it includes a WALL
But while Schumer said part of the delay in starting the immigration debate is because the Grassley-Cotton bill is not yet ready for a vote, Republicans expressed frustration that Democrats are not allowing debate to start on an issue that was the cause of a brief government shutdown last month and has been at the center of public debate for years. The Senate will pick the matter up again on Wednesday.
Colorado's USA senators say they are focused on protecting Dreamers as the Senate begins debate on an immigration measure, though lofty asks from the White House and a host of competing bills from various factions of the Senate could make getting to 60 votes hard.
The Senate is off to a slow start in this week's immigration debate with the chamber's Republican and Democratic leaders already at loggerheads on moving forward. The 2013 bill not only addressed the status of the 11 million illegal immigrants and border security, but also included the entire kitchen sink of immigration issues including low- and high skilled workers, refugees, agricultural workers, diversity visas and family-based and merit-based immigration.
If Democrats refuse to accept immigration enforcement reforms and allow the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) to expire, Cotton said there would be "no one to blame but themselves". My view is that any excuse to drop by the National Portrait Gallery is a good one, and I'm hoping I get a chance next time I'm in Washington.
"Our nightmare scenario is that we get into a long-term conversation about immigration", said Angel Padilla, policy director for Indivisible, a grass-roots organization, according to the Washington Post. Since Trump and some Republicans are asking for large-scale changes, any legislation is likely to be long and complicated.
The U.S. Senate begins debate this week on a topic Congress has left unaddressed for decades: immigration reform. Anything that can get 60 votes will pass; everything else will fall by the wayside. The program was created in 2012 by then-President Barack Obama to provide legal protections to immigrants who are in the country illegally after being brought here as children.
Democrats clearly have some support from Republicans for extending DACA protections and adding more money for border security. Sen.
However, Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) thinks that the increase is too much and should not have been done.
On Wednesday, he further elaborated that senators from both sides will have an option to "alternate proposals for consideration and for votes". As a result, it was easy for House Republicans, who did not have any buy-in, to criticize the Senate bill and ultimately do nothing to address the immigration problem.
The Senate will need 60 votes for another bill, and their measure will also have to pass the House in order to reach the president's desk. That will take the key elements of the White House proposal, soften them on several fronts (most notably on family migration) and find some broad 65-68 vote consensus. John McCain (R-AZ) and Chris Coons (D-DE) does not include border wall funding, but also does not have the support of the president who ultimately has to sign the full bill.
"Well this is a very hard issue, we're all aware of that".
After March 5, unless Congress can pass a bill or a federal court intervenes, more than 1,000 DACA recipients per day will begin to lose their work permits and be at risk of deportation.
"It turns out Brooklyn produces some of the best bourbon in the world", Schumer said.
"Yes, it's going to happen right here - stay tuned", Illinois Democratic Senator Dick Durbin said in a recent floor speech.

Moon replied that it was not appropriate for Abe to have raised the issue, which he described as an internal affair. It has shown no interest so far in negotiating over worldwide demands to give up its nuclear and missile programs.

The loss was the second in a row for Atlanta -they lost 100-98 in Orlando on Thursday- after winning their previous two games. That sentiment was echoed by Dahntay Jones, who has been a late addition to the Cavaliers' roster over the past two seasons.
