Quote:"Every time we have a proposal it is only yanked back by staff members. As long as Stephen Miller is in charge of negotiating immigration, we're going nowhere," Graham told reporters as he headed into a closed-door negotiation with a bipartisan group of senators.

He added that "the White House staff, I think, is making it very difficult."

Stephen Miller is the ultra right.

LDH - You don't need to keep proving to us you're a racist piece of human garbage, we got that already.


Deserves a repost.

Republicans - Thinking that offering a Sophie's choice between who gets screwed over more somehow makes them the good guys. Just imagine, if you can, how far up your own ass your head needs to be lodged for this upside down bullshit to seem reasonable.

RE: Jan. 2018 US Federal Government Shutdown
What's maddening about this is 70% of Americans support DACA. This should be a relatively easy fix... you know, if the people in congress represented the people who voted for them. It's similar to "common sense" gun laws and the NRA. An even larger majority wants that, but less than 50% in congress want it.

The GOP Shutdown is on the GOP. It's not even a hard compromise. It's one that would probably make them more popular, except in their right wing extremist primaries.

He changed the voicemail. The changed the bloody voicemail to deflect blame off himself.

"Unfortunately, we cannot answer your call today because Congressional Democrats are holding government funding - including funding for our troops and other national security priorities - hostage to an unrelated immigration debate"

Urgh.

So, when The White House is called on the phone, a voice message states that because of the democrats alone, the government has been shut down.

Seriously.
Try it. 202-456-1414 or 202-456-1111... etc.

Every time I hear the DACA people referred to as "illegal immigrants" I ask myself, "At what point do the babies/toddlers tell mom and dad 'OK, give me some money, I'm going home as I'm going to stop breaking the law, .... and be sure there's enough for a few diaper changes and formula". Facepalm

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein It is objectively immoral to kill innocent babies. Please stick to the guilty babies.

Just remember folks.

Republicans hold that corporations, churches, and fetuses are 'people' who deserve protection.

But children, women, veterans, college students, and literally everyone one else who isn't a Super PAC or donor? FUCK EM'!

One of these days LDH is going to face the harsh truth that even if he were on fire, not a single elected Republican would even piss on him to douse the flames. That day is not today, but I hope I'm there to see it when it happens.

Technically, they're not immigrants at all (they were "Born in the USA"), so how can they be illegal immigrants?

Yabut if we don't deport them, the'll mostly vote for Democrats. So, they're the worst kind of people.

Given the amount of ratfucking the GOP is involved in, this has to be a significant factor in their decisions. Again, most of the country wants a DACA program, but the GOP legislature does not.
