Immigration negotiations

Recommended Posts

I find it telling that democrats are not pushing for real immigration reform.  They aren't even trying to help the dreamers.  Let alone address the issues that create dreamers and our immigration issues.  Which are easily addressed if they want to.  Solutions are not difficult.

For months, the public dispute over border funding has largely focused on border barriers. But over the weekend, Republicans and Democrats hit an impasse over how many detention beds would be provided for people detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials.

Democrats have long been seeking to limit the number of beds as a way to force the Trump administration to prioritize the detention of immigrants with criminal records above those who overstayed their visas, for example.

In the negotiations, Democrats have been working to secure some constraints on ICE as a concession from Republicans, in exchange for meeting GOP demands to build more physical barriers along the border. Republicans have balked at the limits on ICE beds, saying they don’t want to restrain their capacity to detain criminals.

The immigration issue has become a political tool. Both parties want to get the upper hand with the American public. IMO the Republicans are currently leading in political points because the majority of Americans are against illegal immigration. The Democrats sit back and criticize the Republican ideas because they don’t have any ideas of their own other than they are for illegal immigration (as shown by their actions) and don’t want to look like fools promoting it.

I like both. I’m not big on Japanese or Indian food.

So, you don't really like fish.

There's many other ways other than fried or raw.

Every culture has delicious food.  If you don't like it you either haven't eaten enough of it for the "weirdness" to wear off or you haven't had it prepared well.
