Trump: Democrats Have Abandoned Dreamers

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Friday accused Democrats of abandoning young immigrants after the Senate rejected three separate immigration bills a day earlier. The president’s tweet came a day after senators rejected three proposals that would have resolved the fate of the “Dreamers” — young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children.

Trump, however, refused to back any proposal other than his own, which was sponsored in the Senate by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa). That measure would have created a pathway to citizenship for the Dreamers but also sought to curb legal immigration. It received only 39 votes in the Senate.

      • FAEN

        This is what worries me. I’ve said this before but when Grassley’s handling of this situation becomes the norm-and it rapidly is-can we come back from it? Or are we just going to permanently live in a ‘Black Mirror’ episode.

      • Uncle Mark

        Especially since it was the mentally ill, who voted for Trump in the first place. Isn’t he afraid of upsetting his base?
        Oh…I get it. They don’t see themselves as mentally ill. It’s like the racists, who don’t see themselves as racist

      • SkokieGuy / May attempt snark

        Clay, I was being sarcastic, because Trump was the one who created this mess by undoing Obama’s EO.

        So for him to blame the Democrats for not fixing it is laughably stupid, but then again, so is most of what comes out of Trump.

        • clay

          Yes, I also thought my sarcasm was obvious.
          Trump has killed satire.

    • The_Wretched

      If there are 2 there are 20. It’s clear Trump was a “playboy” and went out of his way to validate himself by picking up pretty women endlessly. It’s also clear that Melania knew and Keith Schiller played door keeper. I have to doubt that all this has stopped merely due to Trump being president and the SS should spill the beans about Trump’s weekly ‘golfing’ weekends.


        …and he needs a LOT of validation….

      • clay

        Didn’t we already know that there were at least 14?

        • The_Wretched

          I was being coy. 200 or 2000 are just as likely.

          It’s 14 court cases + at least 2 known pay offs + however many the National Enquirere manged to buy off and quash + however many Keith Schiller or the mob scared into silence + the escort service he owned and operated + the teen beauty pagent he was on the board of + I’m sure I’ve forgetten a few of the classes of women and girls that he abused, or didn’t or paid off or didn’t.

        I hadn’t noticed Sutro Tower in this video before. Of course I was a freshman in high school in GA at the time.

  • When my great grandad got here in 1881, he was allowed to vote, even though he wasn’t a citizen. He just had to declare that he intended to become a citizen.

    Now, think about what would happen if we seriously proposed bringing back non-citizen voting. The politicians of both parties would fall all over themselves to open the borders. Trump would lead Congress in parachuting down on that border wall so hard, they’d knock it over and make like they’d really intended it to be a pedestrian bridge over the Rio Grande.

    You see, thats the thing. If you can’t vote, politicians don’t care about you. Chuck Schumer compromises with Trump to remove DACA protections from the Tax Bill and Nancy Pelosi strips an amendment from Ro Khana that would have made the Dream Act part of the next budget. Everyone shits on immigrants, because they lose no votes that way.

    Same thing with felons. You can never be too tough on crime. The scared white suburbanites will vote for you, and whose votes are you going to lose? The felons can’t vote against you. So get fucking medieval, and tell the cops its okay to summarily execute people for a busted tail light in neighborhoods with a high proportion of ex convicts. Since we tend to incarcerate poor Black men more than anyone else in this country, the cops already know they can get away with murdering them. No mayor or governor’s gonna fire them for that. That’s because no felon can fire the mayor, since they can’t vote for his opponent.

    Thats also why pollsters don’t care about you unless you’re an undeclared independent. Theres no ground to be won among those who don’t vote at all or only vote one way.

    • The_Wretched

      “we seriously proposed bringing back non-citizen voting”

      It’s a non-starter. The fix is to have only 1 class of citizen and to regularize people’s legal status to either permanent non-citizen (green card) or citizen.

  • David Walker

    Sort of OT, sort of not. We all have been doing a lot of hand-wringing and cussing and shouting and muttering about how life has degenerated in the US and how we seem not to care that what little healthcare we have is being whittled away and how it’s now normal for kids to be murdered in school. What can we do? We have no leader. And if we wait for George or Jane to do it, would they pass the purity tests they’d face?

    We’re starting to plan our December concert. We’re not a church choir, so we’re not looking into any new baby Jesus music. But reviewing my files, I came across a choral called “The Power of One” by Greg Gilpin, 1995. It’s written for high school, a ’90s power ballad, but the words hit me. Hokey, pie in the sky, and worth remembering. I do not have Greg’s or the publisher’s OK to reprint some lyric:
    Like a spark that starts a fire, ev’ry stone makes a mountain higher, and a raindrop helps a river to flow.
    You and I are just the same. It takes just one to fan the flame of desire to make a change.
    Each voice that is singing is the power of one. Each hand that is reaching is the power of one. Each heart that is beating is the power of one. Each soul that is seeking is the power of one.
    The power of one starts simply with me. I can make a diff’rence in the world that I see. Yes, I can. Yes, I am the power of one.
    (c) 1995 Greg Gilpin
    Hokey, high school, pie in the sky, worth remembering. Worth trying?

          Likley not a russian but rather a Yellow Dog on message for the party. My core complaint about the FEDDEM party is that they were coopted by ‘big tent’ outreach and absorption of the Moderate Republicans who were purged from that party over the last 3 decades. Those republicans always did hate social program spending and business regs even thought they were fairly liberal on abortion and gay rights.

    This tweet and the halo of republican lies that surround it are exactly why Schumer should not have caved on the continuing budget resolution 3 weeks ago. I said at the time that the big win for the republicans was to show Dems as not supporting the Dreamers & immigrants. That’s to drive down PoC turn out at the next elections. The (R) had a decent % of the Hispanic population during W’s time and even floated JEB! as a Spanish speaker. All that is gone now and the R just want the D on the same footing with that population segment.
