gops are already saying there wont be a daca vote.

As I pointed put in another thread (and was told I did not grasp the fine points of politics) they wont bring up a clean daca bill up and down vote. As a matter of fact senator kennedy (R LA) said he would vote against DACA. What he wants is radical reforms to immigration that wont be acceptable to democrats. I stand by my statement that we got played.

mark my words. The immigration deal will fail.

It won't work because Mc Connell already said he will put on the agenda after Feb 8th, DACA along with border security and related items. In short, its not a clean DACA bill, they will attach a load of bullcrap that we wont be able to go for.

McConnell will be able to say he kept his promise and we will be screwed.

schumer saying they will vote to reopen the government and fold once again..

I am not happy about this. What good is Mcconnell word that he will bring DACA back to the floor.

Are the democrats about to fold ?

They are meeting right now. I am hoping they are not going to fold and vote for a temporary CR with no DACA. This would generate a huge backslash from the base.

if all the trump staffers are as unhinged as sam nunberg

no wonder nobody is there to get Trump under control. They are all batshit crazy. Joy could not wait to get him off air.
