Democrats blocked a vote Tuesday on cracking down on sanctuary cities as the first day of the immigration debate began with a whimper.
Sen. Charles E. Schumer said debating sanctuary cities would be getting off on the wrong foot, insisting this weeks floor fight should only be about illegal immigrant Dreamers and border security.
The early jockeying underscored the problems the Senate is about to face.
Democrats had begged for a fair process to debate immigration, but are now worried about just how wide-ranging that debate will be, and are trying to shape the amendments that will be offered.

Of course they did.
“Democrats had begged for a fair process...”
Fair = obstruction of the majority.
Irony. Politicians don’t get it
No deal then....deport all illegals and let DACA expire.
How THE HECK can there be a fair resolution if invaders can hide in sanctuary cities? I do wish the ‘pubs in the US Senate who actually believe their campaign rhetoric would get the fake Republicans (cheap labor sellouts?) in line.
Chuckie believes “fair” is getting everything he and the Rats want.
With any luck, just like 2013, it will be DOA in the House. I would like to think President Trump would also veto it, but after the budget bill, he seems content to sign anything Congress sends him.....
Obstruct, resist, lay on the tracks - that really isn’t working very well with this administration, is it? The Russia thing didn’t work, the media can only lie so long, and that Blue Tidal Wave is starting to look like a ripple on the pond. Could be the Dems are going to have to do the unthinkable: relearn how to do real politics.
Mitch and Ryan cave in 3, 2, 1,,!
Support Free Republic, Folks!
Seems insane to have to “vote” on following the law....Repubs putting on another worthless show.
I’d like to “get off on the right foot,” by placing mine in close proximity to Schumer’s a$$ at a high velocity!
Democrats block vote AGAINST AMERICA - every time.
They and the RINO’s are the Enemy Within. May the Patriots meet them and beat them with force and determination.
Why dont we have tax sanctuary cities, where cities get to declare tax evasion and refuse to help the IRS? Lets see if the demcraps block that one.
Turtle and Ryan are shocked.
The only ones on the Planet who were.
If the Republicans were in the majority, they could get something done.
What? They *are* in the majority?
Mitch is letting Schumer run things again.
Political terms for Dummies:
Bipartisan = Agreeing with Democrats.
Reaching across the Aisle = Agreeing with Democrats.
The Loyal Opposition = Democrats who are out of power.
One Party Rule = Phrase only used when Republicans are in power.
