McCain’s amnesty dies in Senate

The Senate shot down Sen. John McCain’s latest immigration legalization proposal Thursday as lawmakers finally began their long-awaited floor fight over the fate of “Dreamers.”

Mr. McCain and Sen. Chris Coons, Delaware Democrat, had proposed an amnesty for perhaps 3 million illegal immigrants in exchange for a study of border security and a promise of action by 2021.

But the plan had been rejected by President Trump and garnered only 52 votes in support, which was well shy of the 60 senators had set as the needed threshold for action.

Votes were expected in quick succession on a plan to crack down on sanctuary cities, then on Senate Democratic leaders’ immigration plan — an amnesty for 1.8 million illegal immigrants, coupled with border wall funding. Finally, a vote was expected on Mr. Trump’s four-point framework combining an amnesty for 1.8 million with border wall funding, changes to chain migration and an end to the Diversity Visa Lottery.

Amnesty first, then immigration protection will follow, as always.

We can trust them :)

I try not to have glee over someone else health issues.

With this guy, I really have to work overtime at it, and even then I’m not always successful.
