Critics said ending the Dreamers Act is cold-hearted. In reality what is cold-hearted is allowing millions of illegals to invade our nation and take away jobs and opportunity from law-abiding, tax-paying Americans. And even worse…taking the lives of an innocent American human being!
Today the Senate rejected legislation based on President Trump’s framework for an immigration deal in a 39-60 vote on Thursday, leaving an uncertain path forward for Congress with nearly a million immigrants sheltered by an Obama-era program facing the prospect of deportation.
The measure spearheaded by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) needed 60 votes to clear a filibuster, but failed to meet the mark.
The series of votes came after Trump slammed the leading bipartisan proposal as “a total catastrophe,” and the White House threatened to veto the bill, which had been considered the most likely to get through a deeply divided Senate.
The outcome concluded a week of Senate consideration of immigration issues and left in limbo the future status of 1.8 million young adults brought to the United States illegally as children. They had been protected from deportation under an Obama-era program that Trump has ordered to end by March 5.
Trump has said any immigration bill to protect Dreamers should also include funds to build a border wall with Mexico, end the visa lottery program and impose curbs on visas for the families of legal immigrants. He had urged support for a measure by Republican Senator Chuck Grassley, but that bill gained only 39 votes in support.
