Trump taunts “cryin” Senate Democrats over “humiliating Defeat”

The three day “Trump shutdown” or  “SchumerShutdown,” or whatever you want to call, it is over. But just because its business as usual in Washington,  that isn’t stopping both Republicans and Democrats from point the finger at who is to blame for the temporary federal work stoppage.

By all accounts, it appears as if the GOP won the political tug-o-war, for now, but what’s next? While Democrats want to extend legal status for the parents of DACA kids, Republicans want to  focus on those 800,000 children that were brought to this country illegally at no fault of their own, and funding “the Wall” President Trump promised to build along the U.S.-Mexico border.

As you can imagine, political posturing on immigration reform by both sides is in full swing. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D) is asking his supporters to urge Republican Senators to pass a bipartisan budget that addresses “Dreamers,” as well as other vital issues, including disaster relief and veteran affairs.

President Trump is pouring salt into the gaping Senate Democrat wound, taunting Senator Schumer over his “humiliating defeat,” saying that “if there is no Wall, there is no DACA.”

The chances are pretty good that Republicans will pass a DACA bill and get funding for the president’s wall,  as both conservative and middle-of-the-road  members of Congress seem to be on the same page about DACA.

Rep. Ted Yoho (R), one of the most hawkish Republican congressman in the House on immigration reform, says that a DACA fix needs to be obtained, but that the parents of those kids need to pay a price for breaking U.S. immigration law.

“Yoho supports Trump’s “wall” but doesn’t believe that a fence or wall is needed to cover the entire length of the U.S. southern border with Mexico, adding that regardless of the length of the wall, the focus needs to be on absolute “border security”

Yoho wants to legalize those DACA kids, but insists that the parents need to pay a price from breaking U.S. immigration law, saying that “the goal is not to deport” but to “get them some form of legal status” or put them on a “probationary period.”-(Source)
