1. So? To the SCOTUS?

These kids need our help, and I hope the Dems come through for them. Not for wall or anything crazy. But I hope they are not forgotten.

2. :) That's interesting. Wonder what other pieces

are being moved into position. We have democracy reform, which includes many bills, as a top priority, of course, but most of those will have to wait for additional power.

Wonder what we would trade wall money for.

4. first, she'd like to see the Department of Homeland Security funded on a continuing resolution

rollcall:

Seven of the 12 annual appropriations bills, including the DHS measure, are currently running on a continuing resolution that expires Friday. The House and Senate and planning to pass another stopgap Thursday that will extend the funding deadline to Dec. 21.

Pelosi said said Thursday her preferred solution for meeting the new deadline is for Congress to pass the six appropriations bills that appropriators have agreement on with a continuing resolution for the DHS measure.

President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans want a minimum of $5 billion for the border wall. Many House Democrats don’t want any wall funding, while Senate Democrats have said they’re open to the $1.6 billion their chamber provided in its version of the DHS appropriations bill for “pedestrian fencing.”

The fiscal 2018 omnibus Congress passed this spring included $1.6 billion for border security that would have allowed fencing as well. A continuing resolution for DHS would authorize that same amount to be spent in fiscal 2019.

Pelosi said she would not interpret a DHS CR as allowing for continued construction of the border wall, saying the language does not provide for that.

“It’s immoral still, and we’re not going to pay for it,” Pelosi said.

6. Oh, of course. This is all in the context of the budget.

I wasn't thinking.

I love her comment that it is immoral. Yes, it is.

5. Interesting.

There's not a lot of time for a fix for DACA -and- TPS (temporary protected status). TPS is stuck in court as well, but who knows for how long and a lot of people are on schedule to lose their TPS protections by September of next year.

Will be interesting to see how DACA and TPS fit into this.
