Source: The Hill



BY JORDAIN CARNEY - 02/19/18 12:45 PM EST

Congress is poised to kick a heated immigration fight into overtime, with no clear path forward.

With the Senate rejecting four proposals—including President Trump's preferred plan and a key bipartisan deal—and no viable back up plan in-sight, lawmakers are poised to hit pause on the issue until at least next month as they go back to the drawing board. It’s a stark contrast from just a week ago, when senators had hoped to gain momentum coming out of what they anticipated to be a free-wheeling floor fight.

Instead, both sides are pointing fingers and raising fresh questions about what, if anything, can win over two deeply divided chambers and the White House.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is now pointing to the end of March as the deadline for his chamber to take action on an immigration bill. He’s pledged he will only bring up legislation that has the president’s support, making it a non-starter for many Democrats.

2. WHY?

The majority of Americans support the Dreamers staying here, so why won't Congress listen to their constituents? It is the same with gun control and affordable health care. When will voters wake the Hell up?

4. The majority of Americans want healthcare for all

and legalized cannabis and a hundred other things.

But the koch bros, Mercer's, Walton's and Adelson don't.

They are the only constituents that count to republicans.

3. It's amazing how quickly this has completely fallen off the radar

I know there has been a lot of awful news lately, but this is still a major fail.

6. They've kicked the can so long, they're tired of that one, and will come back to it later.

Time to kick the can on Guns until that gets old, then back to immigration or something else.
