8. Votes in congress are not representative of the will of the electorate.

 

They should be but we all know they are not.

And as usual this particular piece of garbage passed the house on party lines and died a quick death in the senate. The house has been passing all sorts of nonsense that never goes anywhere that does not mean the political will is there.

Millions took to the streets in response to this bill and it died the quick death it deserved. Made it pretty obvious that people did not support it and the publics over all outlook on immigration has only softened since then despite the small minority of trump idiots out there.

Two in three U.S. adults favor a plan to allow immigrants who are living illegally in the U.S. to remain in the country and become citizens if they meet certain requirements over time. Far fewer support allowing those immigrants to remain in the U.S. to work for a limited period of time (14%), or to deport all of these immigrants back to their home countries (19%). U.S. adults' views have been largely stable over the past decade.


Amazingly 33% of the electorate just about covers all of trumps support in the primaries. What he has now is all he gets and it is not nearly enough to win the general.
