Republican Swamp Monsters Drop E-Verify from Senate DACA Plan – Will Likely Include DACA Amnesty in House Spending Bill
It should be clear at this point that Republican leadership has different priorities than Republican voters.
Republican voters want a border wall, Obamacare repealed, tax cuts and for Trump to clean the swamp.
The GOP Swamp Monsters wants open borders and amnesty.
The Republican Senate dropped E-Verify from the DACA plan they are working on.
But some outlines of an agreement are becoming clearer. For instance, the senators have all but ruled out including a mandatory workplace verification system known as E-Verify in a final DACA agreement, according to multiple lawmakers engaged in the talks.
And Paul Ryan is reportedly going to include DACA amnesty in this fall’s spending bill.
The Huffington Post reported:
House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) privately conceded to a group of House conservatives on Tuesday that he plans to include a legislative fix for undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children in a year-end spending deal.
Asked if he envisioned a December omnibus spending bill including Cost Sharing Reductions for Obamacare or some sort of solution for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, Ryan told leaders of the Republican Study Committee that he didn’t believe CSR payments would be part of the deal with Democrats, but that DACA would.
“He did talk about the fact that that would be good if we could get ahead of that as opposed to being reactionary,” RSC Chairman Mark Walker (R-N.C.) told HuffPost Tuesday night.
When HuffPost asked Walker if Ryan had said Republicans didn’t have the votes to do something on DACA alone, and therefore needed Democratic support, Walker said, “It wasn’t as clear cut as that ― and it rarely is, actually ― but he did make reference that [DACA provisions] would be something that might be part of the whole ball of wax.”
