Tucker: Dems don’t have an honest discussion about immigration want

Tucker: The Left does not believe that America has the right to stop poor people from coming over our southern border, under any circumstances, legal or not. The majority of voters do not agree. It would be nice to have an open national debate on this before the midterm elections. But that is the last thing the Democrats want. You would lose. To lashes so instead of you, your followers into a frenzy of mindless rage. #Tucker

The house of representatives is to vote and the barrel distortion in the direction of, which appeared on two major trump-backed immigration proposals Thursday, but both bills have little chance of passage as the tensions between the warring GOP factions, cooked in the course of this week.

For the Congress-a Republican-who’s in for an embarrassing defeat last year in a failed vote to repeal key elements of ObamaCare — backup of immigration reform is an important goal, prior to the November mid-term elections has been suffered.

The stakes for the voices, are particularly high, as they come only a day after President Donald Trump signed a surprise executive order to end the separation of families that enter illegally in the country.

One of the bills, a compromise approach to the branded of the majority whip Steve Scalise, R-La., as the “President’s bill,” would billion adequate financing for Trump’s proposed border wall, in the amount of $25. It is also a path to citizenship for the nearly 1.8 million so-called “dreamers would be brought,” illegal immigrants to the United States at a young age.

The other bill up for a vote on Thursday, compiled by House Judiciary chair Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., she takes a more conservative approach. It would afford the nearly 700,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients are only temporarily protected legal status that could be renewed for an indefinite period of time, instead of a full path to citizenship.

Protection for recipients of Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program in the two house votes.


And it would allow about $25 billion for the border wall and security at the border-but the money would not be suitable formally, what is a senior House GOP leadership aide told Fox News it was important for the President.

Neither solution faces good odds on Thursday. Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N. C., President of the influential conservative house freedom Caucus, open to the compromise approach Wednesday mocked.

“The compromise bill is not ready for prime time,” meadows told reporters. “There are things that were supposedly in the compromise bill, which is not in the compromise bill, we had all agreed to.”


In a dramatic moment Wednesday, a visibly angry faced speaker of the house of representatives Paul Ryan on immigration meadows directly on the floor of the house, as the two Republicans pointed to another. Sources told Fox News that the dispute arose from the confusion about the two immigration bills the house is expected to consider Thursday.

At one point, meadows said simply, “I’m done! I’m done!” and walked away.


Several Republican members, told Fox News they were disturbed by the fight between Ryan and meadows. A source said, a couple of members, the winds of a “hard Yes” on the immigration legislation, were now “” after the confrontation.

To add to the confusion, the house has also been toying with a third piece of legislation, a modified version of the conservative Goodlatte bill.

Goodlatte told Fox News the revised draft of a new merit-based immigration category, creates and expands the eligible DACA population.

“We are voting for the modified Goodlatte bill, and we would prefer, because we think it has a better chance of a higher rating,” meadows said Tuesday night.


To derail holds a vote on the conservative Goodlatte bill is important for the house leadership, because it would defuse additional efforts by the house freedom Caucus, the vote on the comprehensive federal farm bill set for sometime this week. The farm bill would be more stringent animal include protection restrictions.

The conservative liberty Caucus had threatened to hold up a vote on the farm bill, without a vote on the conservative Goodlatte’s immigration bill.

But on Wednesday, a senior House GOP source told Fox News, to pass the necessary votes, either bill would be a tough fight.
