    DACA advocates see efforts gaining steam in the House

    DACA advocates see efforts gaining steam in the House

    12/01/17 05:34 AM EST



    Immigration advocates are increasingly optimistic that a deal can be reached in the House before year's end to provide permanent protections for young immigrants brought to the country illegally.

    Both Democrats and Republicans point to a flurry of working groups and bipartisan discussions on a replacement for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program as signs that a majority of House members want to see legislation on the floor and would vote for it.

    A group of a few dozen Republicans, led by Rep. Scott Taylor (R-Va.), is preparing a letter asking Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) for a DACA fix before year's end, according to Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) Chairwoman Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-N.M.).

    Taylor's office didn't immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.

    Lujan Grisham said the CHC, which Democrats use to spearhead immigration efforts, is increasingly working with Republican lawmakers on finding a DACA fix. She credited the group's whip, Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.), for building those bridges.

    Lujan Grisham said that Democrats would stay firm on a commitment to negotiate on government spending only when a path forward for DACA was resolved, pointing out that Republicans have enough votes to pass measures through the House.

    "They are in control," she said. "If you need any help we are right here."

    Veteran lawmakers who've been involved in previous immigration reform attempts are holding increasingly open discussions on the matter.

    After a long talk on the House floor with Rep. Mario Díaz-Balart (R-Fla.), Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) said "we're trying out to figure out how we get there."

    "Sometimes in politics, you know how you get things done? When everybody sees the dam's gonna bust," said Gutiérrez, who has announced he will not seek reelection.

    President Trump announced in September that he would rescind the Obama-era program, giving Congress a six-month period to replace the program that was enacted through executive action.

    Ryan, who has pushed to keep a DACA fix separate from a must-pass end-of-year spending bill, has stuck to Trump's March 5 deadline for a DACA fix, despite increasing pressure from Republicans to sort it out this year.

    And in the Senate, a GOP proposal was batted down by the top Democrat on the issue, Sen. Dick Durbin (Ill.), as it failed to include a path to citizenship for its beneficiaries.

    The number of House rank-and-file supporters is growing for a DACA fix, and they are being increasingly vocal in making their support known to leadership.

    Rep. Mark Amodei (R-Nev.) signed a discharge petition Wednesday — a proposal to override leadership and force a vote — on the Dream Act, a bipartisan measure that's become the Democrats' preferred vehicle for DACA relief.

    Rep. Mike Coffman (Colo.), the only other Republican who's signed the petition, suggested that support was moving in their direction.

    "Folks are more optimistic now for a solution," he said. "I'm pretty optimistic a solution's going to be done, certainly before March."

    Republican leadership is also feeling pressure from within to take action on DACA.

    A plan to play hardball on spending bills with Democrats — essentially testing their mettle — was abandoned after House Armed Services Committee Chairman Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) warned leadership he would not start 2018 without increased defense spending, Politico reported.

    Meanwhile, Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.) pledged to withhold his vote for any spending bill unless a DACA solution is reached, joining many Democrats.

    Curbelo, who earlier this month butted heads with the CHC over the group's refusal to allow a Republican to join, was praised by Lujan Grisham on Thursday.

    "To his credit, Rep. Curbelo is saying, 'Look, I want it by the end of the year, these values are important, I'm standing strong.' It gives you a sense that we are still working together," she said.

    The only ones optimistic in granting DACA amnesty are the traitors in Congress.


    How much louder do you want the American people to be?

    Millions of American voters put Trump in the WH to put a stop to illegal immigration,
    not grant amnesty.

    (This is a clip from the story posted by lorrie, however Breitbart included a picture of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, liberal democrats in the White House who are undoubtedly pushing for a DACA amnesty)



    The Hill: Push for DACA Amnesty Deal Gaining Steam in the House

    by BREITBART NEWS1 Dec 2017


    Renewed bipartisan efforts to hammer out a permanent fix for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program has illegal immigration advocates hopeful that a DACA amnesty deal will reach the House floor this year where “a majority of House members” want to see it passed, Rafael Bernal reports in the Hill.


    From the Hill:

    A group of a few dozen Republicans, led by Rep. Scott Taylor (R-Va.), is preparing a letter asking Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) for a DACA fix before year’s end, according to Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) Chairwoman Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-N.M.).


    Lujan Grisham said the CHC, which Democrats use to spearhead immigration efforts, is increasingly working with Republican lawmakers on finding a DACA fix. She credited the group’s whip, Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.), for building those bridges.

    Lujan Grisham said that Democrats would stay firm on a commitment to negotiate on government spending only when a path forward for DACA was resolved, pointing out that Republicans have enough votes to pass measures through the House.

    Veteran lawmakers who’ve been involved in previous immigration reform attempts are holding increasingly open discussions on the matter.

    After a long talk on the House floor with Rep. Mario Díaz-Balart (R-Fla.), Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) said “we’re trying out to figure out how we get there.”

    Tell Trump any legal status for illegal aliens is amnesty. No amnesty, for anybody, for any reason. If they put an amnesty bill on his desk he must veto it. If he does not veto, we will consider him to have betrayed us on the most important issue, and he will loose our support, and then his enemies will drive him out of office in disgrace. That ought to rattle his giant ego.

    White House comments line 202 456 1111. Sometimes, if you can’t get through on that line call, 202 456 1414 and say you want to comment on policy. Hours are 9 a.m. to
    4 p.m.

    Call your senators and your congressman and keep calling. Call all of their local offices. Call your friends and tell them to call their legislators. Patriots, be relentless, it is the only weapon we have to counter the huge money donors. Give them no peace. They expect us to yell for a little time, get tired and go away. If you don’t go away they will get worried. Most Republican politicians are opportunists, which mean they are cowards with no principles except their own personal interest. Make them worry about loosing the popular vote. Make them afraid of you because of your passion and because you don’t go away. Money can only buy advertisements; it can’t buy the vote of the majority, honest citizens. Remind them of that, and you be the voice of the voters.

    Washington DC switchboard 202 224 3121 give the operator the name of your congressman or senator they will connect you.

    Don’t forget to look up their local offices on your own.

    As the great American patriot, David Horowitz, has said “, politics is war by other means.” So, I trust people understand that I am using metaphor here: Now we are engaged in a pitched battle. Rally to the flag, get into the trenches and up over the ramparts, charge to the sound of the cannons. And fight until you are soaked with sweat and still fight on! And we will be victorious!!

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.
