    By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Monday, January 21, 2019

    Senate Republicans on Monday released the text of their bill to carry out President Trump’s new immigration plan to end the government shutdown, saying they’re intent on holding an initial vote later this week.


    The bill, dubbed “End the Shutdown and Secure the Border Act,” includes Mr. Trump’s $5.7 billion request for border fencing and a new $12.7 billion disaster relief package, combined with bills to reopen nine government departments that have been without money for a month.


    It would also grant a three-year amnesty from deportation to about 1 million migrants who are currently here under executive actions, but whose legal status beyond that is highly questionable. That includes some 700,000 illegal immigrant “Dreamers” who are protected by the Obama-era DACA program and another 325,000 migrants who are under a tentative humanitarian protected status.


    The bill also includes funding for a daily average of 52,000 detention beds to hold immigrants awaiting deportation. That’s in line with Mr. Trump’s request, but far more than Democrats have said they are willing to accept. A new contingent of 750 Border Patrol agents is also part of the plan — which Democrats have also been cool to.

    And the legislation includes changes to the law to allow for children from key Central American countries to apply for asylum from outside the U.S. — but in exchange, it allows the government to speed up deportations for illegal immigrant children from Central American who sneak into the U.S., putting them on par with children from Mexico who are already subject to expedited removals.


    The bill, introduced by Appropriations Committee Chairman Richard Shelby, runs to 1,301 pages.


    “The president has proposed a serious compromise to end this shutdown,” Mr. Shelby said. “It would not only fund the government and secure the border, but also provide immigration reforms the Democrats have long supported.”

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell could bring it to the chamber floor Tuesday and force an initial vote to head off a Democratic filibuster Thursday.


    But Democratic leaders have already signaled resistance to the plan even before seeing the details, based on the outline Mr. Trump announced over the weekend.


    Prodded by left-wing activists and immigrant-rights advocates, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has called the concept of a border wall “an immorality” and has said she won’t approve any new money for the project.


    Democrats also object to changes to speed up deportations from within the U.S., arguing the children and families attempting to jump the border aren’t illegal immigrants as much as they are refugees from a rough life back home, who deserve a chance to make a claim for protection here.


    Instead, Democrats say they want to focus on drug trafficking at the border, and they have proposed more customs officers and scanning technology to man the land border crossings where they say most of those hard drugs transit.


    A bill to reopen the government’s shuttered departments, combined with those more limited border measures, is slated for a vote in the House this week.

    750 more Border agents= 750 more to roll out the welcome mat, catch the babies they throw over the fence, pull them out of rivers.

    It does absolutely nothing about stopping one illegal from entering this country---not one!

    It was supposed to be 2,750 more agents, I don't know if that's a typo in the reporting or the Senate changed it.

    We do not need 750 more and we certainly don't need 2,750 more. BP does absolutely nothing to stop this invasion, they give assistance to the invaders. We are going in a vicious cycle, spinning wheels and adding to our problem. If BP was allowed to STOP the invaders, it would be different, but they are not.

    We do not want to pay for beds and more agents. This is bankrupting us!

    Catch and deport.

    We want the loopholes closed, birthright citizenship terminated, freebies stopped including schools, tax refunds and medical care.

    If they have no prior authorization to come here...we want them immediately processed and deported.

    It is absurd to have a policy where 2 billion people on the planet can show up on our doorstep and demand asylum.

    Are we going to have 100,000 beds next year?

    1,000,000 beds the following year?

    How about 2,000,000 beds? You all want to pay for that?

    How many beds are too many? Five is too many for me. Send them home!

    Congress … do your job and stop these insane policies now.

    No, Amnesty is not a part of my offer. It is a 3 year extension of DACA. Amnesty will be used only on a much bigger deal, whether on immigration or something else. Likewise there will be no big push to remove the 11,000,000 plus people who are here illegally-but be careful Nancy!

    More like "be careful" Trump...you are fired for even speaking of an 11 million amnesty deal.

    Their should be NO DEALS on the table on behalf of foreign citizens who do not belong in our country!

    What the heck is wrong with you people.

    Stop listening to Jared and Ivanka, we did not vote for them. Invite Ann Coulter to advise you on any and all future "deals" on immigration, she will set you straight, you have been misled by Grahamnesty and the swamp rats.

    No, there won't be any "big push", with an 8 to 9 year back-log of deportation hearings in the US DOJ for 800,000 already awaiting hearings and at best we only deport 87,000 a year, because obviously there can't be any "big push" for 11 million they haven't even arrested yet, let alone the other 19 million roaming our land. It's always good before you try to figure out where you're headed to know where you are. Or so it seems to me.

    It's like no one does math in their heads any more.

    I support as many detention beds as it takes to end catch & release. Additionally, I have no problem with supporting more BP agents if they're needed to adequately cover the border.
