    'This week is pivotal' for ensuring DACA fix by year's end, House Republican says

    'This week is pivotal' for ensuring DACA fix by year's end, House Republican says

    by Laura Barrón-López | Dec 11, 2017, 7:26 PM

    This week will be “decisive” in determining whether Congress is going to pass a legislative fix for undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children by the end of the year, said Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla.

    Curbelo stressed that time is running out for lawmakers working on a compromise that effectively weds a solution for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and border security measures.


    “This week is pivotal,” Curbelo told reporters. “Unless the Senate is able to produce something, if we don’t get a product out this week, I think it’s going to be very difficult to do it by the end of the year.”

    The bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus is working on compromise text they want pushed through before the end of the year as part of negotiations on the larger year-end spending bill Congress must pass by Dec. 22 to keep the government open into the new year.


    Curbelo leveled some criticism at the leaders of the Problem Solvers Caucus in particular, saying “there’s been a reluctance to come out and say this is what we propose.”


    “The Problem Solvers Caucus as far as I’m concerned has a product,” Curbelo said. “The leadership of the caucus has not agreed to allow that product to be published. It reflects a very healthy compromise.”


    “I hold the leadership of the caucus responsible for where we are,” he added.


    Pressed on why he blames the leaders — Reps. Tom Reed R-N.Y. and Josh Gottheimer D-N.J. — Curbelo said the co-chairs “have not presented the compromise to the entire caucus to try to get the votes necessary to proceed and time is running out. ”


    Reed and Gottheimer defended the work by the caucus, issuing a joint statement in response to Curbelo's comments.


    "We are working around the clock to find a dreamer-border security solution, including a meeting we just had this evening with members of the Problem Solvers Caucus and bipartisan leaders on immigration issues," the co-chairs said in a statement. "We are more interested in getting it right than rushing to a reckless plan that fails to achieve a bipartisan solution for the American people.”


    Curbelo said the compromise includes Dream Act components to provide a path to citizenship, but didn’t specify. It doesn’t include money for a wall, but does include funds for “some physical barriers but [they’re] very modest.”


    There’s no interior enforcement provisions, Curbelo said, referring to measures that would bulk up state and local enforcement and one that would make E-Verify mandatory for all employers.


    “This should have been out two weeks ago, three weeks ago,” he said. Asked if the caucus has any assurances from GOP leadership that a compromise like theirs would be moved through the House, Curbelo deflected, saying the bipartisan working group needs to just release a product first.


    “But, that takes time which is why it’s been frustrating that we are where we are,” he said. “I’m hopeful that we can get it all done this week and take a run at it next week.”


    To do that, Curbelo said, lawmakers on both sides have to realize they aren’t going to get their “ideal” bill.

    A number of Democrats — House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi included — have said they won’t leave town without a fix for DACA recipients.


    There's also a working group on the Senate side trying to come to an agreement on DACA and border security provisions.


    Some lawmakers have said they have until March to take action, but Dreamers are already reeling from President Trump’s decision to revoke the program. If Congress delays a fix, DACA recipients whose permits expire after March 5 won’t be able to renew them and large numbers will lose their jobs, and face the risk of deportation.

    Hopefully there will be too much squabbling among the amnesty backers. If they can not agree on how far to push the numbers allowed, who to allow to remain, then it will fall apart to the benefit of the American people. Terrorist attacks go against illegal alien amnesty and refugee resettlement.

    It doesn’t hurt to remind both faces of Donald Trump that our support of him is conditional on his fulfilling the promises he made to us. Make him insecure and he will behave himself. You know what the RINOS he has chosen as advisors are telling him: “So let them (we who are against amnesty) get mad. Where are they to go, to the Hillary and the Democrats? They have no choice but to get over it.”

    Well there is always Mike Pence. Yes Pence hardly seems to be the fighter Trump is supposed to be. But if we threaten to topple Trump it would serve as a warning to Pence that we could break him too. It seems the only thing these guys respond to is brutal use of power.

    Trump could have ended DACA immediately but he delayed enforcement 6 months – why? The nightmare called “Dreamers” need time to get their stuff together? Fine end it in 3 months and put congress on notice that he will veto any bill giving them legal status.

    Instead Trump tries to con us with the illusion of fulfilling his promise to end DACA, but with his unnecessary 6 month delay, he merely gets Congress do his dirty work for him i.e. giving the nightmare called “Dreamers” amnesty. So Congress turns what is illegal into something legal. And there it is, Trump is all for “legal” immigration. And that kind of flim-flam shyster trick is a thoroughly dishonest act. And that is why I don’t trust him anymore. We did not elect him to make DACA legal, we elected him to end it.


    Keep calling. Don’t worry about doing it often. It will prove they can not just brush you off and it will make them worry.

    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 Congressman. Congressional switchboard: 202 224 3121 ask for them by name. Look up their local offices and call them too.

    Can some of you please help ALIPAC get a list of all of the members of the Problem Solvers Caucus?

    Would also help if we knew who the biggest donors were to their backing group called No Labels 501c3

    Problem Solvers Caucus

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Created in January 2017, the Problem Solvers Caucus is a bi-partisan group in Congress that includes approximately 40 members– equally divided between Democrats and Republicans – who are committed to forging bi-partisan cooperation on key issues. It is co-chaired by Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ) and Rep. Tom Reed (R-NY). [1]

    Writing in the New York Times about the formation of the Caucus, Reed and Gottheimer said: “We all knew the partisanship in Washington had gotten out of control and felt the need to create a bipartisan group committed to getting to “yes” on important issues.” We have agreed to vote together for any policy proposal that garners the support of 75 percent of the entire Problem Solvers Caucus, as well as 51 percent of both the Democrats and Republicans in the caucus.” [2]


    The Problem Solvers Caucus developed over time as an outgrowth of informal meetings organized by the political reform group No Labels. Past successes include the introduction of nine bipartisan bills to reduce government waste and inefficiency and the passage of the No Budget, No Pay Act of 2013. [3]


    The Caucus’ signature success to date occurred on July 31, 2017, when its members unified behind a bipartisan health care fix to shore up the nation’s struggling health insurance exchanges and to reduce premiums for individuals, families and small businesses. The Washington Post described the Caucus plan as “a viable bipartisan compromise focused on stabilizing health-care markets rather than enforcing one party’s will on the nation.” [4]
