    Gutierrez: Democrats Will Shut Down Govt If Dream Act Fails

    ISSUES, POLITICS

    Gutierrez: Democrats Will Shut Down Govt If Dream Act Fails





    On the heels of President Trump’s decision to rescind DACA in six months, Republicans in Congress are scrambling to devise a plan that both fixes the holes in immigration without giving away the farm while also preventing Democrats from getting their wish list on amnesty.

    But that may become exceedingly difficult this month as Rep. Luis Gutierrez is warning that Democrats are prepping to shut down the government if Republicans don’t pass the DREAM Act.

    Recall that President Obama issued the executive order for DACA after the DREAM Act failed in the Senate.

    This could be the fight that determines next year’s election results and whether Republicans lose control of Congress.

    Here’s more from Washington Examiner…

    Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., said he and other liberal House Democrats are prepared to support a government shutdown if House members fail to pass the Dream Act and protect hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants from being deported.

    “We have a Democratic caucus where I know the vast majority of the members of the Democratic caucus are ready to say ‘If there is no pathway forward, not only for the 800,000 and for visas for all of you, but also for the rest of immigrant youth through the Dream Act, then there is no government for anyone,'” Gutierrez said Friday during a press conference with the United We Dream advocacy group. “We will shut it down or let the Republicans keep it open with their own votes.”

    Rep. Raul Grijalva, D-Ariz., co-chair of the Progressive Caucus, who was also at the event, later confirmed to Mic that the “vast majority of the progressive caucus” support shutting down the government in this event.

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Tuesday that DACA would end under the Trump administration within six months, providing Congress time to respond accordingly. Obama established DACA in 2012 through an executive order, and it applies to approximately 800,000 illegal immigrants ages 15-36, protecting them from deportation.

    There is a bipartisan push by Sens. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., to pass legislation in the form of the Dream Act. With this bill, DACA recipients and others who have lived in the U.S. for four years would receive permanent legal status.

    “Republican leaders have the power the bring the Dream Act to a vote,” a senior caucus aide told Mic. “Until they do, we will continue to force a vote using a discharge petition and any other strategy that gets us a vote on the Dream Act.”

    Well, Luis, you won't be shutting anything down for the next 3 months. Trump was way ahead of you on that one.

    Would it be racist or bigoted or whatever is the latest label, if I noticed that many Hispanic politicians, LE, and judges/lawyers, etc. are pro illegal? Should it matter to them an illegal is Hispanic or not? That kinda makes me think maybe they aren't interested in Americans.

    No it wouldn't be. What they're doing is racist and bigoted, creating a special class of ethnics who are above the law and think they are entitled to special treatment. They are racists, not you, nntrixie. Most Hispanic Americans do not support these policies, they've just been in a spot politically to say what they really think. Behind black Americans, Hispanic Americans are the second line victims of illegal immigration. I honestly don't know why they put up with it.

    Actually the Democrats now have the upper hand. Thanks to Trump. Schumer, and Pelosi, they now have the power within the 6 month DACA extension window. Six, twelve, or eighteen months would have put it outside the Trump DACA protection window of March 5th. Of course Trump didn't consider that. He wanted anything he could call an accomplishment, damn the cost and end result.

    Yes, I know a lot of American Hispanics don't like the illegals. They not only are being put out of work because of illegals, they are being painted with the same brush as illegals and it hurts them.

    It is sad, but it is also human, American Hispanics take a lot of resentment due to the illegals. Some just because it's human, but because by now it's harder to differentiate between legal and illegal. Someone has to really be familiar with both to see it, and not even then.

    Also, these illegals do not have the same moral values of American Hispanics.

    In three the months the Demorats will be making more demands. That may very well be when we see them demand the Republican's bring a DACA amnesty program to the floor for a vote, assuming it hasn't already breezed through and been signed by Trump.

    I'm starting to think that many American Hispanic politicians' loyalty actually lies with Mexico, and not the United States.
