Eh. That’s how checks and balances work. Congress has had decades to address illegal immigration. A President is finally doing something about it, which is his right and duty.
There’s plenty of room for compromise, Dems just don’t want to sell out their future voters.
Exactly Roy...good points...glad to know there are some here who don't fall for the CNN bull.
You know there’s bull on both sides, don’t you? I’ll admit it on my preferred side (I am CNN over Fox, though I’m pretty much a moderate) — and yet I have NO interest in accusing or blaming the other side for the problem. The reality is that both sides agree that the issue of border security and immigration reform must be addressed. And further, it seems to me that there is general agreement on many components of a sensible plan. Even “the wall”, which has become the battleground to die upon, has both sides in agreement that part of a sensible border security plan includes an element of strategic physical barrier. Very few (if anyone at all) claims to want a 2000 mile Great Wall. ALL want some barrier.
Bottom line is both sides are political and both sides can play both tough and childish. I don’t care who is more stubborn or pigheaded today, because tomorrow the other side will be. Time for Pelosi, Schumer, McConnell and Trump to lay down their swords and propose something we can all live with that gets the govt open and gets the US on the road to an intelligent, implementable, firm and compassionate border and immigration plan. Until that happens, blaming political parties or media outlets is folly and wasted energy.
I want to like people like Roy and Maxwell Smart and Roscoe the Libertarian— why? Because we generally (not precisely, but generally) agree on most aspects of border/immigration, and we are decent citizens, good people, and Celtics fans. I refuse to let Pelosi, Rand Paul, Ann Coulter, Rachel Maddow, or Donald Trump determine who I like or hate in this messed up dialogue and fractured political world.
We need to end the nonsensical vitriol. Start by getting a Kasich, Haley, Romney, Biden, Manchin, Baker or Bloomberg... in the White House.
