Democrats Lose Immigration Clout But May Gain an Election Issue

There are 6 comments on the Bloomberg story from Feb 12, 2018, titled Democrats Lose Immigration Clout But May Gain an Election Issue. In it, Bloomberg reports that:

Congressional Democrats who provided needed votes to reopen the government after Friday's brief shutdown now head into a fight over the intractable issue of immigration with their clout to help young undocumented immigrants known as Dreamers clipped significantly. Republicans successfully separated debate over a must-pass budget deal, which funded government operations and raised budget caps, from a quest by Democrats to shield from deportation for as many as 1.8 million Dreamers.

Democrats aren't shielding dreamers. They're pushing them to the brink. Republicans will accept a dreamer settlement but Democrats have to give too. And in reality, what are they giving? Border and interior security. I'm sure if it were up to the dreamers if they would accept enhanced border security in exchange for their normalization, they would almost be unanimously in favor of more security. The Democrats don't stand with the dreamers. The Democrats don't want a Trump brokered solution. If Hillary were President, they would jump at the chance to sign the same bill and let the evil MSM justify their decision. Democrats are using dreamers as pawns in their open border schemes. The only road for dreamer normalization is the Goodlatte bill and the people blocking that are all Democrats and neocons.

The Democrats are a lost cause, but fortunate for them there will always be stupid sheepie wanting to be fleeced.
There will always be gullible and impressionable young people who happen to be legal citizens and white to be made ashamed by liberals in high places.
The liberals make them think they should be ashamed of being that way.

Just look at how proud Nancy Pelosi is that her grandson is ashamed to be white.

seems her grandson sees it that she pays more attention to dreamers than him so wishing to change to get grand ma's attention. that is sad.
