    Paul Ryan announces two immigration votes

    And we'd all like to fuck him very much for taking so long to do the right thing, i.e., run the government while he's wearing his big boy pants.

    Fucking asshole.

    Paul Ryan announces two immigration votes, halts rogue effort to force DACA issue

    WASHINGTON — Speaker Paul Ryan announced Tuesday night the House will consider two immigration bills next week to halt a bipartisan effort designed to force a series of votes on the divisive issue.

    It is the first time the House will take up legislation to protect undocumented immigrants that came to the U.S. as children, known as DREAMers.

    Ryan's announcement means GOP leadership has avoided an embarrassing defeat by rogue moderates of their party and every House Democrat. On Tuesday, the bipartisan group was just two signatures away from putting into a play a rare maneuver — known as a discharge petition — to go around the speaker and bring legislation to the floor


    I hope they will do this more often. Eight long years of it under Obama was enough, and Ryan was right: They got so used to being a roadblock, they forgot how to do their job.

    I can't see any legislation coming out of the House. I think this show is because dems and moderates pushed the issue.

    Remember the House is going to be a completely different place in 2019. Ryan will be gone and there will be more than enough votes to force the issue.

    The courts have dreamers protected till then.

    They were just two votes short of going around the speaker - so time will tell.

    Pelosi responded to Ryan's announcement Tuesday night on Twitter.

    "Protecting #Dreamers stands on its own merits. If Republicans plan to use Dreamers as a way to advance ⁦@realDonaldTrump⁩’s xenophobic, anti-immigrant agenda, they will get a fight from House Democrats," she tweeted.

    Good.

    They've been absolute fucking idiots on the DACA issue. The Dreamers bring a LOT to this country. We'd be poorer (both literally and figuratively) without them.
