Here is the one page summary: https://www.judiciary.senate.gov/im...d Succeed Act of 2018 - One-Page Summary.pdf

Bullets:

  • Border Wall Spending - $25 Billion
  • Ends Catch and Release
  • Increases Human Smuggling / Trafficking Penalties
  • Kate's Law
  • Addresses Unaccompanied Minors
  • Ends VISA overstays - With a (30) day grace period
  • E-Verify
  • DACA - 1.2 Million Approved
  • Ends Chain Migration of Extended Family


It all sounds like good points. If the summary is in line with the actual bill. I support it.

It does fall short of the 1.8 Million Trump targeted for amnesty with DACA - https://www.cnn.com/2018/01/25/politics/white-house-immigration-framework/index.html

Sounds like pointless masturbatory fodder created for the pleasure of the president.

Besides, the jackass said Mexico was paying for the wall. Why are we paying this $25,000,000,000?

Given Trump's repeated assurances that Mexico would be paying for the wall, I still think we use federal funds to match wall spending with Mexico. If Mexico provides a billion for the wall, another billion should be matched out of federal funds.

Ok then what's your plan? What would you like to see happen?
Nothing. Call the Presidents bluff. Pass a clean bill to grant a path way to citizen ship for those already registered in DACA and deal with immigration and the wall separately. If he refuses start deporting people if he dares and see you in November.
The only way to deal with Trump is to call his bluff. At the end of the day he is as strong as a paper tiger.

Illegals cost America $113 BILLION per year. $25 Billion would be saving us money.

So the left gets what they want and no one else does. Not a great plan.
