McCain, Coons Introduce New Immigration Deal That Omits Wall Funding



John McCain is back and screwing things up once again. He’s lost a lot of weight from his brain cancer treatments, but before his time on earth is done, he’s determined to stick it to President Trump and America in general. Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain and Delaware Democratic Sen. Chris Coons introduced a bill today that would grant eventual citizenship to DACA illegal immigrants who have been in the country since 2013 and who came to the US as children. However, it would not end “chain migration” or the diversity visa program. Oh, and it doesn’t fund the wall either. What the bloody hell? It gives everything to the Democrats, just as they wanted and nothing to Republicans. McCain can get stuffed. President Trump blasted the deal and it is dead on arrival.

All McCain wants to do is ‘study’ border security needs. He’s got to be freaking out of his mind. The bill would also seek to address the number of undocumented immigrants staying in the US by increasing the number of resources for the immigration courts, where cases can take years to finish. But his deal would definitely give Amnesty to illegal immigrants. Gee, an American hero who hates America… go figure. Let’s just be brutally honest here. He’s a another Democrat pretending to be a Republican to sabotage the right.

The bill is a companion to a piece of House legislation that has 54 co-sponsors split evenly by party. And it will die before it barely sees the light of day. This is not what Americans want and they didn’t elect these idiots to just betray them like this in broad daylight. A White House official rebuffed the effort, telling CNN that it takes “a lot of effort” to write up a bill worse than the Graham-Durbin immigration bill, but somehow “this one is worse.” And that summarizes McCain in a nutshell. Trump tweeted about the latest immigration efforts Monday, writing, “Any deal on DACA that does not include STRONG border security and the desperately needed WALL is a total waste of time. March 5th is rapidly approaching and the Dems seem not to care about DACA. Make a deal!”

Legislation introduced by Texas Republican Rep. Will Hurd and California Democrat Rep. Pete Aguilar has been in the works for weeks. Officials have been informed while it was being drafted and Chief of Staff John Kelly and Legislative Director Marc Short have been briefed on the bill in meetings with members of Congress, including Hurd and Aguilar. The Congressional Hispanic Caucus, of which Aguilar is a key member, has been especially supportive of the bill as a compromise, as have moderate Republicans. The word ‘moderate’ there is the kiss of death as far as I’m concerned. Trump has also not embraced this bill, due to what isn’t in it. It doesn’t specify specific funding for pretty much anything.

For the border, the bill would create a “smart wall” where the Department of Homeland Security would gain “operational control” of the border by the end of 2020 through “technology, physical barriers, levees, tools and other devices.” But that’s not a physical wall by any means. On family-based migration, the bill doesn’t make explicit reference to sponsoring relatives, but the bill authors say that existing law would prohibit parents of these individuals who came to the US illegally to apply for a visa to come back without returning to their home country for at least 10 years before applying and the bill does nothing to erase that requirement. No wonder Trump hates it.

McCain said in a statement the new bill has “broad support.” Bull crap. “While reaching a deal cannot come soon enough for America’s service members, the current political reality demands bipartisan cooperation to address the impending expiration of the DACA program and secure the southern border,” McCain said in the statement. “It’s no secret that Congress is gridlocked, and there is a growing list of unaddressed issues we simply have to fix, but I still believe that we agree on more than we disagree on,” Coons said in the same statement. Coons is a stone cold Marxist by the way.

Remember, McCain was part of a failed effort in 2013 known as the Gang of Eight that would have provided a path to citizenship for immigrants living in the country illegally. Isn’t it funny that McCain, a decorated war hero, always sides with the Democrats and does everything he can do to harm his own party? And isn’t it funny that Lindsey Graham is his best bud? His bill is a disgrace and makes it abundantly clear why he would have made a horrific president. I’m heartened that Trump slammed this monstrous proposal. Trump is right, McCain is wasting out time.
