    What do you call "meaningful immigration reform"?

    I doubt there will be any border security. Trump is giving the dems something they want but getting nothing in return. It just shows what a fool he is because he keeps getting played like the fool he is. Worse, Republicans aren't going to do any real tax reform, they are just going for tax cuts for the wealthy by lowering the top marginal rate, but taking away deductions for the middle class. It is their usual reverse Robin Hood.

    The one silver lining is they will likely not get 60 votes in the Senate so that will be another attempt to give the lobbyists what they want which blows up in theor face because it is a turd sandwich.

    Real tax reform would be companies paying taxes based upon where they sell their goods and services instead of setting up a P.O. Box in some tiny island nation and never paying any taxes on their profits. What the Republicans are currently doing is just lowering top marginal rates which would mean even fewer companies or wealthy people paying any income tax at all. How is that "reform"?

    Republican (Congressional) Leadership's current plan is to pass their upper class tax cuts through reconciliation so only need 50 votes.

    Trump has signaled he'd like actual Tax Reform so wants it to be bipartisan.

    Dinner already tried a similar meme from far right groups.

    It was just as much bullshit (as in completely false) now as when he posted it.

    HINT: Someone imprisoned before the creation of DACA can't be DACA.

    Holy shit you guys, the President might not have actually realized what repealing DACA meant:

    Trump on DACA recipients: Does anyone really want to 'throw out' good, educated young people?
    Answer: yes--your base and your AG literally wants this.

    He is definitely that or at least a not very well informed narcissist but he most certainly knows what DACA is. He is now trying to sell agreement in a desperate attempt to pretend he some how didn't flip flop. It won't work.

    Oh, it may very well get passed but the far right, the only people who actually like Trump, are very much going to remember that he betrayed them.

    The average native-born citizen is far more likely to murder you than the average Dreamer.

    Conversely, the average Dreamer is far more likely to make a meaningful contribution to society than the average brain-dead Trumpster.

    As if their is a category of murder that can be described as "gently"

    For me it has very little to do with "nativism" and a whole lot to do with obeying the law and having a society which generally has the rule of law. People who come legally are welcome; people who break the law and arrogantly spit in the face of the law abiding absolutely should be told you will never be able to call the US home.

    Fantastic! Many undocumented immigrants did in fact come here legally. I'm glad you've seen the error of your ways.

    In this case, the first thing they threw in was "DACA" when the murderer descirbed here has nothing whatsoever to do with DACA.

    The Mexican ethno nationalists are now protesting and verbally attacking Democrats for daring to make an agreement which would give amnesty to 800,000 illegal aliens but increase border enforcement against the rest of the criminal illegal aliens. Can it be any more obvious they will never be happy with anything less than open borders, that they laugh at our laws and have no intentions of ever obeying them, or that they are extremists? The video of Nancy Pelosi trying to calm the ugly racist monster she tried to ride for political gain would be hilarious if it wasn't so terrible for our country.

    http://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-us...cy-pelosi-heckled-as-liar-in-dreamers-protest

    In other news there has been yet another high profile murder case in L.A. by a criminal illegal alien which ICE wanted to deport but who got released back on to our streets due to L.A. City's policy of being a sancuary city. The madness needs to stop.

    Hate crimes are made up nonsense there should be no hate crimes and just regular crimes. Murder is murder, assualt is assault, and the race baiters shpuld be forced to follow the same laws as everyone else.

    So what? Are you so weak reading some facts and opinions which challenge your own preconceptions will break you? Do you need a safe space, bro? Did the mean facts you dislike scare you?

    So learn to read moron. You claimed the piece was 'by the Hill' when the freakin byline clearly says the exact opposite.

    So did you not read the article or were you intentionally lying?

    So you are doubling down on stupid and avoiding the issues raised? Typical but not unexpected. Rather sad and pathetic really.

    well yes, shockingly people have a variety of opinions, including some who are fucking absolutist about one thing or another.
