Krysten Sinema, Thom Tillis Now Circulating a Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill for "Dreamers"

Gotta ram this through before the new Congress comes to town.

Supposedly, the deal is:

*Some form of path to citizenship for 2 million dreamers.

* A large boost in resources to speed up the processing of asylum seekers, including new processing centers and more asylum officers and judges.

* More resources to expedite the removal of migrants who don't qualify for asylum.

* A continuation of the Title 42 covid-health-rule restriction on migrants applying for asylum, until the new processing centers are operational, with the aim of a one-year cutoff.

* More funding for border officers.

The idea behind this compromise is this: It gives Democrats protections for 2 million dreamers and beefed up defenses of the due process rights of some migrants. It gives Republicans faster removal of migrants who fail to qualify for asylum to prevent them from remaining in the country, a continued restriction on applications for the next year and more border security.

Why shouldn't Title 42 be permanent?

As far as "more funding to expedite asylum cases:" if Title 42 (remain in Mexico) were permanent, this wouldn't be as necessary. Also, this is more Democrat smoke and mirrors; so, you're going to get the process reduced from nine years to, what, seven? And note, during this period, they're allowed to stay in the US -- and have children, who are automatically citizens, aka "anchor babies."

What about the absurd rules that get people asylum if they just tell the right lies? What about requiring actual proof of these claims?

And again, what about just making Remain in Mexico the rule going forward, permanently?

But whatever, I'm totally sure we'll get the benefit of the bargain on this, like we always do, on all of these amnesty plans.

Basically Biden just wants to extend Title 42 for another year because he's afraid the overrun border will hurt him politically.

But he wants the Republicans to give him something in return for something he himself needs.

And the Republicans are just stupid enough to give him something in return for nothing.

100 This proposed immigration deal is a flat no. These asylum processing changes are utter rubbish. All they change is exactly not a damn thing - the border will still be wide open with the illegals being released into country never to be seen again. And how is it that we suddenly have something approaching 10 million people all seeking asylum? Asylum is a code word to illegal immigration opponents that now means "we will cut your balls off if you oppose us."

To me, this reeks of giving the Democrats an "immigration reform" talking point for the 2024 election and buying more time until the number of illegals is so overwhelming the Democrats are going to come howling that the only solution to the problem they intentionally created is to grant citizenship to every last illegal.

Note that "gun control" and marriage redefinition - oh and "infrastructure" - were already carried through by the Senate GOP. During an election cycle.

129 It's now merely another footnote in the headlong collapse and disgrace that is the country, but hijacking the concept and policies for "asylum" is sickening and outrageous.

The US for decades was a leader in providing exactly what the initial intent was - asylum - for people actually being persecuted for political or other beliefs. It was a great moral policy.

Now it's been trashed and replaced with a ridiculous transparently dishonest "system" that is just mass illegal migration. Just a footnote, at this point.

148 The head of the Israel Bar Association warned Monday against legal reforms being pushed by members of the expected new religious-right coalition that would sharply curb the authority of the courts and allow politicians to determine judicial appointments.

The horror, the horror.

Supreme Court Judges are appointed by the President of Israel, from names submitted by the Judicial Selection Committee, which is composed of nine members: three Supreme Court Judges (including the President of the Supreme Court), two cabinet ministers (one of them being the Minister of Justice), two Knesset members, and two representatives of the Israel Bar Association. Appointing Supreme Court Judges requires a majority of 7 of the 9 committee members, or two less than the number present at the meeting.

In other words, existing Supreme Court members and the Israel Bar Association have a majority of the votes on the committee, not people who have actually been elected.

Remember, allowing elected representatives to choose judges is a way-station on the road to fascism!

Advertisers are now returning to Twitter after Tim Cook crawled into a fetal position shortly after talking to Musk.
====
Honestly, I have no idea what leverage Musk could really have. Cook has a whole, whole lot more power than Musk has. I doubt, for instance, he feels threatened by a phone manufacturing competitor. I doubt even Samsung would feel threatened by Musk in that arena, and they're the distant second in the market.

But it's apparently *something.*

224 As the symbol of the Roman Empire was a two-headed eagle, ours should be a two-headed vulture. Our "two" political parties are a single establishment that play-fights over hotbutton social issues, in a manner every bit as scripted as professional wrestling.

Our only hope at this point, in my opinion, is an Article V Convention that goes one of three ways:

1. Congressional Term Limits to shatter the stranglehold of the establishment.

2. Modifying the "first past the post" system to be less hostile to third parties, such as with runoff elections in cases where candidates in local or statewide races get less than 50%. This would make it easier for voters to vote their conscience in the general election, knowing that a runoff between the top two was likely.

3. Implementation of a national referendum system for a "Zero Confidence" referendum that could dismiss all elected and appointed officials in the Executive and Legislative branches with prejudice (where nobody who was removed in such a manner could run for office again), as well as all management-level Federal employees.

236 Unconditional surrender is not a winning strategy. Republicans are useless at the federal level but our system is designed to insure that the federal level is not all we have.

Posted by: Ernie McCracken at December 05, 2022 05:46 PM (6tDeH)

237 The way I see it-

As long as McConnell or one of his pals is essentially in control of the Republican Party even winni9ng at a national level makes no difference.

And voting against someone in the primary, like say Cornyn, never works cuz they're all hooked into the GOPe apparatus.

So, the simplest idea is to turn to using the Democrat Party to put a conservative in place against a RINO candidate.

This wouldn't be like Rush's operation whatever. A mass switch of Rep voters to Democrat could be enough to put a real conservative in place against the RINO by winning the primary.

A clever conservative could also find enough points of agreement to possibly get a bunch of Dim votes anyway.

The logistics of a mass switch might be too much to overcome, but the Democrats used to have a reasonably conservative faction until they went full commie. It's possible that the yellow dog Dims would vote for whoever was on the Democrat ticket.
Even a conservative.

The idea is to get enough conservatives in Congress of whatever party to block stuff.

Otherwise, the only option is a third party, which...is very unlikely to succeed without massive help financially.

262 Yeah, because our Government can AFFORD to spend more money on people who should not be here in the first place.

/spit.

Government spending is what is driving inflation... so of course, the governments solution is to spend more money.

Tim Cook, the CEO of the largest smart phone manufacturer in the world, disagrees with you. If he thought Musk had no leverage at all, Musk would be right now begging some knock off smart phone brands to download the Twitter App.

I don't doubt that he does. I do doubt that it's an ill-defined threat about an awesome new satphone.

268 I'm sure that one of you jackwagons has pointed out that "dreamers" already have a path to US citizenship: Take your ass home, go to the local US consulate and request the paperwork for emigration.

Besides, they already have citizenship... in their home countries.

Its clear from the Constitution that Congress controls the laws about immigration and naturalization... when the Supremoes ruled that Dual Citizenship was AOK, it was CLEARLY overstepping its powers.

That is the first step to cleaning up immigration IMO, get rid of dual citizenship.

This has been a point of contention in our church. The Pope wants us to welcome the illegals with open arms, and open wallets. Many have noted that there are Catholic churches in Mexico, too, and the illegals are already citizens there. Maybe those churches need to step up.

When the ship hits the sand and the junta decides to switch off cell phone towers to control the people, those thousands of LO commsats are going to be mighty handy to those the junta seeks to silence and eliminate.

We are already in a communist country without rule of law, its not that long before the ferals understand that and join the Left in the game of total economic/social destruction.

297 I get paid over $85 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I’d be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless.
