Republicans are on the losing side of this argument and the failure to resolve DACA will hang around their necks at the mid-terms. Rejection of a bipartisan deal shows how ineffective Republicans really are at being able to govern our country. An overwhelming majority of Americans support DACA and Republicans need to be given this message at the mid-terms, specifically in booting them out of office.
...
With regards to Cornyn's comments about how "six people bind the other 94 in the Senate," he only needs to go back to the prior legislative actions of Republicans where a limited number met in closed door meetings to bind the other members of the Senate on controversial legislation.

So one of the 4 extra Republicans in the room was Arkansas' own Tommy Boy Cotton. A life long azz kisser to move to the top. His children will grow up and become haters, and probably hate him!

Why do an "overwhelming" majority of Americans support DACA? (A biased opinion) I don't think we owe them anything, as they came illegally into this country, even though brought by parents. They could have applied for citizenship as they've had plenty of time. Illegals often have more "rights" than citizens which makes no sense.

Trump uses vulgar language? Racial bias? Picky,picky, picky BS. Haiti is a sh** hole (ask the Clinton Foundation what happened to all that relief money) and parts of Africa the same.
DACA was a problem issue that Obama and other presidents kicked down the road and failed to properly address. I agree with comments stating that these illegals have had Y E A R S to change their status, but why bother when no one (until Trump) is forcing the issue.

drs, just more lies from you and others. DACA was dealt with by Obama after Congress refused to act on it. Now that it's come time for Trump to act, he's creating an impossible feat thinking he could get an unpopular wall out of the deal. Both you and gohogs don't really understand the situation with DACA just why not either do research (I know that's almost impossible for gohogs) or just be quiet while intelligent people discuss this.

The political elites are not accustomed to dealing with someone that doesn't owe them anything and isn't worried about the next election, and they aren't handling it very well. President Trump is throwing them so many curves they are as lost as a goose in a hail storm.
.
"CONSEQUNSES" "MORON!!"....... OMG, you cannot make this stuff up. Any moron can spell consequences.

I LOVE Graham’s snarky takedown of Cotton. Much deserved!
- Pack - We have troops in every country Trump called a s-hole. He just put all those troops at even greater risk. I hope Mattis took him to the wood shed.
- DACA does NOT provide a path to citizenship. DACA recipients CAN apply for green cards and after having one for at least 5yrs, can apply for citizenship. According to USCIS data which Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) released in Sept, just under 60K (of 800K DACA recipients) had applied for green cards, 39K had been approved, and 1K of those ultimately led to citizenship. It’s hardly accurate to say that in the 6rs since DACA, that .001% of receipients having achieved citizenship is some massive loophole.

Pack's own spelling errors are legion and a matter of record.

Stupefyingly hypocritical, as is typical.
