Compare and contrast:
1. "He said he does support a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers. He specifically said he didn't want to see any Dreamers deported and that he didn't think that anybody wanted to see that
2. Cotton, a Republican from Dardanelle, has fought efforts to pass stand-alone DACA legislation
*
His actions are shouting so loud I can't hear what he is saying. Tommy is speaking out of both sides of his mouth with a forked tongue. Tommy lies.
*
About "As he prepared Thursday for his protest, Gabriel Lopez, 20, said he was following the example of the civil-rights activists of the 1950s and 1960s." We do in fact seem to be heading toward the civil unrest, demonstrations, and marching in the streets of that era. How soon before the National Guard is killing our kids again like at Kent State?
*
This unrest is because our government is ignoring the wishes of a majority of Americans in order to pander to the farthest right wing extremist base. A Morning Consult poll showed 73 percent of voters want legislation protecting Dreamers from deportation, and just 35 percent say ending the DACA program was the right thing to do.

23, your math doesn't add up correctly. Let's see, 73% of voters want to protect Dreamers while 35% are against DACA. 73 + 35 = 108
Of course, you libs just want it your way even if it isn't right.

Well, goghogs, I can see where your black and white world and reading comprehension problems would bring you to that conclusion. I see it obviously means that there is an overlap where some who thought it was right for Trump to end DACA for legal or other reasons want something new to replace it and to protect the Dreamers. The two are only incompatible in your world.

79% of Americans want to extend DACA. Do republicans care? Nope. They will continue to break up families, and NOT do what's right. Not only is the party racist, they seem to want to hold working people down. Again, Dems and Inds will have to clean up the mess made by republicans, who are trying to dismantle, destroy, and defang our federal government.

Trump won the election and is president.
He does not have to take a poll before he acts.
Now, if you liberals want to say ............" But Trump didn't get the majority of the popular vote".....

Did President Clinton, after the 92 election, take a poll every time he proposed anything?
(Bill Clinton only got 42% of the popular vote in 1992 )

LRDAWG............you are twisting my words !

I addressed 2 seperate issues that liberals cry about.

#1.........." 2nd place president "
We elect our president by electoral votes and Trump came in 1st ( Hillary 2nd "

#2..." majority of people didn't vote for Trump "

True, but Clinton only got 42% of the popular vote in 1992.

Prove my posts wrong.

LRDAWG..........I never said Clinton didn't win the popular vote in 92 !

WE DON'T ELECT PRESIDENTS BY POPULAR VOTE .

I did say Clinton only got 42% of the popular vote .

Reading comprehension problems ?
