On Friday President Trump said that a “red wave” is needed to pass an immigration bill in Congress. He accused Democrats of “doing nothing but obstructing.”

The GOP leaders pulled a major immigration bill from consideration late on Thursday and pushed a vote into next week.

Did we expect anything different? No.

Earlier, Congressional Republicans had failed to pass a more conservative bill. This more moderate and compromise measure in the bill was expected to have a requirement that would use E-verify to check the legal status of employees.

Leaders have wanted to meet the president’s four pillars, which is a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants brought to this country as children while toning down both conservatives and moderates. It would have also included border security including a wall and end to so called “chain migration” and an end to the diversity lottery visa.

Conservatives are happy about funds for the wall but stuck on 1.8 million young illegal immigrants getting citizenship.

The conservative bill offers 700,000 of the Obama era ‘Differed Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) pregame the ability to apply for indefinite renewals of non-immigrant status.

They gave Democrats a chance here but they rejected both bills.

Trump tweeted:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., told reporters, “It is not a compromise. It may be a compromise with the devil, but it is not a compromise with the Democrats.”

On Wednesday Trump extended an invitation to Democrats to come to the White House to discuss immigration and said “it takes two to tango,” although he had scornful words for what he called the “extremist, open border” lawmakers.

Trump said, “They don’t care about the children…they don’t care about the problems. They don’t care about anything. All they do is say, ‘Obstruct and let’s see how we do’ because they have no policies that are any good.”

On Thursday, he echoed his expression, of the invitation. He left out his invitation for Democrats to come to the table.

He tweeted:

He also repeated his criticism of the filibuster in the Senate. That requires 60 votes to break.

On Wednesday Trump signed an executive order ending the practice and allowing families to be detained together. Democrats have now pushed for ending what they described as “indefinite detention” of families at the border.

Will you be voting for a RED WAVE? I will!
