A recently released bipartisan ‘Dreamer’ agreement is heading towards a Senate showdown Thursday, with legislators prepared to publicly debate the bill that could provide a pathway to citizenship for upwards of two million illegal immigrants currently residing in the United States.
Congress is struggling to strike a deal -that would eventually be signed by the President- to solve the DACA crisis before the program officially ends on March 5; placing 1.8 million ‘Dreamers’ at risk of deportation back to countries many had not seen since an early age.
According to those close to the bipartisan legislation, the proposal would secure the fate of those protected under DACA while pouring billions into “border security.”
It remains unclear if “border security” funding could be used to begin construction of President Trump’s signature campaign promise: A physical wall along the United States’ southern border with Mexico.
The President has repeatedly stated there can be “no deal” on DACA without securing funding for his “border wall,” meaning any agreement that doesn’t directly fund construction may be dead-on-arrival when it reaches the Oval Office.
Sen. Lindsey Graham -who helped draft the legislation- signaled that the proposal offers “no safeguards” to the parents of those impacted by DACA, a preventative measure that could deny a “pathway to citizenship” to millions of illegal immigrants related to ‘Dreamers.’
DACA DELUSION: Kirsten Gillibrand Says ‘Chain Migration’ is a ‘RACIST SLUR’
New York Senator and possible 2020 presidential hopeful Kirsten Gillibrand continued her crusade against President Trump’s proposed immigration overhaul on Monday; telling television viewers that the term “chain migration” is somehow a “racist slur” against immigrants and foreigners.
Gillibrand was speaking with ‘The View’ when she unloaded on the President’s proposal to provide a pathway to citizenship for nearly 2 million ‘Dreamers’ in exchange for ending “chain migration” and increased funding for his border wall.
“Do you agree with Nancy Pelosi when she says Trump wants to ‘Make America White Again’ and that’s what this is all about?” asked co-host Joy Behar.
“I think a lot of President Trump’s rhetoric is racist. Let’s be very clear: When someone uses the phrase chain migration it is intentional in trying to demonize families, literally trying to demonize families and make it a racist slur, it is not right. We have to change the debate” Gillibrand said.

BOOK OF NANCY: Pelosi Invokes THE POPE, ROSARY During EIGHT HOUR DACA Rant
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi turned towards a higher-power during her eight-hour long speech defending DACA Wednesday, saying she should have brought her “rosary blessed by the Pope” to help Democrats pass legislation in support of nearly one million ‘Dreamers.’
Pelosi was speaking on the floor of the House when she suddenly mentioned Pope Francis and Pope Benedict, suggesting that liberal legislators should spend the day in prayer over new DACA legislation.
“During the night when I was thinking and praying so hard about our ‘Dreamers,’ I thought maybe we should just pray all day on the floor of Congress. Maybe I should bring my rosary blessed by the Pope,” said Nancy.
“I always remember Pope Benedict when he came. He spoke so beautifully,” she added. “He quoted an Augustine who seventeen centuries ago said that any government that is not formed to promote justice is just a bunch of thieves.”
“His holiness goes on to say, ‘Sometimes it’s hard to define what justice is, but in doing so we must beware of the dazzling blindness of power and special interests,” Pelosi added.
