Speaker Paul Ryan is set to pass the second largest spending bill in US history next to Barack Obama’s trillion dollar failed stimulus.
The budget funds all of the Democrat priorities including sanctuary cities and Planned Parenthood.
The bill will also funnel billions of dollars to Obamacare markets.
It’s even worse than we thought.
Paul Ryan is pushing the second largest spending bill in US history but the Omnibus only allows $1.8 billion on the Trump Border Wall and border security.
In January President Trump asked for $25 billion for his border wall project.
Paul Ryan is blocking Trump’s border project while funding EVERY Democrat priority in his RECORD Spending bill.
It is almost as if they don’t want to win the majority again in 2018.
Trump said he was optimistic he could come to an agreement with both Republicans and Democrats in the U.S. Congress that would appeal to hardliners seeking tougher rules for immigrants while also preventing the roughly 700,000 “Dreamers” from being deported.
“Tell them not to be concerned, ok? Tell them not to worry. We’re going to solve the problem. It’s up to the Democrats, but they (the Dreamers) should not be concerned,” Trump told reporters during an impromptu question-and-answer session at the White House.
Trump campaigned for president in 2016 promising tougher rules for immigration. In September, he announced he was ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program created by his Democratic predecessor Barack Obama, effective in March – unless Congress came up with a new law.
The program currently protects about 700,000 people, mostly Hispanic young adults, from deportation and provides them work permits.
Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, one of the lead lawmakers in the immigration negotiations, said Trump’s comments signaled a major breakthrough.
“President Trump’s support for a pathway to citizenship will help us get strong border security measures as we work to modernize a broken immigration system,” Graham said in a statement. “With this strong statement by President Trump, I have never felt better about our chances of finding a solution on immigration.”
“COULD GO EITHER WAY”
Graham was part of a bipartisan group of three dozen senators who met on Wednesday on Capitol Hill to discuss moving forward on immigration legislation.
