So far, Trump did everything Putin wanted in The Mid-east, what a gift.

Democrats are saying that DACA is not worth it and don't want to include it talks. Many Hispanics will be coming over to the Republican side, watch! - Trump

That was a LIE and need to be corrected. The Democrats did include DACA in negotiations the last vote but was vetoed by Stephen Miller so, Trump needs to stop spewing that LIE, AGREE STEVE?

No Ron. The Democrats dropped DACA because the lower court ruled to overrule President Trump. That case is waiting to be heard by the Supreme Court.

The U.S. Supreme Court could eventually decide the fate of DACA, which has protected about 700,000 people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children or came with families that overstayed visas. Earlier this week, the Trump administration took the unusual step of asking the Supreme Court to take up the case even before any federal appeals courts had weighed in. It was the second time the administration sought review of its DACA decision by the Supreme Court.

In Thursday's ruling, 9th Circuit Judge Kim Wardlaw said California and other plaintiffs were likely to succeed with their claim that the decision to end DACA was arbitrary and capricious.

The Department of Homeland Security moved to end the program last year on the advice of just-fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who determined DACA to be unlawful because, he said, President Barack Obama did not have the authority to adopt it in the first place.

That was incorrect, Wardlaw wrote, noting that the federal government has a long and well-established history of using its discretion not to enforce immigration law against certain categories of people. Examples include President Dwight D. Eisenhower's decision in 1956 to extend "immigration parole" to 30,000 Hungarian refugees otherwise unable to remain in the U.S. and President Ronald Reagan's "Family Fairness" program, which allowed certain relatives of illegal immigrants who had been granted amnesty to likewise remain in the country.

While the federal government might be able to end DACA for policy reasons under its own discretion, it can't do so based on Sessions' faulty belief that the program exceeds federal authority, the court held.

"We hold only that here, where the Executive did not make a discretionary choice to end DACA — but rather acted based on an erroneous view of what the law required — the rescission was arbitrary and capricious," Wardlaw wrote. "The government is, as always, free to reexamine its policy choices, so long as doing so does not violate an injunction or any freestanding statutory or constitutional protection."

That said, the judges also declined to dismiss claims that the government's action might violate the constitutional rights of DACA recipients. The disproportionate effect the decision would have on Latinos might be unconstitutionally discriminatory, the court said, and the plaintiffs had also made a credible claim that it would violate due process for the government to turn around and use information they provided when they enrolled in DACA in deportation proceedings.

The Trump administration has said it moved to end the program last year because Texas and other states threatened to sue, raising the prospect of a chaotic end to DACA. The administration cited a 2015 ruling by another U.S. appeals court that blocked a separate immigration policy implemented by Obama.

The 9th Circuit disagreed with the New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and said one of its conclusions did not apply to DACA.

Can't you see that this is the plans of the Republican Party to GUT the DACA program all together is again at work here?


Thursday, January 17th 2019 at 9:20AM
Deacon Ron Gray
Trump did not offer to "gut" DACA. He offered amnesty for millions of DACA recipients. But obviously, DACA itself is an illegal executive action.

Democrats would be crazy to reject Trump's DACA deal

- President Trump's DACA immigration offer massively expands the number of so-called Dreamers who will get amnesty and citizenship.
- If the Democrats accept the deal, it would intensify the rift between right wing Republicans, who are angry about the offer, and the president.
- Democrats are publicly blasting the proposal. Here are three reasons they should take it and run.

Trump rejected a bipartisan agreement, now that the House has passed the Senet bipartisan bill and sent that same bill back to The Senate but now Mitch is covering for Trump because he is the gate keeper, why is he hiding?

More on this subject, is coming soon.

"Bipartisan" is a worthless concept Ron, worse than worthless, downright dangerous. You are a fool to use it.

Thursday, January 17th 2019 at 7:47PM
Steve Williams
So, you think that a two party system form of Government working together is a worthless concept worse than worthless, downright dangerous. and I am a fool to use it.

Then you are calling our founding fathers are fools who started the greatest country on earth. Steve, are you an American?

Deacon Ron Gray
Here's one of our founding fathers Ron.

9 The unity of Government, which constitutes you one people, is also now dear to you. It is justly so; for it is a main pillar in the edifice of your real independence, the support of your tranquillity at home, your peace abroad; of your safety; of your prosperity; of that very Liberty, which you so highly prize. But as it is easy to foresee, that, from different causes and from different quarters, much pains will be taken, many artifices employed, to weaken in your minds the conviction of this truth; as this is the point in your political fortress against which the batteries of internal and external enemies will be most constantly and actively (though often covertly and insidiously) directed, it is of infinite moment, that you should properly estimate the immense value of your national Union to your collective and individual happiness; that you should cherish a cordial, habitual, and immovable attachment to it; accustoming yourselves to think and speak of it as of the Palladium of your political safety and prosperity; watching for its preservation with jealous anxiety; discountenancing whatever may suggest even a suspicion, that it can in any event be abandoned; and indignantly frowning upon the first dawning of every attempt to alienate any portion of our country from the rest, or to enfeeble the sacred ties which now link together the various parts.

Now in your words what was just said, Break it down for me?


Friday, January 18th 2019 at 4:16PM
Deacon Ron Gray
Let's see if we can break it down Ron.

9 The unity of Government, which constitutes you one people, is also now dear to you.

The unity of Government makes us one people and so is valued by us. Correct?

Friday, January 18th 2019 at 7:16PM

Then you are not calling our founding fathers are fools who started the greatest country on earth, which one is it?

Steve, are you an American?
Friday, January 18th 2019 at 7:43PM
Deacon Ron Gray
I didn't say that Ron, you did. What I said is your belief in the concept of bipartisan is foolish. Bipartisan is why we do not have a unity of Government.

Friday, January 18th 2019 at 8:29PM
Steve Williams
If you believe that, then you will see grid lock when you can't get 60 votes or when Mitch won't bring a bill to the senate for a vote without permission from the President.


Friday, January 18th 2019 at 9:18PM
Deacon Ron Gray
All of that Ron is only possible because there are only two parties, i.e. bipartisan. The biggest share of voters are nonpartisan but you people just ignore us and trash the government. You work overtime to make sure there is no unity of government.

Have you seen Mitch McConnell this week, last week Steve?

You do know who Mitch McConnell is, don't ?

I saw him this past week Ron. Tuesday I think.

Senator McConnell on Government Shutdown

On day 26 of a government shutdown over President Trump’s demand for a U.S.-Mexico border wall, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is willing to spend only $1 on a border wall, showing she does take border security seriously.

YOU REPLY: I saw him this past week Ron. Tuesday I think.

MY REPLY! Tuesday you THINK!
s Donald Trump’s partial government shutdown over border security stretches into its fourth week, officially becoming the longest shutdown in U.S. history, Republican leader Mitch McConnell is nowhere to be found.

The Senate majority leader was not in Washington D.C. on Friday as lawmakers adjourned for the weekend after voting to give federal workers back pay whenever the government reopens. McConnell skipped his customary remarks on the Senate floor, instead heading home to Kentucky.

YOUR WORDS: I saw him this past week Ron. Tuesday I think.

MY REPLY: Where did you see him at Steve? Was it in Washington D.C.?



Saturday, January 19th 2019 at 5:09PM
Deacon Ron Gray
I gave you the link Ron. Mitch was here on Wednesday AND Thursday. He and the President came to an agreement that Mitch will bring to the floor next week. The Bridge Act I think they're calling it.

Saturday, January 19th 2019 at 5:32PM
Steve Williams
"The solution to the problem is for the President of the United States [to] reach an agreement with the Democratic majority in the House, and enough Democrats in the Senate to prevent an agreement. There's no way around that," said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Now Mitch knows that he is protecting Trump by not letting those passed House Bills to get on the floor here in the Senate.


Saturday, January 19th 2019 at 6:07PM
Deacon Ron Gray
The Senate is the UPPER chamber Ron. Mitch and Trump are working from the top down and the bottom feeders in the House can either come together with the Senate, or let the pain of the American people, the people they are sworn to represent, continue.

Saturday, January 19th 2019 at 8:24PM
Steve Williams
No Steve, The Executive Branch of The Government Carries out laws (president, vice president, Cabinet, most federal agencies)

Legislative—Makes laws (Congress—House of Representatives and Senate)

Now Mitch has given Trump the power over the Senate by his actions not to bring those bills to the floor that the House have passed to reopen the government. Now if Mitch was doing his job, he should let those bills have a up or down vote. Now those bills that are passed and go to the president for signing, now if Trump uses his veto power, then you will see where the bucks stops.

I still can't get over Trump's statement ‘The buck stops with everybody’ this is the first U.S. President don't wanted to take credit for this Government- shut down. WOW!!!!




Saturday, January 19th 2019 at 9:06PM
Deacon Ron Gray
Mitch has a better bill to bring to the floor Ron. The House passed bills are toast.

Saturday, January 19th 2019 at 9:21PM
Steve Williams
And I suggest Ron you take some time to review Article 2.

Saturday, January 19th 2019 at 9:23PM
Steve Williams
He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper;

Saturday, January 19th 2019 at 9:31PM
Steve Williams
What do this statement has to do with what Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is doing?
