I swear, wasn’t it less than a week ago when we were all running around with our hair on fire because the press was reporting that Trump was selling us out on compromises with Democrats on illegal immigration?
Seriously, the popular media in America when it comes to anything political is as unreliable as Pravda.
Prospects for a bipartisan agreement to protect young immigrants from deportation and prevent a government shutdown later this week faded Sunday as key lawmakers traded sharp accusations and President Trump said hopes for a deal were “probably dead.”
Negotiators spent last week seeking a solution that would shield young immigrants brought illegally to the United States as children, including the roughly 800,000 who secured work permits under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program created under President Barack Obama.
But a tentative deal worked out Thursday by a small bipartisan group of senators crumbled in an Oval Office meeting in which, according to multiple people involved, an angry Trump asked them why the United States should accept immigrants from “shithole countries” such as Haiti, El Salvador and African nations over those from European countries such as Norway.
