Are the Dems about to get rolled on DACA?


I’m no expert but this doesn’t sound great:

Congressional leaders unveiled a sweeping budget deal Wednesday that would add more than $500 billion in federal spending over the next two years, delivering the military funding boost demanded by President Trump alongside the increase in domestic programs sought by Democrats.

With a government shutdown deadline coming early Friday morning, the accord holds the promise to break a months-long partisan standoff centered on federal spending, though roadblocks remain. . .

In one late-developing wrinkle, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Wednesday that she and “a large number” of fellow Democrats will oppose a spending deal to keep the government open unless she is guaranteed a vote on immigration legislation.

The move came amid rising fury from House liberals and immigration activists as congressional leaders appeared on the cusp of announcing a massive two-year budget deal without a fix for “dreamers,” young undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children.

Although it was not immediately clear how many Democrats would follow Pelosi’s lead, her announcement raised new uncertainty about whether congressional leaders would have the votes for passage.

Fire away.
