This afternoon the Senate is turning to DACA and immigration, beginning with a “motion to proceed” vote. The burden is on Republicans to fix the mess that Donald Trump made on #DACA, as a majority of Americans want them to. [Thread]
Remember, we got here because Donald Trump ended the DACA program back in Sept. And 20,000 DACA recipients have already lost their protections as a result. He then rejected a bipartisan agreement reached by @SenatorDurbin and @LindseyGrahamSC, because it wasn’t racist enough.
So here we are — in an open debate on immigration with a Republican-controlled Congress. If you care about immigrants and #Dreamers, you should be worried. And while we all want relief for Dreamers, we can’t and won’t take just any deal.

As a City Councilmember in Philly, I’ve been thinking a lot about tonight’s #SOTU. Here’s what I wish I would see in 45’s address tonight (although I’m not holding my breath). @LocalProgress /1
1st Economic Justice: Philly is the poorest large city in the US and PA’s $7.25 minimum wage is the lowest in the region. We have over 100K hourly workers in the city alone. /2
Our City Council instituted a 21st Century living wage, passed pay equity/anti-wage theft laws, and we’re holding hearings on #FairWorkweekPHL to address unpredictable hours and help workers and families. /3

BREAKING: New poll of 12 Senate battleground states Trump, GOP will pay price in case of government shutdown. Public wants protections for Dreamers in funding bill (81%); rejects wall (57%). GOP playing with fire. 1/
This poll is a needle aimed directly at the GOP's bubble. Heartland wants Dream.

Commissioned by @MoveOn @CAPAction & @SEIU, pollster @geoffgarin surveyed voters in 12 states in which Dems are up in '18 that, on average, Trump won by 11%: FL IN MI MN MO MT ND OH PA VA WV & WI.
800 poll respondents, selected to match the 2016: 52% voted for Trump, 41% for Hillary. (If electorate is less Trump-friendly in 2018, the poll is actually skewed to the *right.*) 67 voters per state.

*This* sample says, 42-31, if the gov shuts down, it's Trump/GOP's fault.
