1. Chucky has again over played his hand on DACA and Dreamers. How? Simple. He wanted an up and down vote on a fix for DACA and Dreamers from @GOP and @SenateMajLdr. Chucky thinks it is good and will force @GOP to do or he will have justification for #SchumerShutdown number 2.
2. However, what Chucky doesn't understand is that the up and down vote is a two edged sword. By trying to commit @GOP and @SenateMajLdr to this, it also binds Dems to allow the up and down vote to proceed. This means if a bill is proposed, NO FILIBUSTER will take place.
3. Dems thus have to allow vote on a bill or they will have violated the agreement and the justification for #SchumerShutdown number 2 is gone and optics even worse than last shutdown.
4. So, now what @realDonaldTrump @GOP @SpeakerRyan @SenateMajLdr need to do is to prepare a COMPREHENSIVE top to bottom immigration reform bill and to bring to floor for vote. Read thread below for what should be in it.
5. The COMPREHENSIVE reform bill will contain a DACA and Dreamers fix, it's comprehensive after all, so Dems won't be able to filibuster. It will give legal status and keep here. So, filibuster would be seen as bad faith by Dems and Chucky.
6. Furthermore, if a comprehensive immigration bill was proposed, Americans would like it to end the nonsense. Dems stuck then deciding to appease Far Left Radical portion of base by filibuster, which will turn off more moderate Dems and Independents.
7. Question is, does @realDonaldTrump @GOP @SpeakerRyan @SenateMajLdr have the vision to advantage of a once in a lifetime opportunity to bring a comprehensive immigration reform bill to the Senate floor with possibly no filibuster? This would fire up Repubs, show leadership and
8. Demoralize Dems since they really don't like or want true immigration reform. Again, read entire thread below for what needs to be in it.
9. ADDENDUM: Here is the previous link mentioned in 8.
10. ADDENDUM 2: Remember this and good to remind illegal aliens of the fact that Obama and Dems had complete control of government, with a filibuster proof super majority in Senate and they did NOTHING on immigration reform at all. NOTHING. Didn't even raise it.
11. ADDENDUM 2: We know that our immigration laws are all over the place. So why do Dems only talk about DACA and Dreamers? Why don't they push comprehensive immigration reform? Simple: Current immigration laws are ineffective at stopping illegal immigration & letting big #s in
