  1. Watch this says:

    “Trump’s man on the Hill tries not to make promises he can’t keep on immigration : White House legislative director Marc Short finds himself playing mediator, not dealmaker, as Congress turns to its next big legislative challenge.” (Politico 2/10/18) https://www.politico.com/story/2018/02/10/immigration-legislation-house-marc-short-398994 See also “McConnell’s immigration gamble : The Senate majority leader is unleashing a free-for-all debate over Dreamers — and his endgame is a mystery.” (2/12/18) https://www.politico.com/story/2018/02/12/mitch-mcconnell-dreamers-immigration-401209

  2. Bait & Switch says:

    “Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who promised what was expected to be a free-for-all immigration debate, is keeping his hand firmly on the wheel.” http://thehill.com/homenews/senate/373744-mcconnell-keeps-firm-grip-on-immigration-debate “The Senate is indeed tackling immigration, but McConnell on Tuesday indicated the debate will conclude at the end of this week. So unless there is a bipartisan breakthrough over the next 48-72 hours on an issue Congress has tried to resolve for more than a decade, immigration reform will once again fall short. By limiting the debate to a few days and expressing his preference for a GOP proposal that mirrors President Trump’s four-point immigration plan — which doesn’t have the votes to pass — McConnell has significantly influenced the process in the upper chamber.”
