Border Security: Election-Year Pact and Steve Scalise
border security: The standoff left serious doubt whether the two parties could reach an election-year pact to protect hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation, sharpen border security and take other steps to curb immigration, according to The Chronicle Herald. The two parties had not even settled on a deadline for an agreement a bad sign in an institution that rarely acts unless under pressure. The reaction to Trump's high-profile overture suggested both parties were settling into a protracted tug-of-war. If the deadline is Feb. 8, we're not going to make it, No. 2 House Democratic leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland said Wednesday, noting a looming deadline for approving government funding to avoid another shutdown. Steve Scalise, R-La., the House GOP vote counter, said in an interview Tuesday. It's going to take work for us to build a consensus, Rep. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
