    all the provisions not related to the border once it gets the full funding requested, you're delusional.

    This is not about immigration reform.  This is about trying to get hispanic support for the GOP when they have no intention, nor expectation of getting full legislation passed.  They can now point to this committee and say, "See, we tried to do something, we actually do like brown people."

    Calling BS on their intent.

    If you can't tell who the sucker is at the card table, guess what?

      walk back his half baked proposals in order to get to benefit from this. This is not his first turn around the block since the election and this one and his first turn don't agree on much, which means he will be needed a really good explanation for the switch which the Teas will accept.

        nobody is going to give a shit that he was on a "committee" that was subject to partisan give and take - just builds his street cred as being a consensus builder or some other rot.

        this is a poison pill POS where everyone is trying to headfake each other out.

        This is shit garbage that Democrats are idiots for even playing along.
