There isn’t much going on in Washington.
Congress is out of session until February 26. We’re done on immigration for February:
“Congress is poised to kick a heated immigration fight into overtime, with no clear path forward.
With the Senate rejecting four proposals — including President Trump’s preferred plan and a key bipartisan deal — and no viable backup plan in sight, lawmakers are poised to hit pause on the issue until at least next month as they go back to the drawing board. …
“I don’t know when it’s going to be. Obviously we’re going to have to deal with the DACA issue probably on the [omnibus] because of what has happened … and extend it,” Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) told reporters, referring to the spending bill.
He added that he expected the mammoth spending bill could include a three-year extension of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, but that it “may be longer.”
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), the No. 2 Senate Republican, also wouldn’t rule out sticking a short-term extension paired with some border security funding in the omnibus. …”
“The Speaker said he’s going to address this issue,” Hoyer said. “He’s got four legislative days left to do that before the fifth of March, and he hasn’t done anything.”
There is talk now of kicking the can down the road by temporarily extending DACA until after the 2020 election. There is no guarantee they will even pass that though. Instead, Congress is focused on doing nothing and running out the clock until the 2018 election cycle kicks into full swing this summer. Oh BTW … there is still no border wall or any sign one will be built on the horizon.
