Nancy Pelosi remains true to form in her refusal to move on securing America’s wide-open borders despite President Trump’s goodwill gesture in delaying immigration raids for two weeks-at their request. President Trump tweeted: “I want to give the Democrats every last chance to quickly negotiate simple changes to Asylum and Loopholes. This will fix the Southern Border, together with the help that Mexico is now giving us. Probably won’t happen, but worth a try. Two weeks and big Deportation begins!” According to Representative Greg Steube (R-FL), Speaker Nancy Pelosi said the president’s call for cooperation to address needed changes to the abused asylum process and loopholes is “dead on arrival.” Once again, Democrats’ intransigence on border security is playing right into Republican hands for 2020, and they’re clearly oblivious. Fine by us.

Rep. Greg Steube R-Fla., said Sunday that House Democrats are unlikely to work with President Trump on immigration and won’t meet the Trump’s deadline to solve the crisis on the Mexico border.
Trump originally announced Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids would start in several major cities with the goal of apprehending thousands of illegal immigrants, but called off the operation at the last minute at the request of congressional Democrats. He then said Saturday he’d give Congress two weeks to come up with a solution before giving ICE the green light to proceed.
“I was in the Rose Garden with the president when he announced his immigration plan and then hours later Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi said it’s dead on arrival,” Steube said Sunday on “America’s News HQ.”
