House Republicans back bipartisan bill aiding young immigrants

They want Trump to extend expulsion shield for 750,000 people

A group of House Republicans is pushing President-elect Donald Trump to keep in place Obama administration protections for about 750,000 young illegal immigrants, joining with Democrats on legislation to extend a shield on their deportations for another three years.

The legislation, introduced Friday, is a companion to a Senate measure advanced by Democrat Dick Durbin of Illinois and Republican Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. Both bills signal bipartisan unrest over Trump’s campaign pledge to reverse President Barack Obama’s executive orders on deportations, which include protections for young adults brought to the U.S. by their parents when they were children.

Keep pushing the meme that some laws are not to be obeyed and pretty soon, none of them will be. Why should I when they don't have to? There are plenty of laws I don't like, so I think I'll be as selective as they are when it comes to following them.

Let your Congressman and Representatives know that our veterans and our millions of economically disadvantaged (low wage/jobless) American citizens' needs should come before illegals--and many have paid taxes for decades.

Charity should begin at home.

They like giving away the store. :angry: We need to flood their phones and email boxes. Each person who makes an effort... is counted as if 11K more people feel the same way. (It's a formula CONgress uses to gauge public opinion.) So, yeh, we DO count.
