Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, March 20, 2018

Democratic leaders are backing off of their demand that "Dreamer" protections be a part of the 2018 budget negotiations. While House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other Democratic leaders had hinged their support for last month's budget caps deal on a commitment from Republicans to consider legislation salvaging the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, they've signaled they won't hold a similar line heading into next week's expected vote on an omnibus spending bill.

The apparent change in strategy has angered immigrant rights advocates in and out of Congress, who want the minority Democrats to use their rare leverage on the omnibus government funding package -- among the last must-pass bills of the year -- to secure protections for the hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who came to the country illegally as children.

No doubt, but with comfortable leads at the polls among independents they need to dial back on the far left tactics and hew to the middle.

don't worry, if they start slipping in the polls they will rally the base yet again.

Now that is funny........... Illegals going ballistic because they aren't made legal. Never mind most have been here for 25+ years and have never applied for citizenship.

The only funny part is that it isn't actually happening. JeffJ should lay off the Hannity.

If they were going ballistic, what happened in Pennsylvania?

I don't watch or listen to Hannity. I don't watch cable news nor do I listen to RW talk radio.

My comment was based upon how the base reacted when Democrats ended the government shutdown after 2 days.
