White House senior adviser Jared Kushner pitched President Donald Trump's Cabinet members Tuesday on a 600-page immigration proposal that he and some congressional Republicans are urging their colleagues to consider before Congress leaves Washington for its monthlong August recess.

Interesting timing given everything that is going on, my guess is that they want this hanging out there while members of Congress are not in session to snipe at it.

"Dozens of immigration groups from across the ideological spectrum were also brought in for listening sessions earlier this year to offer feedback on the plan."

That sounds fair.

I'm glad the "send them to the camps!" sane, rational adults were heard; too bad it came at the cost of having to suffer the "path towards citizenship" shrieking mongoloid children.

... White House senior adviser Jared Kushner pitched President Donald Trump's Cabinet members Tuesday on a 600-page immigration proposal that he and some congressional Republicans are urging their colleagues to consider ...

Will this effort have the same results as that in June 2018 when the Trump admin worked with the Republican Congress to hammer out a bill that contained the four pillars that Pres trump insisted upon?

After going through all that, Pres Trump said he wouldn't sign it.

Maybe the involvement of Mr Kushner, fresh off his resounding success in the Middle East, is the charm that's needed.

Here's some background on the Four Pillars...

Trump just said he "certainly wouldn't sign" an immigration bill his White House helped write (June 2018)

...Members of President Trump's White House -- including immigration hardliners like Stephen Miller -- have been hard at work with Republicans in the House of Representatives on crafting a "compromise" immigration bill for the House to vote on next week.

Trump himself may just have torpedoed it....

The "more moderate" bill was explicitly designed to adhere to the "four pillars" that Trump mandated in January be a part of any immigration deal: money for the "wall" he wants to build on the US-Mexico border; elimination of the diversity visa lottery; curbing family-based immigration (which the Trump administration refers to as "chain migration"); and a way for the immigrants currently facing the loss of their protections under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to apply for formal legal status in the US....

Note, at the time, both Houses of Congress were Republican controlled.

A leaked copy of the Kushner Plan includes the following:
--All females rated at "9" or better on an internationally-recognized scale for physical beauty are automatically allowed entry, and must allow entry
--Those who can already cut fairways, rake bunkers, make beds and clean dishes are allowed entry for a trial period, wherein they are given jobs in the new "Trump Employment Program", at the recognized fair and balanced wage of $3.10 per hour (uniforms and housing extra). No backtalk or rabble-rousing permitted
--those with darker skin, body odor or a tendency to want to vote are disallowed
--non-English speakers must return to their home countries and obtain exit visas from their nearest Trump hotel or condo development, and present them at the border, upon attempts to enter. Visas are $375 and are valid for 15 minutes

Dems want 1 of 2 things as they are our only possibilities with immigration. We either 1) let everyone across the border and spend billions and billions more money creating luxury facilities for them to live in while they wait for asylum, citizenship, etc. or 2) do not enforce borders or citizenship and at all and just let everyone across the border and make them American citizens.

There are no other options based on the problems Dems say we face. Now, whether or not they are good or bad is not what I care about. What I care about is that they absolute REFUSE to accept that either option creates problems that have to be addressed. No, they aren't all criminals, but some are. What do you do about that? We already overspend and our country's debt and deficit are a problem, so adding hundreds of billions more to cater to those who cross the border is a problem, yet Dems apparently don't think that is a problem. Not all of them mooch or game the system, but many do. What are we going to do about that? I mean, the list of problems those options present is lengthy. So while Trump's wall seems abrupt and counter-intuitive to what our nation stands for, it does stop most of those issues or at least lessens them to be minor inconveniences. But most of the problems the wall brings up are not problems that impact America's bottom line or standards of living. So we are fighting either problems with our country's standard of living or problems with our country's ideologies. And neither side has really shown they care to address the problems their solution introduces...they just ignore them and say that their solution is perfect.

Are you intentionally trying to play dumb? That's what Dems want? Says who? This has been going on for 100 years and suddenly Trumps method of dealing with it is the only way? The numbers are out there - bottom line undocumented are a net benefit to this country by a large margin. I don't know why you want to ignore that. You make it sound like significant numbers are here to mooch and murder - they aren't. Most of these people have more ethics than the vast majority of Americans. Most are even more Christian than your average GOPer.

I think there needs to be controls in place and a better plan that what has been in place but the GOP doesn't want one that works. They really don't - they rely on these people and want to keep them under control but they don't want something fair that would keep wages up... And to be honest these people work some terrible jobs that Americans won't work.

Ivanka, Donald, Netanyahu and Melania loved the plan. But all the lifelong professionals keep asking WTF are you and WTF are you doing here? Don't you belong in prison like your Dad?

Trump and his hemorrhoid-like •••clown son-n-law are the problem. No policy experience whatsoever, we are being led by the 1% trained monkeys (no offense to simians intended) or less. History has many solutions to offer, the Kennedy Bothers, the Romanovs, to name a few. Go history!

#7 - First paragraph is pure cow-flop.
The second paragraph is convoluted weak sauce to justify your first.

Suggestion: Try commenting while sober or not stoned for less bewildering cow-flop?

The only thing Greasy weasel Jared should be pitching is a baseball on the Prison baseball team.
Though he looks more like a "catcher" to me.

#12 - Hoping for catcher.
