Dat geldt net zo goed voor de Dems. Dat het Democratische voorstel meer steun krijgt dan het Republikeinse voorstel lijkt me geen goed teken voor het Witte Huis.quote:
Het voorstel van de GOP was natuurlijk volkomen lachwekkend. Daar kon bijna geen Democraat met droge ogen voor stemmen.quote:

Volgens Sarah Sanders kan Trump akkoord gaan met een 3 week CR in ruil voor een "down payment" voor de wall. Wat een down payment in vredesnaam mag betekenen in deze is mij niet helemaal helder. De 5,7 miljard was sowieso al nooit genoeg geweest voor een hele muur.

The US will begin sending some legal asylum seekers back to Mexico on Fridaytwitter:
quote:The Trump administration is about to implement its biggest change to asylum policy yet.
Starting on Friday, Central Americans who attempt to enter the US without papers at the port of entry at San Ysidro — the most popular official border crossing for migrants seeking asylum in the United States — are going to be turned back to Mexico while their cases are pending.
The shift was initially reported by Reuters, citing a Mexican official. A DHS official confirmed the plan to Vox.
The policy change means that people who are trying to exercise their legal right to seek asylum will be barred from the US for as much as a year while they wait for their claim to come before a judge. It is the most sweeping development in Trump’s ongoing crackdown on asylum seekers, who are largely from Central America, and disproportionately children and families.
The Trump administration announced its plans to implement the new policy, which it calls the “Migration Protection Protocols” but was known last fall as the “Remain in Mexico” agreement, in a House hearing in December. But its implementation was kept under wraps as the US continued to negotiate with the Mexican government, and as the government shutdown took attention in Washington.
While a DHS official confirmed some details of the plan to Vox, it’s still not clear how Mexico will deal with migrants while they wait for their court dates in the US.
The policy will almost certainly be subject to a federal lawsuit, as other Trump efforts to crack down on immigration without Congress have been. But it will go into effect (at least in San Ysidro) before any lawsuit is filed, and advocates tell Vox they may wait to see how it is being implemented before they sue to stop it.
And because of an ambiguous clause in the Immigration and Nationality Act, it’s entirely possible that the policy will be upheld in court.SPOILER“The fundamental cause of the trouble in the modern world today is that the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt.”— Bertrand Russell

quote:Jared Kushner's application for a top secret clearance was rejected by two career White House security specialists after an FBI background check raised concerns about potential foreign influence on him — but their supervisor overruled the recommendation and approved the clearance, two sources familiar with the matter told NBC News.
The official, Carl Kline, is a former Pentagon employee who was installed as director of the personnel security office in the Executive Office of the President in May 2017. Kushner's was one of at least 30 cases in which Kline overruled career security experts and approved a top secret clearance for incoming Trump officials despite unfavorable information, the two sources said. They said the number of rejections that were overruled was unprecedented — it had happened only once in the three years preceding Kline's arrival.
The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the information, said the Trump White House attracted many people with untraditional backgrounds who had complicated financial and personal histories, some of which raised red flags.
Kushner's FBI background check identified questions about his family's business, his foreign contacts, his foreign travel and meetings he had during the campaign, the sources said, declining to be more specific.SPOILER“The fundamental cause of the trouble in the modern world today is that the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt.”— Bertrand Russell
