    Mike Johnson appears to be the secret love child of Leonard Leo and Ginny Thomas, conceived in the woods at midnight during a Christian Nationalist Coven ceremony involving burning requisite totems in a raging campfire.  Someone must have said this somewhere - so, by Republican Cartel logic, it must be true.

    Mike Johnson, as most House members of the Republican Cartel, is incapable of breaking with the goal of formulating a constant stream of disinformation to enrage their MAGA branch’s conspiracy laden base. 

    Johnson reminds me a lot of that homeless drug addict who had a remarkably good speaking voice that people tried to rehabilitate a few years back. Many tried to reform this drug addled homeless man and failed. 

    It appears that Johnson also, cannot overcome his Christian Nationalist’s idolatry of the trump to do what is best for the nation - and just stop the formulated disinformation, warrantless impeachment endeavors and obstructionism for the political expediency of demeaning the Cartel’s political arch-enemies. 

    This BS would stop if Mike Johnson could put the practice of being an actual Christian before his ambitions tied to being a Christian Nationalist and a trump idolator.

    Better idea: instead of trying to take down the Biden administration, why not DO YOUR JOB?

     

    It is the responsibility of CONGRESS to put in place effective immigration laws. Day one, Biden had a plan! And, here we are with Republicans fiddly f*ing doing nothing, but blame Biden, impeach Mayorkis, and obstruct!  

    If you are upset about immigration, you need to look at Republicans. They are the reason for the failure at the border  

     

    DAY ONE IMMIGRATION BILL: U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021
    Background
    On his first day in office, President Biden sent the Biden-Harris immigration reform bill to Congress, outlining his transformative vision and commitment to building a 21st century immigration system that welcomes immigrants and refugees. While the legislative text has not been made publicly available, the White House released a fact sheet revealing key provisions of the bill, known as the U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021. The members of Congress leading the introduction of the Biden-Harris immigration bill are Rep. Linda Sánchez (D-CA) in the House and Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) in the Senate.

    Select Key Provisions
    In a dramatic shift away from the prior administration’s harsh immigration rhetoric, the U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021 promotes inclusion. The bill removes the word “alien” from immigration law and replaces it with “noncitizen.” This bill is a welcome departure from the racism and xenophobia of the Trump era and provides funding to promote integration and inclusion, increasing English-language instruction, and providing assistance to individuals seeking to become U.S. citizens.

    Core to this bill is the creation of new pathways to U.S. citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants who live, work, and are an essential part of the United States. Undocumented individuals are permitted to initially apply for temporary lawful status with the ability to apply for lawful permanent residence after five years, whereas DACA recipients, people with temporary protected status (TPS), and farm workers are eligible to apply for lawful permanent residence immediately. After three years, qualifying lawful permanent residents under this bill are permitted to apply for citizenship.

    According to the outline, the bill also:

    Includes provisions from the NO BAN Act, which, among other things, seeks to prevent any president from issuing future bans such as the discriminatory Muslim and African bans — bans the Biden administration rescinded on Day One — by limiting dangerously overbroad executive authority to suspend people from entering the U.S.
    Aims to reduce the ballooning immigration court backlog by improving technology and expanding training for immigration judges. In an effort to make immigration court proceedings more fair, the bill provides immigration judges with discretion to review cases and grant relief to certain individuals. The bill also authorizes funding for legal orientation programs and counsel for children and vulnerable individuals.
    Supports asylum-seekers by eliminating the one-year filing deadline for asylum claims and allocating additional funding to reduce asylum application backlogs.
    Protects vulnerable populations by raising the annual cap of U visas from 10,000 to 30,000.
    Removes barriers to family-based immigration, repealing the three- and ten-year bars, as well as the permanent bar on admission for individuals unlawfully present in the United States from adjusting to lawful status.
    Seeks to reduce lengthy visa backlogs by recapturing immigrant visas lost to bureaucratic delays.
    Improves protections for immigrant workers, ensuring that victims of serious labor violations are afforded an opportunity to apply for relief from deportation without fear of retaliation.
    Creates a $4 billion four-year interagency plan that would provide assistance to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to address the underlying causes of migration, and creates new systems for Central Americans to initiate the process — from within their countries — of seeking protection and resettlement to the United States or other partner countries.
    Calls for the deployment of improved technologies at U.S. ports of entry and in between ports of entry. While the bill’s fact sheet mentions that the DHS inspector general is authorized to conduct oversight of this technology, the fact sheet does not address to what extent it will include robust privacy laws to prevent the sharing of data between local, state, federal, and foreign agencies for use in immigration enforcement. Mass data collection of personal information and the storage of sensitive information is increasingly vulnerable to misuse by government employees and foreign actors.
    The fact sheet does not specifically address immigrants’ access to health care and nutrition supports for those obtaining lawful immigration status under this bill. Current law denies many types of immigrants access to such programs, leading to harmful effects that have been profoundly exacerbated during the COVID-19 pandemic, in particular because of the high number of immigrants who are essential workers. Given the importance of addressing these access barriers, we will closely analyze and advocate for immigrant-inclusive proposals in this and other legislation.

    Lying to Congress should be an impeachable offense.  Being totally incompetent may not reach a level of impeachable offense but if the Secretary had any self respect he would resign.  I agree he is just a puppet of President Biden but he should have some self respect, which he does not.  Why Democrats would let millions of "illegal" immigrants, of which also include gang members is a travesty.

    The split screen of the House failing to impeach Mayorkas while the Senate Republicans were melting down over refusal to pass a bill they wrote was just classic Republican dysfunction and reminds us why we should never give them the chance to govern again. 

    The Republicans had a once-in-generations chance to fix the border and obtain far too many concessions for Democrats like me to love, but instead of taking the win, they'd rather blame others and do nothing so that the border can stay as it is for another year just to please their dictator Donald. 

    I hope Johnson continues to fail at leadership, I hope Biden and the Democrats run on having tried to fix the border, and I hope Donald continues ruining that party by turning them all against each other.

    This is what the GOP has wrought.

    We are being invaded. 10 million so far. We need a secure border. Cartels are in control, and our country is allowing it, and subsequently funding them. I could go on.

    Senate dismissed Mayorkas impeachment trial for not meeting the standards of high crimes and misdemeanors.

    Ironically Senate Republics called the dismissal unprecedented when in fact impeaching a cabinet member over policy disputes and refusing to provide legislation is what is unprecedented.

    "Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) said the charges against Mayorkas failed to meet the high standards for removal. In a speech on the Senate floor, he called it “the least legitimate, least substantive and most politicized impeachment trial ever.”

    "Schumer called a vote on declaring that the first of two articles of impeachment—which alleged that Mayorkas has willfully refused to comply with federal immigration laws—was unconstitutional. That vote was successful, passing 51-48 with Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska voting present, effectively dismissing the article."

    "The second article alleged a breach of public trust, saying Mayorkas made false statements about the state of the border. That article was defeated in a 51-49 vote. The Senate then voted 51-49 to end the trial, wrapping up the proceedings without any direct vote on acquitting or convicting Mayorkas."

    "Senate Republicans didn’t have the votes needed to convict Mayorkas, which required the support of two-thirds of senators present."

    "More than 40 Senate Republicans signed a letter last week in which they said dismissing the impeachment would be unprecedented."

    “Impeachment should never, never be used to settle policy disagreements,” Schumer said. He said it would set a bad precedent that could lead the House to turn to impeachment every time lawmakers disapprove of a policy."

    "Mayorkas was the first sitting cabinet official to be impeached. Secretary of War William Belknap resigned just ahead of his impeachment vote in 1876, and he was acquitted in the Senate in the midst of questions about whether Congress had jurisdiction to impeach a private citizen."

    Far Right-Wing Republicans have lost their minds.

    Instead of governing they are wasting taxpayer money, as well as talent (if they actually have any) and time.

    The Republican Party must at least try to reform itself.

    Impeachment is an absolutely ridiculous activity considering the fact the secretary committed no impeachable offense.  Republicans know the impeachment is futile but they are pushing it because of King Donald Trump.

      
    Trump tried to remain in power!!  He's no George Washington because he wants to be king.

    Fake shit in D.C. about Immigration, BUT ...

    Gov. abbortt (sp?😂) RIPPING OFF Texans by shipping immigrants to 'Blue' states by claiming "bigly" donations he has requested on his website wouldn't cost TX citizens anything!

    LIAR, LIAR, LIAR, Pants On 🔥!

    "Texas governor predicted donations would pay for busing migrants out of state. He’s collected less than 1% of that cost"

    https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2024/03/15/politics/texas-busing-migrants-donations-invs


    From the article...

    "Texas Gov. Greg Abbott boasted shortly after he began soliciting private donations for his controversial migrant busing program that there would likely “be no cost to the state” given the outpouring of support from concerned citizens across the country. 

    But after nearly two years of fundraising to offset the program’s costs, Abbott’s operation has collected less than half of 1% of the roughly $150 million spent on busing migrants to sanctuary cities, according to a review of state records. And CNN found that the largest donation – $900,000 – never made it into the state’s coffers, either because it was a mistake or a prank."

    More ...

    "The data provided by the state reflected donations submitted online or by mail through check, credit card or bank transfer, not funds actually received by the state — meaning the data could contain donations that were rejected by banks and credit companies during processing. Reporters tried to reach the woman behind the supposed $900,000 donation, but they could not locate the person with the name provided, and the phone number submitted to state officials was disconnected.

    Abbott’s office published a running tally online to show how willing people were to support his program. After the $900,000 contribution was submitted online in September, the website showed that donations had reached more than $1.3 million, but in December, the tally was readjusted – dropping back down to around $460,000.

    CNN also spoke with another donor listed in the data who confirmed he did not make the $2,000 donation listed under his name."

    End (emphasis mine) ...

    Just more Republican power play.  They had a chance to refine the immigration laws and they voted against it. Why?  To continue to use it as a political argument.  Republicans do not fix anything, they destroy.

    Instead of spending so much time on non-issues, I wish the House would "do their jobs" and produce legislation.

    And by the way, President Biden is the current President of the USA. So why are members of Congress getting their marching orders from Citizen T ???
