Politico is reporting Wednesday evening that Senate Democrats are willing to drop relief for DREAMers from long-term budget talks.
Budget breakthrough in reach, as Senate Dems drop Dreamer demand
— POLITICO (@politico) January 25, 2018
Senate Democrats are willing to drop their demand that relief for Dreamers be tied to any long-term budget agreement — a potential breakthrough on spending talks, but one that could face opposition from their House counterparts.
“We’re viewing [immigration and spending] on separate terms because they are on separate paths,” Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said Tuesday.
Yes, immigration policy and funding the government are two different paths. It seems even Durbin gets it, although Democrats aren’t happy hearing about it.

Hey, don’t say “spineless” … that’s offensive to people without spines.
And, the spinal collapse is complete. The Senate Dems abandon the DREAMers. Just. Like. That. https://t.co/FgLUCRnG7P

Dems have no balls. If the Democrat Senators drop #DACA support, they will find it harder to keep their seats in Nov, let alone win more. /cc: @KamalaHarris @SenFeinstein @SenSchumer https://t.co/vJgIFtfqgZ

Wow, some people aren’t happy with the Senate Democrats right now.
