Senators John McCain and Chris Coons seem to have worked together in a bipartisan effort to come up with an immigration bill.
That doesn’t include any funding for the border wall.

From The Hill:
Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Christopher Coons (D-Del.) will introduce immigration legislation on Monday in an effort to reach a budget deal before the federal government’s current funding runs out on Friday, The Wall Street Journal reported.
The bipartisan piece of legislation provides recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, commonly known as “Dreamers,” an opportunity for citizenship while ordering a study to figure out what border security measures are needed, according to the Journal.
DACA aimed to protect from deportation certain immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally when they were children.
Senate aides told the Journal that the plan would provide people who have resided in the U.S. since Dec. 31, 2013, with legal status and a path to citizenship.
You’d think by now they’d understand no immigration reform will pass without border wall funding.
Talk about a non-starter. https://t.co/czCxWLjJwP

Immigration reform MUST include funding for and securing the border.
Period the end.
Whatever respect I had for McCain has evaporated in the last few months – helluva way to ‘go out’

This effort by the Maverick is less than impressive.
McCain’s legacy: Hero of the Left.
