So, the Political Gamesmanship Continues...

As a continuation on the preceding post, particularly on comments therein, what is your take on the following short excerpt taken from THE HILL. 
President Trump bashed a bipartisan immigration proposal on Wednesday, raising fresh doubts about Congress’s ability to strike a deal to save protections for young immigrants living illegally in the U.S.

In an interview with Reuters, Trump called the Senate proposal “horrible” on border security and “very, very weak” on reforms to the legal immigration system.

“It’s the opposite of what I campaigned for,” Trump said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Wednesday he would not put an immigration bill on the floor for a vote until Trump declares what proposal he supports.

"I'm looking for something President Trump supports, and he's not yet indicated what measure he's willing to sign. As soon as we figure out what he is for then I would be convinced that we were not just spinning our wheels,” he told reporters.
The nation awaits a rational and reasonable solution. Does it seem within the realm of probability that one will be found?

  1. Immigration is the life blood of this country. The melting pot ensures natural change like social and cultural change including genetic and body color. For those who think that should not happen they are not only bigoted, but too uneducated to understand the natural progression of the melting pot. Maybe we can't afford the open policy of 19th century immigration, but we also cannot afford to cut off immigration which is the life blood of our country and one of our oldest stated values as a country. It is just one of the values that makes us different and superior to other countries, as the French well understood when they gifted us the Statue of Liberty.

  2. "....as the French well understood when they gifted us the Statue of Liberty."

    Learn the proper words in English for different versions of "give". We already have a past tense version: "gave". The French gave us the Statue of Liberty.

    This article is useful.

    "Gifted" is actually only properly used as an adjective, as in the name of Professor X's school.
