Re: Trump presidency

I agree those are basically the two options. I think the democrats had a better chance of delaying until Oct 1 by having the hearing Monday and then try to delay from the results of that. Trying to delay in advance by requesting an FBI inquiry is pushing too hard (unless there's some precedent/law ...

Trump is not just unconcerned with making legal immigration easier, he is actively trying to make it harder. Your focus on "illegals" is convenient if you have a hard-on for "law and order", especially if it means more brown and black people in jail, but that's not the only thin...
