Senate Border Deal


Advocates see it as a step towards enhancing border security and modernizing asylum procedures, aiming to streamline immigration processes and bolster enforcement. However, critics argue it falls short in key areas: it's seen as insufficient in securing the border, lacking rigorous measures for more selective entry, and not addressing broader immigration system reforms. This bill also faces scrutiny for combining immigration issues with unrelated international funding, muddying its focus. This controversy underscores the challenging balance between securing borders, ensuring fair immigration practices, and addressing the diverse needs of migrants, residents, the nation's workforce, and our overall productivity and humanity.


Should the House Support the Senate's Almost Border Deal?

Let’s get horizontal, Politics 4.0 makes strange bedfellows

Turn your phone and your perspective horizontally
Widen your views, literally and figuratively
Politics is a landscape not a self-portrait
You’ll need both your left and right thumbs
Widen your views — left and right
Let’s knock down some figurative silos
Let’s sit on the 50 yard line, not just one end zone
