Thread: A brief history of the DREAM Act. It was first introduced in 2001 by Dick Durbin and Orrin Hatch, and it's been consistently opposed by most Republicans ever since.

This is a really useful thread. Key takeaway: Democrats moved in the direction of their voters...and so did Republicans. One party is diverse, and the other attracts Nazis.

Scott Perry (R-PA), who faced felony charges in 2002 of conspiring to falsify state-mandated sewage records, continues to spew, claiming on FoxNews that (contra ALL law enfor) he has "credible" info that ISIS "infiltrated" through southern border & is resp for Las Vegas shooting

It happened because the shooter had easy access to weapons originally optimized for mass shootings along with easy access to modifications that restored them to near enough original function that he could use them to commit the worst mass shotting in modern U.S. history.

I’m a NO. This is not the way to govern. There is a bipartisan agreement which could fund essential services for Americans, help the dreamers, fund CHIP, and avoid a catastrophe. After this gambit fails we should vote on that.

Obama admin officials tell The Daily Beast they’re “shocked at the apparent lack of seriousness” with which the Trump W.H. appeared to approach the potential funding lapse. Numerous federal agencies appeared to have not submitted updated plans to OMB.

This somehow manages to insult both Steve King and Tom Cotton. And so it is good.

It is only amazing to those who are privileged to ignore the protections gov't provides for the less fortunate against the predations of free market fundamentalists like you and your husband (though that didn't stop you from getting federal aid & degrees at public universities)

"...Even funnier, because they eat nothing but jellyfish they’re really low in nutritional value anyway, so they basically survive by being not worth eating because they’re like a big floating rice cracker wrapped in leather" /3

"...Their biggest defense is that they’re massive and have super tough skin, but they do get hunted by sharks or sea lions sometimes and they just sort of float there like ‘oh bother’ as it happens" /2

TIL the mola mola fish can be over 2,000 lbs yet is a famously useless creature From madsciences on tumblr: "they just sort of get blown around by the ocean & look confused, but because they lay more eggs than ANY OTHER VERTEBRATE IN EXISTENCE, evolution can’t stop them..." /1

Republicans would rather cover for a racist President than protect Dreamers. They’d rather let CHIP expire and use it as leverage than make sure kids have health insurance. is the culmination of years of GOP cynicism and irresponsibility.

Every Democrat’s speech today should begin and end with this: “We are approaching a shutdown because Mexico did not pay for the wall.”
