The Senate just voted on the last of four immigration bills, this was the Grassley bill that was championed by President Trump. It went down 39-60. Not only did all four bills fail today but the poorest performer was the one that embodied Trump’s guidance for what a bill must have in order for him to sign it.

What next? I’m not a legislative expert. McConnell has said that after this week the Senate has to move on to other business. I expect he’s serious about that. I think the “burn it down” strategy used by the White House to defeat the other bills, as well as some very intemperate/incindiary remarks, allegedly by Stephen Miller, about Lindsey Graham contributed to the poor showing of the Grassley bill even though at least four Democrats voted for it.

For our sake, I hope Miller stays where he is because Lindsey Graham would sell his mom to a Turkish whoremonger for an amnesty bill.

I suspect this will hit the back burner, negotiations will continue, and like an H. P. Lovecraft zombie, it will be reanimated at a later date.
