The “bipartisan” immigration bill currently in Congress is a right-winger’s dream, but since Trump wants to run on anti-immigration, the GOP is suddenly opposed to it, arguing that it’s not draconian enough.

Nothing will ever be cruel enough for them, no matter how much Democrats do to appease them. Biden could do everything they asked for, and they’d still insist he was being soft on border control. They need it as a wedge issue. Appeasing them won’t win any points with their base, and it’ll alienate those on the left who want asylum seekers and immigrants in general treated like the actual human beings they are.

This bill is probably DOA at this point. But just in case, I sent a message to my rep advocating for more protections for asylum seekers, not less.
