They don’t just want the wall. Without telling us, they loaded up their bill with anti-asylum provisions they know Democrats won’t accept.
The WH deliberately got poison pills inserted in Senate GOP bill reopening govt, NYT confirms.
"WH officials conceded privately they had tacked on controversial proposals anathema to Dems that would block many migrants from seeking asylum"https://t.co/eS78g19WPa
Yup, a sham: https://t.co/6Jh32ebSuE

Starting a new thread here on how the Senate GOP bill doesn't extend TPS either and actually guts it, including going forward. It is entirely new program & new restrictive status. Media should stop reporting that the bill would extend TPS https://t.co/DejhVpOILF

The malevolence in this Trump/McConnell bill is staggering. It gives the Democrats nothing; the President clearly misled the American people and Congress; it isn't a compromise; it has major revisions to imm law which must go through regular order. It is a horror show. Thread: https://t.co/LeL5m8YHWe

This isn’t a “compromise.” Trump’s proposal rolls back existing protections for asylum seekers. Trump’s team had to know Democrats would vote against it. The whole point appears to make it look like a “compromise” without actual compromise. https://t.co/FZL4Tyw6FH
