A Democratic Wave in Congress Could Change Immigration Policy

A Democratic Wave in Congress Could Change Immigration Policy

Trump's aggressive travel schedule over the next several days is aimed at boosting GOP Senate candidates as the party tries to expand its Senate majority, rather than working to defend embattled Republicans in the House, where the party's control appears in doubt.

The campaigning comes one week after a gunman, who allegedly hated immigrants and Jews, killed 11 people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, and after a fanatical Trump supporter was arrested in Florida on charges of mailing homemade bombs to more than a dozen Trump opponents, including Obama. He tried to terminate Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, ending protections for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants brought here as children.

Trump also wants to build a wall on the southern border. "A Democrat Congress means more crime and less jobs".

Trump has personally campaigned for DeSantis and has had harsh words for Gillum, considered by some to be a potential future star of the Democratic Party.

They plan to launch an investigative blitz against the White House and Russian interests if they regain control of the House.

"The president's party nearly always loses seats in the midterm, so it will not be a surprise if there are Democratic gains", West said.

The president said the video is tough "but correct".

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has said she would trade "nothing" with Trump to help him get the wall.

Christopher Galdieri, an assistant professor at Saint Anselm College, said Democrats "have been fired up about 2018 since shortly after the 2016 election".

Moreover, any immigration deal would have to get through the Senate. "We have to have a border if we are going to have a great country".

Texas had already recorded more votes than it did in all of 2014, including Election Day, the group said.

"Is the president going to be in a state of mind to actually want to reach a compromise?" The Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics found in a poll last week that Braun has 40 percent support against Donnelly - who has 41 percent.

With the president having thrown in with immigration hard-liners, some predict a further stalemate in Congress over any immigration legislation.

The president said, while aboard Air Force One, he had watched former President Barack Obama's campaign appearance for Democrats in Florida, but claimed Obama had a "small crowd".

The U.S. constitution has set up a system of checks and balances by vesting power in the President and the executive, the legislature (Congress), and the judiciary.

President Donald Trump and Republican candidates couldn't have asked for a better jobs report ahead of Tuesday's midterm elections, but translating to poll gains and sustaining the growth may prove harder.

Galdieri said Republican voters look likely to turn out at their usual midterm levels.

A wave of robocalls using racist language went out in Georgia in recent days apparently targeted at undermining the campaign of former state lawmaker Stacey Abrams, who is running to become the first black female governor in the United States, according to her and her rival's campaign.The calls impersonated media mogul Oprah Winfrey, who earlier this week campaigned with Abrams, and also featured anti-Semitic language, according to audio of the call heard by Reuters. Trump said, reminding the audience of the large margin by which he won against Hillary Clinton. Ojeda, who voted for Trump in 2016, initially responded by embracing the label, releasing a video in which he said, "If I'm insane. because it's hard for me to sleep at night knowing that we got kids who go to bed hungry, then I'll be insane wacky".
