Why not just accept a common sense deal that includes more funding for border security and a solution for dreamers? What makes that so hard? https://t.co/mjD8VS2C2x

Congressman Patrick Meehan (@RepMeehan ) used thousands of taxpayer dollars to settle a misconduct complaint by a former staffer. These congressmen show such little respect for the women who work with them and the hardworking Americans they represent. https://t.co/E8hVDOTWQD

It should be easy enough for Congress to pass a deal that funds the government and includes CHIP, more funding for border security (not the silly wall) and the military, and a solution for dreamers. The sticking point is DACA. What would motivate such intense opposition to a fix?

Quite the split-screen. Nationwide protests against the president led by women, as party leaders refuse to protect child immigrants even if it means shutting down the government. I hate to see the GOP in this position. It’s not hard to imagine what it foretells about 2018. https://t.co/7SQBc2dafA

There’s no good reason to not include a DACA fix in this bill. Bigotry within elements of the GOP used to ‘just’ mean that party leaders couldn’t advance immigration and criminal justice reform. Emboldened by Trump, it now means that they can’t keep the government running.

When you’re vulnerable to manipulation by the Russians, you’re also vulnerable to the Chinese (and to every other country with a few dollars to dangle). https://t.co/Dy0Xz5whXS

A detailed summary of Trump’s antidemocratic acts: “The turn away from democracy need not be premeditated; an incompetent leader with authoritarian tendencies can pose as much of a threat as one with a systematic plan to dismantle checks and balances.” https://t.co/I4or6pVmev

A brilliant assessment by @RadioFreeTom : “If the GOP ceases to be a sensible opposition party, if it can no longer provide the constraining influence of a governing alternative, the Democratic Party will be overtaken by extremists as well.” https://t.co/9uD9QTBMXL

The alleged Trump Organization money laundering with Russian counterparts is not just significant for its potential criminal component, but also because such transactions are used by Russian intelligence officers to compromise and control their targets. https://t.co/2aFg9I0aPm

Nativism inspired angry "build the wall!" chants at Trump's rallies. Now that same bigotry drives government dysfunction.
