McConnell: Immigration Bill 'Not on the Agenda in the Senate' This Year

U.S. Senate leader points to farm bill vote around July 4 McConnell Cancels Most of Senate’s August Recess

Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) tweeted. "NOW is the time to vote on Fridays (even wknds!)".

Congress faces a few should-do items in the weeks ahead.

What would this Senate bill do? "I do not plan on going anywhere, at any point, in August". The AFP has been sharply critical of President Trump's proposed tariffs, and Philips told Tony we already have the historical precedent to demonstrate that the economic impact of a trade war will be severe.

U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell is playing hardball.

Congressional Republicans are mostly at odds with what they view as Trump's protectionist instincts on trade. Trump's approval ratings have also remained strong among Republican voters. "Then we can finish the business of the people, which is what everyone in the state would like to see occur", she said. Will Hurd, R-Texas, said he would support a similar move in the House. Every time they say 'nominations, ' we'll say 'lower premiums.' When they say 'appropriations process, ' we'll say 'bring down drug prices, ' " the unnamed aide said.

U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey is among a bipartisan group of 10 senators who introduced long-shot legislation Wednesday that would require Congress to sign off on tariffs imposed in the name of national security, defying President Donald Trump on a bedrock issue that once defined the GOP.

Hurricanes are traveling more slowly - which makes them even more dangerous
The change is even more dramatic in storms that have made landfall from the North Atlantic - they're moving 20 percent slower. However, scientists have struggled to isolate the impacts of climate change on the characteristics of extreme weather events.

The centrists want to provide a way for the young immigrants to become permanent residents, which can lead to citizenship.

Floating yellow balloons in front of Senate Republican Leader John Flanagan's office, Dozens of teachers and members of the teacher's union, literally waved their support in favor of a bill that would change the way teachers are evaluated. The White House says the meeting focused on reducing the USA trade deficit by having China buy more agricultural and energy products. Underscoring the sensitivity of the session, staff is to be excluded.

The minority leader's call defied expectations that Democrats would complain about the recess cut. He said Monday that Trump's threat to pull out of the North American Free Trade Agreement could harm farmers in particular.

Schumer would not discuss specifically what he hoped Obama would do for congressional Democrats, but said he "asked him to be involved in certain ways, and he's been very amenable".

Rep. Carlos Curbelo, R-Fla., said in an interview last week that he saw a 50-50 chance of those talks succeeding. Democrats have calculated that health care is one of the critical policies they should run on in 2018.

Which means it could undercut what has grow to be a major weapon within the administration's hardline ongoing commerce negotiations with nations internationally - together with shut U.S. allies within the EU, Canada and Mexico. He said, "They must have permanent status immediately and they must have the option of a bridge into the legal immigration system", meaning a pathway to citizenship. But the GOP conference still had a one vote margin, until the recent decision by Sen. More time in Washington means less time on the campaign trail back home. McConnell has also made it a top priority to confirm as many of President Trump's lifetime judicial appointments as possible this year. "We have a lot of important work to do as a result of unprecedented obstruction", the Kentucky Republican told reporters, referring to Democratic senators have been using procedural tools in order to delay some of the president's nominees.
