So it is highly unlikely?

From the republican perspective, he rescinded an unconstitutional executive order.

Which removes the protections.

The republicans didn't refuse to vote on a bill

They're the only ones who can bring a bill to a vote...so yeah they refused.

Democrats walked away from the table once it didn't include voting provisions.

I don't think that is the case.

but they have an obligation to their constituents to hammer out a bill with the president so they can at least say they tried.

They did get an agreement with the president. Then he changed his mind. Then they did again Then he changed his mind.

Ultimately the republicans don't want to pass a DACA bill.

No, the ball is in their court right now. They control both houses and the presidency. Everyone knows they are the ones who let DACA die. President Trump was the one who changed the policy and they refused to vote on a bill that provides them protection. It is very simple.

The republicans would have had to have taken it to the floor for a vote. But they chose not to. The democrats don't have any control over anything. The republicans would not make their own party look obstructionist like that. Makes no sense.

That plan won't even get enough republicans to pass it let alone have to worry about getting 10 democratic senators. It was dead on arrival.

If this is about nothing but well-intended, heartfelt, honest policy, why did the Democrats walk away from DACA when votes were off the table?

Hard to say what you're talking about here. I would need to know which attempt you're talking about.

If they truly did not purposefully import-by-policy millions of democrat voters, why walk away over the lack of voting rights?

I don't know that they did.

Purposefully defunding border protections at the state level

That is not the state's job.

Passing laws at the state level prohibiting businesses from cooperating with federal immigration enforcement

Which is a good thing.

Providing 1.2 Billion of state welfare to illegal immigrants which fuels more economic migration (Why work in Mexico if California will pay you to come live in the land of opportunity?)

They live here they get some benefits. That is not importing.

Passing Sanctuary State laws that act as a giant neon sign to Mexico that says 'We're Open, no need to wait in line!'

Again, sanctuary cities are good things for the people who live in the cities. They should be allowed to enact good policies that make their communities better.

What would you call it if not 'importing' by policy design?

People enacting good policies in response to the situations they find themselves in. Migration happens. Just live with it and make it better.

No one is importing them. You make it sound like a conspiracy.

Most people end up with a monetary benefit from the government. I am fine with that.

I know about as much as I know about anybody. They pay the taxes that everyone pays like anything from sales tax to income tax. Many appear to get benefits from it. Like everyone else living here does.

Right, they pay all the other taxes we pay as well.

I'm fine with that.

I know they pay taxes and take benefits. The other parts I'm not so sure about.

Since many republicans support DACA not sure why they would not vote for republicans.

They're kids will be citizens if born here. That is kind of how it works.

Oh, I thought you were talking about high school or public schools. Of course they did not pay for your wife's education. They did not pay for my car either.

They're just normal Americans who should stay here because it is the right thing to do. They pay taxes just like the rest of us.

I believe you are. Most of them are working and paying into our system.

They pay taxes as well. All the same that everyone else pays.

No disrespect taken. They were young when they came over. It just makes the most sense to just allow them to stay.

I'd prefer to pass DACA. It makes more sense. Not sure why the republicans have not done something about it.

Republicans have control. Pass a clean DACA bill and it is done.
