Quote of the Day

“Just one year ago, Republicans were talking about passing their own version of the DREAM Act. Tonight, they put the party on record for the total cessation of Barack Obama’s quasi-DREAM Act. The arc of history is long, but it bends toward Steve King.”

-- David Wiegel, Slate, “Republicans Finally Pass a Border Bill: So What's In It?” on the 11th-hour House bill, which offers 1/5 of the resources that Pres. Obama requested, along with deportation of the half a million DREAM Act kids, to address the child migrant issue. Andrew Sullivan adds, “It won’t pass the Senate, of course, but it gives House Republicans a Potemkin vote they can cite when they face their Hannityed constituents this month.” Ick ick ick.
