WORST CONGRESS (i.e., TEA PARTY) IN U.S. HISTORY —> AND NOW, A WORD FROM THE GOP …… “NO”!

DO NOTHING CONGRESS - GOP ELEPHANT

.

Congress took their summer recess on Friday and won’t return until after Labor Day in September.  They left without addressing the current border crisis with Mexico and essentially abrogated any responsibility for at least protecting the safety and welfare of literally thousands of young children and teenagers who have entered the United States from violence-ridden Central America countries.
.
They did, however, manage to pass legislation in the House of Representatives that would mean deportation for a half million illegal immigrant children currently enrolled in U.S. schools who are protected from deportation status by the Dream Act, a program designed to allow for permanent residency after completion of certain requirements.  This is a hollow victory as this bill will never pass in the U.S. Senate with the Democrats being in the majority.
.
This was a rare opportunity for Congressional Republicans to do something of substance to bolster their flagging fortunes for regaining the White House and the U.S. Senate.  But no, not even at this juncture could they muster anything in the way of positive legislation to move the immigration policy of this nation forward by even a small degree.
.
The Republicans are cutting off their nose to spite their face.  They must come to realize that their political survival will depend directly on attracting at least a portion of the Latino vote in the coming years to remain a viable national party.  The GOP is running out of time to stem this tide of xenophobic nativism within their ranks that threatens to cast the party into utter oblivion.
.
The Tea Party will drown the Republican Party all by themselves.  They constitute a substantial portion of the Congressional makeup of the GOP and it appears that their hold on power is virtually irreversible.  The GOP is showing all of the signs of a Jack Kevorkian assisted-suicide regimen.
