AND NOW FOR SOME GOOD NEWS: US Tells The UN It Will Forge Its Own Path On Immigration

The U.S. pulled out of a global pact on migration and refugees Saturday, informing the United Nations that it will make decisions independently about who is allowed to come to the U.S.
The U.S. will no longer participate in the Global Compact on Migration, a result of the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, which was unanimously adopted last year as a non-binding agreement to protect the rights of refugees, help them resettle, and facilitate access to education and employment, according to Voice of America.

President Donald Trump’s administration has expressed concerns, suggesting that the accord poses a threat to U.S. national security. “Our decisions on immigration policies must always be made by Americans and Americans alone,” U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said Saturday. “We will decide how best to control our borders and who will be allowed to enter our country.”

Here's some better news: Even 74% of R's support legal path for Dreamers.

It's because it's obviously the right thing to do, and the polls have consistently shown (for years) majority of R's are in favor of legal status for immigrants.

Everyone but the haters know this. Even Donald Trump knows this.

It's time to do the right thing, and get this issue off the table.

It only hurts Republicans the longer this drags on.
