Well, this little Freeper went to market two Saturdays ago, after (of course) I had finished last Monday’s Obsession post, but it was too good to pass up, so here we go!

Trump delays planned ICE raids to see if Congress can solve border crisis

President Trump announced Saturday that a planned mass roundup of illegal immigrants by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is being delayed for two weeks, in the hope that a bipartisan solution to the border crisis can be reached.
“At the request of Democrats, I have delayed the Illegal Immigration Removal Process (Deportation) for two weeks to see if the Democrats and Republicans can get together and work out a solution to the Asylum and Loophole problems at the Southern Border,” he tweeted.
“If not, Deportations start!” he added.
He is being reasonable, but not giving up the plan.
That’s not innovative, it’s just shit-stupid.
I had guessed that his announcement of imminent roundups was a negotiating ploy with Congress. I am waiting to see what comes from his apparent vacillation on the Iran drone shootdown. He did NOT just “back down.” Something is in the works.

Of course something is in the works. Possibly a monkey wrench.
Letting the democrats hang themselves with their own rope.

You mean the ones that believe enforcing the law is not a bargaining chip? How stupid are you trumpbots?

No, reasonable would have been acting on his campaign promises on this issue from the start. Not naming three consecutive anti-Trumpers to run DHS against all his stated immigration goals. Declaring the emergency we have and doing what’s needed with his executive powers from the start. Not sticking his feckless, Manhattan Democrat SIL in to give still more to the Dems on the issue this winter. Etc. Etc.
Empty threats and promises while letting in more, kicking out fewer, workplace raiding fewer, etc., than Obama.

If he says it he needs to do it.
Freaking empty threats.

I now pronounce you chump and sucker. You may now kiss the schmuck.
Just when he has the upper hand he falls for this crap.

I can’t understand what’s keeping the 13th-dimensional chess brigade…
Maybe they’ll show up after the “read more”?
