How President Trump Made the DACA Debate More Divisive With One Phrase

The president ditched his tough, arguably divisive, campaign talk and instead, called for unity in his speech.

Noting that the stock market had "smashed one record after another, gaining $8 trillion in value", he said that Americans would feel this upswing in their pensions and their retirement accounts.

The events are usually one-sided affairs: Republicans generally sat on their hands through all of Barack Obama's speeches to Joint Sessions of Congress. I even believe his great uncle, President Kennedy, likewise deserved a listening ear.

King said Trump's call to let the young, undocumented immigrants work toward citizenship over 12 years was not well received by Republican lawmakers, many of whom view such a policy as granting "amnesty" to lawbreakers.

"The people of ME, and of this country, expect thePresident and Members of Congress from both sides of the aisle to work togetherto tackle the challenges facing our nation". "Under the current broken system, a single immigrant can bring in virtually unlimited numbers of distant relatives". The US President said, he will not repeat the mistakes of the past Administrations that got America into this unsafe position. At Investopedia, we are the beneficiaries of that quest for knowledge since we get a lot of search traffic. As both sides of Capitol Hill know, modernizing our infrastructure will require a substantial investment - actual, real revenue.

Meridian Township Police release 2004 report filed by one of Nassar's victims
Engler, a Republican who was governor from 1991 through 2002, said he would strive to lead the school without regard to politics. Meridian Township Police have released their report into a complaint filed by one of Larry Nassar's victims in 2004.

But, for dreamers, they need a bipartisan solution.

"While I travel across Maine's 2nd District and meet with our families and community leaders-from Fryeburg to Madawaska-I hear from them about the challenges they face because of unfair trade, a frightful heroin epidemic, fewer jobs, and less economic opportunity".

Republican Rep. Chris Collins of NY told a C-SPAN interviewer after Tuesday night's speech that he was disappointed with the "artisan divide" in the House chamber. "They are targeting the very idea that we are all worthy of protection".

Yesterday's speech was the third-longest State of the Union ever, lasting more than one hour and 20 minutes. "Our economy is roaring and American confidence is soaring". Three in four Americans who watched the speech said they approved of it, with just a quarter saying they did not.

It may be that in the short-term at least, that the President's calls for bipartisanship and compromise strike a chord with the public, which is wary of years of bitterly partisan politics.
