They just ain’t happy….
Their Democratic President IS stuck between a rock and hard place….
Most Americans want migrant’s and want them treated safely….
The President IS getting a beat down by Republicans , who ALWAYS use the images of crowds crossing the bordre to gain political points in some places where Biden and Democrats need votes….
In the Israeli/Gaza conflict?
Immages of blowout buildings and death counts by Israel , that Biden has been begging to stop has turned off muslim and other Americans voters who see Biden as NOT being forceful enough….
Biden is following in the footsteps of his former boss Barack Obama who had to make the same moves to show restraint on immigration policy…
Nevermind that border crossing have dropped by almost 50% recently….
THAT isn’t gonna make the headlines….
Biden says give him backing to do more and the Republicans promptly do a one eighty and say ‘NO’….
Biden IS working to get a pause in the Israeli/Hamas conflict …
But he’s the American President…
He does NOT run Israel…..
Why would Muslim American voters NOT want to vote Biden who has NOT had a Muslim travel to America ban like Trump HAD and vows to reinstate if elected?
“The president would just do very well to remember it has never worked for Democrats to just take up Republican talking points and think that somehow Republicans are going to turn around and thank us for it,” said Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), the chair of the Progressive Caucus. “That’s just not going to happen.”
It has the makings of a potential Democratic crackup, if the border proposal that’s now on the rocks in the Senate manages to stay alive. Speaker Mike Johnson is signaling the border deal is “dead on arrival” with his House Republicans, but liberal opposition could prove just as problematic even if Johnson is persuaded to act on it.
Democratic leaders have avoided any criticism that could further endanger the monthslong border talks; House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries said Monday that his caucus would evaluate it once they could review bill text, and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has welcomed the negotiations. But progressives are openly predicting that the entire effort could backfire by further alienating a party base that’s already disillusioned by the war in Gaza.
“It’s bad immigration policy. It’s bad for our economy. It’s not humane. It’s bad for Americans, and then I think it’s bad politics as well. I don’t think that we should be accepting a hostage-taking situation and Trump-light policies as Democrats,” said Rep. Greg Casar (D-Texas).
The calculus is quite different for Democratic incumbents in battleground states and districts. They have increasingly signaled their willingness to cut a deal that could alleviate a huge electoral vulnerability by showing that the Biden administration can tackle spiking migration….
Senate border negotiators still hope to present a deal to members of both parties this week. It would be tacked on to the White House’s national security emergency spending request, which includes aid for Ukraine, Israel, Taiwan and the southern border. With both chambers and the White House on the line this fall, though, the party is painfully aware that an intraparty squabble with the left could materialize.
Even beyond the Progressive Caucus, key House Democratic voting blocs are riled up about the talks and airing anxiety about what the White House might concede to Republicans. The “Tri-Caucus” of groups representing minority voters is also leery of the Senate’s deal, with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus particularly outraged at its exclusion so far from the talks — though some members in Tri-Caucus groups have cracked open the door to supporting it.
“Republicans are just getting what they want on the border, but then we aren’t getting reforms on immigration. And so it doesn’t feel like there’s a give and take here,” said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).
Some progressives see a potential border deal between Biden and Republicans as a betrayal of his promises to reverse former President Donald Trump’s hardline immigration policies….
Top Senate Democrats, meanwhile, are offering their own subtle advice to the left:
Be prepared to give ground….
