BREAKING: The Vote Has Been Postponed!

Reports are coming in that the Republican immigration bill vote has been postponed.

The postponement is so members have more time to look over the bill before they make their decision. The vote will take place Friday.

This vote needs to happen as quickly as possible due to rising tensions surrounding immigration. President Trump has already put in place temporary fixes involving putting an end to the separation of families, but a long term solution needs to happen. With the Democrats refusing to participate, and instead just grandstand for the media, it is up to the Republicans to solve the problem.

President Trump also recently postponed the annual Congressional picnic. The president did not feel right hosting a picnic for Congress during such an import time of decision making. Trump felt it sent the wrong signal entirely.

As reported by

President Trump on Wednesday postponed this year’s congressional picnic, citing the discussions over immigration policy and his administration’s practice of separating families at the border.

“Because we’re all so busy, and I just mentioned to the congressmen and senators in the room that we are going to cancel and postpone tomorrow’s congressional picnic,” Trump told reporters at the White House.

“We have a congressional picnic tomorrow, and I said, ‘You know, it doesn’t feel right to have a picnic for Congress when we’re working on doing something very important,’” Trump added.

This is the first time a president has postponed the annual picnic. Obama cancelled the picnic of 2013 due to tensions raging over the military debate in regard to Syria at the time.

Do you think Trump did the right thing by postponing the picnic? Let's hear your thoughts in the comments.

We are being invaded by foreign countries. Build the wall, federalize the national guard, pass legislation to allow that Guard to shoot on sight anyone breaking and entering our country. Declare the government of Guatemala, etc., Mexico and the drug cartels terrorist organizations and freeze their assets. Counter the tv ads telling people in Guatemala, etc., how to come to America with ads telling them they will be shot on sight. Infiltrate these socialist countries and overthrow their governments and institute capitalism to replace the socialism. Freeze George Soros assets and those of the Open Borders organizations as terrorists intent on the overthrow of the government. That should do it, I think.
