Caravan furor stokes wall fight

by BY ALEXANDER BOLTON - The Hill  |  Published on October 24, 2018

President Trump and Republicans have made illegal immigration a central issue in the homestretch to the 2018 midterm elections, setting up a showdown over the U.S.-Mexico border in December.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) forestalled a fight over Trump’s border wall before the election by punting consideration of the Homeland Security appropriations bill until the lame-duck session.

When lawmakers return, they won’t be able to avoid a fight over the spending measure, as funds for the Department of Homeland Security will run out on Dec. 7. But how it plays out could be determined by what happens on Nov. 6.

If it is a good day for Democrats, there may be little reason for the party to bend on Trump’s wall — even for a deal that provides a path to citizenship for “Dreamers,” people who came to the United States illegally as children.
