(RepublicanPress.org) – President Joe Biden has pursued an extremely Leftist agenda since assuming office. He’s acting as if he can pass whatever he wants since Democrats control both houses of Congress. However, one lawmaker thinks things aren’t looking good for the rest of his agenda.
Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), the Democrats’ second-highest-ranking senator, predicted a bleak future for Biden’s proposed immigration bills while speaking with reporters on March 15.

According to Durbin, there’s no means of reaching a compromise with Republican senators regarding immigration reform. He said he would like to work on passing “one piece” of reform at a time but doesn’t think “that’s in the cards.”
His skepticism was mirrored by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who told reporters the current crisis at the border makes the passage of a comprehensive immigration bill this year unlikely. With the Senate evenly divided, Democrats would need at least 10 Republicans to side with them — a near-impossible feat these days.
