2/15/18 Broader Options for Americans Act 2/15/18 Tweet - "Remember: #Senate Democrats wanted this #Immigration debate. They shut down the federal government for 300 million Americans, unnecessarily, to guarantee we could have this debate this week." 2/15/18 Immigration 2/14/18 Immigration 2/14/18 Tweet - "Keeping Americans safe does not need to be a partisan issue & addressing important safety issues along w #DACA, border security, and other parts of our broken immigration system is our best chance to produce legislation that can pass the House, #Senate, and earn @POTUS' signature" 2/14/18 Tweet - ".@POTUS' #DACA framework is a compassionate resolution for the illegal immigrants who were brought to this country as children. It offers a generous solution for those 1.8 million that goes well beyond what many anticipated he would offer." 2/13/18 Tweet - "If other #immigration proposals are to be considered, Senators will have to introduce their own amendments, rather than just talk about them. I made a commitment to hold this debate this week. I've lived up to my commitment. I hope this opportunity does not go to waste." 2/13/18 Tweet - "Yesterday, several of my colleagues announced an #immigration compromise that I believe is our best chance to make law. It gives a compassionate solution for 1.8 million illegal immigrants who were brought to the US as children. And it delivers on @POTUS' stated conditions." 2/12/18 Tweet - "I hope the #Senate can seize this opportunity and deliver real progress towards securing our border, reforming aspects of our immigration policy, and achieving a resolution for individuals who were brought to our country illegally when they were young." 2/12/18 Tweet - "The Secure and Succeed Act is our best chance of producing a solution that can actually resolve the immigration issue. We need a bill that can pass the #Senate and pass the House and earn @POTUS' signature." 2/07/18 Tweet - "As I've said publicly many times, our upcoming immigration debate on #DACA, border security, & other issues will be a process that is fair to all sides. While I obviously cannot guarantee any outcomes, let alone supermajority support, I can ensure the process is fair to all sides" 1/29/18 Tweet - "To resolve President Obama's unlawfully established #DACA program and other important immigration issues, I urge #Senate Democrats to put serious, good-faith discussions ahead of partisan point-scoring." 1/25/18 McConnell on White House Immigration, Security Framework 1/20/18 Tweet - " .@realDonaldTrump, the House, a bipartisan majority of the #Senate, and the American people cannot begin to understand why the Democratic Leader thinks the entire government should be shut down until he gets his way on illegal immigration. #SchumerShutdown" 1/19/18 Tweet - "The facts before us are simple. Right now, the Democratic leader has no compromise immigration bill on the table. No bill exists. Why do Americans need to suffer from a government shutdown when he doesn't even have an immigration bill?" 1/18/18 Tweet - "These #Senate Democrats represent tens of thousands of children who depend on #CHIP. Why they would threaten to turn their backs on children -- and shut down the government, while they're at it -- over the unrelated issue of illegal immigration?" 1/18/18 Tweet - "Just so #Senate Democrats know, #DACA does not begin to face a deadline until March, at the earliest. The deadline to fund the government and the Children's Health Insurance Program is TOMORROW." 1/18/18 Tweet - "I find it difficult to believe that #Senate Democrats would want to shut down the government for American citizens and vote down a 6 year reauthorization of health insurance for American children, all over illegal immigration. #CHIP" 1/16/18 Tweet - "With no imminent deadline on #immigration, and with bipartisan talks well underway, there is no reason why Congress should hold government funding hostage over the issue of illegal immigration." 9/14/17 McConnell Statement on Border Security, DACA legislation 9/05/17 McConnell Statement on Administration DACA Announcement 7/07/16 Sanctuary City Policy Legislation 7/06/16 Legislation Before the Senate 6/23/16 McConnell Statement on SCOTUS Immigration Ruling 4/05/16 Immigration 4/04/16 Senators File Amicus Brief in Supreme Court Case Challenging Obama Administration's Immigration Executive Actions 1/20/16 American Safe Act 11/19/15 Syrian Refugees 10/20/15 Sanctuary Cities Bill 10/08/15 Stop Sanctuary Policies and Protect Americans Act 2/27/15 Department of Homeland Security Funding 2/17/15 McConnell Statement on Federal Court Ruling Blocking President's Immigration Executive Overreach 11/20/14 Proposed Executive Action 9/06/14 McConnell Statement On President's Political Announcement 8/20/14 Politico - Mitch McConnell More Polished at Kentucky Forum 8/02/14 Team Mitch at Fancy Farm: "Sound Familiar" 7/31/14 Sen.
