  3. Mrs Mercedes Schlapp is an exceptional Cuban_american. We are very proud she is cuban descendant. She is an asset in her job and the Republic Party. Keep it up Mercedes !!!

  4. Trump has a non-partisan proposal to resolve the Southern border shutdown on the table which likely will be rejected by the House.

    An alternate proposal that might be appropriate for the State of the State of the Union address might include the following:

    Reopen the government upon the passage of an agreed agenda for discussion of the total immigration and citizenship agenda by a select group of House Reps from each party. Upon the opening all Reps will receive an immediate cut in direct compensation. For each additional week that a measure is not passed, an additional cut of 5%. on. If an acceptable program is not passed within the first two weeks, another 5% reduction followed by a weekly reduction of 5% until acceptable measure is passed.
