Washington -  U.S. Senator Joe Manchin, a moderate Democrat, said on Sunday he thought a new White House immigration plan was a good starting point, and criticized House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi for dismissing it as a way to “make America white again.”

“We don’t need that type of rhetoric on either side, from Nancy, (Republican House Speaker) Paul Ryan or anybody else,” said Manchin, a West Virginian and a leader of a bipartisan Senate group working on immigration. He spoke on CNN’s “State of the Union” program.

Senior White House officials outlined the immigration plan on Thursday that would offer a path to citizenship for up to 1.8 million illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children, a group known as the “Dreamers.”

The proposal also would curb some legal immigration programs and build a border wall with Mexico.

The White House described the “Dreamers” language as a major concession to Democrats, but the plan was quickly dismissed by leading Democrats as a non-starter.

Pelosi said it held Dreamers “hostage to a hateful anti-immigrant scheme” and accused the Trump administration of a campaign “to make America white again.”

In a separate interview Sunday on NBC’s Meet the Press” program, Manchin said he thought the White House plan was “a good starting point.”

His comments highlighted the divisions among Democrats ahead of a Feb. 8 deadline for the U.S. Congress to pass another spending bill and try to reach an immigration agreement that would also protect “Dreamers” from deportation.

Manchin said the bipartisan group led by himself and moderate Republican Senator Susan Collins would meet on Monday evening to examine the White House proposal, adding he expected more details to emerge on Monday.

The group of over 20 senators from both parties, which has been dubbed the “Common Sense Coalition,” helped to end a three-day U.S. government shutdown last week.

“I think we can find a pathway forward (on immigration). I really do,” Manchin told NBC. Manchin announced earlier this week that he will run for re-election this year in a state where Trump trounced Hillary Clinton in 2016.

No, Pelosi has not lost her mind. She's merely an ideological zealot on the left...little different to me than ideological zealots on the right; uncompromising and extreme. But, as VIN is a haven for the latter, I doubt many of you are capable of seeing the parallel...or of understanding that Trump and his allies fall into an extremist camp.

Senator Manchin is more of a centrist...he's a moderate. Halevi benonie...we need more centrists.

At least one Democrat has a conscience and some sense of truth to him, although it’s too bad he couldn't bring himself to fully condemn Vile Nancy without also mentioning Paul Ryan, who has never made a racist remark about Obama or any democrat. There’s no comparison between dems and Republicans dems are on the lowest level of humanity.

Yes you’re right, no one else on VIN has any understanding of anything, while you, O master, know it all. Hence the new screen name?

So following your post, the obvious question begging to be answered is, if everyone here is so stupid and beneath your intelligence level, why do you spend so much time here? Lol

Why I am here?

1. Same reason I read Breitbart and Fox; it's good to know the take of multiple sides of issues;

2. Two of us have fun every motzoi Shabbos discussing which post on VIN during the previous week was the most outrageous; and

3. My ever growing fascination with Jews who seem to be frum, while at the same time adopting attitudes and policies traditionally those of good ole American isolationists, segregationists and populists.

And, by the way, whether or not you think I am correct or an arrogant whatever matters not...my views represent what the majority of Americans seem to feel a year into your Fuhrer's administration.

You are a shining example of a Yiddishe personality, a kiruv model whose comments should be posted on the walls of Chabad Houses and Partners in Torah meeting rooms everywhere.

I have contempt for Hillary, and shed not a tear for her loss. The A..hole in the White House, however, is an ignorant racist, misogynist abomination...who is wrecking my country, ruining its status abroad, making a mockery of the great institution that is our Constitution...a lying pu--y grabbing, adulterous thieving horror of a fool.

And whether you Judeo-Populist, neo-fascist, ill-educated intolerants accept it or not...the fact is that an ever increasing majority of Americans, Democrats, Republicans and Independents, share my opinion.

AmYisroel my foot...White Populist in a Yarmulke is more like it.
