Editor's Note

This week Sen. Chuck Schumer said he is withdrawing his offer to fund President Donald Trump’s border wall as part of the upcoming deal on immigration and funding the government. But White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said he can’t do that. “Senator Schumer is trying to rescind an offer that he never made in the first place, and misled the public about,” she said. Meanwhile, the childish president tweeted that if there is no wall, there is no DACA. Our Sen. Richard Durbin has his hands full dealing with this mess by the Feb. 8 deadline, but he and Sen. Lindsey Graham seem up to the task – proposing a path to citizenship for Dreamers, protection for their parents and enhanced border security. They are the adults in the room.
