House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries accused House Republicans of opposing the Senate immigration bill because they are “following orders” from former President Donald Trump.

He emphasized the need for bipartisan cooperation and criticized the lack of collaboration from House Republicans, attributing their actions to allegiance to Trump rather than working towards real solutions for the American people.

Jeffries highlighted the need for less conflict and chaos in Washington, stressing the importance of finding common ground in a period of divided government.

“It should not be dead on arrival. See, you know, we need more common sense in Washington, D.C., less conflict and less chaos,” Jeffries said.

“We’re in a period of divided government. That means we should be trying to find bipartisan common ground. House Democrats have made that clear. On any issue, we’ll work with our Republican counterparts when it makes sense in terms of delivering real results for the American people,” he said.

“How can a bill be dead on arrival, and extreme MAGA Republicans in the House haven’t even seen the text? They don’t even know what solutions are being proposed in terms of addressing the challenges at the border.”

“House Republicans at this point are wholly own subsidiaries of Donald Trump. They’re not working to find real solutions for the American people. They are following orders from the former president. That’s the height of irresponsibility. That’s what the American people dislike about Washington, D.C. at this moment,” Jeffries said.
