Senate Republicans are warning that Ken Cuccinelli, who was tapped Monday to serve as the acting head of the Citizenship and Immigration Services, will not be confirmed by the GOP-controlled Senate.
 
Cuccinelli started his job atop the immigration agency Monday, a controversial move that came even after top Senate Republicans have publicly warned that the former Senate Conservatives Fund leader would face a rocky reception on Capitol Hill.
 
Trump hasn't said if he will try to get Cuccinelli confirmed to the spot on a permanent basis. But Republican senators sent a warning shot on Monday, predicting that he likely cannot be confirmed in the GOP-controlled Senate, where a nomination has to lose four Republican senators to fall short of the simple majority required for nominations.

Thune, Cornyn, and McConnell.  Trump was a fool to think this would fly.

Maybe do what other Presidents would do?  Call 'em czars, give 'em the keys and turn 'em loose.  No muss, no fuss.
I will NOT comply.

This does not surprise me.  There's been GOP static about Cuccinelli for some time now.

Cuccinelli had the audacity to tell the truth about a bunch of worthless swamp dwellers, Yes John Cornyn I'm talking about you, and this is payback time.

I agree. NONE OF THEM ARE REPUBLICANS. Liars. All demon-rats. I always wondered why some REPUBLICANS don't infiltrate democrat side.  Would even things out.  Too honorable?

That's pretty much the static I mentioned.  Romney's the McCain "no" vote, then the usual suspects take it under 50.   9999hair out0000
