Collision course as Trump pushes immigration plan but Senate weighs narrower path

Collision course as Trump pushes immigration plan but Senate weighs narrower path

"The president's going to have a vote on his concept. I don't think it will get 60 votes." Sen. "You're going to take care of the DACA kids and their parents in exchange for doing the wall".

"Common sense dictates that we can not simply treat one symptom of our broken immigration policy".

It's not even on President Donald Trump's list of demands for an immigration package.

As fragile talks continued in the Senate in a bid to secure agreement on an immigration Bill by the end of this week, Mr Trump insisted that all "four pillars" of the White House's demands on immigration be met in the forthcoming legislation.

"You're down to what most Americans would cheer: strong border security and fair treatment of 1.8 million DACA population", said Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of SC, referring to the young immigrants.

That position was underscored Wednesday by a Department of Homeland Security statement that slammed a competing immigration measure being offered by Sens. Sen John Thune, R-S.D., and Sen.

That bipartisan bill would call for more border security, but would not directly finance construction of a border wall that Trump has promised.

The Senate is now considering an unrelated piece of legislation McConnell brought up to serve as a placeholder for an eventual immigration bill. Lindsey Graham opposing the cuts to legal migration and Sen.

U.S. President Donald Trump holds a meeting on trade with members of Congress at the White House in Washington, U.S., February 13, 2018.

"The time for political posturing is behind us", McConnell said later Monday on the Senate floor.

In a Senate floor speech Wednesday, Heinrich said he would back legislation that includes giving Dreamers a right to stay in the USA and gain citizenship.

House Speaker Paul Ryan says the House will not vote on any plan that does not enjoy the support of President Trump.

"[Gardner's] goal is to find a solution for Dreamers so he is willing to look at other proposals to get to that goal", Contres said.

"The President's proposal, now the Grassley bill, is so extreme on legal immigration that several Republicans have been critical of it, including my Republican friends from SC and Arizona", Schumer added. Chuck Grassley, John Cornyn and Tom Cotton.

For example, depending on the circumstances, the agenda can be set by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell or can be tangled up as many Senators push for votes on their proposals. Their proposal would provide a ten to twelve-year path to citizenship for DACA recipients based on a series of guidelines, coupled with a $25 billion-dollar border security plan, as well as changes to the diversity visa lottery program and limits to extended family migration.

I would love to see our legal immigration system, Judy, that brings in 1.1 million immigrants today - and, by the way, that's up some 400,000 or 500,000 just in the last few years - but we only bring in 70,000 of the 1.1 million today related to what we call the E.B. programs, work programs. Senate legislation that Trump supports would protect the Dreamers and give them a path to citizenship, but he also is seeking to scale back legal immigration, a red flag for many lawmakers. "You'll have Obama, Bush and Trump".

The White House said it opposes the McCain-Coons plan, saying it would "increase illegal immigration" and cause other problems. Many Democrats consider some of the proposals, including limiting the relatives that legal immigrants can bring to the US, to be anathema.

We call on Congress to pass legislation in support of our undocumented youth, but we can not throw other immigrants and border communities under the bus.

The statement is likely to make deliberations on Capitol Hill far harder. Trump delayed the program's end until March 5, charging Congress with putting together a legislative proposal on the issue by that deadline. That deadline is now three weeks away.
