Bipartisan US Senate immigration plan draws quick opposition

Bipartisan US Senate immigration plan draws quick opposition

"We anticipate that in our bill by noting that the president wants to move to a merit-based system, but we don't attempt to do that in this bill".

In an Oval Office meeting, President Donald Trump questioned why the deal includes restoring protections for people from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries. We must turn off the irresistible "jobs magnet" and ensure that immigration laws are effectively enforced within the U.S.

"The president indicated that our bill, the Securing America's Future Act, is the starting point to correct the flaws in our immigration system", House Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte told reporters. And in that meeting, he completely contradicted his own position and that of the Republican leadership, saying that he wants to do DACA first and he would sign a "clean" bill to codify DACA before they get to a larger immigration package that would include a border wall.

"We are now working to build support for that deal in Congress", they added.

The proposal presented by the bipartisan Gang of Six was a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children - beyond just those who were enrolled in DACA when it ended, according to lawmakers and sources familiar with the meeting. The administration said at the time it did not have the authority to administer the program and it was up to Congress to make it law.

From 2700 miles away, Villalobos watched this week's public White House showdown, pitting California Senator Dianne Feinstein against Bakersfield Congressman and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. "We're pleased the bipartisan members are talking".

A federal judge temporarily blocked President Trump's order ending the DACA program, Tuesday night.

Activist dreamers aren't satisfied with this type of plan, said Juan de la Rosa, a Virginia Tech graduate and DACA beneficiary who still lives and works in Blacksburg. The decision halts the Trump Administration's September 5 decision to end the program, ramping up a heated debate over the fate of 800,000 young, undocumented immigrants commonly known as Dreamers.

Trump made the remarks when Democratic Sen. Durbin is a member of the bipartisan group and an early proponent of legislation to shield those immigrants.

"It's not even a fig leaf".

"We want to have a DACA compromise", House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin told reporters.

The ruling came hours after Mr Trump presided over a high-profile White House meeting with lawmakers from both parties on the fate of so-called Dreamers.

The proposed bill also would provide $1.6 billion in funding for a wall on the US-Mexico border and eliminate the diversity visa lottery program (two key demands of Trump). "We have to have the wall for security purposes".

Similarly, the diversity lottery was not eliminated, as some are seeking, but instead shifted its 50,000 annual visas to other immigrant groups, namely Salvadorans and others who must leave the country as Trump ends their temporary protected status.

Sanders did not care about the filmed proof in that instance, and the White House, evidently, doesn't care about the proof now as officials attempt to deny that they extracted Trump's statement from the transcript intentionally.

Republican leaders also distanced themselves from the bipartisan group's plan.

During the meeting, Democratic Sen.

DETROW: Now they say they're working on building support for the deal in Congress.
