Trump presses Senate to adopt his immigration priorities

After Trump appeared to support Sorenson by lamenting the lack of due process Corbett shot back and said “I got no due process. I think knows the truth but the truth is bad for business.”

Durbin says Kim's family resembles many other immigrants who don't bring wealth and often don't bring a proficiency in English.

The bill would provide a pathway to citizenship for roughly 1.8 million undocumented immigrants brought to the country as minors, but also includes some of Trump's demands, including a $25 billion allocation for his U.S. -Mexico border wall.

"I hope to be able to make a deal", Trump said, adding the Republican Party would "love" to reach an agreement.

The Senate approved a motion by voice vote to begin debate, and as they were doing so, a group of Republican senators said there was a possible deal in sight. This will be our last chance, there will never be another opportunity!

The clock is ticking: almost 700,000 Dreamers who are registered under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program could begin losing protections from expulsion early next month.

Though it puts to end the hand-wringing over whether McConnell would honor his promise, the "what's next" ahead of the March 5 deadline imposed by President Donald Trump is anybody's guess, Politico reports.

The plan both expands on Mr. Trump's security proposals - E-Verify and a crackdown on repeat-illegal immigrants were not explicitly part of the president's framework - while also making changes to ensure that overall legal immigration numbers aren't reduced. Ending the green card lottery would reduce legal immigration by 450,000 people per year according to estimates. "Instead, we must focus on providing certainty to Dreamers and keeping families together". Last month, Senate Democrats refused to pass a spending bill unless a permanent fix to DACA was included, resulting in a three-day-long government shutdown. "There is a big difference between a majority leader actively trying to get his members to yes versus a passive majority leader".

Grassley in the statement said: "This is the only Senate proposal that has any chance of passing the House and being signed into law".

"If the Democrats want to make a deal, it's really up to them".

Mr. Trump hailed that bill as "a good starting point" for his administration to accomplish its immigration goals.

Debate is expected to end this week with a vote on President Donald Trump's own proposal.

"This is going to be done or not done this week", No. 2 Senate GOP leader John Cornyn of Texas told reporters.

"If you're going to be a deficit hawk, you've got to be a deficit hawk all the way through", Schumer said. But competing factions in a divided Congress leave many questions about the path forward.

But Trump and conservative Republicans have insisted that any immigration bill also include funding for a wall along the USA border with Mexico, as well as ending "chain family migration" and the diversity visa lottery program. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., Sen. But the GOP margin for error in the House is much greater, giving Speaker Ryan some flexibility in presenting reform legislation.

The Senate will start introducing amendments Tuesday afternoon.
