Senate Heads to Immigration Showdown Votes With No Clear Outcome

Hispanic Federation President Jose Calderon speaks before pro-immigration demonstrators outside the U.S. Capitol on January 19. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) that provides a pathway to citizenship for 1.8 million undocumented immigrants, including DACA recipients.

That framework set out four pillars that the White House wants to see addressed in any legislation: legal status for DACA recipients, more spending on border security, ending the visa program that lets immigrants in the USA bring their family members over, and eliminating the diversity visa lottery.

The Trump framework includes legalization and eventual citizenship for about 1.8 million Dreamers, including 690,000 in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program; construction of a border wall; curbing family reunification migration; and ending the visa lottery.

Chuck Grassley and others that includes the President's proposal to grant a pathway to citizenship to the young undocumented immigrants who came to the USA as children who were covered by DACA, but also includes upwards of $25 billion for border security, hardline immigration enforcement and substantial cuts to legal immigration - the latter part of which has been uniformly opposed by Democrats and some Republicans.

But when the Senate adjourned on Monday evening, it became clear that Republicans were not looking for an extensive floor debate featuring votes on a variety of amendments and proposals.

President Donald Trump past year announced his administration was ending the Obama-era program known as DACA that gave protections from deportation to this group of immigrants.

DACA is set to expire on March 5 but a federal injunction likely extends the program beyond that date. The debate, which may last the entire week, is not on any specific Bill. "I hope that's the choice they'll make".

Lastly, the letter urges Democrats to reject any immigration proposal that would end the diversity visa lottery - a program that admits up to 50,000 people to the United States each year from countries that send few immigrants to the country.

"We have other things to do", McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, told reporters Tuesday. Dick Durbin (D-IL) lectured, "Dreamers should not be held hostage to President Trump's crusade to tear families apart and waste billions of American tax dollars on an ineffective wall". David Perdue (R-GA), who argued there must be more than a resolution for just Dreamers.

Americans "know this president not only created the problem, but seems to be against every solution that might pass because it isn't 100% of what he wants", top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer said.

But that measure, from the Senate's most hawkish Republicans on immigration, is unlikely to gain much, if any Democratic support.

To solve the issues of immigration, all those aspects will need to be on the table, Thune said, noting 60 votes will be needed in the Senate to pass an immigration law. The last time the Senate debated immigration, in 2013, the matter was on the floor for weeks.

But, the official said on a call with reporters, immigration officials have to enforce the laws as written.

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

If that happens, Rounds said, "We'll allow the president to determine whether or not it moves in the direction that he wants".
