Senate to start DREAMer debate and anything could happen

Senate to start DREAMer debate and anything could happen

The deal would give 1.8 million "Dreamers" a path to citizenship in return for $25 billion to build President Donald Trump's U.S. -Mexico border wall. The bill also would curb family-based immigration programs, but not to the extent Trump is seeking and does not end a diversity visa lottery program that he wants eliminated. The comments came the day after the Senate voted 97-1 - Ted Cruz, R-Texas, provided the sole "no" vote - to plunge into an open-ended immigration debate that's been promised by McConnell.

But yet another federal court ruling Tuesday regarding the legality of an Obama-era program shielding young foreign-born "dreamers" from deportation served as a reminder that Trump's March 5 deadline for congressional action is mostly moot.

"The House and Senate are both working on proposals to improve our immigration system".

"There is a widespread desire in this chamber to find a resolution for the illegal immigrants who were brought to this country as children", McConnell said.

Democrats and some Republicans have suggested limiting an immigration bill to a DACA fix and border security enhancements.

Senate Republicans on Monday night declared they would only allow immigration to be on the Senate floor for one week - pressuring Democrats to show their hand as the Senate inched closer to opening its debate. Dick Durbin, the Democratic whip.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has said he wants the Senate to finish considering immigration legislation this week. "The sooner, the better", he said, adding later that if a bipartisan deal is able to get the requisite 60 votes to survive procedural challenges and pass: "Let it rip". Privately, some Republicans fumed a bill being sold as bipartisan had the fingerprints of Democratic leaders on it. Angus King, I-Maine, Joe Manchin, D-W. King, Manchin and Kaine are up for reelection this year.

Trump would want to focus that money on construction of a U.S. -Mexico border wall. Those concerns focused on its spending for Trump's wall and its bar against Dreamers sponsoring their parents for legal residency. Christopher Coons (D-Del.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.), a proposal from Sen.

"I am asking all senators, in both parties, to support the Grassley bill and to oppose any legislation that fails to fulfil these four pillars �?? that includes opposing any short-term Band-Aid approach".

House Speaker Paul Ryan found himself in a tight political spot Wednesday as Republican leaders announced plans to push an immigration bill that appeals to the most conservative wing of his party but will alienate moderates.

The new bipartisan plan would protect from deportation 1.8 million immigrants, known as "Dreamers", brought to the United States illegally as children.

But Democrats in the closely divided Senate strongly oppose the Grassley plan.

Senators are struggling to break through a legislative stalemate on immigration, with centrists making a frantic push to find a deal that can win enough support to pass by the end of the week, The Hill writes.

"This proposal has my support and during this week of fair debate I believe it deserves support of every senator who's ready to move beyond making points and actually making a law", McConnell said in a speech on the Senate floor.

US President Donald Trump today came out in support of an immigration bill introduced by Republican Senator Chuck Grassley, saying the draft supports the four pillars of his immigration framework. He adds that it's "really up to them".

At the Capitol, the president's allies also echoed administration officials.

A GOP leadership aide said Republicans want to light a fire under Democrats and get them to release their amendments. David Perdue, R-Ga., an ardent Trump defender and sponsor of the Grassley plan.

At a House Budget Committee hearing, White House budget director Mick Mulvaney stated several times that the administration's fiscal 2019 budget presumes Congress will strike a deal.

A handful of Senate Republicans have said they would consider voting for the Collins compromise if the text is reasonable.

In separate cases, two federal judges ordered the administration to continue processing DACA renewals for those in the program, regardless of the March 5 deadline.

The New York Times reported in mid-January that "because there are numerical limits for family-based immigration each year, there is a long queue for visas", crediting the State Department for data showing that November 1, 2017, more than 3.9 million people were waiting in line.
