Senator McCain explains the cross-party immigration bill
Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Christopher Coons (D-DE) introduced a bipartisan immigration reform bill for the protection of “Dreamers”. The bill includes, apparently, the financing for President Donald Trump border wall.
A bipartisan immigration proposal emerged in the Senate, only to quickly put down President Donald Trump via Twitter struck on Monday.
Republican Senator John McCain and Democratic Sen. Chris Coons planned to propose legislation Monday that would shield from deportation immigrants who helped in the United States illegally as children, known as “dreamers” by the Deferred action for Childhood Arrivals program, or daca. The bill would also safety, the strengthening of the border, but it would not want the $25 billion Trump, for a US-Mexico border wall.
But before the Senate had the opportunity to consider the narrow plan, Trump seemed to reject it, on Twitter.
What is the next step for Democrats on immigration?
“Any amount, to DACA, there is no STRONG border security, and the much-needed WALL is a total waste of time. 5. March is rapidly approaching and the Dems don’t seem to care, DACA. Make a deal!” Trump tweeted.
McCain, R-Ariz., and Coons, D-Del., said in a statement that her bill was designed to focus on the two “button” limit questions of the “dreamer” and border security-so the legislature could focus on the completion of the long overdue budget deal.
The McCain-Coons-plan is a more modest approach, as Trump has made an effort for the protection of the estimated 1.8 million young immigrants. The measure did not trump the requirements for the limitation of the relatives, the “dreamer” can sponsor for citizenship and termination of a visa lottery, has in the admission of more immigrants from various places, including Africa.
The senators ” to create a plan and a path for legal status to “dreamers” who arrived in the United States by the end of 2013 and you meet other criteria, such as no convictions for serious crimes. Once you have the seat to lawful permanent resident, you can use the existing procedures to the state to apply for citizenship.
Democrats and some Republicans want to give “dreamers” a path to citizenship, but against cuts trump would make in the number of legal immigrants access to the U.S. Conservatives resist to “dreamers” the citizens become. The stalemate has led to the belief of many that the most likely result is a narrowly focused bill or no laws.
The senators’ proposal is similar to a bipartisan house package of Reps. Will Hurd, R-Texas, and Pete Aguilar, D-Calif.
