Trump to unveil new immigration proposal on Monday

Trump to unveil new immigration proposal on Monday

In September a year ago, Mr Trump ended an Obama-era programme, called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, saying it was an illegal assertion of executive authority by his predecessor. But the proposal would also cover those undocumented immigrants who meet the DACA criteria but did not sign up and even more who would be newly eligible under the proposal's timeframe requirements - giving legal status and a pathway to citizenship to about 1.8 million people. It also contains a host of stringent features that are anathema to Democrats, including reducing legal immigration by 25 percent, adding border patrol agents and denying certain funding to cities that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities. That doesn't mean, however, that both parties shouldn't still make getting protections for immigrants brought here without documents as children a priority.

In the meantime, current immigration law should be enforced, and that includes returning illegal immigrants to their homeland.

In the meantime, he said DACA recipients should not be anxious about being deported if their status expires.

"This is legislation that really represents a bipartisan consensus point".

"So we're going to have to start on a new basis and the wall offer is off the table", Schumer told reporters. "This bill is right down the center in terms of public opinion". Three White House officials previewed the framework on the condition of anonymity ahead of a formal announcement.

One official quipped that an agreement on immigration between Sen. "Yes", said Sen. Claire McCaskill, who serves as the top Democrat on the Senate Homeland Security Committee. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who has in recent weeks been at the forefront of efforts to reach an immigration deal.




On the Senate floor today, Schumer said that the "bipartisan group of moderate Senators should continue trying to find a consensus".

The White House will be releasing a legislative framework on immigration Monday.

DACA recipients and supporters protest for a clean Dream Act outside Disneyland in Anaheim, California U.S. January 22, 2018.

Some conservatives are also likely to oppose the pathway to citizenship that Trump is endorsing. "Whatever they're doing, if they do a great job, I think it's a nice thing to have the incentive of, after a period of years, being able to become a citizen". "It's going to happen, at some point in the future, over a period of 10 to 12 years", Trump told reporters. Luckily, Jimmy Kimmel may have found a solution.

Armed with the news that several Democratic mayors had declined an invitation to the White House, Trump again returned to a partisan stance on immigration.

Congress would have to allocate additional money to border guards and immigration judges, and change rules to allow for the rapid deportation of illegal immigrants from countries other than Mexico and Canada who arrive at the US border, the officials said.
