US Senate Begins Work on Immigration Plan

US Senate Begins Work on Immigration Plan

And other more-conservative members of Congress have pushed for more-stringent cuts to legal immigration, bringing Trump and the White House largely on board.

"Instead of making a proposal in good faith or working with Democrats on a compromise, President Trump is trying to force his unpopular, hardline immigration agenda down the throats of the American people by calling it a DACA bill", said Schumer. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, who has been blamed for causing a brief government shutdown as he opposed the bipartisan budget deal last week.

Mr Porter worked in the White House for more than a year without full security clearance and despite allegations of past domestic abuse. He wrote, "This will be our last chance, there will never be another opportunity!"

Democratic senator, Dick Durbin, said he had hoped that the 49 democrats and independents together with 11 republicans showing support for the bill could get it passed but Cornyn warned that apathetic support on the part of republican would only result in failure.

Ending the program would prevent immigrants who are "far better educated than US -born Americans" and who "work in managerial and professional occupations" from coming to the United States. He also wants to curb legal immigration, restricting the relatives that legal immigrants could sponsor for citizenship and ending a lottery that distributes visas to people from diverse places like Africa.

The bill from Grassley and his colleagues, the Secure and Succeed Act of 2018, was announced late Sunday.

U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said in Louisville on Monday that a "won't be easy". Only Texas Republican Sen.

Agreement may be hard to come by as other amendments are unlikely to receive 60 votes on the Senate floor. Republican leadership in both chambers has made clear they want to pass a bill that the president wants to sign - not test the veto override process.

But Graham told reporters that any deal would not include a pathway for the parents of DACA recipients.

The previous effort to revise the U.S. immigration system passed the Senate in 2013, but was not taken up in the House because of opposition to that proposal. "If legislation passes the Senate but doesn't go anywhere in the House - the job has not been done", Contres said.

"It's not going to be as easy here in the House as it may be in the Senate", said Representative Doug Collins, a Georgia Republican.

Senators and many lawmakers in the House reject the White House proposal as too far-reaching.

It is unclear when a vote on any of the proposals might occur.

Debate begins this week in the US Senate on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, and Schumer said this week is a test on whether the Senate can weather the stormiest of weather.

Exactly how many competing proposals there are in the Senate remains in question. It includes a measure to protect up to 1.8 million Dreamers - young people who were brought to the USA illegally as children - as well as a $25 billion fund to beef up border security and tackle illegal border crossings. Jeff Flake and South Carolina Sen.

The compromise agreed to by a bipartisan group led by Sen.

"President Trump's contribution to this debate has been to put forward a proposal that contains a vast curtailment of legal immigration, far outside the scope of DACA for border security, and demanded that Democrats support it", Schumer said.
