Senate GOP to introduce Trump's immigration plan

The proposal is expected to be one of several amendments the Senate will consider this week as it debates immigration.

A Republican senator is expressing confidence that the Senate can pass an immigration bill that will be acceptable to President Donald Trump and to the more conservative House.

Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake said his vote on the tax-cut bill in December was contingent on doing something on immigration, and the government shutdown last month led by Democrats quickly ended with a promise by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to bring immigration legislation to the Senate floor. McConnell has promised Democrats debate and amendments over the fate of hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States as children.

But Trump suspended the initiative in September and gave lawmakers until March 5 to come up with a replacement that would protect the Dreamers, a name derived from proposed legislation called the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors, or Dream Act. A more reasonable trade of dreamers protections for more border security, perhaps even some wall funding, is the supermajority policy that should instead emerge.

The Grassley bill essentially makes those bullet points a reality, including the proposals that would toughen immigration enforcement and limiting family-based visas only to spouses and children under 18 years old - a vastly reduced number of eligible immigrants from the current system.

A federal judge in NY has ruled that the Trump administration can not end the Obama-era program created to protect from deportation young immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children.

To prevail, any plan will need 60 votes, meaning substantial support from both parties is mandatory.

Lawmakers in the Senate voted overwhelmingly Monday night to move forward with a contentious immigration debate this week. "Rather, this is the moment for a narrow bill", the New York Democrat said. "We've identified three priorities for creating a safe, modern and lawful immigration system: securing the border, ending chain migration, and canceling the bad visa lottery".

Cotton also appeared Tuesday on Fox News' "Fox & Friends" to discuss the immigration compromise's chances, saying that Trump's framework bill "is not an opening bid for negotiations". The 2013 bill not only addressed the status of the 11 million illegal immigrants and border security, but also included the entire kitchen sink of immigration issues including low- and high skilled workers, refugees, agricultural workers, diversity visas and family-based and merit-based immigration.

The event came days after Congress narrowly passed a bipartisan temporary spending bill, which was opposed by Sen.

"This is going to be done or not done this week", No. 2 Senate GOP leader John Cornyn of Texas told reporters. Given that Republicans have a slim 51-vote majority, and are down one member, with Arizona GOP Sen.

"The only enemy to this process is overreach", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said.

The program's March 5 expiration date is not set in stone, however.

The minority party in the Senate has multiple ways to force a vote on a bill. "He's offered 1.8 million young adults who are now DACA recipients and DACA-eligible an opportunity to get on a pathway to American citizenship", Republican Senator John Cornyn said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., is leading the chamber down an unpredictable path.

"President Trump has actually said to me a whole bunch of times 'I'd like to do comprehensive immigration reform, '" Schumer said in Louisville.
