Republican legislators unveil new U.S. immigration Bill

Hillary Clinton Calls Donald Trump 'Shithole' epithet turned immigration debate into new Trump drama

Earlier on Thursday, Republicans in the House of Representatives told reporters there had been substantial progress toward a deal.

The House version will contain $30 billion for a border wall with Mexico, and an end to chain migration and the visa lottery system. It's the only game in town. "There is no other bill".

Shortly after Flake's comments, a spokesman for Sen.

"I feel very positive we're moving in the right direction", Senator Dick Durbin, D-Ill., the lead Democrat in the talks, noted. However, he doubts it could get passed by January 19, the deadline that Democrats have set as a target to pass an immigration plan as part of a deal to avoid a government shutdown. Democratic lawmakers are needed to help pass any spending bills to prevent a government shutdown. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he wants to address DACA and keeping the government open in separate pieces of legislation. But Republicans control both chambers, and many want to see big crackdowns on illegal immigration.

A group of Republican lawmakers unveiled Wednesday a bill that pairs granting legal status to younger illegal immigrants with a laundry list of conservative immigration reforms and border security enhancements, including President Donald Trump's proposed border wall.

Jessica Azua is one of about 800,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients hanging on to hope and holding tight to a dream of one day building a life without fear, a life without limits. Trump has terminated it but given lawmakers until March 5 to craft legislation reviving its protections.

The singer could face time behind bars and criminal charges for not obtaining a permit for his pet monkey, according to TMZ . City Attorney's Office told us that there was "no information at this time".

On Tuesday, Trump said an immigration deal could be reached in two phases - first by addressing young immigrants and border security with what he called a "bill of love", then by making comprehensive changes that have long eluded Congress.

U.S. District Judge William Alsup issued a preliminary injunction Tuesday night in San Francisco ordering the Department of Homeland Security to resume accepting renewal applications from people who are already protected under DACA while challenges to the September order work their way through the courts.

DETROW: Whether other Democrats in Congress are willing to make that concession and, just as importantly, whether Democratic voters are, too, will likely be a key factor in whether or not a DACA fix becomes law.

The bill tackles the issue of the future of the 690,000 youths, known as "Dreamers", who came to the U.S. when they were children and were permitted to stay under former President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme, which was established in 2012 and suspended by the Trump administration in September 2017. He stressed the need for "surveillance" and "manpower" in tandem with that. They argued that only Congress could create such protections for so many undocumented immigrants.

Some may honestly believe that Democrats are being compassionate, but let's be clear, their real objective is to get more Democratic voters through a more liberal immigration policy.
