Bipartisan 'common sense coalition' defies Trump with immigration plan

On Monday, McConnell threw his support behind that outline, which is being introduced in a bill by Sens. "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.

The Senate is expected to consider four plans today: The president's; a Republican bill dealing with "sanctuary cities" which defy federal orders on illegal immigrants; a measure by Republican Senator John McCain and Democrat Chris Coons that addresses Daca and border security but not broader immigration policy; and the bipartisan compromise.

There has been some talk of a one-for-one offer - Democrats would get Dreamer protections in exchange for the President's $25 billion in border security money, as Democrats aren't very interested in the President's other immigration ideas.

The hopes for citizenship of 1.8 million illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children hung in the balance Monday as Congress started up debate on sweeping new immigration legislation. 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.

Trump set the stage for the upcoming debate a year ago, when he terminated Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, a program that granted temporary work and study permits to immigrants brought illegally to America as children, and gave Congress a March 5 deadline to address their plight. Trump delayed the program's end until March 5, charging Congress with putting together a legislative proposal on the issue by that deadline. Anything that can get 60 votes will pass; everything else will fall by the wayside. He said Trump "is trying to force his unpopular, hard-line immigration agenda down the throats of the American people".

The waiting period can last a few months to more than two decades, depending on the country of origin, the sponsor's immigration status and the applicant's relationship to their sponsor, The Times reported.

"The President's proposal, now the Grassley bill, is so extreme on legal immigration that several Republicans have been critical of it, including my Republican friends from SC and Arizona", Schumer added. David Perdue (R-GA). But can this plan muster a majority on the Senate floor?

The Senate is heading toward a showdown on immigration with the risk that members will fail to agree on a plan to protect young undocumented immigrants from deportation or keep President Donald Trump's border-security campaign promises.

It was unclear how their package will be received by Republican and Democratic leaders. "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".

The Senate approved a motion by voice vote to begin debate, and as they were doing so, a group of Republican senators said there was a possible deal in sight.

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

"President Trump somehow thinks that Democrats will be blamed for not getting a deal on DACA because we didn't go blindly along with his partisan plan - extreme as it is, with no input from Democrats".
