Senate has day of speeches on immigration, but no vote

Culture List DACA Recipients Here Are Steps You Can Take as a Clean DREAM Act Remains Elusive Culture List DACA Recipients Here Are Steps You Can Take as a Clean DREAM Act Remains Elusive

That bill, known as the Secure and Succeed Act, closely mirrors President Donald Trump's wishes by extending protections for Dreamers while fully funding a wall along the US-Mexico border and reducing legal immigration. The last time the Senate debated immigration, in 2013, the matter was on the floor for weeks.

"Such a policy is inconsistent with the promises that he and Republicans have made to the voters, and is in fact further to the left of President Obama's position", Catherine Frazier said.

"The path to 60 is by focusing on responding to the challenge of Dreamers and giving them a pathway to citizenship, and responding to the challenge of border security", Schumer said. The key will be fashioning a pacakge that will get 60 Senators to vote for it. And it's in stark contrast to how McConnell tackled the Obamacare repeal efforts - behind closed doors with a hand-picked group of GOP senators.

The Trump "pillar" of immigration that is easiest for Democrats to accept is protecting some 1.8 million Dreamers who were brought illegally to the United States as children.

Democrats are on the hook to pass some kind of legislation that would legalize DACA recipients - illegal aliens brought here when they were children. Two extremely hard issues - tax and immigration reform - passed by the GOP. The White House has repeatedly claimed DACA recipients have until March 5 to worry about being at risk of deportation. Those measures are excluded largely because business groups oppose any reductions to the annual inflow of immigrant workers and consumers.

"Instead of making a proposal in good faith or working with Democrats on a compromise, President Trump is trying to force his unpopular, hard-line immigration agenda down the throats of the American people by calling it a DACA bill", Schumer said. Democrats have uniformly objected to the cuts to family migration and have issues with the ending of the diversity visa without another way to support immigrants from countries that are otherwise underrepresented in immigration to the US.

But by expanding that to all 1.8 million DACA-registered or DACA-eligible young immigrants, and attaching it to other reforms, Trump has put the Democrats in a corner.

Both parties have various immigration proposals that require the support of at least 60 senators to pass legislation, which will receive alternating votes between Democratic and Republican amendments, Politico reported. It would pave a path to citizenship for up to 1.8 million young "Dreamer" immigrants in the US illegally, a lure for Democrats.

The president has blamed domestic terror attacks and violent crime on beneficiaries of the visa lottery and family-based "chain migration".
