Senators begin to outline bipartisan 'Dreamer' plan as open debate begins

Trump blames Democrats for deadlock on DACA solution

But in a morning statement, Trump urged senators to oppose any bill that did not also embrace the "four pillars" of his immigration approach, which includes a rewrite of the nation's immigration laws that would close the country's borders to many immigrants trying to come to the United States legally. Republican have introduced one amendment that closely resembles Trump's immigration framework.

Grassley lashed out at Democrats for opposing his bill, saying they should support it after clamoring for months for a DACA fix.

Trump wants a lengthy path to citizenship for the now registered 800,000 DREAMers and potentially a million more who qualify, as well as border wall funding, an end to family reunification other than for spouses and minor children, and an end to the diversity visa lottery.

The department says the proposal does not address the administration's border security and immigration concerns.

On the second day of immigration debate in the Senate, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) declared that Democrats could be blamed for the current Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program predicament "only in a Kafkaesque, "1984" world".

In a Senate floor speech Wednesday, Heinrich said he would back legislation that includes giving Dreamers a right to stay in the US and gain citizenship. "They know this president not only created the problem, but seems to be against every solution that might pass because it isn't 100 percent of what he wants". Jeff Flake put it, "this is the best shot we've got". Anything short of that and Republicans run the risk of appearing softer on immigration than Trump and therefore prone to criticism from the base and conservative media of backing "amnesty".

"The president's going to have a vote on his concept". Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., a reference to a vulgar description Trump used for African countries during a discussion of immigration. You can do what we've done for the last 35 years - blame each other. "Now is not the time nor the place to reform the entire legal immigration system".

The dealmaking came after Democrats spent the first three days of immigration week blocking all floor action and retreating behind closed doors to try to work out another "grand bargain", similar to the deals the Senate tried on immigration in 2007 and 2013.

It would grant a 10- to 12-year route to citizenship for 1.8 million Dreamers, participants said. And in the era of Trump, it's not even clear if there even is one on immigration anymore.

Instead, laying down a shell bill that had nothing to do with immigration that he has invited members to amend. John McCain (R-AZ) will nearly surely miss the vote, unless he's secretly on his way to the Capitol right now.

In return, Trump would get the $25 billion in border security funding he is requesting.

Sen. Murray Applauds Mulvaney's Honesty About Trump's Budget
The budget includes block grant funding for state Medicaid and Medicare programs. The former congressman was testifying to the Senate Budget Committee on Mr.

"The White House opposes the McCain-Coons immigration proposal, which would increase illegal immigration, surge chain migration, continue catch and release, and give a pathway to citizenship to convicted alien felons", said deputy press secretary Lindsay Walters.

The top Republicans in both the House and Senate praised statements from the administration Wednesday, describing it as a boost for the approach that many of their more conservative members support.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the president has "spelled out a fair and generous framework that will be necessary to earn his signature". House speaker Paul Ryan said he had been informed of the inquiry, and urged the White House to improve its vetting system. "And that honest offer that he put on the table should be the framework through which we come together to find a solution".

Mr. Ryan repeated his vow to resist any bill that Mr. Trump won't sign. Republican leaders have said Congress should only pass legislation that Trump would sign, but how flexible the president would be was a key question for lawmakers.

His comment comes as a group of senators pushes a bipartisan plan that aims to offer citizenship to certain young immigrants brought to the U.S.as children - and provides billions to build a border wall with Mexico.

Graham said the parents of the Dreamers, also in the country illegally, would get no such safeguards, a concession to the White House.

Asked about Trump's veto threat, Graham said, "Well, then, we won't go very far. You'll have Obama, Bush and Trump".

If the bipartisan immigration plan passes the Senate, it faces an uncertain fate in the House of Representatives, where Republicans hold a larger majority.

Congress is scrambling to act after President Donald Trump ordered the March 5 termination of an Obama-era program giving the young immigrants temporary legal status.

Trump campaigned in 2016 and has governed on a tough law-and-order stance in regard to immigrants. That deadline is now three weeks away.
