US Senate to Vote on Immigration Reform

US Senate to Vote on Immigration Reform

Hispanic Federation President Jose Calderon speaks before pro-immigration demonstrators outside the U.S. Capitol on January 19.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) speaks with reporters in Washington on Thursday, Jan. 25, 2018.

That framework set out four pillars that the White House wants to see addressed in any legislation: legal status for DACA recipients, more spending on border security, ending the visa program that lets immigrants in the USA bring their family members over, and eliminating the diversity visa lottery.

"The Grassley bill accomplishes the four pillars of the White House Framework: a lasting solution on DACA (Deferred Action for Children Arrival), ending chain migration, cancelling the visa lottery, and securing the border through building the wall and closing legal loopholes", Trump said in a statement after Grassley, along with almost half a dozen Senators, introduced the bill in the Senate.

On Sunday evening, a group of GOP Senators issued their own immigration plan - much like the one set out by President Trump.

Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, on Monday introduced legislation that largely mirrors the White House plan. It also would include $25 billion for Trump's southern border wall but would not limit legal immigration by eliminating the lottery visa.

Trump kicked the immigration fight to Congress a year ago when the administration announced it was ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which allows certain immigrants brought into the country illegally as children to work and go to school without fear of deportation. And don't forget, no matter what you believe, you will need 60 votes in order to get something through the Senate - a point that the Senate Majority Leader made last week.

"Their protection should not be contingent on dramatic changes to our immigration system", Bennet said.

"Yes, it's going to happen right here - stay tuned", Illinois Democratic Senator Dick Durbin said in a recent floor speech. It proposes family-linked visas only for spouses and minor children, an elimination of the diversity visa lottery, and the construction of a border wall.

Armando Iannucci's David Copperfield movie starts casting
Patel is just coming off his directorial debut with " Home Shopper " a film featured at the Sundance Festival. It will be written and directed by Emmy-winning Veep creator Armando Iannucci , reports Variety .

The bipartisan compromise emerged after weeks of talks by about two dozen senators, led by GOP Senator Susan Collins of ME and Democrat Joe Manchin of West Virginia.

McConnell promised to bring legislation to the floor to win support from Senate Democrats on a short-term spending bill last month ending a three-day government shutdown.

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. "I hope that we can continue along those lines", he said.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., left, and Sen.

It would boost the number of immigration judges and attorneys to try to work down the immigration court backlog, which contributes to undocumented immigrants being left in the United States for years as they await hearings, and it would also make voluntary worker verification systems permanent - a concession to Republicans but far short of the mandatory use of the e-verify system for every employer that hardline conservatives have long demanded.

The report in Axios comes as both Republicans and Democrats begin to posture on what a final immigration deal, the subject of open debate in the Senate this week, will be.

Asked if he thinks there is too much legal immigration now in the country, the senator said, "I know there are some people (who) think we have too much legal immigration".

But supporting the compromise would put members of Trump's own party at odds with the president, who urged senators to oppose any bipartisan plans that were different from his own.

It is unclear whether any Democrats will support the legislation.
