Bipartisan Group of Senators Tries to Forge DACA Deal

"We're seeing business owners who have been here for 20 years having to be sent back to countries that they don't know", says Gomez. That program, started by former President Barack Obama, shields immigrants who arrived in the U.S.as children and are living here illegally. The agreement is also expected to include additional border security, minor changes to family-based migration, and drastic changes to the diversity visa lottery program.

The committee chairman said the Catholic leaders are ready to work with Congress and the White House to find a solution, but he also cautioned against including "unrelated, unnecessary or controversial elements of immigration policy" in a fix for DACA. I want safety and security for our people. And if you do it the right way, in this country at least, you can win.

The initiative of the Republican lawmakers proposes that the beneficiaries of DACA be able to have a permit that allows them to reside in the U.S., without being deported, for three years, with the possibility of renewing this permission indefinitely. "There is no other word one can use but 'racist, '" United Nations human rights spokesman Rupert Colville told a Geneva news briefing.

The Trump administration wants Congress to approve almost $18 billion over the next decade for construction of a border wall with Mexico in the southwestern United States. "But we do need a wall for a fairly good portion". "We just need action". "We're going to keep having these conversations".

Our bill would achieve these goals by cracking down on people who overstay their visas, by requiring employers to use the accurate and hugely successful E-Verify system to ensure that they hire only legal workers, and by making it easier to deport aliens who are gang members, who are aggravated felons, who fail to register as sex offenders, or who have multiple DUIs. Dianne Feinstein, he offered to sign a "clean" DACA extension while Congress worked out other aspects of immigration reform in separate legislation.

"We want to have a DACA compromise", House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin told reporters.

The comments came during a meeting that included Durbin, Sen.

Days after a federal judge in California temporarily blocked President Donald Trump's efforts to pull the plug on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, the federal government said on Saturday that it would ― "until further notice" ― resume accepting renewal applications for the program.

"There's only one member that said there was a deal reached and the other members are well in sync on the same page that we haven't quite gotten there but we feel like we're close", she said Thursday afternoon.

During the meeting, Trump sat between two Democrats - Sen.

DICK DURBIN: I am doing my best to get everything I can under the current political circumstances.

"I think even if you've got that court, we gotta make sure Congress sits down and works something out", Cuellar said.

The bill is also filled with other immigration items on Trump's wish list, including a proposal to allow the Justice Department to withhold grant funding to so-called sanctuary cities.

It also aims to end the phenomenon of so-called "chain migration", which sees United States citizens and Green Card holders facilitate the entry of their family members to the country.
