A senators group affirmed today that they have reached an agreement of immigration to increase security for border and resolve before March 5 the future of the DACA program which protects 690,000 undocumented youth recognized as “dreamers” from deportation.
“It’s going to be ready today, it’s going to be ready today,” Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine told reporters after a closed-door meeting with Republican senators and Democrats.
Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, who was also at that meeting, confirmed that the group of senators has reached an agreement and will make the details public today, as lawmakers are still working to “bring order to the language” of the proposal.
The senators have not revealed specific details of that agreement and have not indicated whether it will include all the petitions of the president, Donald Trump, who wants to reduce the levels of legal immigration, establish a system of merits and raise funds to raise its wall on the border with Mexico.
In statements to the press, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said the agreement includes “two pillars” based on immigration and border security.
Watch Now ; Donald Trump is about to become father again, Yes! it is true as per sources.
That can be a problem for Trump, who this morning took out a statement to reiterate that he will oppose any law that does not include its “four pillars.”
These “four pillars” are a durable solution for DACA, building a wall with Mexico, ending the “visa lottery for diversity”, which randomly assigns up to 50,000 visas to foreigners, and ending the current system of family reunification, Known by his detractors as “chain migration”.
Subsequently, the proposal must be approved by the House of Representatives, where the Republicans have the majority, and for it to become law must have the signature of Trump.
