Trump proposes US citizenship plan for 1.8-M undocumented immigrants

Donald Trump Trump proposes US citizenship plan for 1.8-M undocumented immigrants

"We're grateful for the president showing leadership on this issue and believe his ideas will help us ultimately reach a balanced solution", said Doug Andres, spokesman for Ryan.

The White House framework also seeks to end two other initiatives often criticised by President Donald Trump.

But in a sign of hard negotiations ahead, some conservative Republicans rejected a pathway to citizenship and lawmakers in both parties questioned Trump's commitment to protecting the young immigrants known as "Dreamers" from deportation, a top Democratic priority.

Erick Erickson, a leading conservative voice said, "The president's immigration plan, as outlined by the White House, is entirely reasonable and responsible and supportable".

Other Democrats said Mr. Trump's calculus of a trade of Dreamers for the wall was still unacceptable.

The White House has unveiled a proposal that provides a pathway to citizenship for 1.8 million young immigrants living in the country illegally, in exchange for new restrictions on legal immigration and $25 billion in border security.

The White House announced that it would release on Monday a legislative framework on immigration, based on negotiations that Trump has held with both Republican and Democratic lawmakers in recent weeks.

Intel Revenue Rises, but It Reports Loss on Tax Charge
The firm has a market cap of $212,000.00, a PE ratio of 15.89, a price-to-earnings-growth ratio of 1.64 and a beta of 1.06. Excluding items, the chipmaker earned $1.08 per share for the fourth quarter , up 39% from 79 cents a year earlier.

The plan, according to those officials, will be sent to the Senate with hopes that a bill would be delivered by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell before a February 8 deadline for a spending bill to avert another government shutdown.

While the plan calls for doubling the number of Dreamers, it is far from generous as it only allows the immigrants to apply for citizenship after 10 to 12 years and only if they have jobs and have not committed any crimes.

The acknowledgment is the first time Trump said that he would support the policy for recipients of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which shielded roughly 800,000 people, collectively known as "Dreamers", from deportation.

"I think that we need to secure the southern border and we have to turn off the inducements that lead to illegal immigration", Kelli Ward, who is running for the Republican nomination for Senate, told ABC News' Martha Raddatz in an interview for "This Week" airing Sunday.

In the mix of proposals is one offered by Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of SC and Democratic Senator Dick Durbin of IL, which would grant "dreamers" a green card and path to citizenship if they met certain criteria.

"What I would support is a limited bill with DACA and an element of border security in it", said Sen. Congress promised to act after the short government shutdown. A path to citizenship for Dreamers was also included in a bipartisan proposal by Sens Lindsey Graham and Dick Durbin.
