Senate GOP, Dem leaders say it's time for immigration deal

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer D-N.Y. left talks with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell R-Ky. before his speech at the Mc Connell Center's Distinguished Speaker Series Monday Feb. 12 2018 in Louisville Ky. (AP Trump makes calls on immigration to conservative senators

The plan both expands on Mr. Trump's security proposals - E-Verify and a crackdown on repeat-illegal immigrants were not explicitly part of the president's framework - while also making changes to ensure that overall legal immigration numbers aren't reduced.

President Donald Trump says Congress should be - in his words - "strongly considering a system of Merit Based Immigration" as the Senate works on an immigration plan to protect young "Dreamers".

"We're all going to try because of the gravity of the issues at stake", said Schumer, a Democrat from NY. Congress has repeatedly tried and failed to overhaul immigration policy over the past decade.

"It offers a compassionate resolution for 1.8 million illegal immigrants who were brought to the United States as children", McConnell said.

Trump, speaking later during a White House meeting about trade with lawmakers, told 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 USA 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 proposal as drafted Wednesday would extend citizenship opportunities to Dreamers, whose parents brought them to the US illegally as children, but not their parents. The measure provides $25 billion for a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border. This includes an imminent US$25 billion to build a border wall along the southern border, which funds fencing and other technology, along with more border patrol agents.

The White House issued a written statement by Trump urging senators to back his bill and "oppose any legislation that fails to fulfill" his demands.

Speaking on the Senate floor, Democratic Senator and Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer was critical of the Republican moves.

Trump to address nation on school shooting
The Sun Sentinel reported that Feis, acting as a school security guard, responded to the original call on a school walkie-talkie. He says in a tweet that the White House is "working closely with law enforcement on the bad Florida school shooting ".

"He can veto it or he can sign it". "In the Senate, on those rare occasions when we have these kinds of open debates, whoever gets to 60 wins".

"If the Democrats want to make a deal, it's really up to them", says President Trump.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has given members time until the end of the week to come up with a compromise on immigration that Trump will sign. He called the Grassley bill "extreme".

The Senate on Monday voted 97 to 1 to begin an immigration debate in an effort to codify the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program into law before the program expires on March 5 - the arbitrary end date President Donald Trump placed on DACA.

Immigration experts cite various reasons why people eligible for DACA's protections do not apply.

"I mean, President Trump, in a move that I think completely shocked Democrats, offered not just legal status for the 690,000 persons who are enrolled in the Obama-era DACA program, but offered ultimate citizenship to 1.8 million people", Cotton added. Many House Democrats, and some of the party's lawmakers in the Senate, held out on supporting a massive bipartisan budget deal last week because of immigration. Susan Collins, R-Maine, appeared on the verge of a breakthrough on a rival strategy.

A GOP bill tracking Trump's proposal and backed by McConnell has been introduced.
