Trump briefs Republican senators on emerging US immigration plan

Paramedics and U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents stand next to a migrant rescued from the sewer in El Paso Texas in this 'There is a Crisis': New York Times Editorial Board Calls on Congress to 'Give Trump His Border Money'

A senior administration official told reporters that the total number of immigrants allowed into the country would not change under the plan - only the types of immigrants admitted. The editorial board argues the White House should have left that "toxic" fight for another less urgent request, but that "Democrats need to find a way to provide money for adequate shelter". Democrats were not in attendance.

After he returned to the Capitol, Sen. "I heard large areas of agreement from everyone in the room".

Kevin Cramer of North Dakota called it a "good starting point" that could be appealing to Democrats in the right situation.

The editors acknowledged that a border crisis exists, but they don't view it in the same way Trump does.

Lawmakers said none of the Republican measures do anything to protect from deportation the more than 1 million undocumented immigrants brought into the United States years ago as children and referred to as "Dreamers". Though he had no previous background on the contentious subject, Kushner has tried to replicate the playbook he used to help push bipartisan criminal justice reform legislation across the finish line a year ago.

And former Vice President Joe Biden, who is running for the Democratic nomination to challenge Trump, accused the president Tuesday of using immigration "to demonize people".

Trump and Kushner met Tuesday afternoon with a dozen Republican senators who seemed largely receptive to the effort.

Vaughan, whose group is concerned that Kushner's proposal will be too accommodating to business groups that want more immigrant workers, urged Trump to prioritize the southern border, where a surge in Central American migrant families has been overwhelming federal resources.

The proposals discussed at the meeting, he said, not only begin to address the current crisis, but make much-needed reforms to the rest of an outdated immigration system.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Tuesday described the plan as "fairly comprehensive" and said it could include changes to the diversity visa lottery, which Trump has long criticized.

Paulina Dedaj is a writer/ reporter for Fox News. There is deep doubt in Washington that there is any appetite on Capitol Hill for a wide-ranging agreement.

The plan doesn't tackle such issues as what to do about the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants already in the US or how to restructure the slew of guest worker programs that allow foreigners to enter for temporary work. He is expected to continue to hammer the issue in his re-election campaign as he tries to energize his base of supporters.

"Having seen our experience, going big and ending up nowhere", he said, "I think we're better off trying to address this in a targeted sort of way". "Now, it's on us to do our job", said Rep. Mike Rogers of Alabama, the top Republican on the House Homeland Security Committee.
