White House To Reveal Its Own DACA Bill For Senate

Share

Updated 3:24 p.m. | The White House on Monday will roll out a legislative framework for an immigration overhaul deal "that represents a compromise" members of both parties can accept, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday.

"We encourage the Senate to bring it to the floor", she said.

"Certainly in this administration, and by this administration, the president believes that all Americans deserve to be safe in their schools and in their communities".

This comes after Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., withdrew his offer to fully fund President Donald Trump's long-promised wall along the Mexican border.

"We want to deal with the DACA issue, the Dreamer issue, but I don't think we are any closer to having an agreement on that", said Alex Conant, a Republican strategist who worked on the last immigration debate.

A leaked draft of the White House's infrastructure plan has surfaced over at Axios, and although specific funding numbers are not attached, the document offers the first details in what has so far been a fairly confusing process.

Republican Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn said he hoped the effort would "get people thinking about a framework that might actually work".

"The President instructed his administration to make the recent crime wave a top priority", Sanders said, and cited violent crime prosecutions, federal firearm prosecutions, gang- and drug trafficking-related convictions as examples of actions.

But immediately after Trump spoke, a senior White House official cast doubt on Trump's assurances, saying a pathway to citizenship for so-called Dreamers was "maybe" an option.

MNSBC White House Reporter Peter Alexander wouldn't take yes for an answer Wednesday in the briefing room.

Now that Democrats have helped to end the Trump shutdown, the White House is hard at work demonstrating what a failure Donald Trump has been throughout the whole debacle. "We must have safety and security, together with a strong military, for our great people!"

"The framework that you see on Monday will be born out of a lot of those conversations that we've had with a number of members, both Republicans, Democrats; House and Senate", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters.

But when Trump rejected the deal, Schumer pulled the offer.

"We're going to create a standard where not everybody that you ever met can come into the country, but you'll have wives and husbands", Trump said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has said that if senators can not produce a compromise plan by February 8, he would open a debate on immigration legislation that would be "fair to all sides".

Democrats need government running more than Republicans.
