ㅤ”Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) said Saturday that he’s ready to give President Trump his signature border wall if the Republicans will agree to new legal protections for the Dreamers. Furthermore, he said he’d help with the construction.
ㅤ’I’ll take a bucket, take bricks, and start building it myself,’ Gutierrez told reporters in the Capitol. ‘We will dirty our hands in order for the Dreamers to have a clean future in America.’
ㅤThe comments constitute a remarkable concession from the Chicago Democrat, among Capitol Hill’s most vocal immigration reform advocates and fiercest opponents of expanding wall construction at the U.S.-Mexico border.”

ㅤ”Bob Goodlatte’s measure would provide DACA recipients with a temporary, three-year legal status that could be renewed indefinitely, but immigrants would not be offered a path to citizenship.
ㅤThe measure would authorize $30 billion to build a border wall and invest in other border security measures, end chain migration and end the diversity visa lottery program — all of which were pillars outlined at Tuesday’s White House immigration meeting.
ㅤBut the Goodlatte bill would go a few steps further by mandating E-Verify, a system that crosschecks every new employment contract with a federal immigration status database; allowing the Justice Department to withhold grants from so-called sanctuary cities; and increasing the criminal penalties for deported criminals who return to the U.S. illegally.
ㅤUnder the proposal, immigration levels would be reduced by 25 percent overall, according to a summary sheet.”

ㅤ”‘It just shows everyone how broken and unfair our Court System is when the opposing side in a case (such as DACA) always runs to the 9th Circuit and almost always wins before being reversed by higher courts,’ the President tweeted in response early on Wednesday.”

ㅤ”Judge William Alsup said the Obama-era program must remain in place while litigation over Trump’s decision to end the program plays out, ruling that the administration’s conclusion that the program was illegal was ‘based on a flawed legal premise,’ Politico reported.
ㅤAs a result, DACA recipients who failed to renew their status by last year’s deadline will have a chance to submit renewal applications. The decision does not, however, allow new applications to be submitted, according to Politico.”

ㅤ”Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., have backed off a direct threat to vote against the January 19 spending bill if it excludes the immigration language [Dreamers], in part because the standalone bipartisan deal is in the works.
ㅤ’We Democrats are hopeful we can get this all done,’ Schumer said Thursday when asked if he would oppose a spending bill without Dreamer language. ‘We’ve laid out a number of things we believe have to be in the bill and we’ve had very serious discussions with Republican leadership in those areas. Now there will be staff discussions in those areas to try to get those things done.’
ㅤInstead of insisting the immigration bill be completed by Jan. 19, Schumer called it a ‘goal.'”
