POLL: Majority Of Americans Agree With Trump On DACA, Immigration


ㅤ”The poll, weighted to be broadly representative of the U.S. population, found that 65% of voters overall agreed with Trump’s position that any bill codifying Obama-era protections for illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children should be accompanied by funding for a wall, ending chain migration, and ending the diversity visa lottery program.
ㅤThe individual elements of each of Trump’s demands remain broadly popular as well. On the most controversial subject of the border wall, 53 percent of respondents said they supported ‘building a combination of physical and electronic barriers across the US-Mexico border,’ and 61 percent said current security along the US-Mexico border is inadequate.”

McConnell promises immigration debate if government reopens


ㅤ”Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Monday promised to take up an immigration bill protecting an estimated 800,000 Dreamers from deportation and allow an open amendment process if Democrats agree to reopen the government.
ㅤThe Senate will vote at noon on a three-week funding resolution to end the government shutdown that began at midnight Saturday. The legislation includes an extension of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
ㅤDemocrats have been pressing McConnell for a vote on the Dreamers legislation, and it is unclear whether his latest commitments will be enough to win them over.
ㅤWith some Republicans expected to vote against the bill, nearly a dozen Democratic votes will likely be needed to clear a 60-vote procedural hurdle.”

Gutierrez ready to give in on border wall


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.”

Republicans unveil harder-line fix for DACA

ㅤPictured: House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.)

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.”

Judge blocks Trump admin from ending DACA program

ㅤPictured: Judge William Alsup

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.”
