Here's What The Trump Administration Wants In Exchange For Protecting DREAMers

White House Sends Congress Plans for Immigration Enforcement

A letter sent with the list, which was signed by President Trump, states: "These findings outline reforms that must be included as part of any legislation addressing the status of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients".

The proposals will likely assuage immigration hardliners among Trump's base, many of whom were shocked last month after he appeared to be coming to a compromise with Democrats in Congress to extend DACA without conditions.

The list includes numerous items long advocated by restrictionists: Fund the border wall, end asylum abuse, stop sanctuary cities, require E-Verify, end chain migration and the visa lottery, and more. Dems plead for nursing home residents" right to sue Crying on TV doesn't qualify Kimmel to set nation's gun agenda Trump knocks "fake' news coverage of his trip to Puerto Rico MORE (N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.). It also called for limiting family-based green cards to spouses and the minor children of United States citizens and lawful residents.

Needless to say, this was met with outrage on Capitol Hill and is also expected to upset the tech giants.

82 percent of USA voters, including 69 percent of Republicans, want Dreamers to be able to stay in the country and apply for citizenship, a Quinnipiac poll found late last month. That is a fundamental shift from today's focus on family-based migration. "This proposal fails to represent any attempt at compromise", Schumer and Pelosi said.

So far the H1-B system has been functioning without any changes and the immigration service is processing applications at the same levels as before. If lawmakers can not agree on a deal by March, DREAMers will start losing the benefits granted by the program.

"The principles the president has put out show he understands what's broken in our immigration system and what's holding down wages for American workers", Cotton said in a statement.

Border hawks praised President Donald Trump's shoot-for-the-moon list of demands as part of any deal to grant legal status to so-called "dreamers", even as Democrats went ballistic.

Trump's untenable demands call into question his commitment to helping Dreamers. The anti-borders activists are demanding a "clean DREAM Act" (which would be many times larger than a simple DACA fix) without even the flaccid provisions in the "No Wall McCaul" border bill.

A week later he asked if anyone really wants to throw out to "throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs".

During the campaign, Trump made a habit of telling his base that he was taking an extreme position on immigration, then quickly walking back his remarks.

Ronald Vitiello, U.S. Customs and Border Protection's acting deputy commissioner, said the asylum system has served as a magnet for illegal immigration, contains too many loopholes and is in desperate need of reform.

But it remained unclear whether the president considers each of the more than a dozen priorities to be non-negotiable or whether the White House sees them more as a starting point for negotiation with members of Congress. "I never understood-I just never got it, how you go from Charlottesville and white supremacists to reaching an agreement with him".
