Trump managed to enrage everyone with his immigration reform proposal

Posted January 27, 2018

In a comprehensive reform that will be formally presented next week, Trump also asked Congress Thursday to eliminate the popular "green card lottery" program and severely restrict family immigration, steps analysts say could cut in half the more than one million foreign-born people moving to the country annually.

But the plan - drafted by Stephen Miller, the president's hard-line domestic policy adviser, and John F. Kelly, the White House chief of staff - was immediately rejected by Democrats, immigration advocates, and some Republicans, with some describing it as nothing but an attempt to rid the country of immigrants and shut the nation's borders.

"The White House unfortunately has proven unreliable and wildly unpredictable", Democratic Senate leader Chuck Schumer said on the Senate floor.

Details of the deal are still unclear at this time.

Sanders added that the framework would provide a permanent solution for the young immigrants, who will benefit from the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme, which US President Donald Trump had scrapped it earlier, the Hill reported.

Current upswing in the global economy "furnishes an ideal moment to act on a range of multilateral challenges", Obstfeld said. In an environment of financial market optimism, ensuring financial resilience is imperative, the report said.

In exchange, Trump's plan would dramatically overhaul the legal immigration system. The framework would scale back the visa lottery system and limit legal immigration through close family ties. While the proposal's pathway to citizenship for almost 2 million undocumented immigrants will earn plaudits from many Democrats, the framework also includes several hardline immigration reforms that Democrats may find hard to swallow.

"People don't understand-the one problem I think the current occupant of the White House-they don't understand that sanctuary cities is [sic] what helps law enforcement".

"This statement represents presidential leadership on immigration that will allow us to solve a hard problem", he said.

Despite his alleged "sh*thole" comments on allowing in immigrants from certain countries, President Trump is supporting the pathway to citizenship for all 1.8 million Dreamers.

Mark Krikorian, the executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, encouraged his Twitter followers to tweet photos of burning Make America Great Again hats in protest of Trump's supposed capitulation.

But Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.), who is regarded by many as an anti-immigration hardliner, praised the White House's proposal.

And the outcry from both sides doesn't bode well for the prospect of Congress reaching a deal to address DACA before it expires March 5 - the arbitrary deadline Trump put on the program a year ago.

Pro-immigration groups said it would reduce overall immigration by half. Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton is someone who's always been pushing for these changes to legal immigration that are included in this framework. Trump estimated that would cost $5 billion, but the White House said it was subject to further discussion. "I truly appreciate President making it clear that he supports a path to citizenship for DACA recipients".

But Schumer says Trump called him later Friday, before the shutdown began, and the negotiations derailed. "And [Democrats] did agree to a $25 billion wall, of which I'll have a lot of money left over, because I don't need $25 billion to build a wall", the president said.
