GOP senators to introduce immigration plan mirroring Trump framework

Source: The Hill

A group of GOP senators are preparing to introduce an immigration plan that lines up with President Trump's framework as the Senate barrels toward a heated debate over the issue.

Seven GOP senators, led by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), will file the bill, known as the Secure and Succeed Act, on Monday.

"Our proposal is supported by the President, whos come a long way to reach a compromise. This is the only Senate proposal that has any chance of passing the House and being signed into law," Grassley said in a statement.

The legislation mirrors Trump's framework by offering a path to citizenship for roughly 1.8 million immigrants brought into the country as children illegally in exchange for $25 billion in border security.

2. I think the Repubs won't vote for citizenship unless they can claim something in return.

Whether that's a wall, a mandatory e-verify policy, or whatever, i think they'll demand a price in blood for giving a path to citizenship for dreamers.

And the House won't pass a clean Dream act under any circumstances.
