Pres. Trump proposes path to citizenship for 1.8 million

WGN TV

WASHINGTON — The White House says President Donald Trump is proposing to provide a path to citizenship for 1.8 million younger immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. The plan is likely to get a mixed reaction on Capitol Hill.

Senior White House officials are offering a preview of Trump’s immigration framework, casting it as a compromise that could pass the Senate. 

Trump’s plan would dramatically scale back family-based migration, limiting it to spouses and underage children, and eliminate the visa lottery program.

It would also include $25 billion for a border wall — and unspecified billions more for additional immigration enforcement measures.

The officials are speaking on the condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to publicly discuss the plan before its release.

  1. The White House says President Donald Trump is proposing to provide a path to citizenship for 1.8 million younger immigrants living in the U.S. illegally.

    Is the key word here not, “illegaly”? Another prediction of the dump presidency come true. This is nothing more than him going back on yet another campaign promise and he’ll try to push it off as him making a “great deal, great deal. Believe me, nobody makes better deals than me”. #anotherpuppetpolitico.

  2. “Trump’s plan would dramatically scale back family-based migration, limiting it to spouses and underage children,…”

    NO, DRAMATICALLY SCALED BACK WOULD BE ZERO.

  3. I’ve got a idea for the 1.8 million: get the hell out, properly and legally apply for entry, then wait for a response.
    How is the term “illegal” so difficult to understand? If I rob a circle k at gunpoint, it’s illegal and I am imprisoned. How can so many be so stupid that they would defend a known criminal ?

  4. Wah, wah, wah, trumpet blowers. Ready to admit you got chumped and accept there ain’t NO way out except duking it out? Welcome to OUR world, the one in reality. Keep going to the ballot box or make ready to use the one that will make a difference. Or sit down and stfu.
