White House to Release Trump’s Immigration Deal Demands

The White House said Wednesday it will roll out legislative guidelines on immigration next week that meet all of President Trump’s four core requirements.

“Based on negotiations, the White House will release on Monday a legislative framework that represents a compromise that members of both parties can support,” said White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

“We encourage the Senate to bring it to the floor,” she added.

The framework, Sanders said, was compiled after “dozens” of meeting with Democratic and Republican lawmakers.

It will bolster border security and close legal loopholes, end family-based chain migration, cancel the visa lottery system and provide a permanent solution on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

“We want to see a legislative package that … can pass both the House and the Senate and make its way to the president’s desk so that we can fix our immigration system,” she said.

She did not go into detail on any of the core components and parried a question about whether it would offer a pathway to citizenship for “Dreamers.”

“Well, if I told you now it would kind of take away the fun for Monday,” she said.

The debate over preserving protections for young immigrants from deportation under DACA and funding a wall on the Mexican border derailed talks in the Senate to pass a temporary spending plan to keep the government open last Friday.
