Trump Plan Offers Citizenship Path To 1.8 Million Immigrants
Written by broebling on January 26, 2018
The White House said that President Donald Trump is proposing a plan that provides a path to citizenship for 1.8 million of the “Dreamer” immigrants, tighter restrictions on legal immigration and $25 billion in border security. Senior White House officials offered a preview of Trump’s immigration framework Thursday, casting it as a compromise that could pass the Senate. The proposal represents a reversal for the president, who once promised to eliminate an Obama-era program protecting immigrants brought to the U.S. as children and now in the country illegally.
