Senator Rob Portman floats new imigration bills

A key Republican senator is floating a new proposal to essentially codify President Obama’s 2012 executive order creating the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in order to break a standoff with Democrats over immigration.

The idea, floated by Sen. Rob Portman (R-Ohio) in private conversations with Republican and Democratic senators, would give legal status to immigrants who entered the country illegally as children in exchange for stronger border security.

It would stop short of creating a path to citizenship for the immigrants known as Dreamers, and help deliver on President Trump’s promise to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. It also would cut out changes to two other legal immigration programs that have been part of a White House framework proposal.
