The Hill: GOP looks for Plan B after failure of immigration measures
February 16, 2018
Republicans are looking for a Plan B on immigration after a series of proposals were rejected Thursday in the Senate, leaving little time to act before nearly 1 million immigrants who came to the country illegally as children could face deportation.
Sen. John Thune (S.D.), the No. 3 Republican in the Senate, is floating a proposal to extend the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program indefinitely in exchange for $25 billion for border security.
President Trump has opposed any deal that does not also include changes to two legal immigration programs, however.
