DACA Still In Limbo

 |  By: Mike Opperman

The attempt by the U.S. Senate to pass meaningful immigration reform stalled on Thursday when neither a bipartisan Dreamer plan or President Trump's plan garnered the required votes to pass. This left the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) still in limbo, says reporters at Politico.

A bipartisan proposal from Senators Rounds (R - S.D.) and King (I - Maine) would have included a path to citizenship for 1.8 million undocumented immigrants and add $25 billion for border security, according to Politico.

As for the House of Representatives, Politico says immigration hardliners are growing uneasy as they work to get a floor vote on Goodlatte's (R - Va) immigration bill that would establish the H-2C program. Analysts say that even if the bill passes the House, it won't get enough votes in the Senate.
