Dreamers anxious about families despite their own potential path to citizenship

"The reason they have a compelling case for amnesty before all enforcement measures and in place and legal immigration curbed is that not only did they arrive here as minors but they voluntarily came forward and provided their information to the government", he wrote in a blog post Thursday. The proposal includes tougher restrictions on legal immigration and $25 billion for a border wall.

The state's two USA senators and four congressmen - all Republicans - have expressed sympathy for "Dreamers" - illegal aliens who grew up in the United States.

US President Donald Trump, who has come into power with the alleged anti-immigrant slogan, has surprisingly proposed a legislation that could provide citizenship for almost 1.8 million undocumented immigrants.

Republican Senator Tom Cotton, a hardline conservative, called Trump's framework "generous and humane, while also being responsible".

The other 1.1 million would be immigrants who did not apply for Daca but are eligible for the scheme.

Between 1996 and 2000, the study, "Multiplying Diversity" said there were 36,160 new immigrants to the U.S. and 184,830 sponsored family immigrants.

Anti-immigration activists also assailed the plan, though for the opposite reason. "I'm anxious about us moving forward", Graham said. As of now, the White House estimates this bill could cover up to 1.8 million people. Let us accomplish a bold and lasting solution for childhood arrivals, and yes, let us deliver enhanced border security too.

"The Trump administration's anti-immigrant framework is an act of staggering cowardice, which attempts to hold the #DREAMers hostage to an unmistakable campaign to make America white again", House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said in a statement Thursday night.

Trump announced past year that he was doing away with the program, but he gave Congress until March to come up with a legislative fix. Not exactly like the physical structure that President Trump wanted constructed on the southern border of the country, but an addition to the current security of our borders nonetheless.

"The president gave us an outline earlier and well, the president is the president, he can do what he wants", Kennedy told Business Insider.

Moderate Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said he was "very encouraged" by Trump's surprising words, which the president made late Wednesday in impromptu comments to reporters.

If passed by Congress and signed by then-President Obama, the Gang of Eight amnesty would have given a pathway to US citizenship to the majority of illegal aliens in the country, of which there are 12 to 30 million. A deadline they say is actually February 8, as it takes several weeks for a DACA application to go through, leaving those who are looking to apply or renew their status vulnerable if the new legislation doesn't happen by then. "I want to get the problem solved correctly", he added.

In a written statement, U.S. Rep. James Lankford said he supports the citizenship pathway Trump described. Sen. "Members on both sides of the aisle will look to this framework for guidance as they work towards an agreement".

Arkansas United Community Coalition reacted to the news with what it called "mixed emotions and caution". This seems to have at least partially paid off, with limits on family-based immigration (which Graham has dismissed as having "no viability") remaining part of the president's freshly released immigration proposal.
