Immigration Bills Fail in Senate
Everyone loses. The Senate failed to approve two different immigration bills offering protection for immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children while upping border security. Earlier, a group of senators had come to a deal they hoped could garner the necessary 60 votes: $25 billion for border protection over 10 years and a path to citizenship for DACA recipients. President Donald Trump, meanwhile, said he’d veto any plan other than his own hardline option. With both now off the table, it seems the “Dreamers” are out of luck.
