Senate defeats first of four immigration bills

SENATE DEFEATS FIRST OF FOUR IMMIGRATION BILLSp15154127.png

ㅤ”Senators on Thursday defeated a compromise immigration bill that tried to pair legal protection for Dreamers and about $3 billion in border security funding, far short of what President Trump was demanding.
ㅤThe bill was the first of four immigration proposals the Senate was expected to vote on Thursday, all of which were at risk of failing.
ㅤThe first proposal was offered by Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Chris Coons, D-Del., and was seen by Republicans as the weakest of the four offerings up today. Most Republicans and President Trump are looking for $25 billion in border wall funding, plus other measures to tamp down on immigration levels.”
