    McCain, Coons to introduce new immigration bill that omits wall funding: report

    McCain, Coons to introduce new immigration bill that omits wall funding: report



    February 4, 2018

    . John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Christopher Coons (D-Del.) will introduce immigration legislation on Monday in an effort to reach a budget deal before the federal government's current funding runs out on Friday, The Wall Street Journal reported.


    The bipartisan piece of legislation provides recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, commonly known as "Dreamers," an opportunity for citizenship while ordering a study to figure out what border security measures are needed, according to the Journal.


    DACA aimed to protect from deportation certain immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally when they were children.


    Senate aides told the Journal that the plan would provide people who have resided in the U.S. since Dec. 31, 2013, with legal status and a path to citizenship.


    The Journal reported that the legislation is similar to House legislation introduced by Reps. Will Hurd (R-Texas) and Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.).o“It’s time we end the gridlock so we can quickly move on to completing a long-term budget agreement that provides our men and women in uniform the support they deserve,” McCain said in a statement to the Journal on Sunday.


    “While reaching a deal cannot come soon enough for America’s service members, the current political reality demands bipartisan cooperation to address the impending expiration of the DACA program and secure the southern border,” he continued.


    The legislation reportedly does not contain immediate funding for the U.S. southern border wall, however, which was one of President Trump's key demands, and is likely to draw the ire of some Republicans.


    The plan would also provide more people with a path to citizenship and legal status than Trump's original plan did.


    The White House announced last month that the president would endorse a path to citizenship for as many as 1.8 million young immigrants in exchange for border wall funding and sweeping changes to the immigration system.


    The federal government shut down for three days in January after Senate Republicans and Democrats were unable to reach a deal on a government spending bill.


    Democrats said they would not support the measure because it did not include a solution to DACA, which Trump moved to end last year.


    The Hill has reached out to the offices of McCain and Coons for comment.

    McCain is the reason we had Obama. McCain is the reason we have massive illegal immigration. McCain is the reason we have free trade treason. McCain is the reason our country was sucking hind tit behind every country in the world for decades until we elected Donald Trump 45th President of the United States. McCain is a national disgrace, and he has always been one.

    He and his whole family make me sick.

    Screw you guys, do we all have the word stupid engraved on our foreheads?

    We don’t need anymore studies.

    We need a wall and we need to control our out of control illegal immigration nightmare.

    I was on chemo 18 weeks and it did not distort my brain.

    McCain needs to get out of the people’s government and focus on spending quality time with his family of what’s left of his remaining short time on earth

    McCain was the GOP nominee of 2008, when Mitt Romney would have been the stronger choice. I don't know how Mitt Romney would have viewed the topic of illegal immigration at that time, but I know he is not nearly so stubborn as the old POW is.

    Exactly! McCain is impaired and very ill, I don't think he should be involved in making laws that affect the country. I don't see it a an act of "courage" to keep on, I see it as a refusal to relinquish power. IMO
