Senators rejected four bills, including immigration plan trump

WASHINGTON – the U.S. Senate has rejected all four proposals on immigration after weeks of debate on the issue of the legal status of young immigrants who can 5 Mar be under threat of deportation.

The approval of the Senate has not received two bipartisan proposals that provides young immigrants a path to citizenship and strengthening the border management, project of large-scale immigration reform President Donald trump and the plan against cities that don’t cooperate with Federal immigration authorities.

Fewest votes won the trump plan – a total of 39 out of 100.

“I am disappointed that we failed to find a solution, but that doesn’t mean our work is over”, – wrote in “Twitter” Republican Cory Gardner.

“I am very concerned about the fate of the “dreamers” across the country, which now awaits an uncertain future,” – wrote in “Twitter” Democrat Chris coons, using a term that is sometimes used against immigrants illegally imported into the country of their parents.

Before nearly 800,000 “dreamers” were sheltered from deportation under the Program deferred action for immigrant children (DACA), which allowed them to work and study in the United States.

Last year, trump canceled the program – it will end on March 5.

The vote in the Senate has passed after verbal battles between the White house and a group of lawmakers from both parties supported the compromise plan, which was thought to have the greatest chance of being accepted.

In a statement, the White house argued that the plan “will only generate a flood of new illegal immigrants” and would “undermine the safety of American families,” “weakening border security and undermining existing immigration laws.”

The bill was introduced with the support of 16 senators from both parties provided a path to citizenship for “dreamers”, increase funding for border protection at $ 25 billion and the focus of the immigration authorities on criminals, threats to national security and those who illegally enter the country since July.
