House GOP Floats Draft Immigration Bill

“Republicans are floating a draft bill that would end family separations as the U.S. plans to reopen a tent shelter to house migrant children,” the Washington Post reports.

“A draft text of the Republicans’ bill also calls for visas for young undocumented immigrants known as ‘dreamers’ as well as billions in funding for President Trump’s border wall. Conservatives and moderates are reserving judgment on the legislation ahead of expected votes next week.”

NBC News: “The Trump administration has selected Tornillo, Texas, for the construction of tents to house the overflow of immigrant children, many of whom have been separated from their parents under a new ‘zero tolerance’ policy.”
