Trump Backs Grassley Bill, Rejects Swing-Voting Senators' Amnesty

The group of swing-vote Senators announced Wednesday morning they had completed a draft amnesty bill which would deliver just two of President Donald Trump’s four immigration requirements.

But their amnesty announcement came so late in the Senate’s immigration debate that Trump has already announced his support for the bill drafted by Sen. Chuck Grassley and several other GOP senators.

Trump also commended the House bill drafted by GOP Rep. Bob Goodlatte and three other House chairmen.

Democratic leaders are pushing the talking-stick bill because their own DREAM Act proposals by Sen. Dick Durbin and Sen. Graham have only a few GOP sponsors, including Colorado GOP Sen. Cory Gardner.

For example, depending on the circumstances, the agenda can be set by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell or can be tangled up as many Senators push for votes on their proposals.
