This Meeting Between Trump And Republicans Could Be Key To The Future Of Dreamers
Donald Trump is set to meet with Republicans on Thursday to discuss details of a potential legislative measure on Dreamers, multiple sources stated.
Trump sent out an invitation to multiple Republicans, and according to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and others familiar with it, at least half a dozen senators plan to attend the meeting.
“The purpose of the meeting is for us to hear from the president his views of some of the thoughts that we have,” Grassley said in an interview Tuesday. “I can’t say there’s much progress being made because we’ve got to sit down with the Democrats. There’s no way a partisan bill is going to pass.”
Senate Republicans are looking to come up with a legislation that will be approved by both conservatives and Democrats.
Democrats want a legislation on DACA to be passed before the end of the year. Trump announced that the DACA program will be cut starting March of next year.
