Lawmakers in the Senate failed to pass a bipartisan deal that would create a path towards citizenship for the Dreamers. It was a demoralizing end to proceedings after weeks of intense negotiations. The bipartisan deal would have also provided $25 billion for the wall.
Lawmakers from both sides of the political divide are calling for a more sober immigration debate. The lawmakers said on Sunday that efforts should be made to legalize young immigrants often referred to as “Dreamers” as well as provide funding for tighter security on the southern border.
President Trump’s efforts to shut down the Dreamers program have hit another snag. A federal judge has blocked the president’s attempt to tear down DACA, a program was first established during Obama administration.
