Trump revives push for limits on immigrants bringing family 20.2.2018 General News
When the US government approved Ricardo Magpantay, his wife and young children to immigrate to America from the Philippines, it was 1991. By the time a visa was available, it was 2005, and his children could not come with him because they were now adults. More than a decade later, his children are still waiting. Magpantay gets worried when he hears the White House is aiming to limit the relatives that immigrants-turned-citizens can sponsor, a profound change to a fundamental piece of the American immigration system. "It is really frustrating and it is very dreadful for me, because after a long wait, if this will be passed, what will happen for them?" said Magpantay, a 68-year-old mechanical engineer in the Southern California city of Murrieta. "I won't be able to bring them forever." For the past 50-plus years, family reunification has been central to US immigration law. Those who become naturalized citizens can bring spouses and minor children and petition for parents, adult children

'Dreamers' left in lurch as Senate rejects immigration bills 16.2.2018 deccanherald.com
The US Senate today rejected a slew of immigration reform proposals, including one backed by President Donald Trump, leaving hundreds of thousands of young migrants who were brought to the country illegally as children in limbo. The Senate also shot down a bipartisan deal on immigration offered by the Trump administration which had offered to provide citizenship to some 1.8 million Americans so-called "Dreamers" in exchange of USD 25 billion for construction of a wall along the Mexican border and other security measures. Senators, in a series of votes, failed to muster enough votes for either of the immigration plan to move ahead. In fact, the bill backed by Trump lost 39-60 votes. If passed, the bill would have paved the way for permanent legal status to 1.8 million young legal immigrants and provided USD 25 billion towards building a wall along the Mexico border. The White House supported the bill would have also curbed family-based immigration and ended diversity lottery visa. But the bill fell far ...

US Senate rejects Trump's 'immigration plan' 16.2.2018 General News
The United States Senate on Thursday decisively rejected legislation based on President Trump's framework for an immigration deal in a 39-60 vote.The measure spearheaded by Senator Chuck Grassley, Republican of Iowa, needed 60 votes to clear a filibuster but failed to meet the mark.The rejection of President Donald Trump's plan was bipartisan.While the Democrats refused its get-tough approach to legal immigration, many conservative Republicans opposed its pathway to citizenship for 1.8 million young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.The White House rewrite of the nation's immigration laws would have bolstered border security, placed strict new limits on legal migration and resolved the fate of the so-called 'Dreamers', according to The New York Times.The measure would have severely limited "chain migration," more commonly known as family-based immigration, and would have ended the diversity visa lottery programme, two priorities of the President that are anathema

Senate rejects immigration plan by bipartisan senators 16.2.2018 General News
A divided Senate rejected a bipartisan plan today to help young "Dreamer" immigrants and parcel out money for the wall President Donald Trump wants with Mexico, as Republican leaders joined with the White House and scuttled what seemed the likeliest chance for sweeping immigration legislation this election year. The vote came after the White House threatened to veto the measure and underscored that the issue, a hot button for both parties, remained as intractable as it's been for years. Even the focus on Dreamers, who polls show win wide public support, was not enough to overcome opposition by hard-line conservatives and liberal Democratic presidential hopefuls, neither of whom want to alienate their parties' base voters. The vote was 54-45 in favour, but that was short of the 60 that were needed for approval. Eight Republicans bucked their party and supported the measure while three Democrats abandoned their own leaders and opposed it. The chamber planned to vote next on a ...
