Force Votes: House Republicans and Dreamer Immigrants

force votes: But Trump told Fox & Friends in an interview that aired Thursday that unless a bill includes a wall, and I mean a wall, a real wall, and unless it includes very strong border security, there'll be no approvals from me, according to The Chronicle Herald. Trump said the United States had the worst immigration laws in the entire world by far and said he wanted a comprehensive deal that included all of his priorities. Moderate House Republicans are pushing a deal that could lead to citizenship for young Dreamer immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally. I think it's time to get the whole package, he said. Moderates trying to force votes on the issue gained their 21st GOP signature Wednesday. Trump's comments, taped Wednesday, came as immigration talks are underway among House Republicans, with moderates seeking a way for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants to stay permanently in the U.S. But conservatives say they have no interest in giving what they call amnesty to people who came illegally.
