Ruben Navarrette: Not all Dreamers earned legal status

But it also represented a victory for immigration hawks and a seismic shift for immigration policy in the USA, which has long centered on the question of how to stop illegal border crossings, not how to curb legal immigration.

The proposal was panned by the left and the right. The Breitbart News homepage bore a headline that dubbed Trump "Amnesty Don" and Breitbart political editor Matt Boyle said that the proposal showed the president is "kind of becoming a little bit of a loser".

We're less than 30 hours away from Donald Trump's first State of the Union address, which will be the most elegant, best, yuuuuge SOTU in history, of course. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, who is among the Democrats on the ballot in November. "We're working on it from there", she told CNN.

Fresco said there was a "miscalculation" by those on the right that Democrats would swallow changes to the legal migration system in this deal because they had passed previously in broader, comprehensive negotiations. But when he announced an end to DACA in September, he asked Congress to come up with a way to make the program permanent, arguing the young immigrants don't deserve deportation. But there could be a bill that gives everyone just enough. Coons said Democrats oppose the wall.

On "Fox & Friends" on Monday, Perdue said Trump understands what the American people want, and this immigration framework is in total alignment with that.

Ann O'Brien, the director of Community Engagement for Immigration Services' Run for the Refugees, said that she supports a "clean" DREAM Act, which would not include enforcement add-ons such as increased border enforcement or funding for additional U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

This was the first government shutdown to take place under a single party's control of the House, Senate and White House.

Immigration advocates hoped Schumer would see that as badge of honour, but there was anxiety about his resolve.

However, the former Chelsea boss has finally put everything to rest and extended his stay until 2020, citing his pride at leading the club as one of the key reasons to remain.

"I want to be clear: DREAMers are Americans", said Rep. Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., whose guest came to the us from El Salvador at the age of 15 and now works as a technology specialist at Apple. "He had the backbone to lead his caucus into a high-stakes, high risk battle". He has long faced skepticism from some liberals, thanks, in part, to his Wall Street ties. When Todd questioned Trump about what would happen to DACA families Trump clearly stated that every person here illegally must go - including all DACA children AND their families. What no one needs is a restructuring of our immigration system that is unsupported by sound policy goals. They see all sides of the debate, yet aren't able to have one themselves in the eyes of our democracy as it is now structured.

However, it's becoming more and more hard to feel sympathy for those "dreamers", as they have disrupted Capitol Hill the past few weeks with "protests" involving screaming at the top of their lungs in the front lobbies of lawmakers' offices and from every floor in federal buildings. But most Democrats will use the event and their guest selections to highlight concerns about immigration, health, gun violence prevention and sexual misconduct.

The dynamic shifted in January.

Additionally, six other Democrats plan to bring other people affected by immigration policy as their guests, including people who have had a family member deported.

Democrats have already come out against the plan and some immigration groups have blasted the President's plan.

That's okay, though. Trump, Schumer, Kamala Harris, Mitch McConnell and countless others won't have to face what the Dreamers are experiencing.

Earlier this month, The New York Times reported that Pennsylvania GOP Rep. Patrick Meehan paid a former aide with taxpayer funds after she reported inappropriate behavior.
