House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy mentioned Sunday President Trump’s just lately proposed immigration framework has “a lot of merit” however a last resolution would require compromises from all sides.
“I think whatever we do is not going to pass with one party or the other,” he mentioned when requested if the plan may just move the House with simplest Republican votes.
“If you want to solve this and not be at this in another five or 10 years, you want to do it correctly and I think that bill has a lot of merit to solving the problem,” he mentioned.
“To solve this problem, we’re going to have to have compromise,” Mr. McCarthy mentioned. “No one’s going to get a hundred percent of what they want.”
He mentioned the president “went there” and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer is now seeking to “back away.”
Among different issues, the plan would supply an eventual trail to citizenship for approximately 1.eight million unlawful immigrants, impose new restrictions on family-based chain migration, and strengthen border safety, together with $25 billion for a U.S.-Mexico border wall and different infrastructure.
