Senators Reach Tentative Immigration Agreement

Colorado Senators Cory Gardner and Michael Bennet reached a potential agreement with a bi-partisan group of 4 other senators concerning immigration, border security, and the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA. After the agreement was reached, the group released a statement saying, President Trump called on Congress to solve the DACA challenge, and after months of work, the group had reached an agreement in principle to addresses border security, the diversity visa lottery, chain migration/family reunification, and the Dream Act, all outlined as areas of concern for the president. Details of the compromise have yet to be released, and it is believed that president Trump will ask for changes before a final agreement is reached. At a press conference yesterday, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said no deal had been made, but the administration would keep working toward a potential immigration and border security agreement.
