House leaders to try to sway reluctant business community on immigration deal

  • President Donald Trump delivers his State of the Union address in January. He used the speech to lay out the

And asked if Hillary Clinton's endorsement sway their vote, just a quarter said they would be enthusiastic (9 percent) or comfortable (14 percent) with a candidate backed by the former presidential contender, while almost half said they would have reservations (12 percent) or be uncomfortable (37 percent) based on her support. He said he was unclear what the pathway to remaining legally after that would be.

On Thursday, Speaker Paul Ryan called that petition "pointless", but reiterated that progress is being made. Another member of that group, Rep. Dave Brat, R-Va., said a proposal has been discussed but cautioned that there are "tons of moving pieces to it".

And Trump has shown recent interest in making border security and immigration key issues in the upcoming Midterms.

Several Democratic candidates, particularly women, were among the big winners in Tuesday night's "Super Tuesday" primary elections in eight states including California, races that are said to be good indicators of the potential results of November's midterms. "We will absolutely have all 218 (signatures needed) and probably a lot more than that", Denham told reporters.

"I'm not anxious about the discharge petition".

He said the conservatives' proposal involves a merit system, but said he was unfamiliar with its details.

Immigration and what to do about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals executive order needs a solution, but the Senate probably won't bring it back on the floor without a bill that President Donald Trump would be willing to sign, Sen.

There are an estimated 11 million to 12 million of these people.

"This was their offer to us and it's something we can agree to but not until we see it on paper", Denham said.

While most of the negotiators say they are heading home for the weekend, they believe a deal is within sight. He said leaders would work toward a draft that resembles Trump's demands on the issue.

Both sides have referred to the special visa as a "bridge" to citizenship for Dreamers.

Party leaders and conservatives oppose the moderates' drive.

E3 2018: BioWare Intends to Return to Mass Effect in the Future

Nearly half of voters, 48 percent, say they are more likely to vote for a candidate for Congress who "would promise to provide a check on Donald Trump".

In exchange for providing possible citizenship for Dreamers, Trump wants full financing for his wall with Mexico.

Still, members emerged from the meeting at odds with one another and how to move forward with a real bill that a majority of Republicans can get behind.

Minnesota is the only state in the country where more Democrat held seats are competitive (3) than Republican held seats (2).

Divided on immigration, House Republicans are huddling privately as leaders try pushing them toward consensus on the issue.

Only eight of those 51 seats are now held by Democrats, while 43 are held by Republicans.

The major hang-up in GOP talks has been how to offer citizenship to young immigrants brought to the US illegally as children. He said there is still some concern among his members that this program could still be interpreted as a "special pathway" to citizenship, which would make it hard to sell to conservatives.

Denham says that under the proposal from the conservative House Freedom Caucus, young immigrants could get a new visa to stay in the US for eight years.

The so-called dreamers - immigrants brought into the country illegally as children by their parents under the proposed Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act - are among the core problems in the immigration reform debate.

Only 15 of the 99 competitive seats are now held by Democrats, while 84 are held by Republicans.

A recent court decision in one state-Pennsylvania-threw out those old gerrymandered district boundaries and forced new, more Democrat- friendly boundaries onto the state's 19 seats in the House of Representatives, which in turn helped put eight seats now held by Republicans-and only one seat now held by a Democrat-into the "competitive race" category.
