Proposal by Sens. Kyrsten Sinema and Thom Tillis seeks rare bipartisan agreement on immigration legislation
Roughly 2 million "Dreamers" would get a path to citizenship in exchange for stronger border security measures under a loose blueprint for an immigration deal circulating among Senate offices.
The proposal by Sens. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., and Thom Tillis, R-N.C., is still very much in flux, according to a Senate aide and immigrant advocates familiar with the talks.
But it reflects movement toward agreement on a topic where bipartisan consensus is rare at best. And it comes during the lame-duck session that advocates and lawmakers say is likely the last opportunity to pass immigration legislation before Republicans control the House in January.
The agreement would legalize undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children who face uncertain futures in the U.S. amid legal challenges to the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, according to the Senate aide and immigrant advocates. It would also shore up asylum processing at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Republican lawmakers have typically hesitated to legalize any immigrants at a time of historically high border encounters, but lawmakers are considering other elements that could bring them on board — including an extension to Title 42 pandemic-era border expulsions and additional detention beds, immigrant advocates said.

No. Dump em all.
No pathway to citizenship or anchor babies. They only way to achieve that is deportation.
I’ll vote for Trump if he’s an option, but that’s it. No more Clowns 🤡 for me.
Read the article. The whole sentimental “dreamers” narrative is growing a bit thin in light of the unchecked flood at the border. Yet the GOp is willing to agree to some pretty modest protections in return for caving
Anyone who thinks Sinema is some sort of centrist can plainly see the truth now.
They won’t enforce security. It is all just a lie.
THe “new” GOP is the Party of Spelunkers ... experts at caving (even to those who would destroy them ...)
Schemers claim they ended up in America through “no fault of their own.” Deport them and send them home and don’t blame them. Same thing.
Once again, citizenship comes first, border security later on.
Why don’t we build a wall to keep them out. That would easily be cheaper than this proposal.
The globalist, Deep State Leftists have absolutely ZERO intentions of EVER enforcing any so-called agreed upon border “protections”.
I believe the Demonrats when back on the deal with Reagan as well.
The GOP’s greatest enemy is the GOP. Morons.
Has not worked for the past 1,242,647,921 so-called bi-partisan deals.
The assholes lie. If they try this again, will we finally get the word and make them worry. Everywhere they go?
doesn’t sound like a secure border to me.
Amnesty 1986 redux. It will “work” just as well as it did last time.
Here’s the deal: Give the Democrats everything they want in exchange for paper promises that they will follow the law next time, but of course they will not. How about NO.
