Trump to Release Immigration 'Framework' Monday That Includes DACA Fix

President Donald Trump will release an immigration framework Monday that "represents a compromise that members of both parties can support" and includes border security and a permanent DACA solution, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday.

"We encourage the Senate to bring it to the floor," she told reporters at the daily briefing.

"This framework will fulfill the four agreed-upon pillars: securing the border and closing legal loopholes, ending extended family chain migration and providing a permanent solution on DACA.

"After decades of inaction by Congress, it's time we work together to solve this issue once and for all," she said. "The American people deserve no less."

Sanders would not say whether the plan would include a pathway to citizenship for as many as 700,000 young illegals affected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, the stalemate over which in the Senate last weekend caused a two-day federal government shutdown that ended Monday.

She also declined to say whether the blueprint would include funding for a wall on the southern U.S. border with Mexico or any particulars, only telling reporters "you'll see more of those details laid out in the framework Monday."

President Trump, she said, "wants to lead on this issue."

The White House announcement comes as a bipartisan group of about three dozen senators were scheduled to meet Wednesday in a new effort to develop compromise legislation on immigration that would include a DACA fix.

Republican Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn said he hoped the effort would "get people thinking about a framework that might actually work."
