Legislation proposed by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., to address people in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is not likely to succeed, The Daily Signal reported Monday.

McCain and Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., introduced the plan Monday, The Washington Post reported.

The McCain-Coons bill would provide a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers — people brought to the U.S. as children by illegal immigrants — who have lived in the U.S. since Dec. 31, 2013, which would be a larger pool of undocumented immigrants than the 1.8 million that Trump supports legalizing, The Post reported.

The bill does not address curbing family-based chain migration or any revisions to the diversity lottery program, which are two top priorities for President Donald Trump and conservative Republicans, The Post report said.

The Daily Signal said that Republicans would, however, be likely to favor McCain's offer in the bill to provide an annual $110 million grant for five years to improve coordination between officials at the federal, state, and local level.

Any DACA deal that does not also include border security and the "desperately needed wall," would be a "total waste of time," Trump tweeted Monday.
