Congress weighs leaving Dreamers in limbo another year

Congress is still not hundred percent decided about the Dreamers and they finally seem to end up in an unfinished manner. The decision regarding the dreamers is still pending and there is a possibility that it faces a delay for one more year. The lawmakers are actually grasping for a proper solution for the immigrants who are undocumented and were brought to the United States when they were very young. One temporary option that they are looking forward to is that a temporary extension for about a year regarding the legal protection of immigrants along with a little bit of financial protection or funds for border security.

Senator Lindsey Graham mentioned that the decision regarding the dreamers might be heading to a temporary fix currently and he referred to Congress as a pretty dysfunctional one which is the reason for this heading towards a temporary fix and not a permanent one. Lindsey Graham was one of the very few who publicly acknowledged the fact that there are high chances of a temporary fix on the matter of the dreamers.

He also stated that this can prove to be a real loss but that this is what is the most likely thing to happen currently. Some of the senators are already expressing their contempt for a yearlong patch as a critically misguided one and this particular plan would actually result in keeping the immigrants under tremendous fear and uncertainty at the same time. But the senators also mentioned that the lawmakers of Congress have time till the 5th of March 2018 as the deadline as per the president of the United States Donald Trump for saving the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

It is a fact that Congress has repeatedly struggled to keep the light on regarding the matter of immigrants where some of the lawmakers are of the viewpoint that a temporary fix for the young undocumented immigrants should come into existence presently. The lawmakers would be returning to Washington in this week with another shutdown of the government emerging after the 8th of February 2018 and a solution of the matter of the dreamers is just quite a distance. This could be the reality that could make a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals programs stopgap increasing appealing in nature. There are a lot of similar examples for the immigration programs which are getting extended.
