Immigration talks prove difficult

The negotiators of Congress and the White House are publicly approaching persistently towards the shielding of a huge number of immigrants from being deported. But on the other hand, behind the scenes, the Republicans and Democrats appear to be struggling more than ever before on a plan that can earn the signature of the president of the United States Donald Trump and the backing of bipartisan from Capitol Hill.

As per the negotiators who are of the viewpoint that it is the major obstacle said that the White House has not yet provided them with the details to a bipartisan group of key senators on what exactly the border security and immigration restrictions want in return for the help they provide to the dreamers. In one of the potentially threatening signs for the deal two of the Senate Republicans who had been in the talks with the Democrats released an unusually hopeless statement about the lack of progress in private negotiations. This began after US president Donald Trump made the announcement last fall that he would be killing the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

GOP Senators Thom Tillis of North Carolina and James Lankford of Oklahoma said in a joint statement that over the time period of the last weeks they have negotiated a lot in good faith with Senate Democrats on a DACA agreement. But he also stated that unfortunately all of their discussions on border security and enforcement with Democrats are much further apart and that is key to get a bipartisan deal on DACA. They simply cannot accomplish the solutions the country needs and a lot of families deserve as well.

On the other hand, a small circle of House Republicans has gone very villainous and are preparing a conservative bill which is meant for strengthening the negotiating hand of Donald Trump against the Democrats chances of which is extremely low in the Senate. Behaving in a different manner is the latest sign that even as both sides say they are very anxious for a deal, the controversial politics of immigration may be extremely difficult for overcoming along with potentially major consequences for both parties and also not to mention those who still wonder whether they will be able to work and live in the United States in a legal manner for any more time or not. Most of the terminations of DACA will be beginning in the month of March, although some permits have already expired.
