Republican senators reject the DACA deal plan proposed in the Senate by the bipartisan ‘Gang of Six.’
In a joint statement Thursday, Senators Chuck Grassley, Tom Cotton, and David Perdue said the proposal “isn’t serious.”
The GOP senators rejected the idea of providing immigration status to millions of illegal aliens.
Previously, the bipartisan ‘Group of Six’ proposed a deal that protects childhood arrivals from deportation.
GOP senators say the Democrats are resorting to coercive tactics in order to push their political goal of keeping illegals in the U.S.
“Sadly, our good faith offers have consistently been rejected by Democrat leadership,” explained Senator Grassley. “Instead, they’ve decided to engage in a game of brinkmanship…as the Democrats see it, it’s take it or leave it, their way or the highway.”
Senators Grassley, Cotton, and Perdue said they will reject any DACA deal unless it includes measures to end chain migration, abolish the visa lottery, and boost border enforcement.
