The following excerpt is from an article that originally appeared on Liberty News Now
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), who had promised earlier that what was expected to be a free-for-all immigration debate has kept a firm hand on the wheel so far. McConnell indicated on Tuesday that the debate would be concluded at the end of the week. Therefore, if the Congress fails to resolve the issue within the next 48-72 hours, the immigration reform will fall short once again.
The proposal set forth by the GOP members is in line with President Donald Trump’s four-point immigration plan. So far, McConnell has influenced the process in the upper chamber significantly.
The proposal by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), Sen. is also backed by McConnell. Several other Republicans, including Tom Cotton (R-Ark), would codify President Donald Trump’s move to restrict the family-sponsorship visas as well as the diversity visa lottery program.
