Trump: My Plan Will Give ‘Three Years of Legislative Relief for 700,000 DACA Recipients’
TRUMP: “Further more, in order to build the trust and goodwill necessary to begin real immigration reform, there are two more elements to my plan. Number one is three years of legislative relief for 700,000 DACA recipients brought here unlawfully by their parents at a young age many years ago. This extension will give them access to work permits, social Security numbers, and protection from deportation, most importantly. Secondly, our proposal provides a three-year extension of temporary protected status or tps. This means that 300,000 immigrants whose protected status is facing expiration will now have three more years of certainty so that Congress can work on a larger immigration deal, which everybody wants, Republicans and Democrats. And our farmers and vineyards won’t be affected because lawful and regulated entry into our country will be easy and that is our plan. Border security, DACA, tps, and many other things, straightforward, fair, reasonable, and common sense, with lots of compromise. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell has pledged to bring this bill to a vote this week in the United States Senate.
