President Trump’s Letter to House and Senate Leaders

President Donald J. Trump’s Letter to House and Senate Leaders & Immigration Principles and Policies October 08, 2017 For Release I am pleased to transmit to you my Administration’s principles for reforming our Nation’s immigration system.

Sen McConnell: Immigration Reform is Low Priority

From Breitbart: Soon-to-be Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says immigration reform will be a low priority next year in the wake of President Obama’s executive action on immigration. Speaking to Roll Call, McConnell said that while the current immigration system is “broken,” Obama’s recent executive actions — including offering legal status and work permits to nearly 5 million illegal immigrants — makes the prospect of moving quickly on reform next Congress far-fetched. “Well I can tell you for sure that what the president did after the election makes it unlikely that it is an early item for this conference.
