Trump: Democrats Have Abandoned Dreamers

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Friday accused Democrats of abandoning young immigrants after the Senate rejected three separate immigration bills a day earlier. The president’s tweet came a day after senators rejected three proposals that would have resolved the fate of the “Dreamers” — young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children.

Trump, however, refused to back any proposal other than his own, which was sponsored in the Senate by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa). That measure would have created a pathway to citizenship for the Dreamers but also sought to curb legal immigration. It received only 39 votes in the Senate.
