House Democrats are proposing immigration reform bills in a piecemeal fashion. They have proposed bills that would reform the DACA rule, and deal with permits for temporary workers. US Senator Chuck Grassley likes the approach, but it’s missing an important component.
Grassley says immigration reform won’t be solved unless border crossings are brought under control.
Grassley says the lack of border security is creating a problem right now at the US’s southwest border.
The House strategy is to address the immigration issues that can be addressed with the least opposition. Other issues, like a path to citizenship, will be more difficult to reach agreement, if any.
