Polls show Americans are closer to Democrats than Donald Trump on immigration

President Trump has proposed what he calls a “fair compromise” with Congress on immigration policy, with four main components:

  1. A path to citizenship for DREAMers — unauthorized immigrants who came as children
  2. A border wall with Mexico and increased funding for Border Patrol
  3. Ending the diversity visa lottery
  4. Banning US citizens from sponsoring their adult children, parents, and siblings for green cards …

The fact of the matter is, though, that while relief for DREAMers is wildly popular with the American public, a border wall and reducing immigration levels are not. CONT.
