I was looking for updates and came across this, they are talking about the Goodlatte Bill. https://www.realclearpolitics.com/ar...l__136028.html

Per the article:

First, the Goodlatte amnesty provision is extremely narrow. It would only allow illegal immigrants who currently have “deferred action on the basis of being brought to the U.S. as minors [to] get a 3-year renewable legal status allowing them to work and travel overseas.” In other words, there would be no permanent status or path to citizenship."

I don't really see the Dems wanting to bite on that one. I know DACA is hoped to be a foot in the door for extended family illegal aliens of the DACA which I don't see happening under that proposal.

Numbers from the article: 1.1 million eligible for DACA, 790,000 signed up, but currently there are 690,000. I know that some have been eliminated having lied on their applications, others committed crimes, and who knows what else may have eliminated them, with any luck, maybe they went home!
