Republicans Draft Immigration Bill That Would End Family Separations

HeadlineJun 15, 2018
H1 republican bill to end immigrant child separations

House Republican leaders have released a draft of an immigration bill that would vastly increase funding for a heavily militarized U.S.-Mexico border wall and sharply curtail the number of documented immigrants allowed into the U.S., while providing a path to citizenship for young undocumented DREAMers. The draft bill would also end the Trump administration’s policy of separating migrant children from their parents. It’s an apparent concession to growing outrage over the practice, which has seen immigration and border agents rip children and even babies out of the arms of their mothers and fathers.
