Earlier this year, the president offered to give a chance for legal status not only to nearly 700,000 “dreamers” – those undocumented immigrants [sic] brought to the United States as children – through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program but to a million others who were either too young to apply or chose not to. (I presume that, to get legal status or a path to citizenship, all 1.7 million would have to show, as DACA recipients do, that they have never been convicted of a felony or a serious misdemeanor.)Why not pass a simple bill: an appropriation for the wall, alongside an eventual path to citizenship for DACA recipients and long-term legal status for the rest?
