NPR compares Republican, Democratic DACA bills
National Public Radio’s Geoff Bennett reports on September 29, 2017:
“Republicans who might have been leery of supporting the bipartisan Dream Act got a more conservative-friendly option this week in the form of a new bill dubbed the SUCCEED Act (Solution for Undocumented Children through Careers, Employment, Education and Defending our nation).
“This, I believe, is a fair and orderly method for providing a permanent solution for the DACA children,” Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., told reporters Monday during a Capitol Hill news conference.
“Tillis unveiled the legislation along with co-authors Sens. James Lankford, R-Okla., and Orrin Hatch, R-Utah.
“The SUCCEED Act is the latest proposal floated by lawmakers in the weeks since President Donald Trump announced his decision to pull the plug on the Obama-era DACA policy (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals).”
