#Popcorn Moment: The DACA Litmus Test

Details of a compromise have emerged, and it's not good.

The nasty little details of a potential DACA compromise have emerged, and conservatives who supported Trump for is strong stance on illegal immigration are not going to like it.

Bipartisan Senate negotiators have come to terms on a deal to protect "DREAMers," as young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children are known.

The senators, including Arizona Republican Jeff Flake, plan to introduce legislation that would provide $18 billion in border-security enhancements over the next decade — including an immediate $1.6 billion down payment on President Trump's border wall.

That's positive news.

What is not so positive, however, is the requirement for that additional funding.

In exchange for the wall, DREAMers would be granted permanent legal status. The compromise would put them on a 12-year path to citizenship with up to two years credit for time spent with temporary deportation protections under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
