Immigration Reform Fails in the Senate. What's Next?

The Senate ended its immigration debate this week in a stalemate.
Lawmakers failed to pass legislation based on President Trump's proposal that would have made major reforms to the legal immigration system, built a border wall and provide citizenship to about half of the Dreamers in the country.
The measure was one of three proposals the Senate voted on that would have addressed the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program, but it received the least support. Just over one-third of the Senate — 39 senators — voted for it, including 14 Republicans, likely killing the measure for good.
