The group of swing-vote Senators announced Wednesday morning they had completed a draft amnesty bill which would deliver just two of President Donald Trump’s four immigration requirements.

I am asking all senators, in both parties, to support the Grassley bill and to oppose any legislation that fails to fulfill these four pillars – that includes opposing any short-term “Band-Aid” approach.
