The Wall Street Journal: Trump’s proposal: Citizenship path for Dreamers in exchange for wall funding, immigration restrictions

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump proposed a path to citizenship for nearly 2 million undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, if lawmakers agree to create a $25 billion fund to expand barriers along the Mexico border and makes other changes to the immigration system.

The proposal, presented to Senate leaders on Thursday, would additionally restrict family-based immigration, which is the channel by which most immigrants have come to the U.S. for the past 50 years. The White House plan also calls for an end to a lottery-type program that randomly awards 50,000 visas annually to foreigners.

Trump was in Davos, Switzerland, for the World Economic Forum on Thursday.
