The Wall Street Journal: New bipartisan immigration bill would leave out Trump’s priorities

WASHINGTON — A bipartisan pair of senators said they would introduce a new immigration bill Monday in a fresh effort to move negotiations toward a narrow agreement that leaves out more contentious proposals sought by President Donald Trump.

The government’s current funding expires at 12:01 a.m. Friday. While lawmakers expect to pass another short-term spending bill to keep federal agencies open, they are increasingly frustrated by the gridlock that has prevented them from striking a long-term deal on either immigration or spending levels. Immigration has become entangled in the spending negotiations ever since Trump last year ended an Obama-era program that protects young people who were brought to the U.S.
