The Wall Street Journal: Trump takes hard line on immigration as Senate releases plan

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Wednesday urged senators to vote against any immigration proposal other than his own plan, courting a showdown with Republican and Democratic senators who oppose the White House’s desire to curb family-based migration and would like to cut a narrower deal.

A bipartisan plan released late Wednesday takes steps toward Trump’s goals, reflecting a new concession to the president by barring immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally from sponsoring their parents for citizenship. But the bipartisan plan, which also provides $25 billion for Trump’s proposed wall, falls short of meeting his demands. Voting could begin as soon as Thursday, forcing politically tough choices for both parties.
