White House flatly rejects amnesty deal proposed by John McCain

“It takes a special kind of person to write a bill that is worse than Graham-Durbin.”
White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said Monday that a new bipartisan immigration deal put together by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., was worse than the Graham-Durbin proposal President Trump rejected weeks ago.
“I have to give it to Senator Coons and McCain, congratulations, because it takes a special kind of person to write a bill that is worse than Graham-Durbin. They did it,” Gidley said, calling the McCain proposal “incredible.”
Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Chris Coons, D-Del., put forward a bill Monday that would grant amnesty in the form of permanent legal status to so-called “dreamers,” but would not authorize spending for a border wall. The McCain-Coons plan would grant amnesty to any “dreamer” who has been in the United States since 2013, a “larger pool of undocumented immigrants than the 1.8 million Trump supports legalizing,” the Washington Post reports.
