In exchange, about 1.8 million younger illegal immigrants-the number of people eligible for DACA under the program's original guidelines-would be offered a path to citizenship.
"No one who supported President Trump or Republicans in general thought that a proposal like this would come from this White House", he said Friday on "Happening Now".
A vote on the White House plan, while anathema to Democrats, would technically fulfill McConnell's pledge.
The New York Times reported Thursday that White House officials said the list of "enhanced security measures" were nonnegotiable, and, "t$3 hey warned that if no deal is reached, DACA recipients will face deportation when the program fully expires on March 5".
It may be recalled that last September, Trump proposed plan to rescind the Obama-era program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Daca), which enabled qualifying undocumented immigrants to obtain temporary legal status in the USA and be temporarily protected from deportation.
Using the derogatory nickname "Cryin' Chuck" that Trump coined past year, the president mocked Schumer for being "unable to act on immigration". "They want the ransom for these children to be $25 billion dollars for a wall when we have all the needs that we have for infrastructure in our own country", she said. While the proposal's pathway to citizenship for almost 2 million undocumented immigrants will earn plaudits from many Democrats, the framework also includes several hardline immigration reforms that Democrats may find hard to swallow.
"I had suggested when [Trump] called that we just have four people in the room - myself, my chief of staff Mike Lynch, his chief of staff Gen. [John] Kelly and the president", the top Democratic senator said.
"This is no longer a DACA fix, this is a mass amnesty bill full stop", Federation for American Immigration Reform government relations director RJ Hauman toldThe Daily Caller.
Trump offers 'Dreamers' a path to citizenship, wants other immigration curbs
The DACA protections apply to about 700,000 people, but White House officials said there were at least that many illegal immigrants who qualified for the program but did not sign up for it.
"We will not and can not support this White House immigration proposal". On Wednesday, Trump said he was open to a pathway to citizenship for the younger immigrants.
Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., applauded the White House for presenting "a solid framework" for reform and urged Congress quickly to begin a debate "focused on solutions, not partisanship".
Pro-immigration groups said it would reduce overall immigration by half. Richard Durbin (D., Ill.), a lead negotiator, said Democrats have not been briefed by the White House.
"DACA itself didn't have a pathway to citizenship", said Sen. (It's propsed cuts in legal immigration alone could add up to 40 percent.) If Democrats balk at betraying other immigrants to save this one group, Trump can turn around and blame them when he starts deporting the DACA recipients. This is a good starting point for Congress to get to work. "Doing so is inconsistent with the promises we made to the men and women who elected us". "Ignoring our many immigration problems is a form of amnesty that must end".
For its part, Breitbart, which went to the mat for Trump in the Republican contest in 2016, is now referring to him as "Amnesty Don".
And Lorella Praeli, with the American Civil Liberties Union, called it "a hateful, xenophobic immigration proposal that would slash legal immigration to levels not seen since the racial quotas of the 1920s, eliminate legal immigration channels for African countries, and spend $25 billion for a harmful, wasteful border wall and an increase in Border Patrol and ICE agents".
