House Freedom Caucus (HFC) Chairman Mark Meadows said the powerful conservative group is planning to craft a bill aimed at reforming the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) initiative.
President Donald Trump placed a six month limit in September on the Obama-era executive order, which provides a safeguard for more than 800,000 illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children. The measure provides Congress a window to deliver a legislative solution for the program. Meadows told reporters Tuesday the HFC is hoping to put together a working group to begin constructing the measure within the week.
“We’re actually working on legislation. We obviously have a six-month time frame coming up to deal with DACA, and so it’s better that we put some guys on it to work on — work on legislation instead of just waiting back for something to happen,” Meadows said.
The North Carolina Republican said the conservative group is hoping to compose a “multifaceted” plan to deal with immigration-related issues.
“What we’re trying to do is get a consensus among conservatives in what we need to do there,” he said. “What we are doing is trying to get a couple Freedom Caucus folks to look at immigration, DACA, border security, e-verify, all the issues, and figure out the best approach to deal with all of that.”
Meadows said it’s critical they put forward a solution that meets conservative principles as Congress failed to deliver a debt-ceiling proposal consistent with the messaging GOP lawmakers touted on the campaign trail.
