Leading negotiators on the immigration package — Senators. Lindsey Graham and Dick Durbin were both invited to the White House this past Thursday to meet with Trump on their new agreement to combine Dreamer protections with tougher border security and new restrictions on immigration.
They were however surprised to find out that a group of Republican lawmakers would be joining the meeting, including Senators Tom Cotton and David Perdue, as well as Repersentive Bob Goodlatte, all of whom are staunch immigration hard-ballers who are opposed to the Graham-Durbin framework, which they deem to be too soft on enforcement.
“Graham and Durbin expect to have a meeting, they show up and there’s this anti-immigrant cast of characters there. And that was obviously designed by Stephen Miller to try to kill the deal,” said a senior Democratic aide.
