President Donald Trump released an outline of an immigration plan Thursday that would provide a pathway to citizenship for as many as 1.8 million undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children in exchange for a handful of hard-line measures, including funding for a border wall and changes to family-based immigration.

BAL Analysis: While Trump’s framework for the ongoing immigration negotiations provides a glimpse of where the White House stands on some key issues, it only offers hints at what final legislation might look like. The changes to family migration in particular would mark a dramatic change to the country’s legal immigration system. BAL will continue following the immigration negotiations and will provide clients with updates as more information becomes available.
