Senators: Trump to roll out immigration plan in speech 'as early as this week'

President Trump will deliver a speech as early as this week outlining an immigration reform plan that would bolster border security and create a more merit-based system, according to GOP senators who attended a meeting with Vice President Mike Pence Tuesday.

“The president is going to be giving a speech on it maybe as early as later this week,” Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, told the Washington Examiner as he left a closed-door meeting with fellow Republican senators and Pence. “So I’ll be interested to see how he rolls this out.”

Pence, along with Trump senior adviser Jared Kushner, and senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, briefed GOP senators on the plan, which would include both border security elements and the changes to bolster merit-based immigration.

It's a shame it's not going anywhere.

Keep building the wall!

Keep changing regulations!

It's all you can do.

Kushner was supposed to come up with an immigration 'plan', so, unfortunately, this is probably much of his doing.  I'll be listening for these words; amnesty, compromise, and asylum.  I'm hoping to hear the words, "no and hell no" to all of them!

Another speech and another promise?
