Rep. Denham: Immigration Reform Bill Does Not Give Amnesty To DACA Recipients

Republican Congressman Jeff Denham said only two more signatures are needed for the vote on immigration reform.
In an interview Tuesday, the California representative said all but three Democrats have signed onto the legislation effort.
He added, there are also two more Republicans who have agreed to vote ‘yes’ on the bill.

Denham said the immigration bill would not automatically grant amnesty to DACA recipients.
Instead, the legislation would provide illegal immigrants with a pathway to citizenship over a 12-year period, and would also increase funding for border security.
“Ultimately, we have to find a solution here that includes border security,” explained Rep. Denham. “We again want something that the president will sign into law — he’s been very clear that he needs border security as a part of this, and we’re working in a bipartisan way to get that done.”
Denham said illegal immigrants who enlist into the military would be given citizenship priority.
