House passes bill giving Dreamers path to citizenship

The House voted Tuesday to protect so-called ’Dreamers’ and establish a path to citizenship for more than 2 million immigrants without legal status. The Democratic-led chamber passed the Dream and Promise Act in a largely party line 237-187 vote, with seven Republicans joining all Democrats in voting for the bill. The White House announced Monday it ’strongly opposes’ the measure.

This so easily could have been resolved in exchange for border wall funding, several months ago. But the Democrats didn't want to play ball, then... And the Republicans aren't totally blameless. They could have gotten something done when they were in complete control. Both sides are trying to milk the immigration situation for political points. Just fucking fix it already.
