New immigration proposal pours money into border security to secure GOP support

  • $6.5B amount allocated to border security in the Senate Gang of Eight’s original immigration proposal
  • $30B new allocation for border security under an amendment proposed by Republicans and passed bipartisanly

Notably, this amendment was the less conservative of two proposed—Sen. John Cornyn’s amendment, which failed, would have required a 90% apprehension rate of would-be immigrants at the border before a path to citizenship would be available for undocumented workers. source

And in about three decades, no single group will constitute a majority of the country as a whole.
