House Republicans Leak Their Amnesty Plan to NY Times

The Republican House leadership is planning to offer amnesty to DREAMers.
They leaked their intentions to the far left NY Times for some reason.
The Hill reported:

The House GOP’s new immigration framework will include support for a path to legal status for immigrants living in the country illegally, according to The New York Times.

The one-page outline specifically opposes a “special pathway to citizenship,” according to the report.

The GOP’s statement of principles on immigration reform will, however, endorse a pathway to citizenship for children who were brought to the country illegally, according to the report. The outline quotes a passage from House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), who has previously endorsed the proposal.
The principles include caveats as well, including the requirement that the United States secure its borders and current immigration laws are fully enforced before those living in the country are granted legal status.

The GOP principles also express frustration that U.S. universities educate some of the best students from around the world only to see them leave the country because they cannot obtain a green card.

The Times notes that the principles outline how far the GOP is willing to go on immigration, rather than offer a starting point for negotiations.
