WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) spoke with Tucker Carlson on Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson Tonight about the Secure and Succeed Act, legislation he has co-sponsored that mirrors President Trump’s immigration framework which resolves DACA, strengthens border security, eliminates the visa lottery, and ends extended-family chain migration.

Senator David Perdue Discusses Immigration Framework Bill On Tucker Carlson Tonight (1)

Highlights:

Continuing The Conversation: “This actually started a year ago when Tom Cotton and I began the conversation with the RAISE Act. We have an opportunity now to fix the immigration system. When President Trump decided a couple months ago that President Obama had done the incorrect thing by taking executive action on DACA, President Trump put it back on the plate of Congress to solve.”

Following The Framework: “We’ve been working feverishly on the priorities President Trump laid out a few weeks ago when he had Republicans and Democrats at the White House discussing how to fix the legal immigration system. That’s where we are with this proposal.”

Broad Support: “This proposal is supported by the American people. Two-thirds of Americans want to solve the DACA situation. They also want border security with a wall, end of chain migration, and the end of the visa lottery. Over 70% believe immigration should be based on the worker and the immediate family alone. We have a bill the President would sign and assure we aren’t back here again in a few years.”

Bipartisan Ideas: “It will be really interesting to see if Democrats vote against this solution which they’ve called for before. Over the last 30 years, Democrats have asked for these same facets the President has outlined in this framework.”
