Highlights:

Starting Point: “A year ago, Tom Cotton and I started with a very conservative approach to solve the legal immigration problem once and for all. We warned about the visa lottery and we said we needed an end to chain migration.”

Americans Agree: “Two-thirds of Americans want to end chain migration and the visa lottery, fix the DACA problem, and build that wall to make our border secure.”

Reasonable Framework: “President Trump has laid out a framework that is ingenious. We will find out if people on both sides are really serious about solving this immigration problem. I think we have the framework to actually get it done.”

Conservative Wins: “The President wants an end to DACA, but he has also given conservatives what he promised—a safer and securer border with a wall, an end to chain migration, which is what’s caused us to be here, and an end to the security issues with the visa lottery.”

Eyes On The Prize: “We conservatives have to keep our eyes on the prize, and the prize is ending the problems that got us here in the first place.”
