Cronkite News: Trump immigration and border plan slammed as racist

WASHINGTON – A White House plan to give a path to citizenship for 1.8 million immigrants in exchange for a border wall and tougher immigration policies was attacked from all sides Friday, called racist by one side and a shameless giveaway by the other.

The one-page “Framework on Immigration Reform and Border Security” released late Thursday would double the number of immigrants eligible for deferred deportation, to about 1.8 million people nationally and 50,000 in Arizona, according to Migration Policy Institute estimates. It would also create a 10- to 12-year pathway to citizenship for those people.
