Partisan politics may hinder compromise on DACA

More from this show

Congress has until March to pass legislation regarding Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients, a deadline some experts fear will not be made due to extreme partisanship.

Resolutions for childhood arrivals is tricky, says Constantin Querard, president of Grassroots Partners, because many Republicans and Democrats are unwilling to compromise in regards to amnesty. The few that are able to compromise, Querard believes, would need to find a way to work with each other across the aisle and oppose the rest of their party.

One of those willing to work in a bi-partisan manner is Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Arizona. “We shouldn’t punish kids for actions taken by their parents,” said Flake. “That’s really a bedrock principle in our judicial system.”
