AURORA, Colo. (CBS4)– Rep. Mike Coffman has proposed an alternative to DACA that he believes will allow more time to find a solution without resulting in mass deportations.
Coffman, a Republican representing Colorado’s 6th Congressional District, has proposed the “Bridge Act,” a three year proposal.
A federal judge has sided with President Donald Trump in the battle over DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
The judge says Trump’s plan to end it is legal, but he hopes the president and Congress will work on a long-term solution.
The deadline Trump imposed for a new plan from Congress was Monday, but there still isn’t a plan.
