Republican and conservative voters — including President Donald Trump's base supporters — overwhelmingly approve of providing a path to citizenship for so-called Dreamers in exchange for increased border security, according to a national poll released this week that drew praise from Colorado business groups.
Colorado U.S. Sens. Cory Gardner and Michael Bennet introduced immigration legislation Wednesday that includes a path to citizenship for certain young immigrants and funding for President Donald Trump's border wall.

Colorado Sens. Michael Bennet and Cory Gardner said Thursday an immigration package they've crafted with four other senators — the bipartisan "Gang of Six" — meets demands set at one point by President Donald Trump and could offer a way forward as Congress scrambles to find the votes to avert a looming government shutdown, although leading Republicans and the White House have so far given the proposal a cold shoulder.
President Donald Trump Friday morning sent a message to Congressional Democrats: don’t even think about asking for federal authorization of DACA unless you’re also willing to pay for the border wall and a host of other immigration changes.
