House Republicans have crafted the framework for a bill granting options to Dreamers in obtaining citizenship through a new visa system, reports Politico. Conservatives are meeting with Paul Ryan to discuss the framework on Friday.

The big picture: A bill has not been drawn up yet, but the framework of one being presented by House Republicans represents a step toward compromise on a key piece of immigration law.

The details: The outline includes two options addressing the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, however, Politico was only able to identify one.

  • The identified option creates a new visa program that Dreamers, and other immigrants, can apply for after earning a certain amount of "points." It would end the visa lottery program President Trump has maligned throughout his presidency.
  • The plan also abolishes the ability for immigrants to sponsor married adult children and adult siblings.
