The White House's immigration plan will offer a path to citizenship for 1.8 million immigrants living in the country illegally, according to details shared by administration officials on a call for allies that Axios listened to. The administration proposal will be shared with Congress today, the officials said.

The big picture: The plan is "a compromised position" that includes "some extremely generous provisions that should make Democratic support to get to 60 votes a given," White House adviser Stephen Miller said on the call.

By the numbers: That includes establishing a path to citizenship for 1.8 million younger immigrants with work or education history and "good moral character." That number, substantially larger than the 800,000 DACA recipients, includes individuals who did not apply for DACA but met its requirements. "That is a very dramatic concession from the White House that should ensure 60 votes for the framework," Miller said.

The concession on DACA comes with the ability to terminate the status of individuals seen as a threat to national security based on criminal history, Miller said.

The White House's plan also includes...

  • An end to the visa lottery program and chain migration.
  • A "$25 billion dollar trust fund for the wall system."
  • "Historic investment in northern border security."
  • "An appropriation for filling personnel deficiencies" in border patrol and at the Department of Homeland Security.
  • "Same treatment of illegal aliens, regardless of country of origin."
  • "Closing loopholes in the system that make it almost impossible to deport illegal immigrants," such as the court backlog or the "catch and release" policy through which immigrants are released while awaiting a hearing.

Several sources provided Axios with the dial-in-number for the call in which Miller laid out the plan’s details.

Trump tightens screws on ByteDance to sell Tiktok

President Trump added more pressure Friday night on China-based TikTok parent ByteDance to exit the U.S., ordering it to divest all assets related to the U.S. operation of TikTok within 90 days.

Between the lines: The order means ByteDance must be wholly disentangled from TikTok in the U.S. by November. Trump had previously ordered TikTok banned if ByteDance hadn't struck a deal within 45 days. The new order likely means ByteDance has just another 45 days after that to fully close the deal, one White House source told Axios.

In her first sit-down interview since being named Joe Biden's running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris talked about what she'll do to fight for women if elected VP, and how the Democrats are thinking about voter turnout strategies ahead of November.

What they're saying: "In a Biden-Harris administration women are going to be a priority, understanding that women have many priorities and all of them must be acknowledged," Harris told The 19th*'s Errin Haines-Whack.
