House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte is expected to introduce his immigration bill today, allowing those under DACA to receive "three-year renewable legal status" in addition to providing $30 billion for a border wall, cutting off citizens and green card holders from sponsoring extended family and ending the Diversity Visa Lottery, according to a WSJ op-ed he released Tuesday with Reps. Michael McCaul, Raul Labrador and Martha McSally.

Why it matters: This bill mirrors the Grassley-Cornyn bill introduced on the Senate side in December, and includes most, if not all, of Trump's immigration demands.
