    > hard-line immigration priorities

    Hard-line has negative connotations that seem unwarranted.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hardline:

    > being absolutist and sometimes authoritarian. The hardline position is often extremist and uncompromising.

    It makes it out like he is unwilling to negotiate and uncompromising but I don’t see evidence of that.

      Hi Jessie, thanks for your comment. What would you suggest?

    The piece finishes with an emotional appeal which seems to favor one-side of the debate. The last 5 paragraphs are also negative for Trump.

    The piece should finish with a balanced summary.

      Hi Jessie, it’s common journalistic practice to include a voice of someone affected by the issue in question – a very emotional one in this case – at the end of a news piece.

      “The last 5 paragraphs are also negative for Trump.” What do you mean by negative?

      The last 5 paragraphs are reporting Democrats’ responses and a Dreamer’s reaction to the White House’s proposals. Whether they reflect “negatively” on President Trump may be a matter of where you fall on the political spectrum. Higher up, I included statements of support for the proposals from high-ranking Republicans. Later, I also included Republicans’ reactions to the deal which, in my opinion, are as damning (if not more) of President Trump as those made by Democrats.

    Hallo George and team … suggest an explainer phrase, perhaps after first or second mention of Dreamers: ‘so-called because of a failed attempt to deal with their situation, the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (Dream) Act’.
    All in the interests of leaving no questions hanging, and because Dreamers is a fanciful word.
    All best
    Angela
