Trump defends immigration stance in tweet

Trump defends immigration stance in tweet

"Because of the Democrats not being interested in life and safety, DACA has now taken a big step backwards". But the White House later rejected it, plunging the issue back into uncertainty just eight days before a deadline that threatens a government shutdown.

Trump continues to demand funding for building a border wall, though what exactly that means is open to interpretation and varies day-to-day. Durbin is blunt. He says he doesn't love making all the tradeoffs Republicans are demanding.

The NAACP is accusing Trump of "lowbrow, callous and unfiltered racism". In a further complication, the group is but one faction on Capitol Hill working on the issue, which took on urgency in September when President Donald Trump reversed DACA protections put in place by then-President Barack Obama, saying Congress should address it.

The introduction comes after a nationally televised meeting with Trump and members of Congress on the future of immigration Tuesday.

As for immigrants from Africa, the president suggested that instead, the USA should allow more entrants from countries like Norway.

Trump reportedly questioned why the US would want to admit more people from "shithole countries". One said lawmakers in the room were taken aback by Trump's remarks.

If Congress strikes a bipartisan deal on immigration that protects DREAMers, adds to border security (but not a physical a wall), redefines chain migration and includes some visa reforms, Trump may like it - or not.

Several people with knowledge of the deal elaborated Friday on some of its parameters, agreeing to speak on the condition they not be named since negotiations were still ongoing. Trump's request covers 74 miles of border wall as part of a 10-year, $18 billion proposal. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said the talks were still ongoing, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) flatly denied a deal existing.

The plan would also effectively end a visa lottery system aimed at promoting diversity.

How Paul Manafort's lawsuit puts Trump in a odd spot
Mueller's authority would give him less leeway to use unrelated charges as leverage against people close to the president. Manafort "laundered the money through scores of United States and foreign corporations, partnerships and bank accounts".

When President Trump made a decision to allow reporters to sit in on a major meeting on immigration policy for almost an hour on Tuesday, he seemed eager to reach a deal in a wide-ranging conversation wide lawmakers from both sides of the aisle.

That's according to two people briefed on an Oval Office meeting held Thursday. Richard Durbin told Trump that under the proposal, a lottery for visas would be ended.

In a Friday morning tweet, the President said, "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country". But neither he nor the White House disputed the most controversial of his remarks: using the word "s--hole" to describe Africa nations and saying he would prefer immigrants from countries like Norway instead. He tweets that it would force the U.S.

Within the borders of the Los Angeles Archdiocese, he said, there will be a humanitarian crisis if DACA ends because an estimated 125,000 young people protected by the program live there. We are now working to build support for that deal in Congress.

The significance of their agreement was initially unclear.

Earlier Wednesday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called the court's decision "outrageous", especially after the meeting aiming to strike a compromise.

Cotton said he's willing to support legal residence for the DACA recipients, with the right to eventually gain US citizenship. Experts say it's necessary to leave time to implement a new policy before Dreamers begin to lose DACA protections in larger numbers after March 5, as thousands already have as a result of Trump's decision. It also would dramatically boost border security and immigration enforcement.

That's according to a spokesman for Arizona Republican Sen.

That's GOP Sens. Cory Gardner of Colorado, Jeff Flake of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of SC and Democrat Sen.
