White House rejects senate immigration proposal, seeks changes

President Donald Trump is demanding a border wall as a condition of grudgingly giving in on preserving the DACA program but a new poll shows Americans priorities are the opposite of his

Jefry Darian, a Coachella Valley Dreamer, was only 8-years-old when he arrived to the United States from Honduras.

On Tuesday, Democrats and Republicans announced that they would work together on a new immigration bill to protect border security, chain migration, the visa lottery system and the Daca. She said the White House would keep working with Congress to try to get something done.

Details of the plan were not immediately available and the proposal promptly met some resistance.

Sens. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) and Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) released a joint statement.

Republican Lindsey Graham of SC, a member of the six-senator negotiating group, said after presenting the proposal at the White House that he hoped it would lead to "a breakthrough" on immigration.

Trump had indicated on Tuesday during a bipartisan meeting with lawmakers at the White House that he would sign just about any immigration deal that they put on his desk. But he thrust that commitment into doubt briefly on Tuesday when he appeared to suggest - during an extraordinary public negotiation with members of Congress at he White House - that he would deal with the so-called DREAMers first and come back to the wall later.

The Wall Street Journal quoted him Thursday as saying in an interview that Mexico can pay for a wall through the North American Free Trade Agreement.

For some of the estimated fifteen thousand undocumented young people in Kern County brought to the United States as children, hope of action in Washington is beginning to fade.

He would do great damage to the country, make Republicans into enablers and undermine our democratic institutions.

The Jan. 19 spending deadline and the need for 60 Senate votes gives Democrats leverage.

"The fact remains - the only way to guarantee legal status for the dreamers is to pass DACA protections into law and do it now". Many conservatives would balk at providing "amnesty" to parents who brought their families across the border illegally.

COULTER:.And deport these DREAMers who are the worst of the illegals. Also under consideration, according to congressional aides, is a plan to restructure the "diversity" immigrant visa program so that it no longer operates via a lottery system. Even afterward, it remained unclear where the president stood on some of the key issues but members on both sides of the aisle said that the gathering helped move stalled talks forward by narrowing the parameters of any legislation. But Republican lawmakers and the president have added harsh elements that include border security enhancements and cuts to various legal immigration programs, making it hard to bargain with Democrats over the terms of a "clean" immigration bill.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders called the decision "outrageous" and insisted that Congress must ultimately decide the fate of the DACA program.
