Trump Bashes 'So-Called Bipartisan DACA Deal' As 'Big Step Backwards'

By Lucia Mutikani and Pete Schroeder

President Trump faced widespread condemnation Friday for reportedly referring to Haiti, El Salvador, and African nations as "shithole countries" during an immigration meeting with senators Thursday. United We Dream members are knocking over the game board by insisting Democrats instigate a government shutdown.

In a speech announcing his candidacy, he said he would "build a great, great wall on our Southern border".

Trump has denied making the remarks, but Illinois Democratic Sen.

"Everybody wants to find a deal there, myself included", said Republican Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina, chairman of the stoutly conservative House Freedom Caucus. And I will have Mexico pay for that wall. "He can't afford to make a mistake". Many have only known America as their home and are viewed sympathetically in opinion polls and among most lawmakers. During the campaign, Trump described the border wall as "big", "high", and "beautiful".

Then, in the first week of 2018, The Wall Street Journal reported that Trump clarified what he had in mind: $18 billion for his "big, handsome wall".

"It's gotta include the wall".

During a closed-door meeting to discuss the proposal, Trump reportedly questioned why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa.

"As he considers the utility of walls (and promises), @realDonaldTrump should consider that "Never Trump" was toothless, but "Former Trump" will bite", Coulter wrote on Twitter. He doubled down on draconian enforcement, setting deportation records for removing and returning immigrants. About 800,000 people could face deportation without the program.

After federal court order, Trump admin resumes accepting DACA renewals
This week the administration provided lawmakers with a DHS document with more information about each of its priorities. For that, he has his critics. "It's really hard to have your family separated", Azua said.

"If they're going to be trying to add the extra aspects of security and the lottery process and all of that, I don't foresee there being a DACA bill passed by March", said Villalobos. "We both want some things here". Obama's health-care plan had zero bipartisan support, while reworking immigration had considerable enthusiasm on both sides of the aisle.

He also said: "Sadly, Democrats want to stop paying our troops and government workers in order to give a sweetheart deal, not a fair deal, for DACA". But the practical deadline for Congress to do something to fix DACA is likely January 19 - the day the government is scheduled to run out of money unless a new spending bill is passed.

"I was definitely surprised because I saw it on my facebook feed".

"Until we see the written text of a bill that's being discussed by Congress, it is premature to frankly stress too much, or put too many eggs in one basket", said Betti.

"However, we caution against introducing unrelated, unnecessary, or controversial elements of immigration policy - especially those that jeopardize the sanctity of families or unaccompanied children - into the bipartisan search for a just and humane solution for the 'Dreamers, '" he said. And on Thursday, with major help from allies in the White House, Cotton got a clear win.

"Somehow Chuck Schumer still gets to dictate, 'Oh, I get $60 billion more in non-defense spending, and I get to determine ..." That's when Durbin huddled with members of the Senate bipartisan immigration group he's been working with for months.

Alsup said the reasoning to end the program was based on a misinterpretation of the law and voided the president's decision. But what he didn't mention was the pressure he was putting on them behind the scenes to send him a nativist version of comprehensive immigration reform. It would reduce legal immigration levels by 25 percent, block federal grants to "sanctuary cities" that don't cooperate with federal authorities on immigration issues and restrict the number of relatives that immigrants already in the USA can bring here.
