GOP accuses Dems of holding budget deal hostage over DACA

Obama instituted the program to protect young people whose parents brought them into the country as minors when they entered the USA without legal permission.

Those who seek permanent status would have to follow existing pathways, such as marrying a USA citizen or having a company sponsor an immigrant visa.

"To me", Trump responded, "a clean bill is DACA and security".

"An issue of this magnitude must go through the normal legislative process", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement to Fox News Wednesday.

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program has shielded the immigrants, who entered the U.S.as young people, from deportation.

"If you only build a wall, only a 'wall, ' without using technology, individuals, drones, observations, etc., you're not going to secure the border", Sen.

Trump last week asked Congress for $18 billion for the first phase of the wall along the border with Mexico, whose officials said they will not pay for the barrier.

Kelly often discussed being open to meeting with Democrats as much as Republicans, and spoke of sympathy toward the DACA population. How can the GOP give Trump a win on the wall without alienating Democrats from a bipartisan solution on DACA? "I think that's basically what Dick [Durbin (D-IL)] said".

Trump calls author of book on him 'a total loser'
In a series of tweets on Friday, he denied ever speaking to Mr Wolff for the book and lashed out at his one-time adviser Bannon . US President Donald Trump , in what else but a tweet, called the author of a new tell-all book + on him "a total loser".

With 11 days to go before a threatened government shut down, Republicans involved in negotiations on a spending deal are becoming increasingly pessimistic that an agreement can be reached.

But it also includes a number of changes Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has said she needs to stop the new surge of illegal immigrants who have figured out how to game the current system.

"We have to have security", not just a clean DACA bill, McCarthy insisted.

The kind of "wall" many Republicans believe is realistic varies greatly from the hundreds-of-miles-long concrete barrier that Trump may have imagined when he campaigned for president.

"I hear so much about earmarks - the old earmark system - how there was a great friendliness when you had earmarks", Trump quipped. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Jon Tester of Montana, as well as Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas, who frequently votes with Republicans on immigration and border issues - a sign that the White House is looking to pick off as many Democrats as it can even if it can't work with the party's key negotiators.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday appeared to support a comprehensive immigration reform bill but then backed away from the idea during a bipartisan meeting with senators.

"To throw down a list from the hard, hard-line wing of the White House is not a very fortuitous or smart thing to do", he added.
