White House Dismisses Bipartisan DACA Deal From Senate Group

The White House on Thursday did not deny his remark but issued a statement saying Trump supports immigration policies that welcome "those who can contribute to our society".

U.S. District Judge William H. Alsup in San Francisco on Tuesday rejected the government's argument that the courts don't have the authority to review whether the president improperly made a decision to terminate the program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, that was started by former President Barack Obama.

Ahead of the meeting, Republicans and Democrats remained at an impasse over the scope of a deal and what, exactly, should be included in it. Sen.

Durbin and Graham were told on Thursday that Trump would not agree to the deal.

During a White House event honoring the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Trump ignored shouted questions from reporters about whether he would apologize or was a racist.

The American Civil Liberties Union says Trump "has been consistently honest about the white nationalism behind his immigration policies". White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said no deal has been reached and said the White House would keep working toward an agreement.

Democrats see their leverage on a spending deal as the natural place to have a fight over DACA and their other priorities, with Republicans concerned that they need a deal on spending caps to avoid sequestration, the automatic spending cuts that are set to kick in on January 21. The conservative says he expects Republicans and Democrats to reach compromises on enhanced border security short of a continuous physical wall, changing the visa lottery, ending so-called chain migration that allows in family members in favor of better access for skilled workers.

The agreement would offer a pathway to citizenship for the Dreamers, but only after at least 10 years, a source familiar with the negotiations told Business Insider.

The senators say the deal also revamps a visa lottery and rules helping immigrants' relatives enter the U.S. After he phased out DACA, Trump said he would give Congress until March 5, 2018 to find a permanent solution for this group of immigrants. "I am hopeful that we can make some real progress on solving this problem". Michael Bennet (D-CO), and Sen.

A related initiative, according to congressional aides, would shore up the Temporary Protection Status program that has been under attack by the Trump administration.

In September, Trump announced that he would end DACA, which President Barack Obama created by executive order in 2012. Any agreement would likely be put into a spending bill that would need 60 votes to pass the Senate and would also need bipartisan support in the House, where there have also been different ideas floated as to how to address DACA and border security.

Republican Sen. Tom Cotton, a key Trump supporter and immigration hardliner, called the bipartisan proposal "a joke", Bloomberg News reported.

In a meeting with lawmakers Tuesday, Trump issued a four-item wish list: DACA, a border wall, replacing family-based immigration with a merit-based one and eliminating the diversity visa.

Graham, however, fired back at Cotton over his negotiation strategy.

Dana Milbank writes a column for the Washington Post. "I know nothing else other than America". Cotton has a proposal that gets a Democrat.

Lawmakers have been trying to strike a deal that would protect them in exchange for meeting some of Trump's demands on beefing up border security, funding a wall, altering rules that allow immigrants' family members to come to the US and ending the nation's diversity lottery for visas. "You have to have security". That's because roughly 22,000 eligible DACA recipients were unable to successfully renew their DACA, some due to Hurricanes Irma and Harvey which affected hard-hit Texas and Florida. Democratic Senator Dick Durbin, who attended the meeting on Thursday said on Friday that Trump used all of the language that has been attributed to him in media reports.

"We're willing to give a little when it comes to border security, but we're not willing to give away the whole hog and farm", Rep. Ruben Gallego of Arizona told Politico.
