President Donald Trump is pushing for his proposed wall again Thursday night, after rejecting a bipartisan proposal that he criticized in harsh terms. "We have the immediate need to treat these students in a way that doesn't prolong their agony".
Only this time, the ensuing blow-up is raising the risk of a government shutdown that could come as soon as the end of the coming week. "Do we need more Haitians?'" Conservatives are wary, fearing he will strike a soft compromise.
"I think we still have a ways to go", White House legislative director Marc Short told reporters on Capitol Hill.
Trump's remarks "are disgraceful and racist", said Rep. Rosa DeLauro. At a White House meeting with senators of both parties, he referred to nations of Africa as well as El Salvador and Haiti as "shithole countries, and wondered why the USA couldn't attract more immigrants from Norway".
The aide said that instead, the White House is working with a different group of lawmakers - the four No. 2 House and Senate Republican and Democratic leaders who began meeting on Wednesday. The Washington Post first reported on Trump's comments.
That deal would include beefed up border security and other changes to immigration law in exchange for permanent protections for Dreamers. The people were not authorized to describe the conversation and spoke on condition of anonymity. But an $18 billion wall? No.
DACA shields almost 800,000 young immigrants from deportation by allowing them to work and study legally in the United States.
The clean bill idea didn't originate with, but with Democratic Sen. Durbin said that in exchange, people from African countries that have benefited from that lottery would be given other access to visas.
The president suggested that instead, the US should allow more entrants from countries like Norway.
"We're willing to give a little when it comes to border security but we're not willing to give away the whole hog", said Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ).
Multiple groups in Congress are working on their own solutions for immigration as they race to pass a spending bill before the government runs out of funding Friday.
The significance of their agreement was initially unclear. The Senate's top Democrat said that despite the ruling, lawmakers and the White House must drive toward a bipartisan deal that would permanently shield them from deportation.
"Why don't we get more people from Norway?"
Trump's remarks were remarkable even by the standards of a president who has been accused of racism by his foes and who has routinely smashed through public decorum that his modern predecessors have generally embraced.
We saw the art of the deal, or did we?
As of September 2017, there were roughly 690,000 young immigrants protected by DACA, but thousands have already begun losing their protections in recent months.
Durbin and Republican Sen.
Texas immigrants and their advocates said they're pleased that a federal judge issued a preliminary injunction keeping the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program in place. She said other border security items would be smarter.
"His comments were disgusting, but not surprising", said Sen.
What's Congress doing about this DACA dilemma? . "You've got a mountain and rivers, you got a violent river", said, adding that he would "like to build [it] under budget, ahead of schedule". "The exact word used by the president, not just once, but repeatedly".
Jeffress says Trump has a constitutional responsibility as commander in chief to protect the U.S. "Except perhaps to delay?"
When Republican senators visited President Donald Trump last week at the White House, they posed a significant question: Why is no one from the administration in charge of immigration negotiations? Indeed, if they tried to do so, it might be an occasion for showing the way to breaking a gridlock too often insisted on by leadership or by factions in both parties. The truth is, the wall has become a shiny object that distracts partisans from what they claim to want in the immigration debate.
