WH Says Press 'Lucky' To Be Allowed Into Trump Immigration Meeting

10 January 2018

Texas Republicans have more at stake than anyone as Washington's border security deliberations drag on.

Lawmakers could run into a problem though since Democrats may want to attach a legislative solution for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program for so-called "Dreamers" but President Trump has said recently he would only agree to such legislation only if it includes border wall funding.

Trump only this week became more active in trying to broker a deal.

The White House has already disputed this. A framework for a compromise is expected next week. At one point, California Sen.

House Republicans said they planned to soon introduce legislation to address border security and the young immigrants.

Yet Democrats and Republicans are still far apart on border security and other immigration provisions that would be needed to clinch a deal on the matter.

Trump, in the Tuesday meeting, emphasized the need for immigration reform to be bipartisan, noting that the plight of Dreamers is a dilemma that concerns both Democrats and Republicans.

Hillary Clinton carried the districts represented by Hurd, Culberson and Sessions districts in 2016, and all three races have Democratic challengers raising serious money.

"We want to make sure that we have interior and border enforcement", he said.

The Texas ruling only concerned whether the lawsuit can move forward, and was not a decision on the merits of the controversy. "We hope that the Supreme Court will reverse its own unfortunate judgment earlier", Brinda Karat told the English daily.

"You folks are going to have to come up with a solution", the President said at one point.

Kelly often discussed being open to meeting with Democrats as much as Republicans, and spoke of sympathy toward the DACA population. And Republicans control both the Senate and House.

Congressional leaders have until March 5 to restore deportation protections and work permits for DREAMers after President Trump ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program established by President Barack Obama. "They've made a decision not to go forward on that until we get closer or get a DACA deal".

In addition, Trump said he is seeking an end to the U.S.'s visa lottery program, as well as immigration based on extended familial relations, as part of a comprehensive package. But a report from The New York Times on Monday makes it clearer than ever that Trump cares less about border security and more about erecting a giant, meaningless monument to his ego. A House committee approved a version of the senator's bill previous year.

Asked during the White House briefing by CNN's Jim Acosta whether Trump is demanding border wall funding in exchange for a DACA deal, Sanders would only say: "The President wants border security". But the basic framework of Cornyn's plan could offer Democrats their best shot at a DACA deal.

He said serving the "needs of American families, workers, and taxpayers" are his ultimate aims, and said he wanted to get something done to help DACA recipients. Trump said, "it should be a bill of love".

In the case of a man arrested numerous times on domestic violence charges, the New Mexico Supreme Court says a person's right to confront an accuser can be forfeited if that defendant is accused of wrongdoing through. "Whatever that means, they trust him". According to the Times, the administration has requested cuts or delays in funding for traditional border-security measures in order to secure the necessary $18 billion over 10 years that the wall is expected to cost. As of Thursday, Cornyn still hadn't received a list to take back to his Senate colleagues.

But in exchange, Trump wants a number of immigration-related measures, including increased security to thwart more illegal immigration along the southern USA border with Mexico by constructing a wall he vowed during his 2016 presidential campaign would be built and paid for by Mexico.
