Democrats Muddy the Immigration Waters with Talk of "Clean" Bills

Trump describes El Salvador, Haiti, African nations as 'shithole countries'

The ruling came after a bipartisan meeting between President Donald Trump and members of Congress on how to address the fate of undocumented immigrants under the program.

Trump also offered a clarification later in Tuesday's meeting - "We do a Phase 1, which is DACA and security, and we do Phase 2, which is comprehensive immigration" - a relieved-looking McCarthy all but leaped from his seat, pointing at Trump like a teacher whose promising student, after several false starts, finally has alighted on the correct answer. "President Trump is committed to the rule of law, and will work with members of both parties to reach a permanent solution that corrects the unconstitutional actions taken by the last administration". Trump has terminated it but given lawmakers until March 5 to craft legislation reviving its protections.

US President Donald Trump on Wednesday slammed the judicial system for being "broken and unfair", after District Judge William Alsup in San Francisco ordered the administration to maintain the so-called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program.

The meeting comes after a federal judge this week issued an injunction halting Trump's plans to end DACA, providing the immigrants with temporary relief. Under Alsup's ruling, renewal applications must still be accepted, giving those approved another two years from the new date of their application approval.

Instead, he wants to include protections for Dreamers in a must-pass spending bill. "The iron is hot. And again, we feel very strongly that we can get a deal made".

"We are now working to build support for that deal in Congress", the senators said.

MCEVERS: But there's still a lot more that needs to happen before a DACA fix becomes reality.

Democratic votes are needed to advance such legislation, but top Democrats including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY won't agree to a budget deal unless DACA is dealt with first.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), a hawk on legal and illegal immigration who has been part of most recent White House meetings, trashed the agreement.

Earlier on Thursday, Republicans in the House of Representatives told reporters there had been substantial progress toward a deal.

Any proposed agreement would need approval from the White House and congressional leadership to move forward. Schumer are now allies, both attempting to push the Trump Administration toward a deal for a so called "Clean" DREAM act that is NOT tied to one of Mr. Trump's key campaign pledges - a border wall.

But since April 2017, when almost 16,000 people were arrested on the United States southern border, the number of illegal immigrants has started to climb.

Second-ranking Senate Democrat Dick Durbin of IL released a joint statement by the six Senate negotiators-three Republicans and three Democrats-that said their plan addresses Trump's insistence on addressing border security, limits to family priority in immigration and an end to a visa lottery to promote diversity.
