President Trump says immigration deal must have wall money

Trump denies 'language used' describing Haiti, El Salvador and places in Africa
Congress must do two things in the coming days. Immigrants shielded by DACA (around one million) likely account for less than ten percent of the unauthorized immigrant population in the United States (about eleven million).
But even the toughest anti-immigration voices concede: Congress is negotiating on Trump's terms. But turning that goodwill into a measure that can be enacted is proving extremely hard.
The 24-year-old paramedic who helped give assistance during Hurricane Harvey, the most powerful storm to hit the mainland in over a decade, recalled the "heartbreak" he endured after learning about Trump's decision to end DACA.
A new bill introduced in the U.S. House by Reps.
Trump has specified DACA legislation has to include measures to "secure the border". The United States is essentially the only home many of them have ever known, and kicking them out of the country would be profoundly un-American.
The committee chairman said the Catholic leaders are ready to work with Congress and the White House to find a solution, but he also cautioned against including "unrelated, unnecessary or controversial elements of immigration policy" in a fix for DACA.
A new Republican bill being introduced Wednesday would allow young undocumented immigrants who receive protection from deportation under the expiring Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA) program to receive three-year renewable legal status.

President Donald Trump says any immigration deal he signs must include funding for his promised Southern border wall.
Trump's contemptuous description of an entire continent startled lawmakers in the meeting and immediately revived charges that the president is racist. Trump still wants his border wall, though he's toned down what that means. "We are now working to build support for that deal in Congress", wrote Durbin, Graham, Republicans Jeff Flake and Cory Gardner and Democrats Michael Bennet and Bob Menendez. We need to pass a clean DREAM Act. But the bottom line is, he at the end said that if there is something that we're able to work out, that we will - he would go ahead and sign it. Border Congressman Will Hurd's (R-TX) proposal for a SMART "wall" using drone and biometric technology to police the border could provide a blueprint for that approach.
In a report by McClatchy DC, a number of Republican aides blamed Miller for being an "obstacle" in the debate over how to provide pro-American immigration reforms to the American people, while giving amnesty to the almost 800,000 illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
The statement says the UC system will persist in legal challenges to the end of the program and will seek permanent protection for the young immigrants. It would halt the Diversity Visa program, increase green card availability for skilled workers by 45 percent, and establish a better guest agricultural worker program to support the US agriculture industry, McSally's office said in a statement. "And we do that in this legislation, but we also honor the commitment the president made to couple it with securing our borders and ending chain migration".
That's according to aides familiar with the pact, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement has not yet been made public.
"However, we still think we can get there and we are very focused on trying to make sure that happens", she said. Democrats, whose votes will be needed in the Senate to pass a bill to keep the government open, have said a DACA solution must be part of the government funding bill.
As of now, there seems to be little appetite for forcing a shutdown.
For DACA recipients, such a delay would mark an extension of the uncertainty that has clouded their futures since past year.
