Border Wall Must Be Part of DACA Deal

DACA | HuffPost

Then on Thursday, a bipartisan group of senators presented the president with an agreement on new legislation for immigrants brought to the US illegally as children. Although there is video footage from the meeting available to everyone on the internet, this would not be the first time that the White House completely ignored video proof to excuse one of Trump's gaffes.

Trump has denied making the remarks, but Illinois Democratic Sen. That too has wide bipartisan support.

The six senators are also discussing family-based immigration, also referred to as chain migration. That would allow beneficiaries of the law to receive three-year renewable legal status.

Instead of using that agreement as a turning point in the as-yet-intractable immigration debate, President Donald Trump opted to kick over the table. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) and Michael McCaul (R-TX), joined by conservative Freedom Caucus member Raul Labrador (R-ID) and Arizona Congresswoman Martha McSally (R-AZ) addresses all of these issues and eliminates the diversity visa, another item on Trump's wish list.

The bill does contain much of what the president has said that he wants to see in an immigration bill: plans to fund the border wall, end the chain migration system and the visa lottery program.

At the same time, Congress is negotiating DACA policy, among other immigration issues.

President Donald Trump told congressional leaders Tuesday the bill permanently settling the status of the so-called DREAMers should be "a bill of love" but he has not publicly provided clarity on what a deal would look like.

The progress senators expressed hope for comes after a unique meeting with Trump on Tuesday, almost an hour of which was televised. Frankly since a large number of illegal immigrants enter under perfectly legal visas and simply overstay their welcome, reform of that system would be a far more fruitful avenue to pursue.

She continued, "She's lied so much she doesn't know what isn't a lie anymore". "I didn't abuse any of my children". In her words: "No bodyguard, are you kidding me? That was why I chose to do this movie".

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

Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton and Georgia Sen.

"It's an affirmation of the principle that no one is above the law", he told the Washington Post.

"But it also has to be a bill where we're able to secure our border". Now, though, some Democrats - nine of whom are necessary to pass a bill through the US Senate - insist on addressing DACA and other priorities before the deadline. 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.

While she's excited by the federal judge's ruling, Salcido said the efforts to end the DACA program have caused dire consequences for her clients.

Democrats, meanwhile, have been coping with their own immigration-related infighting, and disagree on how best to tackle DACA negotiations.

The news was largely welcomed on Capitol Hill, where some accuse Trump's controversial senior policy adviser Stephen Miller of standing in the way of a deal on immigration and others said they didn't know who to talk to about the contentious issue.

The reported deal from the bipartisan group was a solid start, with genuine compromise from both sides.
