GOP, Dem senators have immigration deal, White House says no

Bipartisan Group of Senators Tries to Forge DACA Deal

Bipartisan Group of Senators Tries to Forge DACA Deal

It was just yesterday that President Trump hosted lawmakers from both parties at the White House and said he would sign any DACA bill that they sent him. For various good reasons, the horror has been so great that the media has spent countless hours debating the merits of the president's comments, forcing legal departments to mull over decency laws. As Durbin listed the countries that would benefit, Trump questioned why they should benefit.

Our bill would achieve these goals by cracking down on people who overstay their visas, by requiring employers to use the accurate and hugely successful E-Verify system to ensure that they hire only legal workers, and by making it easier to deport aliens who are gang members, who are aggravated felons, who fail to register as sex offenders, or who have multiple DUIs. The president went on to suggest that if Congress failed to protect those Dreamers, he would "revisit the issue", and, ostensibly, protect them himself. "But we know that we need a lasting solution that goes beyond the configuration of this lawsuit". "During the closed-door portion of the meeting, they reached an agreement to negotiate legislation that accomplishes critically needed reforms in four high-priority areas: border security, chain migration, the visa lottery and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy". "Most Americans are on our side".

Cotton said the plan would provide funding for just one year of wall demonstration projects. People have already lost protection and are living without protection. "It's a moment of moral reckoning for this country". But Serrano, who immigrated to the US from Mexico at age 8, said he's hopeful Congress can reach a bipartisan deal to salvage the program.

In remarks on Twitter, Donald Trump said he did not believe the opposition party truly wanted to negotiate a new arrangement for so-called Dreamers (undocumented migrants brought to the USA illegally when they were children), 690,000 of whom are now shielded from deportation by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme, Efe reported.

From 2700 miles away, Villalobos watched this week's public White House showdown, pitting California Senator Dianne Feinstein against Bakersfield Congressman and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

Alsup ruled that the federal government did not have to process new applications from people who had never before received protection under the program.

Villalobos is a graduate of Centennial High School and UC Santa Barbara and a DACA recipient.

DACA is an Obama-era program, which is scheduled to end March 5.

In 2017, President Trump made a decision to end DACA, but gave Congress until March to find a fix.

Recipients of DACA believe this is a temporary victory to push for a permanent immigration reform. Some want big reductions in legal immigration, too.

Over the last four decades, the federal government has failed to pass funding bills by the necessary deadlines almost 20 times, according to data from the Congressional Research Service.

One attendee, No. 2 Senate Democratic leader Dick Durbin of IL, said, "The sense of urgency, the commitment to DACA, the fact that the president said to me privately as well as publicly, 'I want to get this done, ' I'm going to take him as his word".
