John Lewis says he won't vote for government funding without DACA deal

John Lewis says he won't vote for government funding without DACA deal John Lewis says he won't vote for government funding without DACA deal

While that matter works its way through the courts, President Trump on Sunday was blasting Democrats over failed political efforts to reach a deal on the future of some 800,000 illegal immigrant "Dreamers" under DACA. Many Democrats might withhold their support unless immigration policy is addressed. "That I can tell you".

Trump, who drew sharp criticism since he was reported to have insulted Haiti and African countries while discussing immigration with lawmakers on Thursday, declared late on Sunday night that's he's not racist.

Democrats are standing firm, and daring Trump to sink Republicans even more by shutting down the government. Trump admtted to using "tough" language but has denied making the statement.

"We've been anxious for a deal for awhile - keep in mind that General Kelly went to Congress previous year and made the pitch that we should get this done", Short continued.

"Lindsey - he meant well - but I said, 'Well, how many Republicans agree with this?'" Trump said. "They are not really dictating it, necessarily", he said.

"It's baffling to me that Democrats would be willing to block military funding for unrelated issues", Ryan said, referring mainly to the fix for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, known as DACA, which President Donald Trump ordered to end on March 5. "I think we all have a pretty good idea of what we have to do".

But time was running out, and a government shutdown "could happen", Trump told Reuters, adding that there was still a possibility of him signing a short-term spending measure this week to avoid a shutdown.

Instead of passing a month-long patch to government spending, Schumer proposed a "very short-term" bill to keep the government running, which he said could spark a deal over the next few days on immigration and overall spending levels through September 30, the end of this fiscal year.

"He is being run by Stephen Miller", McAuliffe said.

The Senate is bracing for a potential shutdown.

Samsung announces 16Gb GDDR6 mass production
Making it noticeably fast than the last generation's GDDR5 memory which achieves a top data transfer speed of around 12 Gbps. This should come as a shock to its competition, both SK Hynix and Micron , who aimed to start production later this year .

Despite the tensions that arose from the meeting, Short said he's confident progress is being made despite the timeline remaining unclear.

No. 2 House Democrat Steny Hoyer said Democrats have not decided whether they will support another continuing resolution and "kick the can down the road one more time".

According to highlights of the draft legislation obtained by The Arizona Republic, the compromise deal calls for a shift away from the nation's longstanding family-based immigration system by eliminating the Diversity Visa Lottery program, which now uses a random lottery system to pick immigrants from countries with low rates of immigration to the U.S.

Democrats' votes are needed to advance the stopgap measure through the Senate, but they have been rebuffed in their demands to add protections against deportation for younger immigrants who were brought to the country illegally as children.

"We have come so far".

As Sen. Coons stated, Trump said he would sign whatever deal Congress came up with. But it was not yet clear whether Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would schedule it for a floor debate and vote.

The plan would eliminate the visa lottery, but used those passes to create a new amnesty for Haitians, Salvadorans and other would-be illegal immigrants who've been in the US under special protections because of natural disasters back home.

"We must have Security at our VERY DANGEROUS SOUTHERN BORDER, and we must have a great WALL to help protect us, and to help stop the massive inflow of drugs pouring into our country!"

The bipartisan deal called for US$2.7 billion for an array of border security steps.

"President Trump wants to shut down the government over his cynical and misbegotten 'big handsome wall, ' which will be paid for by US taxpayers, NOT Mexico", Leahy said.
