Trump Bashes 'So-Called Bipartisan DACA Deal' As 'Big Step Backwards'

DACA supporters demonstration at the White House in Washington 'Inhumane': US Immigration Officials Raid Workplaces as DACA Remains in Limbo

He's been vocal about wanting to deal with DACA before tackling the arduous task of immigration reform.

The senators, three Democrats and three Republicans, "have reached an agreement in principle that addresses border security, the diversity visa lottery, chain migration/family reunification and the Dream Act", they wrote in a statement. We are, by far, the most generous nation in the world for legal immigration.

But delays in forging an agreement have led Democrats to use leverage on a separate issue - the budget - to seek to drive the immigration legislation into law.

So if a DACA fix is going to pass, it may happen in a very rare circumstance where most of the votes in the House come from the minority party, the Democrats, which means Democratic leaders are going to have to round up votes from members who oppose Trump's border wall and numerous proposed changes to the legal immigration process.

The lawmakers were describing how certain immigration programs operate, including one to give safe haven in the United States to people from countries suffering from natural disasters or civil strife. He gave Congress until March to come up with a legislative fix.

"You see it being struck down, then upheld, then there's appeals and I think that's the wrong answer", said Arellano.

Trump derided the court system as "broken and unfair" after Alsup on Tuesday ordered the administration to temporarily keep the so-called Dreamer program in place.

Alsup said lawyers in favor of DACA clearly demonstrated that the young immigrants "were likely to suffer serious, irreparable harm" without court action. The judge also said the lawyers had a strong chance of succeeding at trial.

A judge said maybe racism was behind President Donald Trump's decision to shut down a program protecting young undocumented immigrants from deportation.

MLK Jr.'s Niece: 'Trump Is Not a Racist'
The president said he has a wonderful relationship with Haitians and suggested future meetings probably should be recorded. "I want to see the tape".

In the past year, Trump has raised eyebrows with his stance on sensitive race issues in America.

After Trump and lawmakers spent time meeting privately, the White House and numerous lawmakers said there was agreement to limit the immediate bill to four areas.

Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton, who was in the White House meeting, told reporters that bipartisan Senate proposal is "unacceptable" because of it its weak provisions on chain migration and the green card lottery.

The president is also demanding border security measures, and specifically money for his wall on the southern border with Mexico, a key campaign pledge.

Trump is expected to visit San Diego Jan. 30 to visit the wall prototypes constructed in 2017. CNN reported that Trump responded, according to a source familiar with the meeting: "Why do we need more Haitians? But we do need a wall for a fairly good portion". But they will continue to lobby their legislators as they have over the past year. So why are politicians from both parties trying to jam it down our throats? But one conservative foe of giving ground acknowledged the impact of Trump's support.

But it also includes a number of changes Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has said she needs to stop the new surge of illegal immigrants who have figured out how to game the current system. "We should strike now" and reach a deal, he said.

As reprehensible as Trump's remarks are, the situation of some 800,000 people known as Dreamers is of such overriding importance that Democrats and Republicans alike must find a way to move past those comments and find a solution. But anti-immigrant anti-compromise Republicans could - if there was a deal that could bring in Democratic support - lose the power they have.

Conservatives quickly sounded alarms about a process that would lead to a comprehensive agreement on immigration, a path that has always been anathema to many rank-and-file Republicans.
