Trump faces more criticism from Congress over remarks on immigration

Sanders called the decision "outrageous, especially in light of the President's successful bipartisan meeting with House and Senate members at the White House" on immigration reform on Tuesday.

After talking on the phone with U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday morning, Democratic Senator Dick Durbin was optimistic that a compromise deal with some Republicans to protect young "Dreamer" immigrants was on the verge of success.

"Those of us who negotiated the "Gang of Eight" bill, that was a tough part of the negotiations".

Arizona Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, who was briefed by Durbin and a fellow GOP Senator who attended the meeting, confirmed that version of events to CNN. "So it's hard, it's got to wait".

Two of the bargainers - No. 2 Senate Democrat Richard Durbin of IL and Sen.

Of note: The Republicans who are players in the talks - including those in the room for the comment - were silent last night, beyond a statement attacking the group of six proposal as "not serious".

Even within the GOP, vast differences about how to tackle internal enforcement exist.

It worked - 11 of the candidates they supported unseated incumbent Republicans.

In Geneva, U.N. human rights spokesman Rupert Colville said "These are shocking and shameful comments from the president of the United States. He will always reject temporary, weak and risky stopgap measures that threaten the lives of hardworking Americans, and undercut immigrants who seek a better life in the United States through a legal pathway". Steve King and Louie Gohmert, who seemingly agreed with Democratic arguments that the agriculture bill would actually accomplish the opposite of what Republicans argue for and allow employers to hire foreign labor below average American wage levels.

It should be possible, even in these polarized times, to make a limited bipartisan deal on immigration.

"The estimates vary but basically 50 to 70% of migrant workers are here in an undocumented fashion", said Will Rodger, the director of policy communications at the American Farm Bureau Federation.

The proposed deal's changes in chain migration are minor and affect only the population getting the amnesty.

Abcam's (LON:ABC) "Hold" Rating Reaffirmed at Peel Hunt
Peel Hunt reaffirmed their hold rating on shares of Abcam (LON:ABC) in a research report sent to investors on Friday, January 5th. It distributes its products and solutions directly to institutions; and to private investors through a network of intermediaries.

"It's not a flawless system".

"Why do we want all these people from "shithole countries" coming here?"

Democrats are quick to point out that although provisions like E-Verify garnered Democratic votes in 2013, the scope of the deal was much larger. During a 2016 campaign event in Miami, he said "the Haitian people deserve better" and told the audience of Haitian-Americans he wanted to "be your greatest champion, and I will be your champion". "I don't get that", said No. 2 Senate Republican John Cornyn of Texas. "I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs", Trump said Friday.

And that's unfortunate. Immigrants represent a net gain for America - they're far more likely to start a business than native-born residents, for instance, and immigration helps sustain economic growth by adding to the population of both producers and consumers. "I think, in fact, the reality is that this is a problem that's needed to be solved for many, many years".

During a Thursday meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform, Trump demanded to know why the USA should accept citizens from what he called "shithole" countries, according to comments first reported by the Washington Post.

Most of all, immigration is something to be celebrated in a liberty-loving country.

In September, President Donald Trump announced that in March, he would end DACA, which President Barack Obama created by executive order in 2012.

"I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians", Trump said on Twitter Friday.

But more moderate Republicans and Democrats also warn that tackling internal enforcement alongside DACA is cruel to young immigrants who may finally find themselves protected by Congress while members of their family who are in the country illegally suddenly become more at risk of deportation.

For years, most immigration hard-liners have said they have no complaint about legal immigration.

"The next piece is what to do with adults who knowingly broke the law but haven't violated other criminal laws", Coffman said.
