John Kelly Just Made Some Controversial Comments About Dreamers

"While reaching a deal can not come soon enough for America's service members, the current political reality demands bipartisan cooperation to address the impending expiration of the DACA program and secure the southern border", McCain said in a statement.

The FISA memo dominated Congress last week, pretty much all but burying any developments on immigration negotiations.

Fortunately for those who are opposed to Trump's offer, Democrats melted down and treated the amnesty offer like the president had just introduced the Nuremberg Laws.

Many lawmakers are uneasy about what might happen to the Dreamers after March 5, and Democrats _ and Trump himself _ are using that uncertainty as leverage to help force a deal.

Trump said past year that he would end by March 5 a program that was set up by former President Barack Obama to protect the Dreamers from deportation, and he urged Congress to act before that date.

Exiting the meeting, Kelly defended himself to reporters, saying of the population of young immigrants who were eligible for the Obama-era program but who didn't enroll, "some of them should have gotten off the couch and signed up".

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders responded to questions about Kelly's comments by blaming Democrats for the immigration impasse.

Last month's shutdown came after lawmakers failed to reach agreement on contentious budget and immigration issues.

The latest initiative would protect the 700,000, while also allowing hundreds of thousands of additional young immigrants in similar situations to apply for temporary legal status that could lead to USA citizenship.

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, said the group has grown tired of promises from leaders that their priorities will be tackled in the next round of budget talks.

Trump and administration officials have insisted this is a reasonable compromise, but Democrats don't see it that way, given the massive cuts to legal immigration pathways. Many Republicans don't want to enrage conservative backers by allowing what they call "amnesty" by permitting citizenship for "Dreamers".

But if an agreement is not reached, McConnell's promise is this: He will bring an immigration bill to the Senate floor for debate after February 8 - so long as Democrats don't shut down the government again. Trump is also fighting that ruling. Almost nine in 10 Americans support allowing the hundreds of thousands of DACA dreamers to stay in the United States.

"Plus, do they really want to start deporting third-grade teachers on March 5?" he added.

Trump has proposed a path to citizenship for about 1.8 million immigrants in a trade for tens of billions in funding for a wall on the border with Mexico and other changes to legal immigration, The Washington Post reported.

Jentleson said the current deadlock is similar to what he saw in 2013, when he worked to shepherd a bipartisan immigration overhaul through the Senate, only to watch it die in the Republican-led House.

Senate leaders are expected to strip out the military portion and attempt to pass a broader budget deal that Republicans and Democrats have been negotiating for months.

Q: Does that mean Congress won't vote on Trump's plan? "We'll do a shutdown", he told reporters.

Trump said lawmakers must close "loopholes" that allow gang members to enter the country. But Kelly also referenced the idea that DACA recipients could have been "too lazy" to sign up to renew their protected status.
