Sarah Huckabee Sanders had to come out and walk back the threats before they derailed the entire deal in Congress and caused an actual shutdown.

Kelly said Trump would likely reject an effort to pass a short-term extension for the program, which is set to expire on March 5.

"It is important for America's politicians to focus less on blaming each other and more on agreeing to permanent and fair immigration policy", Colin Savino, freshman and Student Government Association senator, said.

"You're not going to give a pathway to citizenship unless you give the things the President wants". Attorney General Jeff Sessions is appealing the court ruling, and unless higher courts rule on the legality of the program, DHS will be required to continue renewing DACA visas.

President Trump said he would "love" to see a government shutdown if Congress doesn't agree to changes in USA immigration laws.

"There are 690,000 official DACA registrants and the president sent over what amounts to be two and a half times that number, to 1.8 million", Kelly said.

"We've never really seen anything quite like this, the level of ferocity, the level of violence", Trump said. Don't even think about it, ' Trump said.

"I can't imagine men and women of good will who begged this president to solve the problem of DACA" would oppose Trump's proposal, Kelly said.

Trump needs navy parade in Washington: Washington Put up
On Tuesday, Pentagon spokesman Charlie Summers described the planning process as being in its "infancy". At a January 18 meeting attended by Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen.

That's essentially what President Donald Trump hinted at wanting to see when he rescinded former President Barack Obama's executive order on September 5, 2017.

Arizona Rep. Ruben Gallego, who is part of Congressional Hispanic Caucus" leadership, argued, "Dreamers are some of the hardest workers I know.

Trump appeared frustrated after hearing stories from law enforcement officials describing how their hands were tied by existing laws that allowed catch-and-release and by minorities earning protected status despite hired smugglers bringing them into the United States.

The White House has made clear what side it's on, by dismissing yet another bipartisan solution proposed by Senators this morning. John McCain (R., Ariz.) and Chris Coons (D., Del.) floated on Monday a Senate version of a House bill which would grant a path to citizenship to DACA recipients in exchange for tightened border security.

Trump tweeted Monday that the proposal is a "total waste of time" because it doesn't immediately authorize spending the billions to build new barriers along the border. They also charges the Homeland Security secretary to submit a southern border strategy to Congress within one year, to include a comprehensive list of "known physical barriers" usable as border protection, and an estimated cost per mile for construction.

If Democrats don't want to close loopholes that allow gang members to illegally enter and remain in the country, he said, "Then shut it down".

The McCain-Coons bill does not address family-based legal migration or the abolition of the diversity lottery, two of Trump's priorities.

Asked about Trump's comment on the shutdown, Schumer said, "We had one Trump shutdown".
