Trump warns: 'Last chance' to 'solve the DACA puzzle'

Trump warns: 'Last chance' to 'solve the DACA puzzle' Trump warns: 'Last chance' to 'solve the DACA puzzle'

Immigration is "the defining moment for this speaker", House Freedom Caucus Chair Mark Meadows, R-N.C., said Wednesday. "If he gets it wrong, it will have consequences for him, but it will also have consequences for the rest of the Republican Party".

That warning shot from Meadows - who helped push Ryan's predecessor, John Boehner, into retirement - highlights how explosive the looming House debate will be for Republicans.

The potential breakthrough, reached late today after hours of closed-door deliberations, came as efforts to resolve the fate of 1.8 million immigrants brought to the USA illegally as children entered a crucial period in a week set aside for debate on immigration.

Ryan's spokeswoman did not respond to questions about Meadows' warnings. Any immigration deal would have to also clear the House, where conservatives bridle at the thought of providing "amnesty" to millions of immigrants, and ultimately pass muster with Trump. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) that contains many conservative priorities. Patrick J. Toomey, is unrelated to the Dreamer debate and would instead seek to withhold funding from "sanctuary" jurisdictions that decline to cooperate with federal immigration laws.

The policy protected 800,000 young immigrants across the nation.

"If we get this bill passed through the House and it ultimately gets to the president's desk, he would sign that bill", House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La., said Wednesday. "We are finally at least working on a way to come together to address this problem".

The first, by Judiciary Chairman Charles E. Grassley of Iowa, represents Trump's "four-pillar" framework.

In an early-morning tweet, Trump said: "Negotiations on DACA have begun". The plan will give GOP lawmakers a chance to stake out a position, but it could prove an embarrassment to the White House if some Republicans join Democrats and it's rejected by a substantial margin. If that happens, Rounds said, "We'll allow the president to determine whether or not it moves in the direction that he wants".

The Senate has voted to start debating immigration, including whether to protect hundreds of thousands of young immigrants in the USA illegally.

Pound to euro exchange rate: Sterling continues to plummet as eurozone grows
Meanwhile the Euro could find some strength tomorrow as analysts predict that German wholesale prices will have risen in January. Not only was the previous figure revised lower from 9.7% to 9.6%, but the Q4 figure came in with a notable improvement of 8.9%.

Democrats and some Republicans say they want to help the 'Dreamers, ' young immigrants who have lived in the United States illegally since they were children and have only temporarily been protected from deportation by an Obama-era programme.

The DREAMer issue was a key factor in a three-day government shutdown in January. Senate Democrats now seem willing to accept a deal that would provide money for border security in exchange for a DACA fix but they are eager to avoid signing on to the rest of Trump's plan regarding changes to legal immigration. One GOP proposal would pave a path to citizenship for up to 1.8 million young "Dreamer" immigrants in the USA, a lure for Democrats that many Republicans oppose.

Trump would want to focus that money on construction of a U.S. -Mexico border wall. Thus, he said, the Trump administration was well within its rights to change tack.

The moderates' measure does not alter a lottery that distributes about 55,000 visas annually to people from diverse countries. Cornyn said he expected it to be voted on this week, perhaps Thursday. Trump's overall immigration plan, opposed by many Democrats, stands little chance of prevailing because any measure will need 60 votes.

Udall's spokeswoman, Jen Talhelm, said Wednesday that the senator "has voiced support" for an immigration bill introduced by Sens.

"I am asking all senators, in both parties, to support the Grassley bill", Trump said. It would bar Dreamers from sponsoring their parents for citizenship, they said - well short of a Trump proposal to prevent all legal immigrants from bringing parents and siblings to the U.S.

Lawmakers have been negotiating under the premise that the bulk of DACA work permits will begin to expire March 5 - a deadline Trump set last fall aimed at giving Congress time to develop a legislative solution for the dreamers.

People attend a protest in support of immigration in NY. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., and David Perdue, R-Ga., to overhaul the focus of the USA immigration system, which favors immigrants who have family ties over those who must prove they would contribute to the economy.

The waiting period can last a few months to more than two decades, depending on the country of origin, the sponsor's immigration status and the applicant's relationship to their sponsor, The Times reported. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and Sen.
