Bipartisan lawmakers meet to craft fix for 'Dreamers'

Bipartisan lawmakers meet to craft fix for 'Dreamers'

The bill complies with the "Four Pillars" that emerged out of the meeting between Trump and a group of lawmakers at a meeting on Monday at the White House.

Huckabee said Wednesday that Trump will continue working with Congress to craft a permanent solution for DREAMers.

When Trump made a decision to phase out DACA in September, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) argued that they were doing so because Obama had overstepped his authority in establishing the program. That program, started by former President Barack Obama, shields immigrants who arrived in the U.S.as children and are living here illegally. Since the program began phasing out in the fall, those whose protections expired had been unable to renew.

Flake's tweet came after Trump claimed Democrats were willing to risk "thousands of lives" by allowing "people and drugs" to cross into the US from Mexico.

Local immigration advocates are breathing a sigh of relief after a federal judge ruled against a controversial White House effort.

Schumer said the judge's ruling "is no guarantee of lasting security" because the judge could be overruled later by a higher court. Today Trump says the bill must include funding for a border wall. "The iron is hot". The administration said the repeal would take effect in March.

Two things to note here: First, there is genuine desire to deal with this issue - it's very personal for a lot of members and senators - and GOP leaders know they need to get it off their plate as soon as possible or face a 2018 poisoned by the issue.

Washington- A group of US Republican lawmakers has unveiled the details of an immigration bill that has the support of President Donald Trump. Dick Durbin, a key negotiator in DACA talks who was present at the meeting, told reporters he had not seen a single news report about the President's words that was false.

No. 2 Senate GOP leader John Cornyn of Texas told reporters Wednesday he'd be "surprised" if an immigration deal can be completed by the January 19 deadline.

A bipartisan group of US senators on Thursday reached a tentative agreement on legislation to protect young "Dreamer" immigrants from deportation, along with other immigration policy changes, and is attempting to build support for the deal in Congress. "President Trump has a history of being able to negotiate his way through tricky situations", said Vlad Davidiuk, Communications Director with the Harris County Republican Party.

"Hopefully they'll contribute their ideas to the solution but. six people can't agree to something that will bind Congress and the House", Cornyn said.

In addition, they proposed a down payment of the $1.6 billion requested by the administration this year on border security, limits to the ability of recipients to sponsor family members and an end to the diversity lottery and reallocation of those visas in part to cover people who were under Temporary Protected Status.

Border security. The bill provides funding to build a wall and hire agents at the border.

Mark Zuckerberg, Tim Cook, and Jeff Bezos are among more than 100 prominent business leaders urging Congress to pass legislation protecting young immigrants.

JOAQUIN CASTRO: We shouldn't trade the lives of 800,000 young people - young DREAMers for a wall across the United States of America.
