Members of Colorado's congressional delegation respond to Trump's "shithole" comments with outrage

Members of Colorado's congressional delegation respond to Trump's

In his statement Friday, Graham, who challenged Trump when he made the "shithole" comment, encouraged lawmakers to look past the incident and come to a solution.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled against the plaintiffs on an issue in the litigation last month when it said Alsup acted too soon in ordering document disclosure.

The result was a surreal scene on Friday.

Trump on Friday pushed back against the reports about his remarks.

Mr. Trump will spend the weekend at his Mar-a-Lago retreat in Palm Beach, Florida. "Like other nations that have merit-based immigration, President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation". "It's a non-starter. I wouldn't waste my time on it", she said. Two GOP senators present at the meeting later said in a joint statement that they "do not recall the president saying these comments specifically", after Sen.

Faced with a wave a criticism at home and overseas, Mr. Trump engaged in a belated attempt at damage control early Friday.

Let me pick up on what happened after that White House meeting on immigration President Donald Trump hosted on Tuesday - the one he turned into an nearly hour-long show, with Sen.

The introduction comes after a nationally televised meeting with Trump and members of Congress on the future of immigration Tuesday. Asked whether he is open to a pathway to citizenship for non-DACA illegal immigrants Trump replied, "I am always open to discussing everything but that doesn't mean we're going to get anywhere close to getting it done", adding "I'd love to get something done if it's appropriate".

And then there's 's proposed border wall, which Democratic leaders have signaled they'll have to accept in some fashion as part of the final deal - though their members remain deeply opposed.

CASSIDY: It is about border security.

But the main impetus for the deal is the fate of the Dreamers.

In the past few days, the paper reported, "the tension on the theme of immigration has risen noticeably" with Trump and a bipartisan group from Congress meeting January 11 to discuss a measure that would keep the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program intact, but also include Trump's demands for a border wall.

But last week, a federal judge in California said the almost 690,000 DACA recipients must retain their work permits and their protection from deportation while a lawsuit moves forward. From that point onward, roughly 1,000 people a day are expected to lose their protections. But given the way negotiations collapsed this week in such rancorous fashion, it is hard to see lawmakers arriving at a consensus ahead of that deadline.

Trump apparently believes he will have one shot to reform our broken immigration system and wants a more comprehensive approach. "It puts a new kind of pressure on moderate Republicans in particular to think differently about what steps they take next", said Mary Giovagnoli, a former senior official on immigration policy in the Obama administration.

The proposal addresses "chain migration" by making parents of DREAMers ineligible for green cards and making it impossible for them to naturalize, and it would not force an influx of new immigrants.
