Senators Say They've Reached Immigration Deal

Senators Say They've Reached Immigration Deal

"We'll see what happens", he said, though he added it was "unlikely" that he would be called for interview.

"An issue of this magnitude must go through the normal legislative process", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement Wednesday. "So we'll be talking to the White House about that and I hope we can move forward with it, it's the only game in town".

Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, introduced the bill alongside Republican leaders of several other House committees and subcommittees related to immigration and national security.

One of the Democratic senators at the meeting, Dick Durbin of IL, confirmed on Twitter that Trump used the term "shithole". Durbin is a member of the bipartisan group and an early proponent of legislation to shield those immigrants.

The exchange came during a meeting meant to present the White House with a bipartisan compromise to help resolve the standoff over immigration.

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., one of the six senators working on a deal, said Wednesday morning that they are "close" to an agreement.

Democrats' insistence on passing an immigration bill by the funding deadline has raised concerns about the possibility of a government shutdown.

Activist dreamers aren't satisfied with this type of plan, said Juan de la Rosa, a Virginia Tech graduate and DACA beneficiary who still lives and works in Blacksburg.

For that reason, immigrants are putting pressure on congressional lawmakers who have been working together to include an immigration plan that includes permanent, legal protections for certain immigrants as part of a larger spending bill package.

President Donald Trump and a bipartisan group from Congress met January 9 at the White House to discuss a measure to keep DACA and include Trump's demands for a border wall and other security measures.

The order by U.S. District Judge William Alsup issued late Tuesday says safeguards against deportation must remain in place for the almost 690,000 immigrants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program while a legal challenge to ending the Obama-era program proceeds. DACA protected young undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children from deportation.

Republican Sen. Tom Cotton, a key Trump supporter and immigration hardliner, called the bipartisan proposal "a joke", Bloomberg News reported.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: We need the wall for security. He has a tendency to agree with whichever person he spoke to last, so when the Democratic leaders pressed him on DACA he just went along with it.

The initiative also proposes to allot $30 billion for the construction of a controversial wall on the United States border with Mexico and do away with the visa lottery programme, which benefits citizens of countries who have a low number of immigrants to the US. He stressed the need for "surveillance" and "manpower" in tandem with that.

While unpredictable on DACA, Trump has generally backed his strong anti-immigration language on the campaign trail with action since taking office. Democrats and many Republicans in Congress support legislation enshrining those protections. Recently, however, he has positioned himself as cheerleader-in-chief for Dreamers, as in this September 14 tweet: "Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military?"

"Any solution has to include the wall, because without the wall, it all doesn't work", Trump said.
