Backlash over Trump's comments stall bipartisan push for DACA deal

Backlash over Trump's comments stall bipartisan push for DACA deal

The administration ended renewals for two-year permits in October.

District judge William Alsup of the 9th circuit issued a ruling in San Francisco last week that temporarily blocked a decision by the government to end Daca later this year.

Trump has railed against DACA, which was implemented by the Obama administration in 2012, and made the issue of illegal immigration a key tenet of his presidential campaign past year.

According to a moment-by-moment report of the contentious White House meeting over immigration reform, the Washington Post is reporting that White House Chief of Staff John Kelly had President Donald Trump's ear and convinced him to scuttle a bipartisan deal on DACA.

Further roiling the talks are comments by Trump during an Oval Office meeting in which he questioned the need to admit more Haitians to the USA, along with Africans from "shithole" countries, according to people briefed on the conversation but not authorized to describe it publicly.

Lawmakers have been at odds as the deadline looms closer.

Even before the meeting last week, Democrats were under intense pressure to refuse to negotiate with Mr. Trump. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) expressed the same sentiment during a Senate hearing in 2013 when he said the United States could not admit everyone who wants to immigrate from "hellholes" around the world. Dick Durbin, who was also in the meeting, says he heard the president make those comments.

Cotton went so far as to suggest that Durbin has been untruthful before. "I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed".

Hopes that Congress would vote on an immigration package as part of a government funding extension were already fading when Trump allegedly used vulgar language last week in questioning the need for the United States to accept immigrants from Haiti and African nations.

On NBC's "Meet the Press", Sen. Mr. Trump is reported to have demanded billions of dollars more for his wall.

In her statement Wednesday, Nielsen said she is "thoroughly disappointed" that attention keeps being given to the meeting, when "we have serious and urgent border and immigration issues to address". "And in a defense of Senator Graham, his strong words repeated exactly the words used by the President, which you can not remember". Republicans can not pass a spending bill to prevent the government from shutting down later this week without at least nine Democratic votes in the Senate.

Sharry said he was pleased that the deal would provide relief to dreamers, their parents and those with temporary protected status but unhappy that it includes funding for Trump's "stupid wall", prevents dreamers from petitioning to sponsor their parents for green cards, and curbs family-based immigration and the diversity visa program.
