Democratic leaders face internal mutiny over DREAMers deal

Democratic leaders face internal mutiny over DREAMers deal

The Trump administration had said in September it would phase out DACA by March 5, giving Congress six months to enact a legislative solution that permanently resolved the fate of young immigrants who have lived in the USA illegally since childhood. The Associated Press on Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018 obtained details of the agreement between three Republican and three Democratic senators.

Trump originally said Mexico would foot the bill for the wall, a claim incredulously dismissed by the U.S.'s southern neighbor.

A bipartisan group of senators has struck a deal on legislation that would shield hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation, Sen.

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

Outside the West Wing after Tuesday's meeting Durbin told reporters, "My head is spinning with all the things that were said by the president and others in that room". Its proponents - led by Sens.

"The five white guys I call them, you know", Pelosi said, making a reference to the Five Guys hamburger chain. "So we'll be talking to the White House about that and I hope we can move forward with it".

Senate negotiators were trying to get legislation assembled by next week so it could possibly be attached to a spending bill that Congress will have to pass to avoid government shutdowns after January 19. 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.

Twelve-year pathway to citizenship.

On the day that Donald Trump ended Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), he called on Congress to pass a legislative replacement for the Executive-branch program - one that would protect its 700,000 (former) beneficiaries from deportation. Once they retake the Congress and the presidency, and if Trump betrays his base on immigration that will definitely happen. If you asked him to name the statutory or constitutional authority that gives him the power to rescind DACA protections, he would not have the first clue what they are (to be clear, he nearly certainly does have such authority, but he has no idea why or how). But an $18 billion wall? No.

"We're willing to give a little when it comes to border security, but we're not willing to give away the whole hog and farm", Rep. Ruben Gallego of Arizona told Politico.

Other steps including body cameras, rescue beacons, more investigators for Border Patrol. Mr. Trump can not get rolled by Democrats the way Ronald Reagan did in 1986 when he accepted a deal in which amnesty for 3 million illegal immigrants preceded much-needed (even then) bolstering of border security.

Since then, Trump has harped on his desire for the U.S.to adopt a merit-based immigration system, which de-emphasizes migration based on family ties. Documents did not define what those terms mean. An estimated 22,000 eligible DACA recipients either did not or could not apply for renewal before the deadline, and roughly 1,900 of those who attempted renewal saw their applications lost or delayed in the mail and subsequently rejected.
