Dreamers Protection Has To Come With Border Wall

Dreamers Protection Has To Come With Border Wall

Trump questioned at a White House meeting Thursday why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and Africa than from places like Norway.

She's meeting with Sens. We can not wait. We can not tolerate delay.

The bishops also "are pleased to see the mutual understanding that ensuring protection for these young people should be the first step in the systematic reform of our outdated immigration laws", said Bishop Joe Vasquez of Austin, Texas, referring to those now protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. "But tell me what the ransom is".

Trump met with 15 Republicans and 10 Democrats at the White House.

"I was at the White House talking about what I thought was a bipartisan proposal", Graham said following the meeting.

On Thursday afternoon, Republican senators went to tell Trump the good news.

"There are scores of Republicans who have shifted their position to follow the president", said Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa.

Trump's contemptuous description of an entire continent startled lawmakers in the meeting and immediately revived charges of racism.

The ruling means that the Trump administration must renew applications for so-called "Dreamers" - children brought to the United States illegally by their parents - who are protected from deportation under DACA.

Graham, however, fired back at Cotton over his negotiation strategy.

Texas Senator John Cornyn, the second ranking member of Senate Republicans, says he'd be surprised if an immigration deal can be completed by then.

Murad Awawdeh of NY Immigration Coalition added, "When folks talk about border security, and more money for enforcement, what that does is pits communities against each other".

However, soon after Alsup questioned the validity of the Justice Department's argument - that DACA had been illegally implemented under Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, and therefore needed to be scrapped.

Trump scrapped DACA last September, but left a six-month window for Congress to craft a solution by March, when thousands of immigrants would face deportation.

Since so many Americans agree on their contributions to the country, fixing the program that protects them "should be easy", he said, but instead "these young people find themselves stuck in the middle of a much broader debate about border walls, national security and the inner workings of our visa system". "We are going to build the wall", Trump said in a speech on Monday in Nashville, Tennessee. Let the Dreamers stay and apply for citizenship like all the others who are applying must do; end chain migration; and finally change the lottery immigration system to one based on merit depending on what skills are most important to our changing economy.

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.
