Outcry over Trump remarks overshadows efforts to protect undocumented immigrants

Outcry over Trump remarks overshadows efforts to protect undocumented immigrants

Shutting down the government over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals could pose a "huge problem" for Democrats heading into the 2018 midterm elections, particularly in states carried in 2016 by President Donald Trump, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Tuesday. Markey told reporters yesterday.

"DACA is probably dead because the Democrats don't really want it, they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our military", Trump said earlier on Twitter. He added that "we need a merit based system of immigration" and "no more dangerous" visa lottery.

"That's the most terrifying part to me", Martinez said. His comments followed four tweets on the same topic on Saturday.

Mr Trump, who left Florida for Washington on Monday afternoon after a three-day break at his Mar-a-Lago estate, hit out at Senator Dick Durbin, the democrat who accused Mr Trump of using the word in the meeting.

Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., also expressed optimism on ABC about finding a fix for DACA, but only if "the Democrats get serious about negotiating" on securing USA borders and family reunification or "chain migration". "My DACA is valid until 2019, so it doesn't affect me at this very moment but it makes me glad that USCIS is continuing". We need to pass a bill protecting DREAMers now.

"Honestly, I don't think the Democrats want to make a deal".

"He said, 'Put me down for wanting more Europeans to come to this country". "The Democrats are negotiating in good faith".

Trump, who drew sharp criticism since he was reported to have insulted Haiti and African countries while discussing immigration with lawmakers on Thursday, declared late on Sunday night that's he's not racist.

The White House initially offered no denial of the charge that Trump questioned why the United States would want to accept immigrants from "s-hole countries".

After Attorney General Jeff Sessions said September 5 he would rescind the program, Trump urged Congress to pass legislation.

In an interview with John Catsimatidis on NY radio station AM 970, Lewandowski said that Democrats have some "good opportunities" to win the 24 seats the party needs to retake the lower chamber.

A pair of Republican senators, Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Senator David Perdue of Georgia who were in the meeting, previously said they didn't recall Trump using that vulgar word.

Durbin has stood by his claim. We have until Friday to reach a bipartisan agreement to resolve all of these issues.

Labrado said these numbers reflect the positive contributions that DACA recipients have made to the economy of the country.

When Democrats label every Republican immigration proposal as racist, there's no room for any compromise.

"I'm going to go back into hiding", she said she thought. But Navarro has always feared that the DACA programme-which has long been politically contentious-could end, a concern that complicated his studies.

"The worst thing that can happen right now is for there not to be a fix at all", Love said.

Mike, a 20-year-old from East Moriches who arrived from Costa Rica when he was two, is one of those immigrants with an uncertain future ever since the Trump administration rolled back DACA protections. He appeared to endorse a "clean DACA" bill sought by Democrats.

ReutersA White House spokesman responded to the criticism: "Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people". In follow-up polling, 76 percent said pres. Trump's comments on USA immigration from Africa and Haiti were inappropriate. "I want to see it markedly more hard to sneak into this country and indeed have a process where people that desire to come live the American dream do so in a legal and forthright way". "Where we are is trying to find a real solution", Gardner said on CBS.
