Ramesh Ponnuru: Trump is no dealmaker on immigration reform

Trump was flanked at the table by Durbin and Rep. Steny Hoyer, D-Md., the highest ranking Democrats in the room, which is why they got those seats.

They also spurred a harsh reaction from the United Nations, with rights office spokesman Rupert Colville describing them as "shocking and shameful".

"It's an affirmation of the principle that no one is above the law", he told the Washington Post.

"Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?"

"Even the president today has backed off of any kind of description that he's looking for a sea-to-shining-sea fence or wall", said Republican Sen.

Only 11 per cent want them kicked out of the United States.

"I didn't read anything into that", said Republican Sen. A program that opened many doors to a future for Azua.

Underscoring that, there were two groups of lawmakers seeking an immigration compromise: a handful of senators from both parties who've been meeting on immigration for months as well as the No. 2 Republican and Democratic leaders who just started their gatherings.

The lawmakers also talked about the visa lottery system relating to Haiti and African countries.

The president and lawmakers are in the midst of intense negotiations about how to shield almost 800,000 "dreamers" from deportation.

In 1990, with the country in a brief recession and the Democrats in control of Congress rejecting steep spending cuts, Bush felt he had to break his promise and agreed to what were euphemistically called "tax revenue increases". He doubled down on draconian enforcement, setting deportation records for removing and returning immigrants. "These are human beings, not commodities".

An immigration reduction advocate says thus far it's been a "pretty successful" presidency for Donald Trump.

Of course, the entire reason the senators asked Kelly for the White House's demands in December was that they hadn't taken the October wish list seriously.

At a White House meeting two days ago with a large group of lawmakers, Trump said he would accept whatever legislation Congress presents him. James Lankford after the White House meeting.

Fernandez seemed to side-step the idea that Dems were using Dreamer votes and added that by issuing the memo, "we're making clear. there is a tremendous amount of support for fixing the DACA problem that President Trump created".

He said if Trump can't support it, "it's hard to see how we could get him to agree to anything that could pass in Congress".

"However, we caution against introducing unrelated, unnecessary, or controversial elements of immigration policy - especially those that jeopardize the sanctity of families or unaccompanied children - into the bipartisan search for a just and humane solution for the 'Dreamers, '" he said.

Some Republicans were also unhappy. Thanks to Trump, the Dreamers don't have the luxury of time.

The UN refugee agency spokesman William Spindler said that "people forced to flee war or persecution and needing asylum should be given protection by whichever country they are in, irrespective of race, religion, ethnicity or place or country of origin".
