Trump Doesn't Know How to Make Immigration Deal

Donald Trump. US President

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understanding that ensuring protection for these young people should be the first step in the systematic reform of our outdated immigration laws", said Bishop Joe Vasquez of Austin, Texas, referring to those now protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Six more days. $0 left to run the government.

An immigration package "must be part of a global deal on the budget", Schumer said.

President Donald Trump and a bipartisan group from Congress met January 9 at the White House to discuss a measure to keep DACA and include Trump's demands for a border wall and other security measures.

But then two things happened that seem to be occurring often in Trump-era Washington.

Meanwhile, Dreamers and the Democrats will likely gain more leverage against Trump and the Republicans with the approach of March 5, the day the DACA program, per Trump's order, is set to expire.

The outcome of the meeting lead by the president, who considers himself a savvy negotiator, was best summed up by Richard Durbin, a Democrat senator from IL who attended the gathering: "My head is spinning with all the things that were said by the president and others in that room in the course of an hour-and-a-half".

President Donald Trump's profane comment about Africa is drawing furious reactions from civil rights organizations.

"We always knew that President Trump doesn't like people from certain countries or people (of) certain colors", congressman Luis Gutierrez said.

"They would hope that Congress and the president will come to a quick deal, or come up with a solution to give them a path to legal status".

At least 17 dead as mudslides hit fire-ravaged Southern California
Military vehicles arrive to assist evacuation operations at an area damaged by mudslides in Montecito, Calif. on January 9. An evacuation order was issued recently near the burnt-down areas of Santa Barbara, Ventura and Los Angeles counties.

"Any solution has to include the wall because without the wall, it all doesn't work", Trump told reporters at the White House.

For the first time in decades there seems to be the possibility of real immigration reform - and a way to deal with the more than 800,000 "Dreamers" now contributing to the USA economy.

"The trade-off I see the president being forced to make is, that they're going to want to have something on DACA".

The judge did not rule on the merits of the case but said the plaintiffs would suffer irreparable harm if the Trump administration ended DACA before the legal dispute is resolved. "But he can help to mess up those negotiations".

In a tweet, Trump again took aim at the courts.

A related initiative, according to congressional aides, would shore up the Temporary Protection Status program that has been under attack by the Trump administration. "We should strike now" and reach a deal, he said. But the administration's calls for a little over 300 miles of new border structures, plus upgrades to about 400 miles of barriers already built or approved.

In addition to the wall, he also has called for ending chain migration (when immigrants are allowed to bring distant relatives to the U.S.), eliminating the visa lottery and beefing up resources for border security.

But for now, all eyes are on a DACA deal. They're under pressure to find a breakthrough before a deadline next week that could lead to a government shutdown neither side wants.

"It really means a lot to me because I feel like I'm making a statement, 'We are here to stay, '" Azua said.

He's been vocal about wanting to deal with DACA before tackling the arduous task of immigration reform. Aides - and it's worth noting, most directly involved in the talks were very quiet Thursday night, willing to let this just sit out there on its own - say it clearly hardens the resolve on the negotiators, but also, as one put it, "lays bare the true motivations and thinking of a president who tried to use words like "love" and how much he cared in front of cameras".
