SWEET: Immigration talks continue after Trump's head-spinning meeting

A border security provision is likely to include more money for a mix of additional physical barriers and technology along the USA border with Mexico but probably not a border wall on the scale that Trump campaigned on in 2016.

Reports of his language that referred to people of color from other countries created a fire storm of criticism from both major parties and critics overseas who said they could not be described as anything but racist. Trump told senators in the Oval Office, a source briefed on the meeting told CNN. Durbin was going through a list of TPS countries that would be covered. But neither he nor the White House denied the most controversial of his comments: using the word "s-thole" to describe countries in Africa and saying he would prefer immigrants from countries like Norway instead.

Several civil rights organizations quickly responding, including the NAACP, which accused Trump of "lowbrow, callous and unfiltered racism".

Trump later added, according to a source familiar with the meeting: "Why do we need more Haitians?" We can make this land sparkle even more by choosing those we most need, including some unskilled. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., left, listened as House Homeland Security Border and Maritime Security Subcommittee Chairwoman Rep. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., spoke during a Wednesday news conference, on Capitol Hill in Washington. Trump and a bipartisan group from Congress met January 9 to discuss a measure to keep DACA and include Trump's demands for a border wall and other security measures.

Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during a briefing that no deal had been reached yet.

"This carefully crafted legislation, which is aligned with the White House's immigration priorities, combines enforcement measures and increased border security to enhance public safety, ensure the door remains open to law-abiding immigrants, and restore the rule of law", Goodlatte said in a written statement. "The President invited us to - at his little get-together in the Cabinet room - to come up with proposals, and we did". That's when Durbin huddled with members of the Senate bipartisan immigration group he's been working with for months.

On Thursday an Arizona senator announced a bipartisan deal was reached by some senators. Lindsay Graham said he addressed the president over the comments.

Trump scored good reviews, hence the remark about the White House "studio" on Wednesday. "But I think, to me, a clean bill is a bill of DACA, we take care of them, and we also take care of security".

Later, again attempting to nudge the president back on track to a more conservative plan, Senator David Perdue, a Georgia Republican, made a similar pitch for precision.

Sam's Club Closings 2018: 63 Stores Shutting Down
But he agreed that Walmart should have led with the store closures, and discussed the raises and bonuses later. The company drew criticism from people on Twitter who objected to the lack of notice about the closings.

But Heitkamp, who was not in Thursday's meeting, said she didn't believe Trump's comments "blew up" the negotiations. Cotton, Perdue, Goodlatte and McCarthy pushed back at the Durbin and Graham proposal. "Flake's bipartisan group - the only bipartisan group that has been negotiating a DACA fix - has struck a deal".

"The ruling last night in no way diminishes the urgency" for a bipartisan bill protecting the so-called Dreamers, he said.

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", Trump insisted in a series of Friday morning tweets.

"We're going to have - more than a signal - we're going to have a very clear message this is something he'd support, that he'd sign", Cornyn said.

"My parents came from one of those countries but proudly took an oath of allegiance to the United States and took on the responsibilities of everything-that being a citizen comes with".

DETROW: Now they say they're working on building support for the deal in Congress.

"It just shows everyone how broken and unfair our Court System is when the opposing side in a case (such as DACA) always runs to the 9th Circuit and nearly always wins before being reversed by higher courts", the Republican president wrote on Twitter.

On Tuesday, Trump said an immigration deal could be reached in two phases - first by addressing young immigrants and border security with what he called a "bill of love", then by making comprehensive changes that have long eluded Congress.
