White House corrects DACA meeting transcript

White House corrects DACA meeting transcript

The ruling could complicate ongoing negotiations between congressional Democrats and Republicans trying to reach agreement on a deal to resolve the legal status of almost 700,000 young immigrants covered by the programme.

DACA recipients and their advocates said the decision adds new urgency to negotiations between Congress and the White House on what to do about the dreamers, who are pushing for a path to citizenship.

Later that afternoon, after members of the six-person Senate group presented their agreement to Trump, Sen. Here's South Carolina Republican Lindsey Graham.

The initiative also proposes to allot $30 billion for the construction of a controversial wall on the USA border with Mexico and do away with the visa lottery programme, which benefits citizens of countries who have a low number of immigrants to the US.

"I'm grateful for it right now because many people who have DACA can renew, so that means they're safe right now", said Leon.

"I can tell you that a deal has not been reached", said White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Trump referred to "shithole countries" in Africa during a meeting Thursday on immigration. Durbin said that in exchange, people from African countries that have benefited from that lottery would be given other access to visas. "I've said it again and again that, unfortunately, a lot of the conversation in Washington politicizing the [immigration] issue has shadowed what undocumented communities experience every day", Kim said.

"That's why there are negotiations going on that the president encouraged yesterday".

"We do not recall the President saying these comments specifically, but what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest", the statement said.

Trump ended it previous year, but gave Congress until March 5 to find a fix, and Tuesday he signalled flexibility.

Lawmakers have until Friday to approve a short-term government spending bill, and Republicans will need Democratic votes to push the measure through.

President Donald Trump rejected a bipartisan deal Thursday at the White House regarding immigration reform. That group met for the first time this week.

Trump met lawmakers on Tuesday and said he would back a two-phased approach to overhauling USA immigration laws.

Trump's apparent concession so alarmed House majority leader Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, that he interjected himself, although he was careful only to gently contradict the president.

That's according to a spokesman for Arizona Republican Sen.

"We were hoping for that, but the president is not prepared to do that at this moment", Durbin said. It was unclear why the three other Republicans attended.

Cotton told reporters when he returned to Capitol Hill after the White House meeting, "There is no deal".

Only the most rigid opponent of immigration could fail to see that these young people, an estimated 800,000, were brought to this country through no fault of their own. The truth is, the wall has become a shiny object that distracts partisans from what they claim to want in the immigration debate. If Democrats want a seat at the negotiating table, they should bring something to it.

Any immigration deal would face hurdles winning congressional approval.

Trump made striking a compromise hard by arbitrarily giving Congress six months from September of 2017 to make DACA permanent.

Among Republicans, some conservatives are insisting on going further than the steps that Trump has suggested.

Obama's penchant for unilateral action notwithstanding, Congress must solve the underlying immigration problem that DACA attempts to address.
