Democratic leaders face internal mutiny over DREAMers deal

DACA supporters demonstration at the White House in Washington

A source familiar with the meeting told CNN's Jake Tapper the President did not refer to Haiti as a "shithole" country but Trump did ask why the United States needs more Haitians and pushed to "take them out" of the deal.

Sens. Jeff Flake R-Ariz. and Dick Durbin D-Ill. They've got juice. And you needed something to blow up before a real deal could come together.

One of the Democratic senators at the meeting, Dick Durbin of IL, confirmed on Twitter that Trump used the term "shithole".

Dreamers who have never received DACA protections, however, will not be allowed to apply, Alsup ordered.

While Hoyer and Pelosi fought over language, Sen. On the morning of December 29, he tweeted "The Democrats have been told, and fully understand, that there can be no DACA without the desperately needed WALL at the Southern Border and an END to the awful Chain Migration & ridiculous Lottery System of Immigration etc".

A working group of six USA senators said earlier this week that they had reached an agreement, including a solution on continuing the DACA program, but the White House said any agreement must include funding for the border wall. If the Republican leadership has a better alternative, bring it forward.

That's the memory Republicans are still haunted by today.

Time is running out. "The next step is taking it to the White House".

He was right, but he did, and now we have this judge saying it was within executive parameters to bypass Congress. The judge used a December tweet from Trump to support his claim. "So we've cut chain migration with regard to the covered population". "No more Lotteries! #AMERICA FIRST", he said.

It would also make headway toward reforming family-based immigration - sometimes referred to as "chain migration" - by offering three-year, renewable work permits to the parents of Dreamers, but making them ineligible to be sponsored for citizenship.

U.S. President Donald Trump holds a cabinet meeting at the White House in Washington, U.S., January 10, 2018.

"We've got to get 60 votes, meaning we've got to get votes on the Republican side and the Democratic side, and the agreement is going to be DACA and some border security elements", he said.

That second bill would likely face long odds for passage, considering long-running disagreements over issues like how to handle all 11 million illegal immigrants that are now in the US. We don't have six months for the DACA bill.

Republicans have introduced an immigration bill in the House that takes a hard line against illegal immigration.

Angie Kim, an immigrants rights advocate and community organizer with MinKwon Center for Community Action, spoke with Radio Sputnik's Loud & Clear about the court's blocking of the phaseout of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and described Wednesday morning's immigration raid on 7-Eleven stores across the nation as "inhumane".

Now that a federal judge has blocked the administration from letting DACA expire in March, and hardliners are calling the president a traitor for his responses to Graham and others, who knows what could happen?

A bipartisan group of US senators on Thursday reached a tentative agreement on legislation to protect young "Dreamer" immigrants from deportation, along with other immigration policy changes, and is attempting to build support for the deal in Congress.

This makes chain migration the largest driver of immigration to the US - making up more than 70 percent - with every two new immigrants bringing seven foreign relatives with them.

Reports of the president's language referring to people of color from the other countries drew criticism from US lawmakers of both major parties and critics overseas who said they could not be described as anything but racist. "On the diversity lottery, it simply takes all those visas and gives them away to other people for no rhyme or reason, it doesn't just end the diversity lottery". Winners have undergone only minor screening from immigration officials, even when their ideology is hostile to Americans laws and culture.
