For immigrants, Trump's 's**thole' comments distract from talks on DACA deal


The ruling means that the Trump administration must renew applications for so-called "Dreamers" - children brought to the United States illegally by their parents - who are protected from deportation under DACA.

At his meeting in the White House with Republican and Democratic lawmakers, Trump discussed policies to protect more than 800,000 DREAMer immigrants from deportation, reported USA Today, a direct contradiction of policies Trump promised his supporters during his campaign. Republican Senator from Oklahoma James Lankford told reporters after the meeting he was "confused" by some of Trump's statements.

The White House blasted a federal judge's recent ruling that blocked President Trump's decision to end DACA earlier this year, calling the move "outrageous", particularly "in light" of the President's widely-praised bipartisan round-table regarding the hot-button issue.

"There's still a ways to go", he said.

For now, de la Rosa said, the holding pattern continues as DACA recipients wait and see what will happen.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said, "We still believe we can get there".

Some other lawmakers who have been engaged in the negotiations were also optimistic; others said no deal had yet been reached.

Rather, the president appears to expect legislators to come up with a DACA deal that can both win enough Democratic support to pass the Senate and make all of his far-right friends happy. "We should strike now" and reach a deal, he said.

The group, which also consists of Sens. The six senators are Democrats Dick Durbin, Michael Bennet and Robert Menendez and Republicans Lindsey Graham, Jeff Flake and Cory Gardner. During that meeting, Trump called for Congress to find a solution for dreamers waiting in limbo after Trump ended the program.

The House has unveiled an immigration bill one day after a lengthy meeting between lawmakers and the president. He bashed both the changes Democrats offered on current visa programs as well as the deal to do a full DREAM Act.

SANAA ABRAR: It is completely unfair and honestly immoral to use the lives of DACA recipients and undocumented youth as bargaining chips for these anti-immigrant priorities.

President Trump said it again Wednesday, but this time in no uncertain terms: There must a border wall as part of any legislation to extend temporary legal status for immigrants who arrived in the United States as children.

It also aims to end the phenomenon of so-called "chain migration", which sees U.S. citizens and Green Card holders facilitate the entry of their family members to the country.

When the publication inquired about the missing words, a White House official reportedly said that "any omission from the transcript was unintentional and that the context of the conversation was clear".

Democrats still want to force action in Congress on a DACA plan by January 19, when a government funding plan runs out.
