Close to the Brink on a Government Shutdown

"... Hidalgo County is the most populated county in the state of Texas bordering Mexico and has a particularly high number of DACA beneficiaries, many of whom are distinguished community pillars, and they bring skills, ingenuity and resilience that contribute to the growth and competitiveness of our region", Palacios said.

Washington is aghast over the news that, during a closed-door meeting with congressional leaders, President Trump asked if we could exclude immigrants from "shithole" countries such as Haiti and the nations of Africa. He also said in the Thursday meeting he would prefer immigrants from countries like Norway instead.

Then there are Democrats who scent a chance to stand firm on immigration to woo 2020 primary voters, who will pick who will duel an apparently weakened President for the White House.

President took to Twitter Monday to blame Democrats for stalling a deal to protect about 800,000 young immigrants from deportation.

The President's controversial comments to lawmakers in the Oval Office came after he held on-camera bipartisan talks at the White House last week in which he appeared open to making a deal with both Republicans and Democrats.

The Democrats don't want to give President Trump funding for his promised border wall but want to save the DACA deal. Trump's staunchest supporters consider any route to citizenship for the Dreamers amnesty for lawbreakers.

Heidel added the club had done "everything they could to keep Leon" but admitted the club was losing a "very, very good player". FC Schalke 04 have confirmed that Leon Goretzka will join FC Bayern München at the end of the season.

The debate over DACA's fate came as lawmakers faced questioning about whether Trump is racist. "And he thinks it's going to help him politically, or might", one GOP source told Acosta. "They have been used for years and years and years", he said of the various political agendas that have taken up their cause. "I am the least racist person you have ever interviewed".

As the "you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours" attempts at compromise - hammered out in bipartisan negotiations over the past few months - fall apart, a solution becomes increasingly unlikely. Lindsey Graham, R- SC and Senate Minority whip Dick Durbin of IL. Perdue's comments were a shift.

The Rev. Daniel Vogel, former associate pastor at Zion Lutheran in Denison and Missionary of the Iowa District West, said uncertainty is the key word at this point, The Denison Bulletin & Review reported.

Nielsen did dispute, however, Trump's assertion that DACA was "probably dead". "I couldn't believe it when the president denied that it happened".

Thomas Jefferson said: "It has long, however, been my opinion, and I have never shrunk from its expression. that the germ of dissolution of our federal government is in the constitution of the federal judiciary; working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped".

Still, progressives say the risk to Democrats in conservative states is overblown, pointing out that polls show an overwhelming majority of Americans back a right to residency for undocumented migrants brought to the U.S. as children.

Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colorado, defended the agreement as a "principled compromise" on NBC's "Meet the Press" and said, "I hope people will explore it".
