Dealing on DACA, a shutdown showdown

Dealing on DACA, a shutdown showdown

But the White House is not on board with the plan yet.

The Democrats don't want to give President Trump funding for his promised border wall but want to save the DACA deal.

DACA, established in 2012 by Trump predecessor Barack Obama, protects from deportation hundreds of thousands of immigrants whose parents brought them into the country illegally as children.

Flake's bipartisan working group has been trying to hammer out a compromise for weeks.

Congress has until midnight Friday to strike a deal on a host of thorny issues before government funding is set to run out, but talks appear to be at a standstill and a stopgap spending bill is looking more likely. Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said it was not "constructive" for Trump to have referred to African and other countries as "shitholes" but that it was "unfair" to call him racist.

Meanwhile, the GOP has been overtaken by Trump's administration, with its incipient white nationalism, as well as the president's own explicit and vicious opposition to immigration. They pay into Medicare and Social Security.

These immigrants can not collect Social Security or Medicare, so they are essentially working to support American citizens.

The Washington Post and other news media reported the president used the term "s***hole countries" in the January 11 meeting to describe African nations.

"The latest government funding bill offered by Congressional Republicans does not provide a straightforward path toward resolution by midnight this Friday, but we still think it is more likely than not enough Democrats will join Republicans to simply kick the can for four weeks (until February 16) on the government funding and immigration debates", according to Height.

He went on to blame Democrats for holding up negotiations, telling reporters, "Honestly, I don't think the Democrats want to make a deal".

"He is very much committed to making a deal when it comes to doing something permanent with DACA, doing something for border security, end chain migration, end the visa lottery system and really make sure that we're taking steps so that we don't have to do this all again in two years, and we're actually correcting the problem", she said on Fox News.

Todd Schulte of FWD.US, which supports increased immigration, also noted that people previously safe under DACA already are losing protections every day.

Half of the roughly 55,000 diversity-lottery visas now allocated annually would be reallocated based on new merit-based preferences to immigrants from "priority countries" that are underrepresented, according to highlights.

Young immigrants have been granted temporary protection from deportation - as U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services moves to comply with a federal court order directing it to resume accepting DACA renewal applications for previous enrollees in the program. During consideration of the resolution, an amendment to remove the paragraph regarding establishment of a "path to legal status" failed in a ballot vote of 51-48 percent.

President Trump made immigration of all kinds - legal or illegal - his central campaign issue.

Democrats are also refusing to include legislation created to prevent a similar situation in the future.

It helps those whose work permits have expired or will expire before September of this year. Keep these children now adults here in this country. Many outlets also tout the illegals as 'dreamers, ' as if young Americans are not dreamers.

"In its current form I'm probably a no", Representative Michelle Lujan Grisham, a Democrat, said in an interview. "We're optimistic that we'll get a deal", Short said.
