Gov. Rick Scott responds to President Trump's 'sh**hole' comment

DACA protects hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children from deportation.

The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that Trump appeared optimistic that Congress could reach a decision on the program.

The proposal was presented to the White House for President Donald Trump's consideration before seeking passage in the Senate and House of Representatives.

Durbin and Republican Sen.

"I feel more optimistic than I have since I've been here for three years (in Congress) that we're going to get a healthy compromise on immigration", said Republican Representative Carlos Curbelo, who has offered legislative proposals to help Dreamers. "That was a shock, I think, to the press as well as to a lot of the people in that room".

A bipartisan group of senators working to resolve the status of young undocumented immigrants, border security and restrictions on legal migration has offered an opening bid on an agreement and is seeking support from fellow senators and President Donald Trump. Both Cornyn and Durbin are part of a separate negotiating group comprised of the second-ranking senator and congressman on both sides of the aisle.

In bluntly vulgar language, President Donald Trump questioned Thursday why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "s-thole countries" in Africa rather than places like Norway, as he rejected a bipartisan immigration deal, according to people briefed on the extraordinary Oval Office conversation.

In September the Trump administration announced plans to end [JURIST report] the DACA program, which was subsequently challenged by state attorneys general and individuals [JURIST reports].

Without the President's buy-in, the work of the group can't reach the Senate floor, Republican leadership said. And at that point the president, we're told by Democrats, pushed back, and said, why would we want them?

Meanwhile, there is "no reason" the government should shut down over DACA, said Short. Among them are Kate's Law, which enhances penalties for illegal immigrants who re-enter the country after being deported, and mandatory use of e-Verify, an electronic employment authorization system. Bob Goodlatte, Kevin McCarthy and Mario Diaz-Balart were also at the Trump meeting on Thursday.

Prospects for a Democratic takeover of the House have improved in recent weeks thanks to several high-profile Republicans retiring at the end of this term.

"It is time for Congress to give us a lasting solution that will leave no doubt that the Dreamers are American and they are here to stay", Becerra said.

"We are now working to build support for that deal in Congress", they added.

"As a nation, we have a moral and humanitarian obligation to 'Dreamers, '" Bishop Vasquez said.

LOU BARLETTA: We need to make sure that we're not going to have another 800,000 or million people coming into the country. It was not clear whether the senators' deal would somehow target parents or siblings seeking entry.

The House version will contain $30 billion for a border wall with Mexico, and an end to chain migration and the visa lottery system.
