White House not denying Trump used profanity to describe African countries

Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., told reporters on Capitol Hill. Trump's sign-off would be crucial to any hopes of pushing a compromise on the divisive issue through Congress - but the White House didn't appear to be on board.

Alsup said lawyers in favor of DACA clearly demonstrated that the young immigrants "were likely to suffer serious, irreparable harm" without court action.

"What about a clean DACA bill now, with a commitment that we go into a comprehensive immigration reform procedure?" proposed Feinstein.

This was the cardinal campaign promise on which Trump was elected president. And as NPR congressional correspondent Scott Detrow reports, there's also the hard work of selling a bill to the lawmakers who will need to vote on it.

A new Republican bill being introduced Wednesday would allow young undocumented immigrants who receive protection from deportation under the expiring Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA) program to receive three-year renewable legal status.

The Flake-Durbin-Graham group had also been discussing border security and other issues such as preferential treatment for family members of immigrants already in the U.S. Details were not immediately available on what the bargainers had signed off on. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., told reporters there was more negotiating to be done.

"We will fight at every turn for their rights and opportunities so they may continue to contribute to America", he added. You have Democrats like Representative Joaquin Castro of Texas on one side.

Obama decided that one aspect of his selective enforcement would be allowing young people who entered illegally before their 16th birthday (such as children brought in by their parents) to apply for protection from deportation.

To put it mildly, Trump has complicated DACA negotiations for Republican leaders in Congress.

LOU BARLETTA: We need to make sure that we're not going to have another 800,000 or million people coming into the country.

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.

DETROW: Of course the bill doesn't have to pass unanimously. Top House Democrat Nancy Pelosi of California was dismissive as well. Some want big reductions in legal immigration, too.

The analysis of why Trump let the cameras stay boiled down to this: After questions were raised about his mental stability in Michael Wolff's new book, "Fire and Fury", Trump wanted to be seen running a bipartisan meeting - and that's what he did.

The Group of No. 2s - Cornyn, Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer - is where the center of gravity has shifted toward, at least in the eyes of senior Republicans in both chambers.

He gave Congress until March to come up with a legislative fix. "'Cause as one of the staffers mentioned we don't want to have to come back to the same problem 20 years from now". She resents the current political dynamic. A permanent way to protect DACA recipients and provide a path to citizenship is necessary, he said.

Surprising the two members of the "group of six" by having hardline immigration Republicans waiting for them when they arrived at the White House, all of whom opposed their agreement in principle.

ABRAR: And we have to ultimately deal with whatever they're throwing at us and be careful to respond to whatever it is. "I'm not saying I want this or I want that".
