President's Comments on Immigration Called Racist

Trump told senators in the Oval Office, a source briefed on the meeting told CNN.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), who did not attend Tuesday's meeting, criticized Trump earlier that day over a report that the administration ― including ones that have been proven to work, such as surveillance and radar technology ― in order to fund an $18 billion border wall. They listed those countries. Trump said, according to these people, referring to African countries and Haiti.

Trump took particular issue with the characterization of his comments on Haiti. "Do we need more Haitians?'" Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., left, listened as House Homeland Security Border and Maritime Security Subcommittee Chairwoman Rep. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., spoke during a Wednesday news conference, on Capitol Hill in Washington. Dick Durbin (D-IL), Sen.

The bishops also "are pleased to see the mutual understanding that ensuring protection for these young people should be the first step in the systematic reform of our outdated immigration laws", said Bishop Joe Vasquez of Austin, Texas, referring to those now protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

"I think the right answer to someone who might be eligible for DACA is to make sure they research the situation well, that they are well prepared and they also have a backup plan because most of the DACA recipients may actually be eligible for some other form of relief", Asser said. "The President invited us to - at his little get-together in the Cabinet room - to come up with proposals, and we did".

Top House Democrat Nancy Pelosi says an immigration working group is just "five white guys".

There is another group of Senate Republicans to try and get a DACA deal done before the January 19 government funding shutdown, though the agreement made Thursday is widely seen as the only bipartisan measure in the Senate. Lindsay Graham said he addressed the president over the comments.

A White House spokesman declined to offer an immediate comment on Trump's remarks.

President Donald Trump on Friday denied using certain "language" as fury spread inside and outside the United States over his comments about immigration during a private meeting with lawmakers.

The DC attorney general Karl A. Racine reacted on Twitter, writing that he is "proud to be Haitian-American, and I will continue to fight for the dignity and safety of every member of the District's immigrant communities".

On combating terrorism in Jammu and Kashmir, the Army Chief asserted that "We may have neutralised several terrorists but we have also caught 39 of them alive because we wanted to give them a second chance".

Later, again attempting to nudge the president back on track to a more conservative plan, Senator David Perdue, a Georgia Republican, made a similar pitch for precision.

In an afternoon of drama and confusing developments, three other GOP lawmakers - including two hardliners on immigration - were also in Trump's office for Thursday's meeting, a development sources said Durbin and Graham did not expect.

We've got this bipartisan group, we're at a deal.

R-Va., joins Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti to discuss the bill, one of several proposals being floated as lawmakers try to reach an agreement on a DACA "fix" before the program expires in March.

Trying to decipher President Trump's positions at Tuesday's White House meeting on immigration probably requires the best neuroscientists in the Texas Medical Center as well as an interpreter.

"DACA gave them a more tolerable set of choices, including joining the mainstream workforce", Alsup wrote. "And we can't take one thing for granted". "For that reason, a resolution to the DACA issue must be part of a global deal on the budget".

"President Trump called on Congress to solve the DACA challenge".

Mr. Trump suggested that an immigration agreement could be reached by addressing young immigrants and border security with what he called a "bill of love", then by making comprehensive changes that have long eluded Congress.

Flake is one of a group of six senators who have been meeting privately in hopes of crafting legislation that would prevent around 700,000 Dreamers from being subject to deportation after Trump ended a program providing them with temporary legal status and work permits.
