Trump slams immigrants from 's***hole' Haiti, African countries

Judge blocks Trump decision to end young immigrant program US Judge Blocks Trump Move To End DACA Program For Immigrants
Orlando Vargas | 13 January, 2018, 05:38

On Jan. 9, Trump and a bipartisan group from Congress discussed a measure that would keep DACA intact and include Trump's demands for a border wall and other security measures.

DACA has protected about 800,000 people who were brought to the USA illegally as children or came with families who overstayed visas. Trump told senators in the Oval Office, a source briefed on the meeting told CNN.

The administration announced earlier this week that it was removing the protection for El Salvador. The United States is essentially the only home many of them have ever known, and kicking them out of the country would be profoundly un-American. But neither he nor the White House disputed the most controversial of his remarks: using the word "s--hole" to describe Africa nations and saying he would prefer immigrants from countries like Norway instead. Durbin is blunt. He says he doesn't love making all the tradeoffs Republicans are demanding. The Dems will threaten 'shutdown, ' but what they are really doing is shutting down our military, at a time we need it most. So we'll be talking to the White House about that and I hope we can move forward with it. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., sitting next to him.

"There has not been a deal reached yet", said White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

"Mr. President you need to be clear though, I think what Senator Feinstein is asking here, when we talk about DACA, we don't want to be back here two years later, you have to have security", said McCarthy. "The President invited us to - at his little get-together in the Cabinet room - to come up with proposals, and we did".

The agreement includes the parameters of the Dream Act, which will provide a 12-year pathway for citizenship for Dreamers, young immigrants brought to the country by family members without their choice.

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.

"There are scores of Republicans who have shifted their position to follow the president", said Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa.

Backed by the White House, Democratic and Republican lawmakers dug into a politically fraught search for compromise on immigration Wednesday, seeking to take advantage of a window of opportunity opened by President Donald Trump.

The president seemed fully cognizant of the unsafe political territory he was entering, and repeatedly said in the meeting that he planned to push for a "comprehensive" immigration reform bill after reaching a deal on DACA.

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".

Alsup said the Trump administration must start accepting DACA renewal applications again, but he also said the federal government isn't required to accept applications from people who have never before applied to be covered by DACA. Cotton, Perdue, Goodlatte and McCarthy pushed back at the Durbin and Graham proposal.

Asked about the remarks, White House spokesman Raj Shah did not deny them.

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

On Thursday, House Speaker Ryan said he wanted a long-term fix to the illegal immigrant problem, not an no-strings amnesty, and he endorsed the Goodlatte/McCaul bill.

Trump says Friday: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

"There's still a ways to go", he said. "We are now working to build support for that deal in Congress", the statement read. "President Trump is fighting for an empty symbol rather than smart policy that will actually produce better security at our borders".
