Trump pushes bipartisan immigration deal, but renews demand on border wall

Trump pushes bipartisan immigration deal, but renews demand on border wall

Lawmakers could run into a problem though since Democrats may want to attach a legislative solution for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program for so-called "Dreamers" but President Trump has said recently he would only agree to such legislation only if it includes border wall funding.

Hoyer said Trump himself mentioned fences and technology.

But since it's the day after the Trump administration rescinded temporary protected immigration status for Salvadoran refugees who fled damage from earthquakes in 2001, those negotiations are getting caught up in politics and the budget process.

Ten Democratic Senate seats are up in states Trump won in 2016. Sen.

On March 5, Trump's extension of the DACA program ends. But in exchange, Trump wants a number of immigration-related measures, including increased security to thwart more illegal immigration along the southern USA border with Mexico by constructing a wall he vowed during his 2016 presidential campaign would be built and paid for by Mexico. "Because I respect them", he said.

Lawmakers want Trump's chief of staff John Kelly, who previously served as head of the Department of Homeland Security, to be the point person on the negotiations because they want someone who understands the issue and is constantly invested in talks, the source told CNN. Trump also seemed to imply that he is willing to weather his base's displeasure should it learn that he might be down to grant millions of undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship, telling Senator Lindsey Graham, "I'll take the heat".

A Republican candidate has dropped out of the race to represent New Mexico in the United States House of Representatives.

"You folks are going to have to come up with a solution, and if you do, I'm going to sign that solution", he told them. "President Donald Trump is going to have to bless a deal, [and] that is a formidable challenge". "We've got the time to do it", said Sen.

"It should be a bill of love", Trump said at the White House, where he hosted Republican and Democratic lawmakers for talks on the issue - and allowed journalists rare access to almost an hour of the meeting. "Believe it or not, this is the least important thing that we are talking about, but politically this might be the most important talk about", he said, implying that the wall was little more than a well-marketed concept created to appeal to his voter base.

"If the White House backtracks on what they said they're going to get from a DACA bill, it's going to have negative political consequences for the president", said Ruark.

On Tuesday, Trump said he would agree to anything the lawmakers he met with agreed to. "We really want to work it out", Mr Trump said ahead of a meeting with Republican senators. Yes, but Mexico will pay. "So let's see how much money they send up and then we can decide what kind of a wall".
