Donald Trump blames Democrats for his DACA failures

Dick Durbin said on Wednesday evening that a bipartisan immigration agreement has the support of a majority of the Senate.

Last week, it was reported President Donald Trump allegedly referred to several nations as "s**thole countries" while he was discussing a deal with top lawmakers for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA. Government funding expires midnight Friday without a deal in place, and some government functions will begin to go dark. "This was a deal that was unacceptable from the moment they started reading the provisions of the deal", Trump said.

The U.S. Justice Department is appealing a court order that blocked the Trump administration from shutting down a program that shields more than 700,000 young immigrants from deportation.

Trump has denied making the vulgar remarks in the White House meeting with a bipartisan group of lawmakers, tweeting Friday: "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used". He added that he didn't insult Haiti, allowing for the possibility that he did insult El Salvador and African countries.

Debate over the Dreamers has become extremely contentious in the wake of President Trump's comments last week at a White House meeting on the issue.

"I'm not a racist".

Pressed whether he believes Trump is racist, Hoyer wouldn't initially answer directly, saying, "If you use racist rhetoric, if you pursue policies based upon a racial premise, I consider that to be the definition of a racist". "That I can tell you".

Trump said this action would provide an opportunity for Congress to take meaningful action on immigration reform that also focuses on the safety of Americans.

DACA has been the subject of intense negotiations on Capitol Hill in recent weeks as Democrats and Republicans try to craft an agreement that would give Dreamers a pathway to citizenship. First, not every Republican is on board.

"DACA is probably dead because the Democrats don't really want it, they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our Military", the 45th POTUS declared.

"The president certainly doesn't want a shutdown".

Taking to social media Sunday morning, the president said DACA is "probably dead".

But the president has made clear there are four components to that: "there's a DACA solution, there's a border security solution, and then we need to deal with the diversity lottery visa and chain migration", Cornyn told reporters.

The White House on Wednesday (Jan 17) threw its support behind a Republican proposal to avert a government shutdown at week's end with a one-month extension in funding, but it was unclear whether there were enough votes to pass it in Congress. The program protected young undocumented immigrants who came to the USA as children from deportation. "The biggest loser will be our rapidly rebuilding Military, at a time we need it more than ever", Trump said in a Twitter post. Presumably Trump disparaging "shithole" countries won't improve those numbers for Republicans.

"We think we'll avoid a shutdown". "We have a lot of sticking points, but they are all Democrat sticking points".

    So the White House was essentially - as Breitbart correctly pointed out - thumbing its nose at the idea of a bipartisan DACA deal. But any bipartisan agreement could be derailed by lawmakers who oppose any concessions on immigration rights or security issues.
