Local immigrants travel to Washington to fight for Dreamers

Local immigrants travel to Washington to fight for Dreamers

The development comes as the White House and lawmakers are wrangling over immigration reform, with Democrats demanding protections for Dreamers.

President Donald Trump was once again undermined in court by his own tweets. So eager were they to cover that up that they issued a fake transcript that did not include him saying he would vote for a clean DACA bill before a larger immigration package and the border wall (they later issued a more accurate one, after their censorship of the proceedings was reported).

Back in November, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tried to deny that Trump called the United States justice system a "laughingstock" by claiming he said the "process" of how our country handles terror attacks "has people calling us" a joke and a laughingstock. A senior Republican congressional aide, who did not want to be named, noted that the White House was briefed on the senators' proposal and said, "It's clear it's a non-starter".

The group's proposal also did not fully end family unification, also known as "chain migration", and only delayed the ability of Dreamers to bring in some other family members, including their adult siblings.

The so-called Dreamers were protected from deportation under the policy enacted in 2012 during Barack Obama's presidency.

Negotiations continue on Thursday on how to handle the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA program.

Second-ranking Senate Democrat Dick Durbin of IL released a joint statement by the six Senate negotiators-three Republicans and three Democrats-that said their plan addresses Trump's insistence on addressing border security, limits to family priority in immigration and an end to a visa lottery to promote diversity. "We are now working to build support for that deal in Congress", they added. "I think we have a long way to go", he told reporters.

Texas man charged with capital murder in death of adopted daughter
After two weeks of looking, searchers found Sherin's body less than a mile from the house. The punishment for that ranges from two to 20 years in prison with a fine up to $10,000.

"He genuinely cares and has a compassionate point of view, but he mentioned border security", said Tillis.

Cotton said the plan falls short of Trump's request for border wall funds.

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.

"I'm not talking amnesty at all", Trump was quoted on Thursday by the Wall Street Journal.

Cotton said he's willing to support legal residence for the DACA recipients, with the right to eventually gain United States citizenship. Democrats have been willing to discuss changes to those programs, but aren't willing to go almost as far as people like Cotton or hardline White House advisers like Stephen Miller want. At the time, the White House gave some beneficiaries whose DACA statuses expire before the March date one final chance to renew their statuses.

Texas Senator John Cornyn, the second ranking member of Senate Republicans, says he'd be surprised if an immigration deal can be completed by then.

"We have different groups working on it right now".
