Senator Jeff Flake says that there is a bipartisan "deal on immigration"

A bipartisan group of US senators has reached a deal on protecting young immigrant "Dreamers" from deportation as part of a broader immigration plan, a spokesman for Republican Senator Jeff Flake said on Thursday.

Sens. Jeff Flake R-Ariz. and Dick Durbin D-Ill.

A source familiar with the meeting told CNN's Jake Tapper the President did not refer to Haiti as a "shithole" country but Trump did ask why the U.S. needs more Haitians and pushed to "take them out" of the deal.

DACA protects hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children from deportation.

His comments drew a chorus of condemnation inside the United States and internationally, especially in Africa.

Trump ran on a hardline immigration platform during the 2016 presidential election, promising to end DACA and strengthen border protections to increase jobs for United States workers.

The tone of discussion had looked very different early on Thursday. "Also, if they do not have the resource to pay for immigration, we will be helping them with their money order or immigration check", said Gallegos.

"It makes me feel good but I'm sure like other recipients confused".

Ben Marter, a spokesman for Durbin, did not provide details of the conversation but said the senator was "encouraged" by Trump's reaction. Trump said, the Washington Post reported, according to two people briefed on the meeting. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, Michael McCaul of Texas, Raúl Labrador of Idaho, and Martha McSally of Arizona - in a Tuesday op-ed in the Wall Street Journal.

The highly anticipated " Black Widow " standalone movie starring Scarlett Johansson has roped in Jac Schaeffer to pen the script. None of this is to suggest that a Black Widow solo movie will inevitably rob the eponymous heroine of the spotlight she deserves.

Vice President Pence echoed the president's message during an exclusive interview with Martha MacCallum, saying Wednesday: "There is no deal on DACA without a wall".

Promulgated in 2012 by the administration of then president Barack Obama, the DACA policy protected at least 690,000 "dreamers" - young people who arrived in the USA when they were children, from deportation and granted them temporary work permits.

Alsup said the reasoning to end the program was based on a misinterpretation of the law and voided the president's decision.

"Mr. President, you need to be clear, though, " McCarthy said, leaning over from his perch to Trump's left. If we can stay focused on that, I would argue that's the more important thing to focus on, not what was or was not said in a meeting.

The official rollout Wednesday comes a day after Trump met with a bipartisan group lawmakers to discuss the framework of a bill that would legalize DACA recipients before the program expires in March.

The President hopes to advance towards legislation that ensures border security, ends chain migration, does away with the visa lottery programme and tackles the DACA issue in a responsible manner, she added.

"I really believe they're going to come up with a solution to the DACA problem, which has been going on for a long time".

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", Trump wrote in a tweet.
