US again accepting DACA renewal requests after judge bucks Trump

By Lucia Mutikani and Pete Schroeder

And just a reminder - DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", Trump insisted in a series of Friday morning tweets.

"Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and U.S. would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly", Trump tweeted.

However, Durbin never confirmed the deal before meeting with the president.

Trump then suggested the United States should welcome immigrants from places like Norway, whose prime minister met with Trump on Wednesday. "Flake's bipartisan group - the only bipartisan group that has been negotiating a DACA fix - has struck a deal".

As reprehensible as Trump's remarks are, the situation of some 800,000 people known as Dreamers is of such overriding importance that Democrats and Republicans alike must find a way to move past those comments and find a solution. But their victory - first announced by Sen.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the decision to terminate the program on September 5 and said no renewal applications would be accepted after October 5. It's a matter of simple supply and demand: More people available for jobs means lower wages and benefits for all.

Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton and Georgia Sen. Dick Durbin's most recent comments and additional reporting.

"Why do we need more Haitians?" he added, according to the Post account.

White House legislative director Marc Short told reporters on Capitol Hill after the meeting that the President wants a "broader" deal on the family piece than just the covered recipients. "It's the only game in town", Flake said.

Trump's apparent concession so alarmed House majority leader Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, that he interjected himself, although he was careful only to gently contradict the president. "I've said it again and again that, unfortunately, a lot of the conversation in Washington politicizing the [immigration] issue has shadowed what undocumented communities experience every day", Kim said.

African ambassadors demand apology from Trump
Earlier, the 55-nation African Union condemned the remarks, while Botswana and Senegal hauled in the U.S. ambassador to complain. Ghana is widely seen as a stable, peaceful country in an often turbulent region, and has close ties to the United States .

But the bipartisan "Group of Six", which included numerous same players that negotiated the hard right's much maligned 2013 immigration bill - was being squeezed even before Thursday.

Trump's agreement has always been essential to any immigration deal. Sen.

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 newly created group includes four top congressional leaders and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.

"It is time for Congress to give us a lasting solution that will leave no doubt that the Dreamers are American and they are here to stay", Becerra said.

The Republicans, however, are finding themselves in a precarious position. "But overall it's been a pretty successful presidency on the immigration front".

During a Thursday meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform, Trump demanded to know why the United States should accept citizens from what he called "shithole" countries, according to comments first reported by the Washington Post.

And, even if a bill was voted on and passed the Senate, legislation still faces long odds in the Republican-controlled House where there the differences between Democrats and Republicans are even greater.

House Speaker Paul Ryan on Friday called Trump's comments on immigration "unhelpful", in his first public reaction to news that Trump referred to African nations as "s--hole" countries.

"It looks to me like it's shaping up to be a disaster, a calamity that the Democrats have dreamed of and engineered", said Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, long one of the GOP's most outspoken hardliners.

Still, it's unclear how Trump's comments will affect the negotiations for now.

Two of the bargainers - No. 2 Senate Democrat Richard Durbin of IL and Sen.
