Democrats say deal struck with Trump to protect immigrants

Pelosi, top White House official open on border security Trump proposes linking immigration cuts to protecting 'Dreamers' -lawmaker
Andrew Cummings | 17 September, 2017, 01:05

Trump met with Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer Wednesday night, and it was reported that they had made a deal on DACA.

In a series of statements to reporters on Thursday, the White House appeared to be debating itself over what the President would agree to on immigration reform, whether any deal hinged on funding for a wall along the US-Mexico border and what exactly constituted amnesty.

"While DACA and border security were both discussed, excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to", she said on Twitter.

Trump later that morning told reporters that he is "fairly close" to brokering a deal that would protect DACA beneficiaries as well as beef up border security. He also said his promised wall along the U.S. -Mexico border would "come later", but would need to happen soon.

Ortiz said it was important for ISU students to show their support, even if they are not directly affected by DACA.

These young people are not criminals, they did not enter the country illegally; they were brought by their parents, who came in search of a better life, in search of the American dream.

Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., said any deal to protect DACA recipients from being deported should include his proposal to restrict the number of people allowed to immigrate to the US legally.

Iowa congressman and racist imbecile Steve King, possibly through sobs so heavy they briefly threatened to overpower him, mournfully declared the president's credibility to be in shambles and his base "blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond fix".

A person briefed on the Wednesday night meeting, who spoke on condition anonymity about the private get-together, said the deal specifies bipartisan legislation that would provide eventual citizenship for the young immigrants.

He tweeted early Thursday making clear that there was "no deal" yet on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals - Trump's administration vowed this month to wind down the programme, which was implemented by his predecessor, Barack Obama. So, to retain his core supporters, Trump seems eager to create the impression that his government is doing something to fight the flow of illegal immigrants.

All that President Trump did is to say, "We will follow the law that Congress passed".

Likewise, he assured the border wall is under construction, writing: "The WALL, which is already under construction in the form of new renovation of old and existing fences and walls, will continue to be built".

Trump's campaign promise to build a wall along the USA border with Mexico was a main selling point that led conservative elected officials such as Justin Simmons, a state representative in Pennsylvania, to throw their support behind the real-estate developer turned politician.

The comments from Short and Pelosi suggested room for compromise on the sensitive issue of immigration, which has been defeating lawmakers for years.

Democrats said it includes plans to enhance boarder security.

"Mostly it's emotional support", Middlehof said, "because of the uncertainty". I voted 4 Trump knowing he wasn't a Conservative & knowing he had no core.
