And on the Senate side of Capitol Hill, Texas Sen.
"While DACA and border security were both discussed, excluding the wall was certainly not agreed to", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said.
Even if a DACA recipient has good credit, it is not a guarantee for a loan. However, the growing weight of research and testimony from academics demonstrates that immigrants, legal and illegal, are conspicuously more law-abiding when compared to the native-born of the United States.
UC schools are among those offering student loans to DACA students, and they've directed campus police not to question or detain individuals based on their immigration status.
The congressional Democratic leaders said they reached a deal with Trump to fix DACA that wouldn't include building the wall on the Mexican border, but according to Pelosi, would provide a path to citizenship for Dreamers. However, she said it's mostly a continuation of the seven-year-old uncertainty started in the days of the failed DREAM Act. And later Thursday, while visiting Florida in the wake of Hurricane Irma, Trump made remarks that appear to contradict those that had earlier comforted Grassley.
Trump has come under fire from both sides of the decision, including from critics among his base that say if the DACA provisions are allowed to stay, that would be tantamount to allowing amnesty for the young people brought illegally into the United States.
"CHAIN MIGRATION can not be allowed to be part of any legislation on Immigration!" "What package? We don't have a package yet, so we don't know".
"He said, 'We don't have to have the wall on this bill, '" recalled Cuellar.
And here we have the president basically defending a deal that he says hasn't been reached.
Amid negotiations between President Trump and Democrats over the status of Dreamers, Republican lawmakers passed legislation that could lead to wholesale crackdowns on immigrant communities. "At the same time, I can tell you we're working in a bicameral way to try to find a reasonable solution on DACA and other immigration-related issues".
White House legislative director Marc Short said later in an MSNBC interview that "ending chain migration is an important part" of immigration reform. Then President Trump told reporters that a deal was in the works - and that wall funding wasn't included.
"We also urged the President to make permanent the cost-sharing reduction payments, and those discussions will continue", they said in a joint statement.
Sean Hannity, the Fox News host, said Trump's reported deal was akin to the broken pledge of President George H.W. Bush, who famously said, "Read my lips".
So swift and intense was the backlash that it sent Trump scrambling to reject the Democrats' narrative and reaffirm his commitment to immigration and border security campaign pledges.
"The Trump administration will not be discussing amnesty", she said.
The lawsuit notes that the majority of immigrants eligible for DACA are from Mexico, and Trump has made many statements hostile to Mexicans, including attacking a judge of Mexican descent and falsely linking Mexican immigrants to crime, drugs and rape.
Conservative commentator Ann Coulter - who once wrote a book called In Trump We Trust - was similarly incensed, going so far as to tweet "At this point, who DOESN'T want Trump impeached?" "But with Donald Trump, the only interpretation that's really meaningful, it's his, and then you have to put it on the clock to see how long it lasts".
