The men reportedly quieted down after that, and though no deal was finalized, the group "agreed that the President would support enshrining DACA protections into law, and encourage the House and Senate to act", Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer said in a statement to The Hill.
Another reporter asked how the White House defines amnesty and whether amnesty includes a path to citizenship for "Dreamers" or "other undocumented people". "I don't know what to believe".
Immigration advocates say while they're hopeful a DACA deal could happen, comprehensive immigration reform should be the long-term goal. On both these deals, Trump faced strong opposition from his party, from Republican leadership in the first case and from the conservative grass roots in this most recent deal.
Those conversations need to be held in the six months DREAMers have left as DACA expires.
To be honest, this administration is so sexist that I'm frankly sort of surprised that line worked at all.
Some conservative lawmakers see the president's compromise as a betrayal. "He is taking and shaking them and saying wake up", said Jean McGrath. "No promise is credible", Iowa Congressman Steve King tweeted. It allowed me to get a job that did not mistreat me and did not underpay me. The President meeting with Democrat leaders, who say they're working on an agreement to help DACA recipients. "It'll be funded a little bit later". "But very importantly, what we want: We have to have a wall", Trump said. "And I think at the end of the day he is going to make sure that his priorities are a part of any deal that gets made". It is obvious that our corporate tax rate (one of the highest in the world) is making it more profitable for international companies to keep and invest their money off shore.
"Without Republicans in his corner, well, the president has few options. wait around or forge ahead on his own", Hannity said.
Fifteen states are reportedly looking to sue Trump over the decision to dismantle the programme.
He said Trump will pay "severe political consequences" if he backs away from strict border security and wall construction.
Trump's predecessor Barack Obama protected such immigrants, known as "dreamers", through his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) order. I read their comments more like "A deal has been reached in principle".
