Trump's DACA 'deal' with Democrats may impact key GOP elections

The complaint was filed less than a day after President Trump met with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY and agreed to protect certain immigrants brought illegally into the U.S.as children and enhancements to USA border security.

Pelosi and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said they left that dinner with a framework in hand: Legal protections for "Dreamers", paired with funding for border security measures - excluding the wall.

Trump had dinner at the White House Wednesday night with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-New York, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-California.

Pelosi at her weekly press conference Thursday clarified Democrats had not reached agreement with Trump on a proposal. "Plus BIG border security".

After Trump gave a deadline of six months to the Congress to address the situation and come up with an alternative, Republican lawmakers promised quick work to help undocumented immigrants.

"It's what Jesus would have done in similar circumstances, I believe", DACA supporter Liz Masterson said. After all, Trump appeared to be against the program throughout his campaign.

"They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own - brought in by parents at young age", he wrote.

"We're talking about taking care of people, people who were brought here, people who've done a good job".




Asked if he viewed the president as focusing on legalization over enforcement, Barletta said no: "I have no idea what happened in that room last night, so I'm not going to even speculate".

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. "If I don't get the wall, then we will become the obstructionists", he said.

Though they both fall under the broad umbrella of immigration, they are totally separate issues.

CONFUSION reigned in the USA yesterday over Donald Trump's plan to deport 800,000 illegal immigrants who came to the country as children.

Other Republicans or Independents who have discussed the possibility of a Trump impeachment include Representative Justin Amash (R-Mich.), Representative Carlos Curbelo (R-Fla.) and Senator Angus King (I-ME). And as I recall, for a lot of the people who initially (or at least eventually) wound up supporting the president, amnesty was pretty much a deal breaker.

"Mostly it's emotional support", Middlehof said, "because of the uncertainty".

Democratic aides said that although there was no final deal, an agreement had been reached.

"That's an important position because we can not make a 2,200 mile (3,540 km) wall a condition for passing the Dream Act and we've been very clear from the start", said Senator Dick Durbin, a senior Democrat who has been working for the past 16 years to legislate protections for the Dreamers. I mean, we always knew there were flaws in his personality, and basically everything that the fancy NPR, Charlie Rose types didn't like about him, that he is an unbelievably tacky vulgarian.
