Republicans can't avoid Trump's wall promises in DACA talks

President Donald Trump held a rare open meeting with lawmakers on immigration policy in the Cabinet Room of the White House on Tuesday allowing the press to watch legislative sausage being made firsthand Trump, Key Lawmakers Negotiating Immigration Policies

"Brought to this country as children by undocumented parents or family members, they are not "illegal" through any fault of their own", Archbishop Gomez wrote.

The immigration talks at the White House are occurring as Trump and Congress face a January 19 deadline to reach agreement on US government spending through the end of September, after they already were forced three times to agree on temporary budget plans when they were unable to reach a longer-term deal.

The Obama-era program shielded those brought to the US illegally as children from deportation and gave them the right to work legally.

Those who seek permanent status would have to follow existing pathways, such as marrying a USA citizen or having a company sponsor an immigrant visa. DACA has allowed them to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and get a work permit.

Late yesterday, US District Judge William Alsup in San Francisco ruled that DACA must remain in place while the litigation is resolved. The ruling, which is certain to be appealed, also said the government does not have to accept applications from those not now covered by DACA. "By any measure, these are the kind of young people that our country should be encouraging. About 5 percent have already started their own business; 15 percent have bought their first homes", he continued. "We are dealing with this problem today because Congress has failed to enforce our laws and secure our borders".

"I feel having the Democrats in with us is absolutely vital because it should be a bipartisan bill".

Teacher handcuffed by officer at school board meeting
Records indicate Deyshia Hargrave was booked into the city jail with remaining after being forbidden and resisting an officer . On Tuesday morning, Hargrave's Facebook page was filled with supportive comments, some thanking her for taking a stand.

"In a letter to congressional leaders in September, more than 800 executives representing every sector of the economy agreed that DACA youths contribute more than $460 billion to our economy and another $24 billion in taxes", he said.

The bill's appropriation for a border wall is likely to meet opposition by Democratic lawmakers who insisted Monday they were open to border security funding for any DACA fix but opposed to a physical wall. "Systematic reform of our immigration policy is absolutely vital to our nation's future".

"You need the wall".

He criticized chain migration and visa lotteries for the way they fail to ensure quality people immigrate to the United States, saying people who end up in lotteries are the "worst of the worst".

But it also includes a number of changes Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has said she needs to stop the new surge of illegal immigrants who have figured out how to game the current system. How can the GOP give Trump a win on the wall without alienating Democrats from a bipartisan solution on DACA?

Then, Trump claimed, comprehensive immigration reform could be easy.
