The Public Pulse: No standalone deal on DACA


"Now, it's up to the Democrats, but they should not be concerned". On Wednesday, he expressed an openness to giving Daca recipients a path to citizenship - something many of his supporters deride as amnesty for lawbreakers.

But the White House rejected Schumer's offer and after the government reopened from a weekend shutdown, Schumer rescinded the offer.

"I like him! I like Schumer!"

In Wednesday's conversation with reporters, Mr Trump also said he is prepared to be questioned under oath as part of an investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 United States presidential election.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican from SC who's been a key part of congressional immigration negotiations, immediately praised Trump's comments after they were made public. "And the President wants to lead on this issue, and that's exactly what we're going to do", Sanders said Wednesday. "I truly appreciate President Trump making it clear that he supports a path to citizenship for DACA recipients".

On Tuesday's broadcast of MSNBC's "Rachel Maddow Show", Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that the Democrats in the Senate "came to the view that" if the government shutdown continued, the country would lose support for the shutdown and for the DREAMers because people "don't want to the government shut down for" DREAMers.

"I don't believe the president can extend this by executive order, and March 5, a lot of bad things begin to happen", Graham said earlier this month. "I'm not guaranteeing it because I want to put a little bit of - but I certainly have the right to do it".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has said if senators can not produce a compromise plan by February 8, he would open a debate on immigration legislation that would be "fair to all sides". "So, we cut the best deal that we could". The president said he thinks he will get a wall and great border security.

The President also again emphasized the need for an immigration deal to include $25 billion this year for his border wall, and another $5 billion for other immigration enforcement efforts. "But we will build it way under".

On chain migration, the President seemed to saw the only visa categories would be for spouses and minor children, but called parents a "tricky situation".

Their goal is to produce a bipartisan package to protect from deportation the "Dreamers" - hundreds of thousands of immigrants in the US illegally after being brought here as children - and to provide billions to toughen border security.

He repeated his complaints about the diversity lottery - incorrectly suggesting that countries select nefarious characters for the randomly-selected immigrants that still go through vetting - but said it could be replaced or ended. "It'd be wonderful if we could fight for it", Gonzales said. It's a bad system.

"As a result of the shutdown, the Democratic leader - who said he voted against the four week continuing resolution because he didn't like continuing resolutions - he's guaranteed us at least two more continuing resolutions, even if the spending caps were agreed upon in the next few days", Cornyn said. Or perhaps congressional parties should focus on people like chief of staff John Kelly, who stayed in Washington to negotiate while the president hob-nobs with the global elite in Davos.
