  • GOP accuses Dems of holding budget deal hostage over DACA

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.

Earlier today the White House branded the federal judge's ruling as "outrageous". "We need the wall for stopping the flow of drugs coming in", Trump said at a news conference Wednesday.

Their bill provides a way to enact DACA through legislation instead of as an Obama Administration order that Trump declined to renew in September, giving DACA its current March end date.

With 11 days to go before a threatened government shut down, Republicans involved in negotiations on a spending deal are becoming increasingly pessimistic that an agreement can be reached.

Donohue's referring to immigrants who came to the United States illegally when they were children - and also to immigrants from countries affected by natural disaster or war, and now living in the US under temporary protection. And, if Republicans can convince Trump to accept more money for border security overall as a win on the wall.

The government could appeal that ruling to a San Francisco-based appeals court - where the administration's travel ban has run into legal problems. "They're just not agreeing to the spending caps ..."

Congressional leaders met with Trump at the White House last Thursday, but Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said the president's call for a wall to be part of the deal may have poisoned the well.

The White House has since issued a correction that now includes Trump's words on the matter. But lawmakers said that is not likely at Tuesday's meeting as they consider options for resolving the standoff with Trump.

President Donald Trump called on bipartisan lawmakers Tuesday to both come up with "a bill of love" to keep thousands of young undocumented immigrants from having to leave the country but also deliver on his campaign promise of a wall and border security, in a wide-ranging meeting that played in full view of the public.

Bargainers seeking a bipartisan immigration accord plan to resume talks quickly. A Republican source in the room told CNN that lawmakers didn't know the press would be in the White House meeting for so long.

Trump ended the Obama-era protections in September, extending the program until March 2017, leaving it to Congress to forge a permanent solution for the almost 800,000 young illegals. In exchange, Trump and Republicans want toughened border protections and tightened restrictions on others trying to migrate to this country.

King added that an attempt to put any undocumented immigrants on the pathway to citizenship is a ploy to expand the Democratic voting block.
