Trump, Bipartisan Lawmakers Discuss Immigration Reform

Trump, Bipartisan Lawmakers Discuss Immigration Reform

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump opened up the curtain of Washington negotiations as he invited the press to stay for almost an hour and broadcast a Cabinet Room meeting with Democratic and Republican lawmakers Wednesday.

Led by Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte and Homeland Security Chairman Michael McCaul, the bill would curtail chain migration and end the Diversity Visa Lottery, which President Trump said is critical to any deal.

Congress has less than two weeks - until January 19 - to potentially pass a budget deal to lift spending caps and a governmentwide funding package that funds the rest of the fiscal year.

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. "In order to secure it, we need a wall".

The goal of the White House meeting was to discuss how to reach an agreement between Democrats and Republicans, while still accomplishing the President's push for a wall along the USA border with Mexico and other changes to the U.S. immigration system - something Democrats widely oppose.

President Donald Trump's 55-minute televised meeting on immigration with bipartisan lawmakers on Tuesday gave the public a raw look into the president's negotiating tactics and understanding of public policy.

"It just shows everyone how broken and unfair our Court System is when the opposing side in a case (such as DACA) always runs to the 9 Circuit and nearly always wins before being reversed by higher courts", Trump tweeted Wednesday morning. "The parents that we presume they brought them here that we're not talking about now, they don't wanna deport them either".

Raiders to make Jon Gruden highest-paid coach in National Football League history
ESPN reported that Davis was in hot pursuit for Gruden with a persuasive offer that included an ownership stake in the Raiders. Gruden last coached in the National Football League in 2008 with the Buccaneers, whom he led to a Super Bowl title in 2002.

Obama instituted the program to protect young people whose parents brought them into the country as minors when they entered the USA without legal permission.

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

Kelly often discussed being open to meeting with Democrats as much as Republicans, and spoke of sympathy toward the DACA population. However, he insisted his border wall plan should be included in the deal. DACA has allowed them to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and get a work permit.

"Drugs are pouring into our country at a record pace, a lot of people are coming in that we can't have", Trump said.

Pennsylvania Rep. Lou Barletta praised Trump's initial decision to rescind the DACA protections set forth by the Obama administration. "We take care of that, and we also take care of security".

Thomas Donohue says a White House meeting Tuesday on immigration is a "good start" even if "I am not sure we agree on exactly what we would like to do". "If they come to me with things not in love with I'm going to do it".
