Trump tweets about DACA amid controversy over vulgarity

"This carefully crafted legislation, which is aligned with the White House's immigration priorities, combines enforcement measures and increased border security to enhance public safety, ensure the door remains open to law-abiding immigrants, and restore the rule of law", Goodlatte said in a written statement.

The Trump administration rejected a bipartisan Senate proposal to protect young undocumented immigrants from deportation, saying it needed more work. Lucero said that often, Republican senators were the ones who took stopped to listen to his story while both Democratic and Republican congress members ignored him by getting on their phones.

Huckabee Sanders was asked by a reporter about that plan too, questioning whether it would act as a "poison pill" for being too conservative. "The American people will ultimately judge us on the outcome we achieve, not the process which led to it", Graham said.

As news of Trump's comments spread, even jaded congressional insiders expressed shock. He did not specifically deny using the word "shithole". On Tuesday, Graham had told Trump that he, as President, was in a position to accomplish what none of his predecessors could.

According to Shiori Akimoto, the DACA program coordinator at the East Bay Sanctuary Covenant, a Berkeley-based organization that offers legal services to immigrants and refugees, renewal applications for DACA can not be sent out until the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services responds to Alsup's ruling. "It's very unified", she said. "It puts a new kind of pressure on moderate Republicans in particular to think differently about what steps they take next", said Mary Giovagnoli, a former senior official on immigration policy in the Obama administration.

The Associated Press and other media outlets reported that, according to people present at the meeting, Trump questioned "why the USA would accept more immigrants from Haiti and '(expletive) countries'" in Africa.


"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

In a move rare for any president, Trump let the camera-wielding press pool stay for 55 minutes, which Trump transformed into a reality show episode - one with enormous real consequences for DREAMers in danger of being deported.

SCOTT DETROW, BYLINE: The three Democrats and three Republicans who have been hashing out a DACA agreement say they've got a compromise that deals with border security, with the people now protected by DACA and changes to the legal immigration process that President Trump has called for. And they once again demonstrated his willingness to engage in racially charged statements well beyond the mainstream of USA political discourse.

Trump seems to be defending himself against the furor over his vulgar words to describe African countries.

The White House has responded to The Washington Examiner. "I want a merit-based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level".

'Several of my colleagues and I have reached an agreement that reflects the discussion we had this week with @realDonaldTrump on a solution for Dreamers and border security, ' Gardner wrote, sharing a statement that was co-signed by five of his colleagues. I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs.
