"These are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States".

The NAACP is accusing Trump of "lowbrow, callous and unfiltered racism".

Diaz says the meeting was a fascinating window into how Trump negotiates.

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

"Americans have been debating how to best fix the country's immigration system for decades", they wrote in the WSJ.

He says they hope whatever immigration legislation comes out of Washington includes some sort of deal for the Dreamers.

DACA has protected about 800,000 people who were brought to the US illegally as children or came with families who overstayed visas. Trump's request covers 74 miles of border wall as part of a 10-year, $18 billion proposal.

The remarks leaked out, transforming a debate about saving from deportation some 700,000 young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children into another drama about Trump himself. He also called for ending the diversity visa lottery, a State Department program that gives residents of nations with few migrants coming to the us a chance for a green card, and for ending family-based migration (called "chain migration" by its opponents) that allows extended family members of immigrants already in the USA legally to come to the U.S.as well.

Durbin and Graham were told on Thursday that Trump would not agree to the deal. Trump was referring to the African countries and Haiti, the people said.

"We have been working for four months and have reached an agreement in principle that addresses border security, the diversity visa lottery, chain migration/family reunification, and the Dream Act", the senators said.

The two people spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly discuss the Oval Office meeting.

He says the focus now will be a push for immigration reform legislation, which is in discussion on Capitol Hill. A senior Republican congressional aide, who did not want to be named, noted that the White House was briefed on the senators' proposal and said, "It's clear it's a non-starter".

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Thursday afternoon: "There has not been a deal reached yet".

Bishop Vasquez made the comments in a statement released late January 10 by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

District Judge William Alsup, from the Northern District Court of California, issued his decision on Tuesday in which he described Trump's decision in September 2017 to end DACA and to give Congress until March 5 to resolve the situation of its beneficiaries as "arbitrary and capricious".

That's according to a spokesman for Arizona Republican Sen. "He also said he would take the heat for both Republicans and Democrats if they get criticism over a compromise immigration measure, adding that his "whole life has been heat" and that to a certain extent he prefers it that way".

On Twitter, the president later clarified that he does consider DACA and border wall funding to be tied together.

"We are at a deal", Sen.

The White House ripped the decision in a statement Wednesday morning, saying that it was "outrageous, especially in light of the President's successful bipartisan meeting with House and Senate members at the White House on the same day".
