Trump disparages immigrants from 's***hole countries'

Donald Trump

"The Democrats seem intent on having people and drugs pour into our country from the Southern Border, risking thousands of lives in the process".

Flake's tweet came after Trump claimed Democrats were willing to risk "thousands of lives" by allowing "people and drugs" to cross into the USA from Mexico.

Second-ranking Senate Democrat Dick Durbin of IL released a joint statement by the six Senate negotiators - three Republicans and three Democrats - that said their plan addresses Trump's insistence on addressing border security, limits to family priority in immigration and an end to a visa lottery to promote diversity.

Heitkamp said she attended a bipartisan White House meeting Tuesday about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program or DACA.

Flake has been among Trump's most vocal Republican critics, blasting the president in a book published last summer and delivering sharp criticism of Trump in a speech last fall announcing his retirement from the Senate.

One attendee, No. 2 Senate Democratic leader Dick Durbin of IL, said, "The sense of urgency, the commitment to DACA, the fact that the president said to me privately as well as publicly, 'I want to get this done, ' I'm going to take him as his word".

The diversity lottery would also be eliminated under the deal, freeing up about 50,000 visas offered by the State Department each year to immigrants from places that have not been sending as many immigrants over the past five years.

Let me pick up on what happened after that White House meeting on immigration President Donald Trump hosted on Tuesday - the one he turned into an nearly hour-long show, with Sen.

Mr. Trump was not only ready to compromise on DACA, but on the length of the wall as well, and possibly the cost.

Leonardo DiCaprio to Join Family of Tarantino's Manson Movie
The Oscar-winning actor has said yes to joining Tarantino's secretive ninth movie and the deal is expected to close very soon. Several big-name stars are still circling the secretive project, with Margot Robbie and Tom Cruise being eyed for big roles.

Democrats are demanding protection for undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S.as children, known as "dreamers", as part of a spending bill to keep the federal government open after current funding ends January 19.

"There has not been a deal reached yet", Sanders said before expressing the White House's optimism that lawmakers could reach one. They had been shielded from deportation by Obama-era regulations that President Donald Trump has ended and will expire in March.

"It's got to include the wall", Trump said at a news conference Wednesday at the White House.

Trump has said repeatedly that he wants a bipartisan immigration deal.

U.S. Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Roanoke County, introduced a bill to Congress Wednesday that could open the door for so-called dreamers to apply for visas and includes increased spending for border security.

The Trump administration rejected a bipartisan Senate proposal to protect young undocumented immigrants from deportation, saying it needed more work.

The president then suggested the US admit more people from countries like Norway, Whose prime minister he met with on wednesday.

White House spokesperson Raj Shah did not deny the "shithole" remark on Thursday evening, but instead said in a statement that Trump "is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation". They're trying to find a deal to protect young immigrants brought to the US illegally as children.

Some Democrats seized on Trump's slur. It included members of a bipartisan group working on protections for Dreamers, but also Republican lawmakers who have put more of a priority on slashing legal immigration. The White House declined to immediately provide comment, and it was not certain whether the group's plan could pass Congress. They're under pressure to find a breakthrough before a deadline next week that could lead to a government shutdown. That's a phrase that's anathema to many in Trump's base, and it's not really clear what he means by it.

The Republican-run House needs only a majority.
