Down on Dreamers? Teachers' union targets Fla. GOP members of Congress

Trump-Immigration-15

Late last week, they ostensibly got their reply: The White House sent the exact same document it had released in October, outlining an immigration "framework" that posited an overhaul of asylum laws, stepped-up interior enforcement, and a broad crackdown on legal immigration on the scale of the Trump-endorsed RAISE Act.

"The 690,000 DACA recipients - who came to this country at the average age of six and have lived here twenty years - deserve certainty", said Napolitano, Johnson and Chertoff in a letter to congressional leaders.

"To no one's surprise, the President started tweeting this morning, denying he used those words", Durbin added. "We need to let the process flow".

Americans must face the fact that whatever else he is, whatever other agenda he carries, Trump harbors troubling racist sentiments that are jeopardizing the well-being of people of color, emboldening racists and, with his latest remarks, triggering worldwide alarm and disgust.

The proposal addresses "chain migration" by making parents of DREAMers ineligible for green cards and making it impossible for them to naturalize, and it would not force an influx of new immigrants.

That's why it is critical that Democrats also be willing take some heat.

Trump tweets: "Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country".

"Following comments by the President, I said my piece directly to him", Graham said in a written statement.

Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, introduced the bill alongside Republican leaders of several other House committees and subcommittees related to immigration and national security. "Why don't we get more people from Norway?'" Durbin told reporters in Chicago. That's a phrase that's anathema to many in Trump's base, and it's not really clear what he means by it.


President Trump told a bipartisan group of lawmakers to keep working on an immigration after a group of senators thought they had one done.

Lucero's been in the US since he was 2. Trump allegedly referred to Haiti and African nations as "s--hole" countries.

Trying to decipher President Trump's positions at Tuesday's White House meeting on immigration probably requires the best neuroscientists in the Texas Medical Center as well as an interpreter.

Taking a swipe at Democrats, he wrote, "Because of the Democrats not being interested in life and safety, DACA has now taken a big step backwards".

Trump said he was only expressing what many people think but won't say about immigrants from economically depressed countries, according to a person who spoke to the president as criticism of his comments ricocheted around the globe. "I am committed to ensuring DREAMers are protected and I will welcome everyone to the table who wants to get this done". I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs.

Democrats are under intense pressure from immigrant-rights organization and liberal pressure groups not to deal with the GOP and to insist only on a bill that grants legal status for Dreamers.

Faced with a wave a criticism at home and overseas, Mr. Trump engaged in a belated attempt at damage control early Friday.

President Donald Trump faced criticism at home and overseas Friday after reports he made profane comments about immigrants from places including Haiti and Africa.
