White House says judge's blocking end of DACA "outrageous"

Jeff Flake. The group includes Flake and Illinois Democratic Sen.

A representative for the White House could not be reached immediately after the ruling.

Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal, a frequent Trump critic, said on Thursday the comments "smack of blatant racism, the most odious and insidious racism masquerading poorly as immigration policy".

Here's the thing: Anyone who knows anything - including Republican congressional leaders - knows that Trump either said the word "shithole" or something very, very like it.

After Trump and lawmakers spent time meeting privately, the White House and numerous lawmakers said there was agreement to limit the immediate bill to four areas.

Trump also offered a clarification later in Tuesday's meeting - "We do a Phase 1, which is DACA and security, and we do Phase 2, which is comprehensive immigration" - a relieved-looking McCarthy all but leaped from his seat, pointing at Trump like a teacher whose promising student, after several false starts, finally has alighted on the correct answer.

"How do 6 people bind the other 94 in the Senate?"

Separately, 58 per cent of voters say they think marijuana should be made legal for recreational use everywhere in the U.S. "The president made it clear to me on the phone less than an hour ago that he wasn't going to do that".

Trump met with lawmakers at the White House on Tuesday, offering support for an immigration package that would legalize young undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S.as children, known as Dreamers.

Trump gave Congress six months to find a way to allow immigrant approved for the DACA program to remain in the US permanently.

Congress has to make a budget deal by January 19 or face shutting down the federal government - except for essential services. But two immigration hard-liners, Republican Sens.


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".

All of this left lawmakers confused Tuesday as to the future of DACA. Trump told senators in the Oval Office in reference to African countries, according to a source briefed on the meeting, the comments from which were first reported by The Washington Post.

Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton and Georgia Sen.

He also said: "Sadly, Democrats want to stop paying our troops and government workers in order to give a sweetheart deal, not a fair deal, for DACA".

Republicans like Pennsylvania Congressman Lou Barletta on the other.

South Carolina's Tim Scott, the only black Republican senator, said that if Trump really did use those words it would be "disappointing".

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. Trump said, according to these people, referring to African countries and Haiti.

LINDSEY GRAHAM: We had a meeting, and I will tell you that I'm hopeful that that meeting will maybe lead to a breakthrough and we get something done.

He later called it a "joke" of a proposal.

Many Democrats would oppose providing substantial sums on Trump's campaign promise to build a wall along the border with Mexico. That second bill would likely face long odds for passage, considering long-running disagreements over issues like how to handle all 11 million immigrants illegally in the U.S.

Among Republicans, some conservatives are insisting on going further than the steps that Trump has suggested.
