Trump Says He Is Open To Path For Dreamers

"That's good. That's excellent", Sen.

Republican senator Lindsey Graham applauded the president's comments and called them a major breakthrough. "Because then we will fail, and it will be on the other side of the aisle that made that happen", he said.

In sum, whether out of necessity or design, Democrats are looking to gain ground on domestic spending and get a dreamer bill out of the Senate. Jeff Flake, a Republican from Arizona, before the White House announcement.

The president's comments seem to lock the White House in on the generosity of the legalization he envisions for Dreamers. In all likelihood, the House won't take up a DACA bill that passes the Senate or will come out with a bill so ludicrous as to prevent reconciliation with the Senate bill.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee said the framework to be announced Monday will be a compromise that "members of both parties can support".

Mr Trump said immigrants protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (Daca) programme could obtain citizenship after "10 to 12 years".

That contradicts his Justice Department and Homeland Security secretary, who have told Congress and the federal courts that DACA is illegal and can not be maintained or extended. "You just got to commit to it. The White House staff has been pretty unreliable, the House is locked down so I think the Senate is the best body to lead the country to a result".

"Yeah, I might do that", Trump said of moving the deadline, which is March 5. "And he's not yet indicated what measure he's willing to sign".

During the shutdown, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, lamented that negotiating with Trump was similar to negotiating with Jell-O because his positions could be so fluid. John Thune of South Dakota, said last week.




On Wednesday, roughly 40 bipartisan lawmakers - many who helped negotiate the end of the government shutdown - met to try to find a way forward on immigration.

Brokering a deal in the Senate is just the first step. They can rightly argue that the scare-mongering racist ads about murderers coming over the border have nothing to do with the dreamers; the ads do, however, have everything to do with the nasty strain of xenophobia Trump articulated in his "shithole" remarks.

Democrats countered that while encouraged, everything can change with Trump. They are now frequently referred to as illegal or unlawful immigrants despite the fact that they entered the nation through no fault of their own.

But he also once said that he wanted "a bill of love" to address the fate of the DACA recipients. Members of Congress acknowledge that's a long shot even as they recognize in the same breath it's essential to preserving their majority.

Trump campaigned for the presidency with nativist rhetoric that assailed the threat from outsiders, especially Mexicans and Muslims. For almost an hour, the President entertained cameras in a bipartisan meeting where Trump pronounced that his immigration plan would be "a bill of love".

"Tell them not to be concerned". But two days later, the tone shifted.

However, the President tweeted that "if there is no Wall, there is no DACA".

Trump said he was confident that a deal can be reached on the issue. But I won't know until I see it.

Republican Sen. David Perdue of Georgia, an immigration hard-liner aligned with the White House, said he spoke with Trump on Wednesday about this issue and that the President remains committed to the core pillars he had previously laid out.
