Ryan says 'no agreement' on DACA between Trump, Democrats

Ryan says 'no agreement' on DACA between Trump, Democrats”

Reports of a deal between Donald Trump and Democratic leaders to protect undocumented migrants who arrived in the U.S. as children have generated ripples of doubt among the president's supporters, some of whom were alarmed by Trump's statement on Thursday that "a wall will come later".

Trump's comment is contradictory to the Twitter messages he wrote in the early hours of Thursday when he said "no deal was made last night at DACA". "Many of them agree with what I'm doing".

Chuck Schumer said in a joint statement Wednesday night that they agreed in principle to a deal with Trump that would enshrine DACA protections into law.

"Across the nation ... it is so important for people to take this opportunity", Fernandez said. "And ultimately we have to have the wall".

Lori directly responded to Trump's former strategist Steve Bannon, who told "60 Minutes" that Catholic leaders only support DACA to fill their pews.

Traveling to Florida Thursday, he tried to reassure his base he hadn't given up.

Republican Rob Portman said, "Congress should act rather than continue the Obama administration's unconstitutional executive action".

"There's a lot of sympathy for the 'Dreamers, '" said Republican Sen.

"Mostly it's emotional support", Middlehof said, "because of the uncertainty". But some conservatives accused the president of selling out.

Interestingly, the poll revealed a disconnect between Trump and the voters who helped elect him as President last November, with 68 percent of self-identified Trump voters saying Congress should let DACA recipients stay.

"I don't think Democrats put as much value on stopping illegal immigration once and for all", he said. "Preserving their status while your administration and Congress work on a permanent solution is the humane way to respond to the situation these innocent young people are facing".

Democrats will be understandably leery of working deals with Trump, whose loyalties shift as his needs do.

Ryan, meanwhile, was adamant after speaking with Trump and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly that no agreement had been reached. "It was a discussion, not an agreement or negotiation".

Simmons said: "I understand the president's frustration with his own party".

The president was reportedly pleased when a Democratic lawmaker said he could "call the bill whatever you want, Mr. President".

"I feel really sad that these students have this extra stress on them", Peterson said.

"Slow down the trains, there's no agreement", said Rep. Dave Brat, R-Va., who warned" "You can make a deal all you want, it's got to get past the House and the Senate".

Trump making an alliance with Democrats on immigration?

"Dreamers" should be encouraged that everyone is talking about this and leaders on both sides, Cordes reports.

Though it's understandable to want to fix immigration laws within the states, putting innocent workers and children at harm's way is not the way to go. The idea of the "the wall" - i.e. a new, sizable barrier along the Mexican-American border, which was a key promise of Trump's campaign - has gained increased relevance as the president appears to negotiate his way towards saving DACA.

Among them was a woman named Norma, who came to the United States when she was 10 years old.

This is the second time in a week that the president has promised to work with Democrats.

But DACA has paved the way for many young immigrants to study at public schools, allowing them to learn English and become part of their community.
