Trump seeks $33b for wall, suggests Dreamer citizenship path

Trump seeks $33b for wall, suggests Dreamer citizenship path

She adds that: "The president wants to lead on this issue". For instance, on Wednesday the president said he would favor allowing Dreamers to "morph" into citizenship over 10-12 years. "If they've worked hard they've done terrifically, whether they have a little company, or whether they've worked, whatever they're doing, if they do a great job I think it's a nice thing to have the incentive of after a period of years being able to be a citizen", Trump said. But even as Trump's actions threatened almost 700,000 young immigrants with deportation when the program expires March 5, he has urged Congress to find a permanent solution that could allow them to live and work in the country legally.

Trump is also asking Congress for a $25-billion (U.S.) trust fund to pay for a southern border wall and enhanced security at ports of entry and along the U.S.

But Democrats and Republicans are talking, as Dreamers edge toward the March 5 cliff. "That's another issue that's been held hostage by this unrelated immigration issue known as DACA, which everybody has heard so much about", The Hill quoted Cornyn.

Trump campaigned for the presidency with nativist rhetoric that assailed the threat from outsiders, especially Mexicans and Muslims. If the immigration impasse is to be surmounted, a solution needs to emerge quickly.

The White House official sold the plan as a "compromise position" that it believes would get 60 votes in the Senate - a point White House officials underscored multiple times on Thursday - and then could be "sent over to the House for additional improvement and modification".

Trump's remarks drew support from Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).

Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican from SC who's been a key part of congressional immigration negotiations, immediately praised Trump's comments after they were made public.

"President Trump's support for a pathway to citizenship will help us get strong border security measures as we work to modernize a broken immigration system", Graham tweeted Wednesday.

As soon as the federal government resumed-after Democrats relented on their immigration demands to conclude the shutdown-Trump and Senate Minority Leader Sen.

Open champion, had made it to the final in Auckland a week before this year's Australian Open, losing to Roberto Bautista Agut. It took Fabio Fognini almost eight years, but he's finally avenged a fourth-round loss to Julien Benneteau at Wimbledon.

"Tell them not to be concerned" as the March 5 deadline approaches, Trump said of the Dreamers. "The president is headed in the right direction here", Durbin wrote Wednesday evening on Twitter.

While a foreseeable pathway to getting some kind of bill on the president's desk faces significant hurdles, Democrats are facing an inevitability regarding the immigration issue: funding for President Donald Trump's long-desired wall along the US-Mexico border will have to be included.

Within hours, Trump's off-the-cuff comments to reporters seemed, again, to suggest flexibility.

The White House presented the offer as a major concession aimed at attracting enough votes from Democrats. The problem is his habit to say one thing one day and renege the next.

This includes measures to curb family sponsorship of immigrants and an end or change to the visa lottery programme.

Several lawmakers have expressed frustration in recent weeks that the guidance from the White House has been unclear or inconsistent.

"I would do it under it under oath", the president said, and, "I would love to do that as soon as possible". Some, like Chicago, have filed lawsuits against the Justice Department.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the Flake-Graham-Durbin immigration agreement was "totally unacceptable to the President and should be declared dead on arrival", in a press briefing on January 23. Since Trump took office, both men have focused on sanctuary cities, accusing such places of flouting the law and helping convicted criminals evade deportation. Or perhaps congressional parties should focus on people like chief of staff John Kelly, who stayed in Washington to negotiate while the president hob-nobs with the global elite in Davos.

"You'll have wives and husbands and you'll have sons and daughters, and you'll talk about parents, the parents is a tricky situation because they came here illegally", Trump said.
