With cameras rolling, Trump urges both parties to cut deals on immigration

Lawmakers in both parties are digging in before the meeting among President Donald Trump, top administration officials and 20 lawmakers from both parties to see if they can agree on an immigration deal that would include protection for the young immigrants.

In September, Trump said he was scrapping the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, but then delayed enforcement to give Congress six months - until March - to craft a lasting solution. Democrats and Republicans are set to resume negotiations Wednesday. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, a 2013 immigration reform veteran.

President Donald Trump signaled Tuesday he could support a deal to allow hundreds of thousands of immigrants living in the country illegally to keep their status, but only as part of a broader border security deal. They're people not legally in the United States who were younger than 31 in 2012, came to this country when they were younger than 16 and have lived in the United States since 2007. But a report from The New York Times on Monday makes it clearer than ever that Trump cares less about border security and more about erecting a giant, meaningless monument to his ego.

The goal of the White House meeting was to discuss how to reach an agreement between Democrats and Republicans, while still accomplishing the President's push for a wall along the United States border with Mexico and other changes to the USA immigration system - something Democrats widely oppose.

But no one at the time questioned Obama's fitness for office, even though he was a first-term senator with limited executive governing experience at the time he was elected to the White House.

Roy Beck, who has led NumbersUSA for over 20 years and jokes that the organization is known as the "great anti-amnesty organization", said: "We're open to it". A few days ago, he once again asked Congress for the necessary funding for this wall, which means that American citizens are definitely going to be paying for it. Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins explains why this project must be halted before we waste billions of dollars on a project that will do absolutely nothing for this country.

"One of the risks we run into is we sort of start spiraling out of control back into comprehensive immigration reform, and then nothing gets done", said Cornyn. "You are not that far away from comprehensive immigration reform". "I'll take all the heat you want to give me, and I'll take the heat off both the Democrats and the Republicans".

What a "wall" would look like has been the subject of debate among Republicans. "I don't think it's going to be that complicated". Dick Durbin, D- Ill. told Trump he would find Democratic support on some elements of border security.

"Just to be clear you weren't there for the entire negotiation, because the deal didn't take place until after you guys left", Sanders said.

Trump as recently as last weekend said he wouldn't sign legislation addressing DACA unless Congress agreed to an overhaul of the legal immigration system, saying any deal must include an overhaul of the family-based immigration system as well as an end to the diversity visa lottery, which draws immigrants from under-represented parts of a world. But in the meeting he indicated a willingness to compromise with Democrats, whose votes are needed in the narrowly divided Senate. And yeah, they're going to have border patrols there to make sure that doesn't happen, just like we already have now that clearly isn't stopping the problem enough for republicans.
