GOP, Dem Leaders Come to Table to Discuss DACA, Border

In a series of tweets on Thursday, the president said that the wall was "already under construction", implying that the subject of funding and building the wall was not germane to the DACA negotiations.

Following a dinner with Trump at the White House, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and House of Representatives Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said the "productive meeting" focused on "DACA", a program established by former President Barack Obama.

Pelosi at her weekly press conference Thursday clarified Democrats had not reached agreement with Trump on a proposal.

The deal is tied to "BIG" border security, according to a presidential tweet on Thursday, but seems to exclude anything about the wall.

Trump later that morning told reporters that he is "fairly close" to brokering a deal that would protect DACA beneficiaries as well as beef up border security.

In a statement following the Trump administration's announcement to rescind DACA, San Jose Mayor Sam Liccadro said, "Punting the issue to Congress, without any affirmative leadership to enact a legislative solution, amounts to a cowardly cop-out, placing the futures of these young women and men in serious jeopardy". After all, Trump appeared to be against the program throughout his campaign. "Trump wrote, ".They have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own - brought in by parents at young age.

"People want to see that happen", Trump said.

The House's foremost immigration hard-liner, GOP Rep. Steve King of Iowa, addressed Trump over Twitter, writing that if the reports were true, "Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond fix".

The judge criticized the government's use of "arbitrary deadlines" and said "it would be useful to take some of the pressure off the various people, these good accomplished young people who the president talks about with admiration".

The bombshell developments, which were first announced by Schumer and Pelosi and reiterated by Trump himself Thursday morning, were met with immediate outrage from conservatives and put pressure on the President's Republican allies in Congress. Trump admonished Congress to get to work to do something!.

Hundreds are anticipated to gather September 13 at Veterans Park in downtown Painesville to protest President Donald Trump's September 5 announcement rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. This rest of the candidates were complete idiots, so of course, you had to 100 percent support Trump.

The wall will come later, we're right now renovating large sections of wall, massive sections, making it brand new.

Ohio's U.S. Senators have both said they want to find a way to allow DACA recipients to stay in the U.S.

"If they've been here for a day, it's not a moral issue".

U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis is overseeing a case in which immigration advocates want to challenge President Donald Trump's decision to end a program that has protected some young immigrants from deportation.

"President Trump's decision to end DACA is a manufactured crisis in response to an artificial deadline from anti-immigrant leaders", said Lorella Praeli, the American Civil Liberties Union's director of immigration policy and campaigns. As soon as he left dinner and reported the results to his lackeys, they assured him that this is, in fact, very much a hill his supporters expect him to die on, which was confirmed in short order by Breitbart's outraged yowling.

He said "there was no deal" and denied that Democrats claimed otherwise.
