Calling Illegal Immigrants 'Dreamers' Is A 'Trap'

President Donald Trump, facing sagging approval ratings in a midterm election year, is seeking to rally a deeply divided nation in Tuesday night's State of the Union address with optimism about the growing economy and calls for action on immigration, trade and infrastructure rebuilding.

Overall, the five Republican groups had about $30 million more in cash on hand than the five Democratic groups combined.

Just two days after issuing a call for bipartisanship, President Donald Trump returned Thursday to needling Democrats and turned to the prospect of bouncing them from office in the 2018 election.

Trump's proposed plan is a compromise that offers legalization for 1.8 million people, which is more than double the 700,000 current DACA recipients, in exchange for border security funding and a move to a merit-based immigration system.

Resolving the DACA dilemma, boosting border security and curbing legal immigration "are all hand in glove", Meadows said. He made allusions to how America is great but then he forgot to mention immigrants.

The White House's immigration plan is not a "compromise".

Trump has said he is open to extending the deadline and some Republicans have said they would welcome the idea.

Rather, what I think we're seeing is a reshaping of the character of the two major political parties, the emergence of Trump-Republican and anti-Trump-Democratic parties from the dried husks of the parties of George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. We recognize the potential that, if a federal injunction is lifted, a lack of a congressional deal for DACA beneficiaries will expose them to expedited deportation because they've given all their contact information to the federal government.

"I mean you talk as if you aren't the president who's in the driver seat".

But the president's full remarks were unavailable as the reporters present were told to shut down their cameras and were escorted out.

Meadows said if the Senate bill looked anything like what Thune sketched out, it would be a "nonstarter" in the House.

"Our Dreamers deserve to know that we respect their values and grit", Becerra said in a statement. "We're going to solve the problem". "That's not good. We have to change that", the president said of the Democrats.

Trump's tweet on Thursday said, "March 5th is rapidly approaching".

'To suggest that we're going to give, in my mind, a clean DACA for a few billion dollars, that will not really secure our border is a non-starter, ' Meadows said. John Cornyn of Texas, the second-ranking Senate GOP leader.

Now there's an attempt by Republicans to declassify a memo they wrote (possibly with White House coordination; the leader of the effort won't say) attacking the integrity of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, refusing to declassify a memo by Democrats that would contradict the GOP claims, and ignoring a plea by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (under a Trump-appointed director) that it has "grave concerns about the material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo's accuracy". Democrats said they'll have the resources to win and noted the party's electoral successes in down-ballot races throughout 2017.

"We are in agreement that we want to protect the DACA, absolutely".

"We have a great opportunity as a Republican Party".

"Her "crumbs" comment is something I think we can use pretty effectively", Stivers said. As a concession, Trump offered a path to citizenship to some 1.8 million undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as minors, through no fault of their own. Trump reinforced the framework during his State of the Union address.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.), said that lawmakers need to develop a "Plan B" in the event Mr. Trump's proposal fails. More ominous are their increasingly brazen attempts to protect Trump by taking down the Russian Federation probe.

Meadows was a bit more clear.

"There are a number of my colleagues that are against a pathway to citizenship", Mr. Rubio told Fox News.

But with the divisions over the other three pillars standing in the way of a deal, the answer to the citizenship question is unlikely to come soon.

Sen. James Lankford, an Oklahoma Republican who has been involved in some immigration negotiations, predicted Republicans would not be unified after they leave West Virginia.
