Rep. Steve King On DACA And Immigration

Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), in which the Democratic leaders claimed a deal was made, or almost made, on DACA and border security.

"This was a straight-up promise all the way through his campaign".

President Donald Trump recently chose to phase out DACA and asked Congress to act in the next six months to pass a law addressing the needs of immigrants like Dreamers.

King said he supports all of Trump's agenda, but not the call to legalize DACA, calling it an "amnesty piece that's being dangled out in front of America right now". While his life would not be in danger if deported, others who were born in Honduras, Venezuela or other countries with the highest murder rates in the world could "face death", he told the Agence France-Presse news service.

For Simmons and others, reports that Trump had cut some sort of deal on immigration - one that apparently did not include funding for a border wall - over a cozy White House dinner with House minority leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer raised a red flag.

Trump early Thursday denied that he'd made a deal with the Democrats on DACA. He then went as far as to say that there will be a floor vote on DACA legislation.

SIMON: Do you have a concern that President Trump might use his position on DACA, as it's evolving, as what amounts to a bargaining chip to get what he's wanted all along, which is to at least begin to build a wall.

Pushed on how that wasn't amnesty in the eyes of Trump's supporters, Walters demurred and said she would not "sit here and litigate" what constituted amnesty.

In the video Justin appears to be ready to set a MAGA visor on fire, but instead goes on to thank the president for a number of things, including "[for] not changing who you are, even for those who hate on you."

. No, it was a wall and it was a wall all the way. The policy was established by the Obama administration in June 2012 to allow young people brought to the country by their parents illegally to receive a renewable two-year permit to work, study, and obtain a driver's license.

When we introduced the Dream Act, Senator Graham said, 'the moment of reckoning is coming'. Yet Trump pardoned Arpaio, a convicted criminal, but did not pardon 800,000 law-abiding youths who were trying to live the American dream.

"I think that people are overreacting by burning their hats", Holevinski told BuzzFeed News.

DACA allows immigrant students to register with the government for a temporary legal status. "As the next door neighbour to the USA and a place that has a reputation of being welcome and tolerant, I thought that some affected by the DACA decision might look to Canada for help".

Congressional Republicans, already bewildered at the president's recent deal with the Democratic leadership on raising the federal debt ceiling, have to be wondering if Mr. Trump has any party loyalty, or is really the astute dealmaker he claims to be.

He said that he wrote a letter to President Barack Obama with Senator Dick Lugar of IN seven years ago.

"Here's the irony. Ronald Reagan led with amnesty, and in 2006, [George W.] Bush 43 led with amnesty".

"Just like I have (had) for the past five years, anxiety", said Seven Flores, who has been shielded from deportation since 2013 under DACA. That doesn't come from me. We're working on a plan for DACA.
