White House not denying Trump used profanity to describe African countries

White House not denying Trump used profanity to describe African countries

Angie Kim, an immigrants rights advocate and community organizer with MinKwon Center for Community Action, spoke with Radio Sputnik's Loud & Clear about the court's blocking of the phaseout of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and described Wednesday morning's immigration raid on 7-Eleven stores across the nation as "inhumane". If Mr. Trump signs off on DACA, they know his base will desert him. "Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and US would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime.", Trump tweeted.

The agency said it won't be processing applications for those who have never before received DACA protections and no new applications will be accepted.

They also spurred a harsh reaction from the United Nations, with rights office spokesman Rupert Colville describing them as "shocking and shameful".

On Jan. 11, Flake was part of a bipartisan group of senators who pitched Trump a plan that addressed all the concerns he outlined in his tweet. But their victory - first announced by Sen. 'And the message to Attorney General Jeff Sessions: Hands off'.

Words matter. But actions matter even more.

Ready to brief Trump on their negotiations, Durbin and Graham traveled to the White House Thursday thinking they would be meeting privately with the President, a source familiar told CNN. Dianne Feinstein that Congress should handle a DACA fix first, then move on to immigration reform. Tom Cotton of Arkansas, would also be in the room.

The New York Times later reported the same comment, citing unnamed people with direct knowledge of the meeting. Let the Dreamers stay and apply for citizenship like all the others who are applying must do; end chain migration; and finally change the lottery immigration system to one based on merit depending on what skills are most important to our changing economy. "There are mountains and rivers that prevent it in some places; in some places you just don't need it".

Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during a briefing that no deal had been reached yet. "It's the only game in town", Flake said.

Democrats will have to make some concessions on increased border security, despite the insistence of some leaders that DACA be the only immigration topic in the funding bill. That meant that negotiating with Democrats and finding a bill that could win their support wasn't an option.


"I've said from the very beginning that DACA was fully legal", Becerra said.

But the bipartisan "Group of Six", which included numerous same players that negotiated the hard right's much maligned 2013 immigration bill - was being squeezed even before Thursday.

The details of the deal - which was agreed upon by Sens.

In a statement, Republican Sen. He said while he helped head off a bipartisan immigration effort in 2013, "I don't want to promise the result will be the same". The newly created group includes four top congressional leaders and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.

Also, "we need to think more clearly about our labor needs in renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement", Archbishop Gomez said.

The Republicans, however, are finding themselves in a precarious position.

Amid the furore the president criticised the immigration proposal. They don't have a filibuster-proof majority.

Facing a January 19 deadline for averting an election-year government shutdown, negotiators were seeking a formula for reviving protections against deportation that Trump has ended for almost 800,000 immigrants who arrived illegally in the USA as children.

Senate negotiators were trying to get legislation assembled by next week so it could possibly be attached to a spending bill that Congress will have to pass to avoid government shutdowns after Jan 19.
