Goodlatte, who serves as the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, unveiled an immigration bill Wednesday afternoon that would also deal with DACA or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the name of the policy that gave Dreamers legal status. At the time, the White House gave some beneficiaries whose DACA statuses expire before the March date one final chance to renew their statuses. The program will be operated under the same terms as before the Trump administration rescinded the program on September 5, the agency said.

President said Friday that he was not pleased with the bipartisan DACA agreement calling it "a big step backwards".

And this was a coordinated effort by Republicans who saw the proposal as a complete non-starter. But even before the "shithole" remark, officials were not looking at a deal on immigration as tied to the January 19 government funding deadline, despite Democrats using the threat of a possible government shutdown as leverage to get a deal passed.

House and Senate lawmakers are all gone for the long weekend. Our families have teachers, nurses, lawyers, college counselors, medical students, business owners and hundreds of parents and children who have helped to make our communities great.

It's still an open question, but Democrats do see a dynamic shift here. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. - say they are continuing to round up supporters in hopes of building momentum for their plan.

She also told reporters that she believed a deal would get done.

Of note: The Republicans who are players in the talks - including those in the room for the comment - were silent last night, beyond a statement attacking the group of six proposal as "not serious".

The reported deal from the bipartisan group was a solid start, with genuine compromise from both sides. The GOP-led House of Representatives pushed for stripping funding for Obamacare. That's precisely what happened when that agreement was presented. Sanaa Abrar manages policy and advocacy for United We Dream, one of the main outside groups advocating for a permanent DACA fix. "Our guys would burn the place down". A Republican senator had to jump in and explain to Trump what he was agreeing to.

But Trump and his advisers notably did not dispute the most controversial of his remarks: using "sh*thole" to describe African nations and saying he would prefer immigrants from countries like Norway instead.

In a statement Friday, conservative Republican Senators Tom Cotton of Arkansas and David Perdue of Georgia had a different take on the previous day's meeting. The behind the scenes on this is fascinating.

The problem? They've been together for all of about five days.

Although House Speaker Paul Ryan did not go as far as Democrats in criticizing the president, even he acknowledged that the remark from the leader of his party was "unfortunate" and "unhelpful".

Trump took particular issue with the idea that people who'd fled to the USA after disasters in places such as El Salvador, Guatemala and Haiti would be allowed to stay as part of the deal, according to the people, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly describe the discussion.
