Republicans See Possible DACA Deal Despite Trump's Twitter Posts

Outrage over 's***hole countries' remark despite Trump denial

Trump Blames Democrats for Stalled Immigration Negotiations Amid Backlash for 'Shithole' Comments

Trump took to Twitter blaming democrats for the stall in talks over a potential immigration deal. The president tweeted, "DACA is probably dead because the democrats don't really want it, they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our military".

The president apparently said: "Why are we having all these people from s--hole countries come here?" referencing people from Haiti, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras and some African countries in temporary protected status program, according to lawmakers who were at the meeting, including Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill. "No more Lotteries! #AMERICA FIRST".

In a statement, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services said that "until further notice", the Obama-era program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, known as DACA, "will be operated on the terms in place before it was rescinded" in September, when President Trump moved to end it.

Congress is yet to figure out what to do with those who were previously eligible under the program, and Trump has said a wall on the U.S. -Mexico border "must be part of any DACA approval". Democrats and some Republicans insist that the bill include language protecting DACA beneficiaries from deportation.

Asked what he thinks about people who think he's racist, Trump said: "I'm not a racist".

Rudolph to miss Senior Bowl

Trump last week rejected an immigration deal drafted by a bipartisan group of senators.

Democrats have generally support previous stopgap measures, but Schumer said Wednesday that an "overwhelming number" of Senate Democrats "don't like this deal and they believe if we kick the can down the road this time, we'll be back where we started".

"I'm telling you he did not use that word, George", Senator Perdue said.

"They don't want security at the border, they don't stop drugs, they want to take money away from our military which we can not do". Such a border-long wall is no longer President Trump's vision, though it's not clear how much difference a shorter amount of fencing would make in polling.

Trump-appointed U.S. Ambassador (and New York Jets owner) Woody Johnson said the new embassy "did not cost the U.S. taxpayer a cent" because it was entirely paid for by the sale of other London properties. Some were brought in the country illegally as children; others entered the USA legally but overstayed visas.

Sen. Joe Manchin, a Democrat from West Virginia, said today he'll vote for a short-term spending bill without a plan to assist the immigrants facing possible deportation. Cotton said Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation" that he "didn't hear" the vulgar word. After Trump's incendiary language and his rejection of the bipartisan deal last week, Democrats may be leaning more toward withholding their votes on a spending compromise.

Perdue and Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., had issued a joint statement Friday saying they "do not recall the President saying those comments specifically".

As the controversy continued on Friday, Mr Trump delivered a scheduled speech to mark Martin Luther King day from the Roosevelt Room in the White House. The reports ignited a new round of accusations of racism against the president. Jeff Flake, a Republican from Arizona who wasn't at the White House meeting but spoke immediately after to Durbin and Graham, said, "I was in a meeting directly afterwards where those who had presented to the president our proposal spoke about the meeting, and they said those words were used, before those words went public".

Perdue of Georgia attended the meeting and called the comments as reported "a gross misrepresentation". "That I can tell you".
