Trump wants immigration compromise - and border wall

Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas on Tuesday sparred with President Donald Trump over his proposed wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

The immigration negotiations are part of a broader series of talks over issues ranging from funding the federal government through next September to renewing a children's health insurance program and giving US territories and states additional aid for rebuilding following last year's hurricanes and wildfires. The President said border security is among his top priorities.

Last year, Mr Trump said he would allow the expiration of a programme, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), that protected unauthorised immigrants who arrived in the country as children from deportation, secured their rights to education and allowed them to obtain work permits.

Steny Hoyer, the No. 2 Democrat in the House of Representatives, said a DACA bill could win support for passage even though there are differences between the parties over constitutes necessary border security. "Truly, it should be a bill of love and we can do that".

Trump allowed cameras and media to watch the discussion for almost an hour. "Because I respect them", he said.

"It was like being in a 9th grade civics class", the source said.

President Donald J. Trump just concluded a successful bipartisan and bicameral meeting on immigration reform. "A lot of people are coming in that we can't have", Trump added, saying he hoped for a quick solution. "I have a very good relationship with Mexico". The Trump administration dissolved the program in September, granting one final two-year extension for people whose DACA permits expire by March 5, 2018. "We've greatly stiffened and fewer people are trying to come in, but we have tremendous numbers of people on drugs pouring into our country. They've made a decision not to go forward on that until we get closer or get a DACA deal". Democrats have threatened to risk a shutdown if they do not get a DACA extension, although they backed off from a similar threat in December. That's an argument GOP lawmakers who want a deal are making to Trump to convince him he has maximum leverage now that will wane.
