"We have to have the wall for security purposes".

Trump has inaccurately claimed that Barack Obama, the nation's first black president, wasn't born in the United States.

The U.S. Catholic bishops "are encouraged by the consensus" that emerged from a White House meeting that a legislative solution for DACA is "urgently needed", said the chairman of the bishops' Committee on Migration. Durbin is blunt. He says he doesn't love making all the tradeoffs Republicans are demanding. Alsup's ruling puts a temporary stop to that, and we're glad to see the federal courts taking a stand. It's not what I want. Both Cornyn and Durbin are part of a separate negotiating group comprised of the second-ranking senator and congressman on both sides of the aisle.

The bishops also "are pleased to see the mutual understanding that ensuring protection for these young people should be the first step in the systematic reform of our outdated immigration laws", said Bishop Joe Vasquez of Austin, Texas, referring to those now protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Some other lawmakers who have been engaged in the negotiations were also optimistic; others said no deal had yet been reached.

Without the President's buy-in, the work of the group can't reach the Senate floor, Republican leadership said.

Would the Democrats shut down the government over DACA?

Becerra, flanked by members of the legal team that has argued the case, said it remained up to Congress and the president to find a permanent solution, however.

Paul Ryan: Trump comments 'unfortunate,' 'unhelpful'
"My family, like a whole lot of people came from Ireland on what they called "coffin ships" and worked the railroads", Ryan said. To no surprise, the president started tweeting this morning, denying that he used those words.

But until now, Trump's support has been contingent on Congress appropriating money to build a wall on the U.S. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia, Michael McCaul of Texas, Raúl Labrador of Idaho, and Martha McSally of Arizona - in a Tuesday op-ed in the Wall Street Journal. These are people who came here, a lot of them illegally, but were given a protective status because of events in their country like earthquakes.

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn said the gang of six's work is not enough to get a vote, and said that any path forward will have to come from talks among a broader group of lawmakers including Republican leadership.

Almost 80% of Americans believe "Dreamers", or undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children, should be permitted to stay in the USA and apply for citizenship, according to the Quinnipiac poll.

The president also addressed the issue of a border wall with Mexico, saying the USA needs one "in certain areas obviously that aren't protected by nature" and where existing fences are in bad shape and need to be fixed or rebuilt.

Trump, during a White House meeting with lawmakers about immigration on Tuesday, said he'd sign legislation on DACA, but Short said there are several things the Trump administration wants in return.

"It's probably one of the few issues where there can be space between president and conservative members", said Meadows.

But Trump also added, "There are large areas where you don't need a wall". It was not clear whether the senators' deal would somehow target parents or siblings seeking entry.
