SWEET: Immigration talks continue after Trump's head-spinning meeting

A bipartisan group of USA senators has reached a deal on protecting young immigrant "Dreamers" from deportation as part of a broader immigration plan, a spokesman for Republican Senator Jeff Flake said on Thursday.

An global passenger (L) arrives at Dulles worldwide Airport as a man (R) waits for loved ones to arrive in Dulles, Virginia, U.S. September 24, 2017. If Democrats really care about DACA, they will also focus on the deal before us.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., lauded the president's approach.

U.S. Democratic Senator Dick Durbin, who was at a White House meeting on immigration on Thursday where Trump reportedly made the remarks, confirmed to reporters on Friday that Trump used "vile, vulgar" language, including "shithole".

Things were getting heated on Capitol Hill on immigration even before President Donald Trump asked lawmakers in a closed-door meeting Thursday why the USA was bringing in immigrants from "shithole" countries into the US. "On this, we agree with the White House, who says the ruling doesn't do anything to reduce Congress' obligation to address this problem now".

Conservative news outlets such as Breitbart immediately denounced the idea as another "amnesty" like the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, which President Ronald Reagan signed, legalizing the status of 3.2 million undocumented immigrants. It is possible Trump would jettison his requirements about "chain migration" and the diversity visa lottery, things that interest serious immigration restrictionists more, if he could boast of progress toward building the "big, handsome wall".

Warriors' Stephen Curry expected to return vs
Jonas Valanciunas's dunk pulled the Raptors to within 94-83 with 3:16 remaining but Golden State ended the quarter on an 11-2 run. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 36.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.8 rebounds per game.

"I'm not talking amnesty at all", Trump was quoted on Thursday by the Wall Street Journal.

Congress ought to take Trump up on his offer: Send him a DACA fix right away and get back to work on comprehensive immigration reform. He insisted that his long-promised border wall must receive equal priority and is willing to risk shutting down the government if funding for it isn't included by the time government spending authority expires on January 19.

A thicket of controversial provisions has been under discussion, according to lawmakers, congressional aides and immigration experts outside of government. "Now the courts have told the government they have to play by the rules", Rosenbaum said. That would allow beneficiaries of the law to receive three-year renewable legal status. But unlike their children, the parents would never be placed on a pathway to citizenship. Recently, however, he has positioned himself as cheerleader-in-chief for Dreamers, as in this September 14 tweet: "Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military?" Under the program, young adults, often referred to as Dreamers, have been permitted to live and work legally in the U.S. The program, which aims to provide visas to people from countries with low rates of immigration to United States, now distributes up to 50,000 visas a year.

If a few billion dollars annually is the trade-off that provides certainty - a pathway to citizenship or permanent legal status - for almost 700,000 young immigrants brought to this country as children by their parents, it's worth it.

"Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people". His price, and that of many Republicans, is up to $33 billion in border-security measures, including Trump's "beautiful" wall.
