Republicans and Democrats are set to meet with President Donald Trump on Tuesday about Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, the program that allows immigrants who came to the U.S.as children to work and live without fear of deportation.

Hoyer said Trump himself mentioned fences and technology.

"I've never seen the activists push so hard against a deal", said Eddie Vale, a Democratic activist coordinating immigrants' rights efforts on Capitol Hill. The list also includes red state Democrats like Sens.

On March 5, Trump's extension of the DACA program ends.

Reps. Will Hurd (R-Texas) and Peter Aguilar (D-Calif.) unveiled a bipartisan compromise on DACA, Trump's border wall and other laws around immigration ahead of the meeting. "I think he thinks they're interchangeable". But a report from The New York Times on Monday makes it clearer than ever that Trump cares less about border security and more about erecting a giant, meaningless monument to his ego.

Trump said he would "take the heat" if lawmakers wanted to move toward comprehensive immigration reform, saying they were "not that far away" from it. And Republicans control both the Senate and House.

"If we have support from Democrats, DACA is going to be terrific", Mr Trump said, but "we need protection, we need the wall, we need all of these things".

In his remarks at the joint news conference, Macron said "two-facedness" in Turkey-EU ties should come to an end. Fethullah Gulen, a US -based preacher, is accused by Ankara of orchestrating the coup attempt.


At the same time, Sharry said, "We're operating in a context that's very challenging". "Believe it or not, this is the least important thing that we are talking about, but politically this might be the most important talk about", he said, implying that the wall was little more than a well-marketed concept created to appeal to his voter base.

But since the Dems are going to the wall to get DACA approved, Trump upped the stakes when he demanded other immigration enforcement measures be included along with DACA legislation, including funding for the president's border wall - a provision that enrages the Dems base as much as not getting DACA illegals legalized.

"If the White House backtracks on what they said they're going to get from a DACA bill, it's going to have negative political consequences for the president", said Ruark. Trump later clarified that there is no agreement without the wall.

Sen. Lindsey Graham of SC urged President Trump Tuesday to back his efforts to pass comprehensive immigration reform.

An advocacy group that sought to organize a peaceful anti-Donald Trump protest in Albuquerque that later turned violent says its staffers have been the targets of death threats. Yes, but Mexico will pay.

"You can put the most lovely wall out there and it's not going to stop them", Cuellar remarked.
