Trump announced in early September 2016 that he was putting an end to the program, started under former President Barack Obama, that provides amnesty to roughly 690,000 illegal immigrants who came to the U.S.as children. "President Trump is committed to the rule of law, and will work with members of both parties to reach a permanent solution that corrects the unconstitutional actions taken by the last administration".

So far, Republicans and Democrats have not been able to compromise on an immigration reform bill that would also address the problem of illegal aliens and "Dreamers" now in the United States.

Trump urged a return to a merit-based system of immigration.

"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 45th POTUS declared. But it has infuriated Democrats who see the comment as evidence of malicious intent in Trump's policymaking.

The sole Democratic participant in the Oval Office meeting, Senate Minority Whip Richard J. Durbin of IL, told reporters Friday that Trump had used the vulgar word "not just once but repeatedly" during the meeting.

The president also rejected as insufficient an immigration deal drafted by the bipartisan group of lawmakers who attended that meeting.

Moments the president later called for a merit based immigration system. The party is now using the program as a political bargaining chip in Congress's debate over the federal budget, demanding that any deal to keep the government funded must include protections for DACA recipients, also known as DREAMers. "I think that would show real leadership", she said on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday.

Senator David Perdue, a Republican who was at Thursday's Oval Office meeting, insisted on Sunday that Mr Trump did not say "shithole" in referring to African countries. A Republican attendee, Sen. Tom Cotton said in a statement that they "do not recall the President saying those comments specifically".

"I'm telling you, he did not use that word", he said on ABC's "This Week" program. Democrats have been demanding protections for DACA recipients in exchange for border security funding that could include money for Trump's promised border wall.

According to the reports, Judge Alsup, in his order on Tuesday, stated that the Trump administration's move to rescind DACA was done without following the proper legal procedures and that the federal government would have to "maintain the DACA program on a nationwide basis".

Republicans are seeking an increase in military spending; Democrats want a DACA deal and a matching increase in nondefense funding.

Echoing dozens of Democrats, Lewis said he would not vote for any government spending measure until the dreamer issue is settled.
