Trump scored good reviews, hence the remark about the White House "studio" on Wednesday.
Durbin and Graham were told on Thursday that Trump would not agree to the deal. 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?"
That hope was shot down later that afternoon, following the White House meeting.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders countered Flake's assessment of the negotiations. He is right if E-Verify extensions are included because any legalizing provision is likely to encourage more illegal immigrants to come our way.
It also reportedly would cut the visa lottery program by half and prioritise certain countries in the system, instead of scrapping it altogether as several Republicans have suggested as part of an agreement.
Consideration of how to handle the future of the parents of Dreamers was was described as the most hard part of the negotiations. Once they retake the Congress and the presidency, and if Trump betrays his base on immigration that will definitely happen.
Sens. Jeff Flake R-Ariz. and Dick Durbin D-Ill. Michael Bennet (D-CO), and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, he offered to sign a "clean" DACA extension while Congress worked out other aspects of immigration reform in separate legislation.
Democrats are demanding protections for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients in exchange for border security funding that could include money for Trump's promised border wall.
Democrats' insistence on passing an immigration bill by the funding deadline has raised concerns about the possibility of a government shutdown.
For years, Congress has weighed clamping down on what conservatives call "chain migration", which opens the door for immediate relatives of legal immigrants to come the United States - often following a protracted wait time. Trump said, according to people briefed on the meeting who spoke with The Washington Post.
"We are at a deal", Sen.
"I can not speak to the specifics of Sen". Cotton has a proposal that gets a Democrat.
"The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards".
"It's got to include a wall", said President Trump. It would also end all family-sponsored immigration except for the spouses and minor children of American citizens, and do away with the diversity visa lottery program. Some Democrats are threatening to withhold needed votes for the budget measure unless there's an immigration accord.
Leaders of both parties met Wednesday in House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy's office to negotiate what Republicans called a timeline toward a deal. The proposal would have provided $1.6 billion for border security.
