Trump to Schumer: No wall, no DACA deal

Mitch Landrieu, the mayor of New Orleans and the president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, said on Wednesday at a news conference in Washington that he saw the Justice Department's move as an "attack", and that he could not "in good conscience" attend the White House meeting.

"Cryin' Chuck Schumer fully understands, especially after his humiliating defeat, that if there is no Wall, there is no DACA", the president tweeted late Tuesday, using the acronym for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which has allowed the roughly 700,000 immigrants to remain in the country. "It's going to happen, at some point in the future, over a period of 10 to 12 years".

Kelly and Stephen Miller, Trump's senior policy adviser, are immigration hard-liners and are major proponents of the kind of "legislative framework" that earlier in the day Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, said the administration would release on Monday that would be meant to emphasize conservative demands for tougher immigration enforcement and border protection.

"Over a period of 10 to 12 years", Mr Trump said, "somebody does a great job, they work hard - that gives incentive to do a great job".

Those with DACA in Richmond have one more day to get free legal help from attorneys at the Legal Aid Justice Center, and immigration attorneys say the murky DACA deadline is cause enough to reapply while the option is available.

"Tell them not to be concerned". Tell 'em not to worry. We're going to solve the problem. "It's up to the Democrats, but they should not be anxious".

Whether to include a pathway to citizenship - as opposed to stopping at legal residency - for DACA recipients has been a key sticking point between hardline conservatives and moderate Republicans and Democrats, on the other.

Earlier Wednesday, however, Cornyn told reporters that he would support a trade of border security for a DACA-type solution, putting him at potential odds with the White House.

In Wednesday's conversation with reporters, Mr Trump also said he is prepared to be questioned under oath as part of an investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), one of the authors of the bipartisan plan rejected by Trump, said Wednesday night that he was encouraged by Trump's comments. "I truly appreciate President Trump making it clear that he supports a path to citizenship for DACA recipients". Dick Durbin, a Democrat, and Sen.

DACA protections are likely to run out on March 5. "I'm not guaranteeing it because I want to put a little bit of - but I certainly have the right to do it".

The inclusion of a wall and fencing along significant portions of the southern United States border will be something most Democrats will have to stomach if they want a bill that Trump will sign - they just do not want to call it a wall. "So, we cut the best deal that we could". He also said that his plan would include a request for $5 billion for additional security measures along the border.

Trump said the administration is talking about a long-term plan for about 800 miles of wall, but not in areas already guarded by mountains, large bodies of water, and rough terrain. "But we will build it way under".

President Donald Trump says he's open to a pathway to citizenship for hundreds of thousands of young people who were brought to the country as children and are now here illegally.

He repeated his complaints about the diversity lottery - incorrectly suggesting that countries select nefarious characters for the randomly-selected immigrants that still go through vetting - but said it could be replaced or ended.

"It's always been inevitable that we're gonna fund border security", said Sen. It's a bad system. Even if that legislation is possible, it will take years.

He told reporters the deal would be contingent on border wall funding.

"Hey, chief, will you do me a favor?"
