Government shutdown looms amid immigration debate

Government shutdown looms amid immigration debate

This article contains strong language, which some readers may find offensive.

The main issue on the table - Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.

The immigration debate is taking place against a backdrop of controversy after Pres. Trump reportedly used a vulgar term in referring to Haiti, El Salvador and African nations, during an Oval Office meeting with senators regarding an immigration deal.

With Capitol Hill still seething over U.S. President Donald Trump's reported slur of predominantly black nations, lawmakers sought to salvage a bipartisan immigration deal Tuesday, three days before a possible partial shutdown of the federal government.

"There's no question what he said was racist".

"I don't think the president was well served by staff".

"I will tell my Democratic friends the following: DACA is actually now alive and the Homeland Security Department is now accepting renewal applications, so it's nowhere near dead", Becerra said on "Fox News Sunday". Trump's ruffled ego stands in the way of a DACA deal and could well force the government to shut down on Friday.

A USA judge ruled last Tuesday that DACA should remain in effect until legal challenges brought in multiple courts are resolved.

"We're not going to leave you behind", he said of the DACA beneficiaries. "We can not let this derail us". "We are going to fight Donald Trump every step of the way", U.S. Sen. David Perdue, R-Ga., said Trump, "did not use that word", and that multiple media accounts of the meeting were a "gross misrepresentation".

Ethereum was down more than 20 percent also in the last 24 hours to $1,051.83 before recovering slightly. As of 10:39 GMT, the Bitcoin price stood at $11,971.50, down 13.6% from the same time yesterday.

McAuliffe said he believes Trump wants a deal, but is being advised by White House policy aide and immigration hardliner Stephen Miller to demand restrictions on the immigration system and funding for the border wall.

Congress must pass a funding bill by the end of January 19 or the federal government will enter a partial shutdown.

On Friday, he said pro-DACA plaintiffs in the several lawsuits he is handling can proceed with their legal claims that the administration's order to end the program stemmed from what he called "racial animus towards Mexicans and Latinos", as reflected in Trump's remarks during the 2016 campaign. The lawmakers' negotiated proposal reportedly would also boost US border security measures and reform legal immigration to the U.S.

Pressed to clarify, he repeated: "I would hope we'd have something everybody has agreed to". What was reported was unacceptable.

"Both sides now are destroying the setting in which anything meaningful can happen", said Sen.

In a tweet this morning, President Trump accused democrats of wanting to shutdown the government over amnesty for all.

"It is extremely hard to convince our caucus members to vote for another short-term funding mechanism", House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows told CNN Monday afternoon. "I'm struggling", he said.

She also appeared to rebut Trump's remarks from earlier in the day. She said that the bipartisan proposal rejected by Trump did not address core security issues facing her department and that Trump's administration was not interested in "half measures".
