Trump wants border wall funds and 'dreamer' protections

Hoyer said Trump himself mentioned fences and technology. Instead, the guest list is set to include lawmakers from both parties involved in the immigration debate, such as Republican Senators John Cornyn of Texas and Tom Cotton of Arkansas, and Senator Dick Durbin of IL, a Democrat.

Democrats have been pushing for what Sen.

But immigrants' rights activists concede any eventual DACA agreement will need Trump's support to make it palatable to Republicans.

Speaker Paul Ryan said Tuesday that bipartisan talks are ongoing to address how to craft a legislative solution for so-called "Dreamers" that's tied with some sort of border enforcement provisions, such as funding for a border wall. The source said Trump told them beforehand the press would come in for the top.

The president appeared to acknowledge the potential political pitfalls of pursuing a more permanent deal, telling the lawmakers, "I'll take all the heat you want".

A Republican candidate has dropped out of the race to represent New Mexico in the United States House of Representatives.

He was also a close aide of Ghazi Baba - who is accused to be the mastermind behind the attack on the Indian Parliament in 2001. The Jaish-e-Mohammad has claimed responsibility for the attack. "They were challenged by camp sentries", said a CRPF official.

"I would have more faith in the meeting if they would have people going who really knew the issue from our side", she said, adding that she was not criticizing Durbin. "President Donald Trump is going to have to bless a deal, [and] that is a formidable challenge".

Trump has long said he would not protect Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) participants - of which there are almost 800,000 who were brought to the United States illegal as children - from deportation without ending so-called chain migration, guidelines that allow people in the United States to bring in family members from overseas, and the visa lottery system, a program that distributes around 50,000 visas to countries where there is a low rate of immigration to the US.

"Unfortunately, following that meeting, the White House issued a series of unreasonable demands entirely outside the scope of our ongoing negotiations about DACA and border security", Schumer said on the Senate floor Monday. But, he added, the program is feasible only if it comes with the long-promised border wall and changes to the immigration system, CNN reported.

U.S. Senator Thom Tillis of North Carolina, a Republican, said that the session on Tuesday would not simply consist of lawmakers presenting Trump with a plan for him to reject or accept.

Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt. suggested an "easy way out" of the stalemate. Grassley pointed out the 60 vote threshold in the Senate to get a bill through but said that the threshold increases to a 67 vote threshold if Trump were to veto a bill. Yes, but Mexico will pay. "Unless the wall is 35,000 feet high, it's not going to do much to stop those overstaying these visas", Robert Warren, a fellow at the Center for Migration Studies, told the Times.

Mexican officials have said they do not intend to pay for a wall.
