White House issues list of hard-line immigration demands

White House lays out DACA deal asks

He called for establishing a new point-based system for awarding the green cards (lawful permanent residents) based on factors that allow individuals to successfully assimilate and support themselves financially; eliminate the diversity visa lottery and limit the number of refugees to prevent the abuse of the US Refugee Admissions Programme. The president previously agreed to exclude negotiations over the status of the dreamers with his border wall project.

That goes against the previous negotiations with Congress, in which Trump said, among other things, that he wouldn't make the construction of a border wall a part of any DACA deal.

But that request got more complicated on Sunday when the president submitted a list of demands to Congress that he wants fulfilled as part of a deal to keep the 800,000 Dreamers in the country.

The White House proposals would curb the ability of family members to join their relatives from overseas, upending decades of immigration policy, and put strict new limits on asylum claims.

BENNETT: The priorities include curbing funding for so-called sanctuary cities, cracking down on unaccompanied minors from Central America, hiring thousands more immigration enforcement officers and attorneys, limiting family-based legal immigration to spouses and children, not extended family members and, notably, funding and completing the Southern border wall.

About 690,000 recipients are now enrolled in the program, and their work permits are due to expire in March 2018.

He has eight games with at least two sacks since entering the National Football League in 2014, tied for third-most in that span. Lynch has gained 30 yards on 15 carries in the past two games while the Raiders have managed just 56 yards total on the ground.

The White House wants the wish list to guide immigration reform in Congress and accompany a bill to replace DACA, an Obama-era program that protected almost 800,000 "Dreamers" from deportation and also allowed them to secure work permits.

Congressional Hispanic Caucus chairwoman Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-New Mexico) also slammed Trump's proposal and said his "draconian and anti-immigrant principles jeopardize the bi-partisan, bi-cameral progress that has been made to pass a legislative solution that will protect almost 800,000 Dreamers", according to Fox News. In the House, Grisham is leading an effort to force a vote on the Dream Act, which would allow immigrants brought to the U.S.as children to eventually become citizens. They had been given a reprieve from deportation and the ability to work legally in the country under President Barack Obama. The statement continues, quote, "if the president was serious about protecting the DREAMers, his staff has not made a good-faith effort to do so".

"This list goes so far beyond what is reasonable".

In order to qualify for Daca, applicants under the age of 30 submitted personal information to the Department of Homeland Security.

Democrats, have, however, refused to roll the dice with the President and Republicans in general by rejecting any attachments to the bill.

Schumer and Pelosi's frustrated response was about right, but when Rep. Gutierrez added his voice, he took the criticism to a maddening, fever pitch level.
