Within hours, the president seemed to disavow that deal.
TARA: They used to go to donor events together. Hagstrom, 60, a car-warranty manager, asked on his way to a Bible-study dinner at an upscale shopping mall. "They don't respect borders in a public address", Ingraham said. "There's no life for them there".
Ocean and other students from Monday's protest denied they were seeking immediate overall immigration reform.
But in her weekly press conference on Wednesday, Pelosi said that despite the constant coordination between the various caucuses on Capitol Hill with immigration advocacy groups, the path forward will be with the bipartisan legislation called the DREAM Act. During that confab, the president appeared to agree to a framework of a deal that would include permanent protection for 700,000 DACA recipients - whose statuses his administration had just left up in the air - in exchange for more robust border security, though notably not a border wall. She said Democrats shouldn't fritter that away by fighting for broader reforms that are likely unattainable. At one point, she said, "Just stop it". "I think Nancy Pelosi realized that, and she was caught".
On Monday, dozens of protesters disrupted an event in Pelosi's hometown of San Francisco, showing their displeasure over her recent meetings with President Donald Trump over ways to continue the program that protects young immigrants from deportation.
The Department of Justice announced earlier this month that the DACA program would be stopped in its track in six months if Congress does not work out a policy to save it. Trump said in a written statement that he would "resolve the DACA issue with a heart and compassion - but through a lawful democratic process". "Democrats are not the resistance to Trump". So if anyone is going to talk him off a ledge, it does seem like it would be Schumer. "There's a lot of swamp on both sides of the fence".
Trump and Pelosi share one trait - neither is known for talking with precision. We remember all too well, how for eight years the Democrats laid siege to our communities, raiding and deporting almost 3 million people, our family members and loved ones. We are 11 million, we're not 800,000.
"Anyone who has entered the United States illegally is subject to deportation", Trump flatly stated.
"I mean, this is the problem with not enforcing the rule of law". "But we must protect the parents as much as we protect the children". "Not only that, one of his leaders in his cabinet said the next day that's what the agreement was". "Some people are saying that if you pass that then what about comprehensive immigration reform, what about other undocumenteds (sic)?"
"I'm here to support", Ramirez said. Obama's unilateral executive action had no legitimate continuing legal authority, but Tribe's lawsuit claims that it is somehow unconstitutional for Trump to discontinue the program.
On careful inspection, it's clear the president has indeed compromised in the DREAMer direction.
"It broke our hearts when the president made his decision", said Angela Velazquez. With patience, however, Pelosi believes immigration can be expanded successfully. As the Chronicle reported, in speaking to reporters, she commented that she understands where the activists are coming from, and that she "understands their fear".
"They don't know Mexico", she said as she headed into a Mesa grocery store.
