Trump refers to immigrant nations as 's***hole countries' in Oval meeting

Trump's comments came as two senators presented details of a bipartisan compromise that would extend protections against deportation for hundreds of thousands of young immigrants - and also strengthen border protections, as Trump has insisted.

Chain migration. The bill would prevent people from sponsoring visas for extended family members.

"There has not been a deal reached yet, however we still think we can get there", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said. "If you don't have the wall, you can't have security".

But the bipartisan "Group of Six", which included numerous same players that negotiated the hard right's much maligned 2013 immigration bill - was being squeezed even before Thursday. He was a delegate for Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention in 2016.

SCOTT DETROW, BYLINE: The three Democrats and three Republicans who have been hashing out a DACA agreement say they've got a compromise that deals with border security, with the people now protected by DACA and changes to the legal immigration process that President Trump has called for.

In September, Trump announced that he would end DACA, which President Barack Obama created by executive order in 2012.

U.S. Democratic Senator Dick Durbin, who was at a White House meeting on immigration on Thursday where Trump reportedly made the remarks, confirmed to reporters on Friday that Trump used "vile, vulgar" language, including "shithole".

Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a frequent Trump critic, said on Thursday the comments "smack of blatant racism, the most odious and insidious racism masquerading poorly as immigration policy". He didn't say exactly what he believes that should entail. House Speaker Paul Ryan has far more hardline immigration hawks in his conference.

Conservative media hosts were livid over Trump's meeting with lawmakers Tuesday, saying he'd sold out them out on a top priority.

Democrats had pressed to have a deal included in a must-pass funding bill next week, as a government spending plan runs out on January 19.

DACA shields almost 800,000 young immigrants from deportation by allowing them to work and study legally in the United States.

We write to urge Congress to act immediately and pass a permanent bipartisan legislative solution to enable Dreamers who are now living, working, and contributing to our communities to continue doing so. If the diversity visa lottery is eliminated but those visas are open to other individuals, such as holders of temporary protected status, that could be a solution, Menendez said. The White House did not deny his remark but issued a statement saying Trump supports immigration policies that welcome "those who can contribute to our society".

"I'm not sure what the next step will be", Durbin told reporters. "The question is if there's the right spirit". Republican Colorado Rep. Mike Coffman, who comes from a district with a heavy immigrant population, said the key in this deal is to pass DACA, some border security measures and maybe a few other things - but leave interior enforcement for the bigger deal down the road. We can make this land sparkle even more by choosing those we most need, including some unskilled.

"The ruling last night in no way diminishes the urgency of solving the DACA issue", Schumer said on the Senate floor. Nevertheless, we oppose illegal immigration and should do whatever we can to improve security (both at the border and for visa overstays). Trying to jam those elements in now, they say, greatly distorts the trade they're getting for DACA - which would affect only roughly 1 million undocumented immigrants of the estimated 11 million in the country.

But it's early in the process to assume knowledge of what Trump would agree to. Sen. "The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel".

Our president also seems to me right in wanting to change the chief criterion for legal entry. "Flake's bipartisan group - the only bipartisan group that has been negotiating a DACA fix - has struck a deal".
