White House offers hard-line immigration policies as trade for legalizing 'Dreamers'

Trump demands Congress fund border wall as price for keeping Dreamers

White House offers hard-line immigration policies as trade for legalizing 'Dreamers'

The immigration demands that the administration of President Donald Trump sent to Congress on Sunday is likely to complicate any deal with Democrats regarding the protection for roughly 700,000 young people now facing possible deportation from the us, reports said.

Instead, the White House list includes longstanding demands of the Republican Party's immigration hardliners, including expediting removals of unaccompanied children arriving at the border; tightening standards for people allowed to seek asylum in the USA; barring immigrants who have been convicted of a range of crimes, including drunk driving; and barring federal grants to so-called "sanctuary cities" that do not turn over illegal immigrants to federal authorities.

In a statement, Democratic leaders Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-Cali.) and Senator Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), rebuked the list as "anathema to the Dreamers, to the immigrant community and to the vast majority of Americans".

A spokeswoman for the White House, Kelly Love, said: "The president has made clear he wants Congress to act and pass responsible immigration reform in conjunction with any legislation related to DACA, which will include legal authorities to close border security loopholes, restoring interior enforcement, and reforming the legal immigration system".

A liberal Hispanic congressman clobbered Donald Trump on Sunday over his latest immigration proposals, calling them an 'extension of the white supremacist agenda'. "In fact, it's endangering them", Pelosi said.

Female news anchor accuses Harvey Weinstein of masturbating in front of her
As Weinstein left for an indefinite absence from work, one-third of his company's board members submitted their resignation. His attorney Lisa Bloom also resigned on Saturday, despite initially defending him after he retained her as an advisor.

On Sunday the White House released a blueprint for a much broader immigration overhaul - much of which Trump wants passed as a condition of making DACA permanent. Democrats and some Republicans are not expected to support measures that include massive interior enforcement and cuts to legal immigration.

The documents call for tighter standards for those seeking United States asylum, denial of federal grants to "sanctuary cities" that serve as refuges for illegal immigrants, and a requirement that employers use an electronic verification system known as "E-Verify" to keep illegal immigrants from securing jobs.

The proposals include funding for a southern border wall and are likely to be rebuked by Democrats.

President Donald Trump is telling congressional leaders that his hard-line immigration priorities must be enacted in exchange for extending protection from deportation to hundreds of thousands of young immigrants.

Last month he ended the Obama-era "Dreamer" programme which had protected some 690,000 immigrants. Now President Trump has put forth a series of proposals that will restore the rule of law to our immigration system, prioritize America's safety and security, and end the lawlessness. The president previously agreed to exclude negotiations over the status of the dreamers with his border wall project.
