White House debates itself over amnesty

The DACA program, created by President Obama in 2012, allows undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children to remain in the country and obtain a work permit, provided that they finish high school and maintain a clean criminal record.

Ann Coulter, conservative Republican commentator and author of the book "In Trump We Trust", reached peak Donald Trump frustration on Thursday morning when she tweeted, "At this point, who doesn't want Trump impeached?" and said she'd prefer President Mike Pence if the promised border wall falls through. Mr. Trump denied that in a series of tweets Thursday morning.

The Department of Homeland Security is no longer accepting new applications for DACA submitted after September 5.

"Hours after President Trump lavished praise on so-called Dreamers, a federal judge questioned the Department of Homeland Security in Brooklyn Thursday about the deadline looming for the thousands of immigrants brought into the United States illegally when they were children to renew their status - or be deported".

"I'm actually disappointed in that deal by the president", Simmons said. Her unfiltered, brash, populist conservatism seemed to align with the goals of the Trump campaign and its figureheads from day one. Many have never seen or travelled to the country their parents are from, but Trump expects them to fit in just fine.

His fourth and final tweet on the topic Thursday morning appeared to indicate that Trump may not seek deportation of some of the undocumented young people.

The House's foremost immigration hard-liner, GOP Rep. Steve King of Iowa, addressed Trump over Twitter, writing that if the reports were true, "Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond fix". Trump said there was no deal, despite a statement from Pelosi and Schumer announcing a broad agreement. This rest of the candidates were complete idiots, so of course, you had to 100 percent support Trump.

CA Legislature Set to Vote on 'Sanctuary State' Proposal
The California Values Act would not necessarily make California the country's first "sanctuary state". Lawmakers reached a deal on the proposal after resistance from law enforcement officials and Gov.

It was recently repealed, but California Democrat Nancy Pelosi says she struck a deal with the President. "The president is 100 committed to the wall", Mrs. Sanders said on Fox News.

Democrats said it includes plans to enhance boarder security.

Meanwhile, talk of a deal could put hardliners like Barletta in the hard position of deciding whether to support a deal struck by a president who won his state, even if it incurs the wrath of conservatives opposed to any compromise over young illegal immigrants.

House Republicans would normally rebel over such an approach, which many view as amnesty for lawbreakers.

"President Trump's decision to end DACA is a manufactured crisis in response to an artificial deadline from anti-immigrant leaders", said Lorella Praeli, the American Civil Liberties Union's director of immigration policy and campaigns. And now, after landing in Florida, Trump says an understanding for a wall will be reached and that funding will come later and will not be "obstructed".

"As long as we put conservative values and conservative ideas and roll back the last eight years of the Obama Administration, them I'm all on board", Mullin added.
