Republicans can't avoid Trump's wall promises in DACA talks

The objective of the meeting was to hammer out a temporary spending bill likely to include an extension of President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival program, or DACA, for some immigrants brought into the United States as minors.

Hoyer said Trump himself mentioned fences and technology.

Now Trump has called for an initial $18 billion in USA taxpayer funding for the wall, a proposal Democrats uniformly are opposed to, along with some Republican lawmakers.

Ten Democratic Senate seats are up in states Trump won in 2016. Sen. How can the GOP give Trump a win on the wall without alienating Democrats from a bipartisan solution on DACA?

Following the meeting, Durbin said he was pleased by the "sense of urgency" by the participants and that they "narrowed down the list of what they are going to discuss in the first phase of immigration, the DACA phase, to border security, chain migration and the diversity visa". "Because I respect them".

While the government-contracted wall prototypes have risen near the border in San Diego, the Trump administration has so far not made significant progress on the much larger - and costlier - undertaking of funding and constructing a border wall. And Republicans control both the Senate and House.

"It got confusing at times, in fact he said later, 'I just want a clean DACA and we'll do a comprehensive later, ' and some of us said, 'Whoa, what do you mean by that?' And he came back to those four items", the Oklahoma Republican told reporters afterward. "President Donald Trump is going to have to bless a deal, [and] that is a formidable challenge".

"We need a wall", Trump said, during the long exchange with lawmakers. Democrats say they see room to negotiate on a deal that's primarily border security infrastructure, combined with a pathway to legal status for DACA recipients.

Trump wants a deal that extends DACA but also boosts border security and limits the federal chain migration and visa lottery systems, which he blames for admitting Sayfullo Saipov, the suspect in the West Side Highway truck killings. Ruark's group wants DACA negotiations to focus on a proposal to hold employers accountable for hiring illegal immigrants - above immigration enforcement. Trump later clarified that there is no agreement without the wall.

Steny Hoyer, the No. 2 Democrat in the House of Representatives, said a DACA bill could win support for passage even though there are differences between the parties over constitutes necessary border security. Trump, he said, promised repeatedly on the campaign trail that Mexico would pay for the wall.

"If you only build a wall, only a 'wall, ' without using technology, individuals, drones, observations, etc., you're not going to secure the border", Sen.

Mexican officials have said they do not intend to pay for a wall.
