Trump's "Shithole Countries" Line Makes Bipartisanship Even More Elusive


House majority leader Kevin McCarthy had to bring the president's attention to this point of contention.

Comprehensive immigration reform is a goal long supported by small-business owners across the political spectrum, but its enactment is stifled time and again by our toxic partisan climate.

South Carolina Republican Sen. But their victory - first announced by Sen. We should not conclude, simply because many of those nations have predominantly black, Arab or Hispanic populations, that the color of their skin is the sole or even primary reason for their exclusion.

President Trump held a meeting with lawmakers on Tuesday about passing new legislation to allow the DREAMers to stay in the country, though he has pushed for funding for a wall with Mexico to be part of any immigration policy overhaul.

Trump has specified DACA legislation has to include measures to "secure the border". Tom Cotton of Arkansas and David Perdue of Georgia. This columns first appeared in The Washington Post.

"We do not recall the president saying these comments specifically, but what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest", the statement said.

"The only thing that's saved us from a massive onslaught of people crossing our borders from all over the world, many of whom probably would have been detrimental to us in terms of terrorism, it's been alerting the American people that's given us the leverage", said Rohrabacher.

White House legislative director Marc Short told reporters on Capitol Hill after the meeting that the President wants a "broader" deal on the family piece than just the covered recipients. "American immigration policy can not and should not be guided in any way, shape or form by racism". That meant that negotiating with Democrats and finding a bill that could win their support wasn't an option. "I don't get that", said No. 2 Senate Republican John Cornyn of Texas. "I never thought we would". If that position sticks, it will make it harder for Republican leaders to insist on meaningful increases in enforcement. "We are going to undo any good we can possibly do otherwise", said Rohrabacher. The Associated Press on Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018 obtained details of the agreement between three Republican and three Democratic senators.

"[When she was campaigning], she was in favor of Border Patrols - but she was not in favor of any other form of immigration enforcement", he recalls.

Negotiations over a deal on the DACA program, which has protected undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children from being deported, froze this week after Trump derided African nations as "sh-hole countries" and asked why more immigrants couldn't come from Norway during a closed-door meeting with lawmakers to discuss a bipartisan immigration proposal. "The Dems will threaten "shutdown", but what they are really doing is shutting down our military, at a time we need it most".

Republicans may give hundreds of thousands of immigrants a path to citizenship in upcoming weeks, begging a decades-old question: What are they going to demand in return?

"The president agreed we ought to do it in two phases because we have an emergency", House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said Wednesday of the March 5 deadline for DACA expiration. The resolution, of course, is unlikely to go anywhere in the Republican-controlled House.

What's more, immigrants from outside Europe had high rates of entrepreneurship or were self-employed in 2014: 19.1 percent of immigrants from the Middle East and North Africa were entrepreneurs, while 11.1 percent of Hispanic immigrants and 10.6 percent of Asian immigrants were self employed.

And that's unfortunate. Immigrants represent a net gain for America - they're far more likely to start a business than native-born residents, for instance, and immigration helps sustain economic growth by adding to the population of both producers and consumers. Trump offers plenty to criticize, but for a party leader to make Trump-bashing his principal objective does not help the party meet the responsibilities that voters have given it.
