Trump opens curtain on negotiations over spending bill, immigration

Demonstrators urging the Democratic Party to protect the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Act rally outside the office of California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein in Los Angeles last week

In September, Trump said he was scrapping the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, but then delayed enforcement to give Congress six months - until March - to craft a lasting solution.

Republicans, Ryan added, want to make sure that the package, however, is "balanced", so that the US doesn't have a DACA program five to 10 years from now.

Congress has less than two weeks - until January 19 - to potentially pass a budget deal to lift spending caps and a governmentwide funding package that funds the rest of the fiscal year.

President Donald J. Trump just concluded a successful bipartisan and bicameral meeting on immigration reform.

"You cannot say anymore that the United States is going to pay for the wall", Trump told Peña Nieto, adding that he was "fine" with Mexico not paying for the wall, so long as he could tell the press that the two world leaders were "working it out".

Trump at one point suggested bringing back "earmarks", or money for pet projects requested by lawmakers, as a way to bring the two parties together and avoid divisions.

The discussions on immigration were taking place in the aftermath of the president's public blow-up with former campaign and White House adviser Steve Bannon, one of the architects of Trump's calls for a border wall along the U.S. Southern border.

"I would like it", Trump said, though it wasn't clear what he understood a clean bill to entail.

"I think my positions are going to be what the people in this room come up with", Trump said during a Cabinet Room meeting with a bipartisan group of 20 lawmakers, adding, "I am very much reliant upon the people in this room". "If they come to me with things that I'm not in love with, I'm going to do it", Trump asserted.

A compromise - with protection for the young immigrants, often called Dreamers by their advocates, and some enhanced border security, without construction of the wall - could eventually be reached. "Because I respect them".

Several Republicans pushed back at different points during the negotiations, including Rep. Kevin McCarthy, who said that no deal on Dreamers could be reached without attaching border security measures to it. Trump repeated a false claim that countries "give you people that they don't want, and then we take them out of the lottery" - countries don't submit lottery entrants, people apply on their own. That's an argument GOP lawmakers who want a deal are making to Trump to convince him he has maximum leverage now that will wane.

At a White House meeting of Republican and Democratic lawmakers, Trump said after the first phase was complete he wanted to move quickly to even more contentious issues including a possible pathway to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants that is opposed by many Republicans.

Democrats and Republicans are set to resume negotiations on Wednesday.

Trump ended the program previous year, citing legal challenges by states, but gave Congress until March 5 to negotiate a deal that would allow "Dreamers" to stay legally.

She said negotiations will center on what immigration compromises Trump might be willing to make with Democrats because "Republicans will by and large vote for anything the president supports".

But despite that initial promise seen in Kelly, lawmakers have since felt a series of disheartening decisions has changed that calculus - including the decision to end DACA while he was chief of staff and a series of decisions to end Temporary Protected Status by the administration since - including reporting that he was involved in calling acting Secretary Elaine Duke and pressuring her on the Honduras TPS decision, which Duke later denied.
