SWEET: Immigration talks continue after Trump's head-spinning meeting

"I think on the immigration issue, when you're making racist comments like that it makes it more hard to come to an agreement on a deal that he can support", the aide said, adding it also raises questions about future negotiations and whether Trump will "play a constructive role".

In a move rare for any president, Trump let the camera-wielding press pool stay for 55 minutes, which Trump transformed into a reality show episode - one with enormous real consequences for DREAMers in danger of being deported.

Lucero's been in the US since he was 2.

The result was a surreal scene on Friday.

After the ceremony at the White House, reporters shouted questions at Mr. Trump, which included, "Mr. President, are you a racist?" Mr. Trump ignored the queries.

Some believe the president's most recent comments may have made a deal almost impossible.

"Some of them are losing their jobs, they're losing their driving privileges because their driver's licenses expire the same time as their work permits expire and they have difficulties with paying bills and rent", she said.

Despite not having Trump's sign-off, the bipartisan group negotiating the agreement is pushing forward.

But he also wrote "this was not the language used", an apparent denial, although it was unclear to what language he was referring.

"The most disheartening thing to me is my belief that that was the first time words that hateful had been spoken in the Oval Office of the White House", Durbin said.

The group used the "bird-dog" approach-waiting for Congress members to come out of voting.

Bishop Vasquez said the bishops "stand ready to work" with Trump and Congress "in the coming days to help fashion a just solution that meets their needs, ensures our nation's safety and security, and sets the stage for the larger debate on immigration reform that is so urgently and desperately needed".

As part of any agreement about DACA, Trump has insisted that there be funding for a wall on the Southern border with Mexico, which many Democrats have opposed.

The compromise reached by Mr. Durbin and others incorporates a modified version of the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, the measure that gave undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children their "Dreamer" label.

No doubt better border security and a more logical guest worker visa program are essentials, but all these issues can be dealt with after Congress passes a budget, which is the real priority now.

Democrats will have to make some concessions on increased border security, despite the insistence of some leaders that DACA be the only immigration topic in the funding bill.

But the main impetus for the deal is the fate of the Dreamers.

As news of Trump's comments spread, even jaded congressional insiders expressed shock. From that point onward, roughly 1,000 people a day are expected to lose their protections.
