Trump 'has been very clear' on what he wants to end shutdown

She declined to provide details about what would be included in the framework, including whether it would provide a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who came to the USA as children, known as Dreamers, signaling only that it will represent "a compromise that members of both parties can support".

The reporter had asked if Trump will "go before the nation and tell Americans how he feels about this issue and try to do what he can with the bully pulpit" to stop school shootings.

With the US now on day three of a federal shutdown, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders disputed any notion that President Donald Trump is not being clear about what he wants in any deal to reopen the government.

Senate Democrats angered their liberal, activist political base Monday by yielding on Republican Party demands to reopen the government without an immigration deal. Trump also wants to limit the family members that immigrants are able to sponsor to join them in the US and either replace or transform a visa lottery aimed at increasing diversity.

"I don't think that helps us very much", Sanders said of legislation crafted with only one chamber in mind. But the wall has become a central pillar in the immigration debate, on which the bipartisan Senate coalition is moving at a rapid pace ahead of the president's March 5 deadline to resolve the DACA issue.

They came just hours after the White House announced it will release a "legislative framework" for immigration reform on Monday that it said is acceptable to both Democrats and Republicans.

Speaking to Marr, he warned that the United Kingdom could not "cherry-pick" the elements it wanted. I do respect this vote, I do regret this vote, and I would love to welcome you again.

It is unclear whether several of Trump's priorities in October are part of the current negotiations, including the introduction of mandatory e-verify, which proponents say is critical to stopping the continual flow of illegal immigrants.

Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican pointman on the immigration negotiations, hailed Trump's comments as a major breakthrough.

Although Sanders is the third woman to hold the title of White House press secretary, she is the first who is also a mom. The goal is to produce consensus legislation that would be the starting point for Senate debate on immigration, which is expected to begin February 8, said Sens. As reported by CBS News on January 24, Sarah Huckabee Sanders spoke out about these issues at the White House.

"We're going to have a fair and open process that will give everybody an opportunity to participate", Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, said.

Miller and Kelly, along with Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, participated in Trump's meeting Monday with Senate immigration hard-liners and the pair of top aides were also present in the meeting with Democrats.
