Trump, Democrats Have Different Ideas On How Their DACA Meeting Went

Congress Ryan

GOP leaders made a huge wager — and they're losing

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) will convene an ad hoc working group of congressional Republicans to formulate a path forward for DACA recipients whose work permits will begin expiring in less than six months, Politico reported Thursday.

The "Better Way" campaign manifesto Ryan released previous year stated that the GOP "envisions tax reform that is revenue neutral".

The stakes in the tax battle have grown for the Republicans since their effort to repeal much of President Barack Obama's law crashed this summer.

The outline will represent a consensus between the two tax-writing committees in Congress, the House Ways and Means Committee and the Senate Finance Committee, and the Trump administration, Ryan said.

Despite talks with Democrats on tax legislation, opposition by virtually all of them seems likely, meaning GOP lawmakers will have to be united.

President Donald Trump and Democratic congressional leaders recently discussed protecting undocumented immigrants under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

A ton of criticism came from the right for the president because this was a key campaign promise - he talked about how tall the wall would be, how handsome it would be, and now he's backing away from it and also enshrining something that President Barack Obama did into law if this comes to fruition.

The announcement of the working group comes shortly after Democrats declared they struck an agreement with the president to codify safeguards for "DREAMers" while crafting a border security package that doesn't include funding for a border wall.

The Wisconsin Republicans says an AP Newsmakers interview that he wanted the White House to provide time for a legislative fix because he didn't want the program "to be rescinded on Day One and create chaos".

Ryan said that removing the immigrants covered by the program is "not in our nation's interest".

The Obama-era program extended temporary work permits and deportation protection to almost 800,000 younger immigrants brought to this country illegally as minors.

After months of disarray and confusion at the White House, Ryan said its operations have been getting better lately.

"Through bipartisan outreach efforts like this, President Trump is demonstrating his commitment to fulfilling his promises, and that includes producing tangible results on important issues like tax reform", the White House said in a statement, labeling the meeting "highly productive".

"I don't think the president actually understands what he's saying half the time", Gallego said. He replaced the previous chief of staff, Reince Priebus, a Ryan friend.
