Trump meeting with lawmakers of both parties on Dreamers, Healthcare, Tax Reform and More…

His party Conservatives will have to wait outside for now as Donald Trump settles down to play politics to try work out deals for some wins…

It seems to have registede on him that he needs to negotiate with people from BOTH parties …..

President Trump has invited a bipartisan group of moderate House members to the White House on Wednesday to discuss a host of issues, including tax reform, infrastructure and health care, according to a congressional source familiar with the meeting.

The meeting may also include a discussion of the path forward for “DREAMers,” undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, the source said, asking for anonymity to discuss a meeting that had not been publicly announced. Trump last week canceled former president Obama’s policy of protecting DREAMers from deportation and set a six-month deadline for Congress to pass legislation to preserve their legal status.

As of Tuesday morning, four Republican and eight Democratic House members were confirmed for the meeting, including members of the bipartisan “Problem Solvers” caucus and the centrist Democrat Blue Dog Coalition, according to another congressional source familiar with the meeting.

The meeting appears to be another indication of Trump’s recent willingness to involve Democrats in deal-making. Last week,…

Three Democratic senators joined President Donald Trump for a White House dinner Tuesday aimed at winning their support for an as-yet unreleased tax overhaul bill that would be written by Republican leaders.

Trump’s guests — Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Donnelly of Indiana — are the only three Democratic senators who haven’t signed on to a list of conditions for supporting any tax legislation: that it not add to the federal deficit, that it not increase the burden on the middle class and that it go through the regular order process in Congress.

In reaching out to them, Trump is amplifying a White House strategy that seems squarely aimed at Democrats…

Trump Admin urges lawmakers to tell Dreamers to get ready to leave the country…

Talk about a cluster fuck?

Obama says sign up….

The peopele do….

Trump says you’re ok….

Then changes his mind….

Then throws the whole thing on Congress….

Then says I’ll reconsider in Six Months….

And his office tells lawmakers to tell people to saddle up  to leave  the only place you KNOW….Starting NOW?

The Department of Justice officially announced Tuesday that it would end DACA in six months. The program, which was created by former President Barack Obama through executive order, protects undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as minors from deportation.

And while the White House and President Donald Trump are urging Congress to come up with a legislative solution for the issue, the talking points from the Trump administration told Congress that DACA recipients should “prepare for and arrange their departure from the United States.”

“The Department of Homeland Security urges DACA recipients to use the time remaining on their work authorizations to prepare for and arrange their departure from the United States — including proactively seeking travel documentation — or to apply for other immigration benefits for which they may be eligible,” the document said, which ABC obtained and confirmed with two congressional sources and one White House official. ….

April 2017 Poll had 78% of American’s FOR Dreamers to stay in America….

But Trump seems to have just went after support form his base?

Ah, even THEY supported the progam a few months ago….

In a memo Thursday night, the Department of Homeland Security announced that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, also known as DACA, would remain in effect, although a White House official told Reuters Friday that “no final determination has been made.” Trump had previously signaled there would be little change to U.S. policy on the program, pledging in December to “work something out.”

In a Morning Consult survey from late April, almost 4 in 5 (78 percent) registered voters said the Dreamers should be allowed to stay in the country, with more than half (56 percent) expressing support for eventual citizenship.

Just 14 percent of respondents said those undocumented immigrants should be deported, a pledge made by President Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign.

There was also broad support in favor of the Dreamers among the voters who helped elect Trump in November: 73 percent of those voters said the Dreamers should be allowed to stay in the country, with almost half (48 percent) of those voters also saying they should have a path to becoming U.S. citizens….

Could ‘Dreamers’ get protection from Congress?

There IS a Bipartisan effort to draft a bill that would offer undoucumented young people a protection against being deported….

While Donald Trump has said he would increase deportations….

Trump has moved from his ‘deportation force ‘ to deporting only those who have  committed crimes….But who knows what he would do once in office?

It is unklnow if this bill being drafted would get enough support right now….The vote on the bill would be by the current sitting Congress…

Sens. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) are drafting a bill that aims to protect undocumented young people who could be at risk of deportation when President-elect Donald Trump enters the White House.

Durbin confirmed on Thursday that they were working on a bill that they hope to finish by the end of next week, after Graham discussed the plans on Wednesday. Details have yet to be finalized, but Durbin said on the Senate floor that it was a “bipartisan effort to say to the new president, give these young people a fighting chance.”

“At least protect them until we’ve had a chance to act on the larger immigration issues before us,” Durbin said.

Their plan is one of many avenues Democrats are going down to protect undocumented young people, often known as Dreamers. Many of these young people gave their personal information to the government because lawmakers urged them to do so, and now they fear Trump could use it to track them down for deportation.

Some of the lawmakers’ efforts focus on President Barack Obama, who created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, for Dreamers that Durbin, Graham and others are now seeking to protect….
