Most Americans Want Legal Status for ‘Dreamers.’ These People Don’t.

“I think DACA recipients should be given a few months to get their affairs in order and return to their home countries,” said Ms. Sterry, 58, a former math teacher, referring to the Obama-era program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, that President Trump has ended but which could be revived or replaced in a congressional deal.And to those who contend that the young immigrants would be marooned in a country they do not remember, Ms. Sterry says: “Parents and children can all go home together.”Less than a quarter of American voters, and in some polls as few as one in 10, share Ms. Sterry’s beliefs. But they show how the country’s conflicted emotions about undocumented immigrants have stymied legislation for more than a decade, polarizing both parties and most recently leading to the short-lived government shutdown that still did not settle the issue.Their counterparts on the liberal side are the progressives who are upset with Senate Democrats like Chuck Schumer, the minority leader, for allowing the government to reopen without a guarantee of protection for DACA recipients, known as Dreamers.On the Republican side, moderates are feeling the pull of hard-line members who want any legalization bill to incorporate significant changes to immigration enforcement, including measures Democrats generally oppose, such as funding for a border wall, a sharp reduction in overall migration, and a shift to merit-based admissions from a family-based system that critics call “chain migration.”GraphicA Typical ‘Dreamer’ Lives in Los Angeles, Is From Mexico and Came to the U.S. at 6 Years OldThere are roughly 800,000 current beneficiaries of the DACA program.

‘Everything I’ve Done Is 100 Percent Proper,’ Trump Says of Russia Inquiry

On one of the most pressing issues — whether to renew protections for the young immigrants known as Dreamers — the president said he hoped he could strike a deal with Democrats, but added that there would be no deal unless it included construction of a border wall with Mexico, a condition Democrats are unlikely to accept.Newsletter Sign UpContinue reading the main storyThank you for subscribing.An error has occurred.

Democrats oppose such changes, and Mr. Trump seemed to concede that the issue might have to wait behind more pressing matters like military funding and infrastructure legislation.Flanked by the Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, and Speaker Paul D. Ryan, among other officials, the president pronounced his meetings with Republican congressional leaders “perhaps transformative in certain ways.”He also vowed to campaign vigorously for Republican candidates in the midterm elections.“We need more Republicans,” Mr. Trump said.A version of this article appears in print on January 7, 2018, on Page A21 of the New York edition with the headline: ‘No Collusion,’ President Says.

Trump’s Tough Talk on Nafta Suggests Pact’s Demise Is Imminent

The collapse of the 1994 trade deal would reverberate throughout the global economy, inflicting damage far beyond Mexico, Canada and the United States and affecting industries as varied as manufacturing, agriculture and energy. It would also sow at least short-term chaos for businesses, like the auto industry, which have arranged their North American supply chains around the deal’s terms.The ripple effects could also impede other aspects of the president’s agenda, for example, by solidifying political opposition among farm state Republicans who support the pact and jeopardizing legislative priorities like tax reform. And it could have far-reaching political effects, including the Mexican general election in July 2018 and Mr. Trump’s own re-election campaign.PhotoPrime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada met Wednesday with members of the House Ways and Means Committee about the Nafta negotiations on Capitol Hill in Washington.Credit Saul Loeb/Agence France-Presse — Getty ImagesBusiness leaders have become spooked by the increasing odds of the trade deal’s demise, and on Monday, more than 310 state and local chambers of commerce sent a letter to the administration urging the United States to remain in Nafta. Speaking in Mexico on Tuesday, the president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Thomas J. Donohue, said the negotiations had “reached a critical moment. And the chamber has had no choice but ring the alarm bells.”“Let me be forceful and direct,” he said. […]
