Uncertain Domination of the White House, the Immigration-Related Congress Building

As of Tuesday (7/2) the US Congress has apparently yet found a way to reach an immigration agreement that guarantees the status of 1.8 million illegal immigrants brought to America as children, even as leaders negotiate an end to the budget has been for a long time. VOA Congressional Correspondent Katherine Gypson reported the unpredictable circumstances.

When the budget deal seems almost reached in the congress, Capitol Hill, President Donald Trump adds an element of uncertainty.

He says, "I want to see the closure of government operations if we can not solve this problem. "

But unless Trump rejects a budget agreement that has been endorsed on Capitol Hill, the government will remain in operation, which the White House later clarified, as spokeswoman White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders put it. "I think we do not expect a budget agreement that includes an immigration agreement," he explained.

Trump's threat is the latest signal that the government is not serious, according to Democrats in Congress.

Chuck Schumer, chairman of the Senate Minority Faction, , "We've been through shutdown because of Trump. No one else wants closure again, maybe except him. "

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly's statement that many Dreamer (nickname for illegal immigrants brought to America as children) is too scared or too lazy to register to the DACA program (suspension of deportation), prompted many Democrats to question whether the government's promise to help is truly sincere.

The time was pressing for Dreamer after the White House rejected the bipartisan agreement of the senator Chris Coon and Senator John McCain, thus sparking a warning from the defenders of the Dreamer in the Senate.

Senator Richard Durbin of the Democratic Faction, Defenders of the Dreamers said, "This is not just a humanitarian crisis that immediately threatens. It's also an economic crisis. "

Fulfilling the promise of Senate Majority Senate Chancellor Mitch McConnell to file an immigration bill ready for debate next week simply provides an opportunity for immigration agreements, since compromises made in the Senate will take a difficult path in the House .

House Speaker Paul Ryan of the Republican Party said, "We will take a bill supported by the president. So this way, President Trump made a very serious and sincere offer of goodwill with the reform he sent to the Congress Building. That's what we're supposed to do. "

Republican lawmakers continue to hope that the four-point immigration plan from President Trump will pass.

Tom Cole, a Republican member of the House of Representatives, He said, "I think the president surprised the Democratic Faction when he doubled the number of populations we discussed for citizenship. The Democratic Faction is already willing to hold talks on border security. Two other things are plausible but also negotiable. "

But the talks never settled on Capitol Hill, and the Democrats seem to be far from reaching an agreement with the White House.

Judy Chu, a Democratic member of the House of Representatives, This is because the president does not understand the immigration law he wants to change or he deliberately confuses the public to pass his own agenda. "

The deadlock is likely to continue until the March 5 date of the DACA entry into force. [lt/uh]
