Hopes Dim for DACA Deal as Lawmakers Battle Over Trumpís Immigration Remarks
NY Times ^ | Jan. 14, 2018 | THOMAS KAPLAN and NOAH WEILAND

The senator, David Perdue of Georgia, said Mr. Trump “did not use that word,” and he accused another participant in the White House meeting, Senator Richard J. Durbin, Democrat of Illinois, of a “gross misrepresentation” of what the president had said at the session.

He and another Republican senator at the meeting, Tom Cotton of Arkansas, had previously said they did “not recall the president saying these comments specifically.” But by Sunday, their recollections appeared to have sharpened, and Mr. Cotton joined Mr. Perdue in disputing Mr. Durbin’s account.

But in Congress, the battle took on an increasingly personal dimension as Mr. Perdue and Mr. Cotton essentially accused Mr. Durbin of lying about the president’s comments, even after the vulgar remarks were widely reported and the White House did not immediately dispute that the president had made them.

Mr. Cotton said Mr. Durbin “has a history of misrepresenting what happens in White House meetings,” an assertion that Mr. Perdue made in his own interview Sunday morning on ABC’s “This Week.”

Yes, I can believe that the Dems are willing to make up such lies, to try to hurt President Trump.

Yep. The Dems were going to lose so they and the media are using this as a distraction.
There’ll be another CR to keep the gov running while the Dems and media try to think up a Plan B.

The credit for killing DACA goes to Whip Dick Turban and his “$#!@hole” lie.

Thanks, Dick!

No more CRs. Use the nuclear option and pass a regular budget for 2018.

Its all Trump’s fault because Dick Durbin made up the “nasty remark” story to cover for the fact that the Dems refused to compromise on anything. President Trump is really, really a bad guy because Durbin did this.

The democrat party is built on lies, innuendo, and misrepresentations.
In other words, he simply accused Durbin of being a Democrat.

Let’s face it....the Dems could care less about DACA....they really want to stop all the other little changes to the immigration laws where folks can come in and get citizenship without contributing.

The NY Shi_hole Slimes has to somehow make the democraps failure to concede anything to get DACA somehow someone else’s fault with Trump being the favorite candidate to blame.

This is past getting old.

“Gross misrepresentation”.
I would have called that slime bag Durbin for what he is - a f**king liar.

Boy was this brilliant. I don’t know if Trump did this on purpose or not, but it is as 100% effective as if he had just vetoed this thing, maybe better cuz they can’t override.

I guess they mean the remarks he’s denied making (several times). Don’t bother to mention that, though, NYT.

Issue an executive order to halt ALL immigration until Congress comes up with a comprehensive bill.
