President Donald Trump speaks to reporters before leaving the White House in Washington for a brief stop at Andrews Air Force Base in Md. on his way to Greensboro N.C. The Trump administration sent an immigration policy wish

US President Donald Trump on Sunday presented congressional leaders with a list of hard-line policy wishes that he says must be enacted in exchange for a deal with Democrats to protect hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation.

Ronald Vitiello, U.S. Customs and Border Protection's acting deputy commissioner, said the asylum system has served as a magnet for illegal immigration, contains too many loopholes and is in desperate need of reform.

The demands include some policies that Democrats say are off the table, and thus could potentially derail ongoing negotiations over protecting young immigrants from deportation, many of whom were brought to the U.S. illegally as children.

The priorities outlined by the White House also include curbs on legal immigration, a move senior White House officials called essential to protect the safety and economic security of USA citizens. Lawmakers from both sides have supported providing a pathway for legal status for DACA recipients, the website noted.

For the subsequent slabs, it will go up by Rs10 each, which means the maximum fare will be Rs60. Thereafter, a Fare Fixation Committee can be constituted.

A cover letter sent to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer stated, "These findings outline reforms that must be included as part of any legislation addressing the status of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients". Also to be pursued is an overhaul of the green card system to prevent extended family members from joining permanent residents in the USA, including siblings and adult children.

Regarding border security, Trump reiterated his proposal to construct a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, which has been one of his most prominent campaign promises.

The White House releases a list of immigration demands to Congress as part of a deal for dreamers. The White House made clear it would not be pushing for Dreamers to achieve United States citizenship, only legal status, in a potential deal.

Top congressional Democrats say the list is unreasonable and fails to represent any attempt at compromise. Another priority detailed is bolstering E-Verify, the key to locking illegal immigrants out of coveted American jobs and helping tens of thousands of US workers reenter the workforce. They include funding for Trump's border wall, drastically increased immigration enforcement, and even new restrictions on legal immigration.

Even though it was serving as the home team in London, this will be Miami's first actual home game of the season. The Titans signed Brandon Weeden this week as an emergency quarterback and have Matt Cassel ready to go.

However, there was no reference to the H-1B visas, the most sought after by Indian IT professionals, in the proposal which Mr. Trump sent to Congress on Sunday.

Pelosi and Schumer had met with the president over dinner last month, after which all emerged saying they had a rough agreement for a deal on DACA. However, Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto has made clear on numerous occasions he did not agree with the wall and Mexico would offer no funds towards its construction.

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, which has protected almost 800,000 young adult unauthorized immigrants from deportation and allowed them to work legally since 2012.

When Democrats struck a tentative deal last month with the president to protect "dreamers" from deportations, they were skeptical that it would turn into anything real. The RAISE Act - the Trump-endorsed bill that would cut legal immigration in half over the next decade - isn't in the White House's principles document by name.
