US & CANADA- WASHINGTON: IMMIGRATION – Hopes for immigration deal fade as US lawmakers trade barbs; Trump declares deal ‘probably dead’

WASHINGTON (WASHINGTON POST) – Prospects for a bipartisan agreement to protect young immigrants from deportation and prevent a government shutdown later this week faded on Sunday (Jan 14) as key lawmakers traded sharp accusations and US President Donald Trump said hopes for a deal were “probably dead”.

Negotiators spent last week seeking a solution that would shield young immigrants brought illegally to the United States as children, including the roughly 800,000 who secured work permits under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program created under President Barack Obama. AFP
