Almost 800,000 people who came to the U.S. illegally as children were protected under the Obama administration, but Trump will scrap the so-called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program on March 5 unless Congress legislates a fix. The president reportedly called certain countries, including Haiti, "s-hole" places when discussing immigration issues from those areas. He said that regardless of what Mr. Trump said, however, lawmakers need to come together on so-called Dreamers, or those brought to the US illegally as children. "I thought about my own family", Mr. Ryan, Wisconsin Republican, said at an event in Wisconsin.

"I hear all these stories from my relatives about 'Irish need not apply.' We could basically get construction jobs (or be) cops or firefighters". He was not on the same page, however, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who rejected the idea just before Christmas. The Irish people were really looked down upon in those days. The president said overhauling social safety net programs is "going to have to be bipartisan".
