The White House set an ambitious goal for Congress Tuesday - passing a comprehensive immigration overhaul in six months - even as it belittled fellow Republicans who control the House and Senate for failing to pass laws and for taking a summer recess.

Sessions says the USA needs to have a lawful immigration that "serves the national interest" and the US can not admit everyone who wants to come to the country.

House Speaker Paul Ryan says Barack Obama's existing policy for immigrants brought to the country as children was a "clear abuse of executive authority" and now it's incumbent upon Congress to act.

"I don't think the president's been shy about the fact that he wants a wall and certainly something that he feels is an important part of a responsible immigration reform package", Sanders said.

Isn't it hard to defend President Trump sometimes?

President Donald Trump met with congressional leaders Wednesday to discuss plans for their fall legislative agenda. The president has said he would prefer a merit-based system of immigration.

JOHNSON: Praeli says she feels vulnerable because she shared personal information with the feds.

"I think this has been pretty well addressed", Sanders laughed.

President Donald Trump says Congress should "get ready" to take on immigration legislation.

Sanders reiterated that it's Congress's job to legislate when it comes to issues like DACA when another reporter expressed skepticism that a legislative fix would come in time. "And if they can't, then they should get out of the way and let somebody else take their job, that can actually get something done".

"Both of Missouri's U.S. Senators shared thoughts on the decision by the White House". NPR's Carrie Johnson reports the Justice Department concluded the program is unconstitutional.
