Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., leader of the hard-right House Freedom Caucus, said in a text message after the White House meeting he was "generally" opposed to a two-step process "because history would indicate the second step never happens".
The immigration talks pit a president who made the construction of a border wall a central piece of his 2016 campaign against congressional Democrats who have sought to preserve the Obama-era protections for the young immigrants.
"Democrats are for security at the border", Hoyer told Trump during the meeting.
House Republicans said they planned to soon introduce legislation to address border security and the young immigrants. Trump said, 'it should be a bill of love'.
President Donald Trump signaled Tuesday he could support a deal to allow hundreds of thousands of immigrants living in the country illegally to keep their status, but only as part of a broader border security deal. They won't be able to credibly blame Republicans for a government shut down because President Trump has given Congress until March to come up with DACA legislation.
And Democrats signaled they could accept some sort of fenching.
"I think a lot of Republicans are looking to the president to see, what are you going to insist upon?"

President Donald Trump urged Congress on Tuesday to reach a compromise on the fate of millions of undocumented migrants who came to the United States as children, but did not give ground to Democrats over his plans for a border wall.

"We're very encouraged by the way the president has been framing this issue", Beck said. Then, Trump said he would be open to seeing Congress implement comprehensive immigration reform. "We have to have the wall".
"R$3 ight now, the Democrats are holding that deal hostage for a DACA negotiation".
"If the White House backtracks on what they said they're going to get from a DACA bill, it's going to have negative political consequences for the president", said Ruark. They include a crackdown on "sanctuary cities" that don't fully comply with federal immigration enforcement efforts, funding for Trump's wall and a requirement that all USA business use the E-Verify online system to check the immigration status of job applicants.
Asked if Tuesday provided the clarity that lawmakers have been asking for, Lankford said there was still more to be done.
Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt. suggested an "easy way out" of the stalemate.
"I know President Trump would never lie about something", Leahy said sarcastically.
"You can put the most attractive wall out there and it's not going to stop them", Cuellar remarked. "In some form, Mexico will pay for the wall".
