Sen. Chuck Grassley on Thursday asked the Trump administration to brief the Senate Judiciary Committee on the bipartisan deal on Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and border security.
Grassley said President Trump's deal with top Democratic leaders "undercut" the judiciary committee's effort to achieve a bipartisan deal on border security.
"@realDonaldTrump Morn news says u made deal w Schumer on DACA/hv ur staff brief me/ I know u undercut JudiCimm effort 4 biparty agreement," Grassley tweeted Thursday morning.
Grassley also mentioned, on Texas Sen. John Cornyn's suggestion, he's tweeting a photo of his birthday cake brought by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., during the committee meeting.
Trump met with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., at the White House Wednesday night to discuss DACA, border security, tax reform, and other policy issues.
"We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that's acceptable to both sides," Schumer and Pelosi said in a joint statement.
Trump on Thursday said that House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are "on board" with a tentative bipartisan plan to pass the Dream Act with border security measures, which excludes building the border wall.
"Mitch is on board. Paul Ryan is on board. We all feel — look, 92 percent of the people agree on DACA, but what we want is we want very, very powerful border security, okay," he said before leaving for Florida to survey the damage of Hurricane Irma.
"Well, we want to get massive border security, and I think both Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, I think they agree with it. … I think we're fairly close, but we have to get massive border security." Trump said.
