Speaking with reporters, Graham singled out White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller as an "outlier", and said despite President Donald Trump's willingness to forge a deal, his aides have made such negotiations hard.

"The White House staff has been pretty unreliable", Graham said.

ADVERTISEMENTGOP Sen. has criticized Miller throughout the negotiations, the Times noted, with the SC lawmaker referring to the Trump aide as an "outlier".

At the center of the fight is the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which President Trump said a year ago he would rescind while providing Congress with a window of time to craft a legislative fix. They also felt ambushed: The meeting that they thought would be them and the president included White House aides, like Miller, and conservatives like House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Sen.

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham hasn't been successful in ending the federal government shutdown yet, so the South Carolina Republican has taken a new approach.

This is the third consecutive day of the government's shutdown over the inability of its legislators to reach an agreement on the future of the Dreamers, while the entire country is torn between whom to blame. And every time we have a proposal, it is only yanked back by staff members'. Lindsey Graham and Dick Durbin "amnesty", and slammed the two lawmakers as "dishonest" in their presentation of the plan to President Donald Trump.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders is holding a daily press briefing at 1:30 p.m., when she will likely weigh in on the vote and the status of negotiations.

However, experts said that regardless of any breakthrough Mueller makes, there would be procedural and legal hurdles before he could initiate any charges against a sitting president.

Miller is an immigration hardliner and has a track record of working against immigration compromises. He's been an outlier for years, ' Graham told reporters at the Capitol on Sunday.

Schumer, Trump and their chiefs of staff sat in the Oval Office, where - according to the New York Democrat - Schumer offered to fund the military and put Trump's signature wall around the US-Mexico border "on the table".

"Nobody raised their voice but there was real pushback", said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies, who complained that there was little to no consultation with any of the conservative groups before the plan was released.

"As long as Sen". Graham suspects Miller is responsible for scuttling an earlier deal on so-called Dreamers after Trump had agreed to it. Even before the government reopened, the rush to Trump's ear began in earnest Monday as a half-dozen of the Senate's immigration hard-liners came to the White House for talks. Graham chooses to support legislation that sides with people in this country illegally and unlawfully instead of our own American citizens, we are going nowhere. We have to fund our government. I think he's got a good understanding of what will sel.

"Winning is ensuring we have a process in place to deal with expiration of DACA, as these young people know no other home than the United States".

One senior Republican aide said Trump was "giving away the farm" with the framework. When the president first announced back in September he was scrapping the program implemented by Barack Obama through executive order, it looked as if he would quickly give what the Democrats wanted.
