President Trump speaks at GOP Retreat in West Virginia

Trump's request, delivered in a luncheon speech at the yearly GOP policy retreat, comes as his own party remains beset with divisions on the issue, with a deadline looming for the end of a program that protects hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation.

That's according to excerpts of his remarks released by the White House.

Trump said they would either have something that is "fair and equitable and secure, or we'll have nothing at all".

Senator James Lankford was among Republicans who said this week that Trump could give Congress more time to reach a deal by extending the Dreamers' deadline beyond March 5.

The US Congress made no notable progress this week toward a deal on the status of 700,000 "Dreamer" immigrants, with President Donald Trump saying on Friday that one "could very well not happen" by a deadline next month.

"To get it done we'll have to make some compromises", Trump said, "unless we elect more Republicans".

Some Republicans have indicated they want a full-year of defense spending attached to a short-term bill, and conservatives in the House have suggested they won't support another short-term bill unless the House votes on the hardline immigration bill they support.

Inter Milan dealt blow as Sturridge moves away from Liverpool
Newcastle United had hoped Daniel Sturridge could become a permanent signing beyond this season before he defected to West Brom . He was surprisingly omitted from the squad for Saturday's (27 January) hectic FA Cup fourth-round defeat to West Brom at Anfield.

Trump said almost seven in 10 Americans support a bill with those principles, and he argued that the American people were "pleading" for "extra strength" at the border. That's unclear. It's also unclear whether strong Democratic opposition to the "four pillars" approach will eventually put a narrower scope for a deal back on the table-or whether, as many observers suspect, the whole idea is to force Democrats once again into a position of shutting down the government over immigration, and in this case by rejecting a deal that's generous to Dreamers but not anyone else.

Last month, he proposed letting 1.8 million Dreamers stay in the country and become citizens in exchange for $25 billion for the wall, curbs on family-sponsored immigration, and an end to a visa lottery programme.

"There's still a lot of work that needs to be done", said Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., the chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, in the Post's report. Would a path to citizenship be included?

President Donald Trump on Thursday will formally ask Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to use the White House's immigration overhaul framework as the legislative vehicle he introduces during a coming floor debate on the issue.

Many Democrats have slammed Trump's framework.

In his speech, in which he did not mention any benefits of immigration for a country often described as a "nation of immigrants", the president listed demands for security measures that include restricting one longtime visa program and ending another. "But the other stuff, if the stakes get raised and then other issues enter the conversation it gets more complicated, and it gets harder to pass in the House". But while some of his terms are unpalatable to Democrats, his proposal is also too liberal for some Republicans.

Trump also wants to end "chain migration", a practice that allows residents of the United States to sponsor family members for visas.
