Washington (CNN)Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer states he firmly insisted leading White House advisor Stephen Miller be stayed out of a current White House conference with President Donald Trump as they aimed to reach an offer on migration to prevent a federal government shutdown.

“I stated if you’re going to have Stephen Miller there or someone like that, it’s not going to work,” Schumer stated in an interview with The New York Times’ podcast “The Daily” that was released Friday.
“And (Trump) concurred,” the New York Democrat stated.
      Miller is among the administration’s most conservative voices when it pertains to migration. Miller’s function in migration conversations has actually been slammed by other senators, consisting of the No. 2 Senate Democrat, Dick Durbin of Illinois, who stated recently that “any effort to eliminate migration reform most likely has Miller’s finger prints on it.”
      Schumer stated he and Trump invested a half and an hour “on the criteria of exactly what might be a lot for him and I believe for the Dreamers,” describing the undocumented immigrants who were given the United States as kids.
      “I stated, ‘We have to assist (the Dreamers)’ and he stated, ‘I concur.’ And he stated, ‘But I require border security.’ We invested about 15, 20 minutes working out about the wall and at the end he made a recommendation. I stated, ‘We’ll take it,'” Schumer remembered.
      Schumer restated that he did deal financing for the wall Trump desires on the US-Mexico border in exchange for “complete defense” for 1.5 million undocumented immigrants.
      The settlements in between the President and the Democrats’ leading leader in the Senate were eventually not successful in attempting to strike a deal and avoid the shutdown that lasted over the weekend.
      Schumer likewise shared exactly what the 2 had for lunch: cheeseburgers.
      “I am attempting to lose a little weight. I have for lunch normally a cheeseburger with no bun. And he served it. I think they should have asked someone,” Schumer stated.
      Schumer continued, “And (Trump) had a cheeseburger with a bun and a great deal of French french fries. I stated, ‘You’re not truly paying a great deal of focus on your diet plan.’ He stated ‘no.'”
