Judge Rules DACA Protections Must Stay in Place

Working with countries like India is a good thing says President Trump

So the White House was essentially - as Breitbart correctly pointed out - thumbing its nose at the idea of a bipartisan DACA deal. The ruling strikes the Trump administration March deadline for Congress to come up with new legislation.

Trump at the meeting urged bipartisan cooperation to address the status of Dreamers, people who immigrated to the USA illegally as minors, as well as border security. And for that they can blame President Barack Obama who prioritized health care reform, which had zero bipartisan support, over immigration reform, which both sides desperately wanted at that time, making a mess of both. Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Sen.

Even as the senators announced their agreement, it appeared Congress had to overcome some hurdles to craft legislation that could pass both chambers of the GOP-held Congress and get President 's signature.

"An issue of this magnitude must go through the normal legislative process", Sanders said.

Alsup said immigrants protected by the program must be allowed to renew their enrollments while the lawsuits are pending, but new applications can be set aside. It was unclear why the four Republicans were there, and the session did not produce the results the two senators were hoping for.

Trump continued his Twitter tirade, saying the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) has also taken a "big step backwards".

Durbin - who founded the movement to protect DREAMers, youths illegally in the US through no fault of their own - is one of the lead Democratic negotiators.

Federal agencies will run out of money and have to shut down if lawmakers don't pass legislation extending their financing by January 19.

The White House issued a statement rejecting "weak and unsafe stopgap measures" on immigration but did not deny Trump's remarks. "The President and all those attending the meeting know what I said and how I feel", Graham said in a statement. Just 24 hours earlier he had said that he would not sign any bill to codify DACA that did not include funding for the border wall.

"Durbin said Graham immediately spoke up against Trump's comments, and he commended the Republican senator for doing so".

In another tweet made by Trump on September 14, he wrote, "Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military?"

Without the President's buy-in, the work of the group can't reach the Senate floor, Republican leadership said. "It also increases boots on the ground", limits immigrants from bringing family members into the country in the future, and ends the green card lottery system, he added.

Then, Trump said, Congress should try - again - to resolve the thornier issues of border security, updating policies for legal immigration and what to do about the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States. He stressed the need for "surveillance" and "manpower" in tandem with that.

The 2012 program deferred deportation for the immigrants and allowed them to obtain work permits.

Democrats have a massive 17-point advantage over Republicans in a new generic congressional ballot.
