Trump declares 'I'm not a racist'

Hours after the US government announced it would again begin processing renewal applications for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals due to a federal court order, President Trump claimed that the program - which has granted a temporary legal reprieve to people who were brought to the USA illegally as children - was "probably dead".

On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge William Alsup issued a preliminary injunction blocking President Donald Trump's decision to end the Obama-era initiative.

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service said even those immigrants whose permits expired after September 5 could file for renewal. "You're fooling no one". "It legalizes a number of individuals, including more than the 690,000 people who are now DACA beneficiaries". "No more Lotteries!", he said.

"Like other nations that have merit-based immigration, President Trump is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation", the statement said.

Nielsen did dispute, however, Trump's assertion that DACA was "probably dead".

World leaders have denounced Trump's comments as racist. "I hope today's comments were just a crass and flippant mistake, and do not reflect the hateful racism they imply", he wrote on Twitter.

Meanwhile, dimming prospects for a 2018 spending agreement means lawmakers will have to resort to a temporary funding extension to avert a government shutdown on January 19.

Republican Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado also said Sunday that he believes the proposed deal has the support it needs and it shouldn't be bogged down in politics.

Becerra also challenged the courage of other Republicans in the room with Trump and Durbin for not confirming or denying the comments.

Congress and the White House shouldn't "let it stop the whole procedure", Manchin said in an interview on CBS's "Face the Nation".

The main issue on the table - Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.

Lawmakers and President Trump have gone back and forth over legislation that would allow DACA recipients to maintain their legal status.

Said Cerrillo: "I'm very hopeful because our community is taking action and the change comes from us not really the politicians".

But by Sunday, their recollections appeared to have sharpened, and Cotton joined Perdue in disputing Durbin's account. Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-N.C., told reporters Wednesday that conservatives aren't sold on the direction of the immigration negotiations and would not say how many he expected would vote against the bill.
