Trump Draws A Red Line On Wall Funding For DACA Fix

Trump Draws A Red Line On Wall Funding For DACA Fix

".Because of the Democrats not being interested in life and safety, DACA has now taken a big step backwards".

President Donald Trump's tweets were once again used against him in court, after a federal judge in California on Tuesday blocked his administration from phasing out the Obama-era program shielding young unauthorized immigrants from deportation. Their future is the subject of a lot of debate in Washington, as NPR's Joel Rose reports.

Alsup said that reasoning was flawed because the agency and administration do have the authority to implement the program, which allows children brought to the country as undocumented immigrants stay and work legally for two-year intervals.

"You can not dismiss entire countries and continents as 'shitholes, ' whose entire populations, who are not white, are therefore not welcome", he added.

Other lawmakers say they have been frustrated they had repeatedly asked the administration to provide them with a more specific list of immigration priorities and they had not received a response. As a result, the plaintiffs are likely to succeed on the merits of their claim that the DACA wind-down decision was arbitrary and capricious, Alsup said.

Dreamers who have never received DACA protections, however, will not be allowed to apply, Alsup ordered. He's an activist with the group United We Dream and a DACA recipient himself. That clock is ticking.

He also denied demanding that Haitians be removed from negotiations about protected status for people from certain countries.

However, the Trump administration could appeal Alsup's ruling.

Peter Aguayo, director of "Insure America Project" a non-profit organization that helps with DACA applications, recommends for those who are looking to renew to wait until a concrete decision is made.

Trump announced in September he will shut down the program - Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA - March 5, giving Congress time to pass a legislative fix.

After a wild, freewheeling televised exchange about immigration policy yesterday featuring President Donald Trump playing umpire between members of Congress from both sides of the aisle, a federal judge in California issued an order saying DACA should continue nationwide.

In a meeting between President Trump and a bipartisan group of lawmakers on Tuesday at the White House, the subject of DACA bounced back and forth across the table. 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. We need the wall for security.

But Trump also added, "There are large areas where you don't need a wall". "I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs".

One White House official, Marc Short, said Trump has not approved the plan. "The difference today is the political will in the White House to get this thing done and therefore I am optimistic". It was the lowest day of his presidency. We are, by far, the most generous nation in the world for legal immigration.

The agreement among senators came as more than 100 corporate CEOs urged Congress to "act immediately and pass a permanent bipartisan legislative solution to enable Dreamers who are now living, working, and contributing to our communities to continue doing so".
