Judge Rules DACA Protections Must Stay in Place

Judge Rules DACA Protections Must Stay in Place

"Congress has a unique opportunity to act now, before the country ends up with another large population who crossed the border illegally as children". The program is now set to expire on March 5.

President Trump is again clashing with the courts over immigration.

Trump's statement comes after a California federal judge blocked the Trump administration from ending DACA - a program that protects young undocumented immigrants from deportation.

And in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Trump backed away from remarks he made on Tuesday in which he said he could eventually consider legislation providing a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants estimated to be in the United States. "The iron is hot. We can not wait", said Sen.

Some other lawmakers who have been engaged in the negotiations were also optimistic; others said no deal had yet been reached. Without a DACA legislative solution, the country stands to lose $433.1 billion in economic growth nationally, IL stands to lose $2.3 billion in GDP, and employers nationwide will lose $6.3 billion in employee turnover costs nationwide.


Donald Trump presides over a meeting about immigration with Republican and Democrat members of Congress. Lindsey Graham were meeting with Trump and GOP lawmakers to discuss a compromise plan from a bipartisan "Gang of Six" senators, but were rebuffed and told to keep working, Durbin said told reporters. He even told Democratic leaders, on camera, that he would take the heat for that if necessary to get it done. "It should be a bill of love; truly, a bill of love", the President said Tuesday.

A bipartisan group of USA senators on Thursday reached a tentative agreement on legislation to protect young "Dreamer" immigrants from deportation, along with other immigration policy changes, and is attempting to build support for the deal in Congress. Trump asked, to which White House communications director Hope Hicks interjected, saying the see-through version of the wall is "what you've always talked" about and is "consistent with what you've always 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. That proposal has been strongly opposed by Democrats and many Republicans as a futile waste of money.

The executives said it's "critical" that Congress pass DACA legislation before 19 January because former leaders of the department of homeland security have said the agency will need time to process applications before the current program expires.

"Hold up on that, because we need to see how USCIS will renew their procedure and if the administration is going to appeal and the likelihood is, yes", Aguayo stated.

The comments echoed July remarks Trump made to reporters aboard Air Force One, suggesting that the border wall needed to be transparent so that people on the United States side wouldn't get hit by massive sacks of drugs tossed over it.
