Judge blocks Trump decision to end young immigrant program

Judge blocks Trump decision to end young immigrant program

President Donald Trump's dismissal of Haiti and certain African countries with a vulgar expression has created a furor.

Republican Sens. Tom Cotton and David Perdue and Republican Reps. "I am hopeful that we can make some real progress on solving this problem".

"Mr. President you need to be clear though, I think what Senator Feinstein is asking here, when we talk about DACA, we don't want to be back here two years later, you have to have security", said McCarthy.

The comments reportedly alarmed and mystified the people attending the meeting. When they got to Haiti, we're told by Democrats he responded, why would we want so many people from Haiti here?

"The American ideal is embraced by people all over the globe".

"Every morning, the thought goes through my head, 'Is this the last day my parents are going to be here?'" said Vega, a 23-year-old Ventura College student who came to the country illegally with his parents when he was 3. Diversity has always been our strength, not our weakness.

"Yesterday's decision was great, but it's not a win because we still don't have a comprehensive immigration reform, a Dream Act or full DACA reinstituted", she said. And today I know the leaders in the House and the Senate are meeting to discuss a timeline.

"Yeah, I would like to do it, " Trump said. "That's not how a president behaves".

The program protects almost 800,000 undocumented young people, or "dreamers", who came to America as children. I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs.

"And during their lifetime, leaders in Washington have not been able to reach an agreement to fix the broken immigration system that allowed them to enter in the first place".




But Trump rejected the deal, plunging the issue back into uncertainty just eight days before a deadline that threatens a government shutdown. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham and Democratic Senator Dick Durbin came to the White House to outline their bipartisan compromise, but found themselves in the room with several Republican immigration hardliners.

The Senate group has been working for months in hopes of crafting legislation that would prevent the around 700,000 illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children - known as Dreamers - from being subject to deportation after Trump ended a program providing them with temporary legal status and work permits.

That's according to aides familiar with the pact, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the agreement has not yet been made public.

Congress must separate "the conversation about DACA" from the "larger issues" about US immigration policy, because allowing the program to expire will lead "to a humanitarian crisis", especially in Los Angeles, said Archbishop Jose H. Gomez.

In a move rare for any president, Trump let the camera-wielding press pool stay for 55 minutes, which Trump transformed into a reality show episode - one with enormous real consequences for DREAMers in danger of being deported.

"These are shocking and shameful comments from the President of the United States".

The tone of the discussion, and Mr. Trump's eagerness to strike a deal, triggered warm responses from some of his sharpest critics in both parties. He also blamed "both sides" after a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, turned violent.

But in a tweet storm Friday, Trump characterized the "so-called bipartisan DACA deal" as "a step backwards".

"Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and U.S. would be forced to take large number of people from high crime countries which are doing badly", Trump tweeted Friday regarding the bipartisan agreement before placing blame on Democrats.

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