Trump calls United States courts 'unfair' after 'Dreamers' ruling

Her glimmer of hope was reignited following an announcement by a California judge to temporarily block the Trump administration's decision to end the DACA program.

In the meantime, a federal judge has made a significant ruling on how to address those young immigrants while Congress continues to negotiate.

Let me pick up on what happened after that White House meeting on immigration President Donald Trump hosted on Tuesday - the one he turned into an nearly hour-long show, with Sen.

Trump at the meeting urged bipartisan cooperation to address the status of Dreamers, people who immigrated to the U.S. illegally as minors, as well as border security.

DACA was implemented in 2012 by the Obama Administration and since then, it has protected an estimated 800,000 people who were brought to the United States as children.

Lawyers in favor of DACA clearly demonstrated that the young immigrants "were likely to suffer serious, irreparable harm" without court action, said Alsup, who added that the lawyers have a strong chance of succeeding at trial. "We need our parents, we need our brothers, [and] we need our sisters".

"An issue of this magnitude must go through the normal legislative process", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

Some Republicans in Tuesday's meeting, an extraordinary televised bargain session, clearly believed that Trump misstated his own position when, in answer to a question from California Sen. Some of the immigration slots under the visa lottery program would be used for all people in the the USA who have lost their temporary protected status, and some would be used for people from low-immigration countries. "And we can't take one thing for granted". "We make a good deal on NAFTA, and, say, 'I'm going to take a small percentage of that money and it's going toward the wall.' Guess what?" But that seems unlikely, as lawmakers are now expected to approve another short-term funding resolution.

The committee chairman said the Catholic leaders are ready to work with Congress and the White House to find a solution, but he also cautioned against including "unrelated, unnecessary or controversial elements of immigration policy" in a fix for DACA.

ROSE: Hard-liners in Congress and the White House want other changes to the legal immigration system that could also alienate Democrats.

Meanwhile, there is "no reason" the government should shut down over DACA, said Short. So eager were they to cover that up that they issued a fake transcript that did not include him saying he would vote for a clean DACA bill before a larger immigration package and the border wall (they later issued a more accurate one, after their censorship of the proceedings was reported). I want safety and security for our people.
