Why Reaching A DACA Deal Could Be Tough


Trump denounced the deal reached by a group of six Republican and Democratic senators as too weak and insisted he did not use the word "shithole" to describe Haiti and African countries.

"Dreamers", people brought to the USA illegally as children, and other supporters of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, listened, Wednesday, as lawmakers spoke at the Capitol in Washington.

Kelly, a retired four-star Marine general, previously served as the secretary of Homeland Security and commander of United States Southern Command, responsible for military operations in Central America, South America and the Caribbean.

Alsup's decision follows a number of rulings by other US judges seeking to rein in Trump's immigration policies, including decisions that limited administration moves against sanctuary cities and narrowed the scope of a ban against travel from some Muslim-majority counties.

In his ruling, Alsup wrote that lawyers for the immigrants' "have clearly demonstrated that they are likely to suffer serious, irreparable harm", unless the court steps in with an injunction. Kelly will not attend every meeting but he is now responsible for getting a deal done.

The remarks by Trump and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., came a day after the president and top lawmakers used a White House meeting to agree to pursue a pact that would protect those immigrants and bolster border security. They listed those countries. This week the administration provided lawmakers with a DHS document with more information about each of its priorities. "But I think, to me, a clean bill is a bill of DACA, we take care of them, and we also take care of security".

A 2013 bill that passed the Senate but died without a vote in the House remains a good blueprint for immigration reform.

A group of bipartisan senators has reached a deal on legislation to protect younger immigrants brought to the country illegally, a spokesman for Sen.

Mr. Trump again made clear that he wants a plan which has substantial resources to build a wall along the Mexican border, ends what is known as chain migration, and gets rid of a visa lottery program. But the White House later rejected it, plunging the issue back into uncertainty just eight days before a deadline that threatens a government shutdown. We can make this land sparkle even more by choosing those we most need, including some unskilled.

In September, President Donald Trump announced that he would end DACA, which President Barack Obama created by executive order in 2012.

Trump 'Unlikely' to Meet Mueller, Backpedals on Previous Commitment
Schumer continued, "Here is the president of the United States imploring his party to take control of the investigation". Trump usually takes two questions from USA journalists when he has a joint news conference with a foreign head of state.

For that, he has his critics. "Now the courts have told the government they have to play by the rules", Rosenbaum said. It just needs a majority in the House and Senate. Democrats have been willing to discuss changes to those programs, but aren't willing to go almost as far as people like Cotton or hardline White House advisers like Stephen Miller want.

Earlier on Thursday, Republicans in the House of Representatives told reporters there had been substantial progress toward a deal. He also attended a meeting with a dozen senators December 19 on Capitol Hill.

Eventually, Trump is going to need to decide how he actually feels about protecting Dreamers: Is it the urgent necessity that he called on Congress to pass, or an odious concession that is only acceptable when paired with a restrictionist revolution in American immigration policy?

"It's pushing for something to come through", said Natalia Ramirez, who came to the country at the age of 3 and now runs a Ventura bookkeeping business with her sister.

"I would like to see us move to a merit-based system". Fortunately, Mr. Trump, on Wednesday, walked back such comments about signing most anything Congress placed on his desk relative to immigration, and reiterated his challenge to Capitol Hill, "No wall, no deal on DACA (Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals)".
