Judge: DACA can't end with lawsuit pending

Judge: DACA can't end with lawsuit pending

On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge William Alsup granted a request by California and other plaintiffs to prevent Trump from ending the DACA program while their lawsuits play out in court.

Local immigration advocates are breathing a sigh of relief after a federal judge ruled against a controversial White House effort.

To avoid that, the judge ordered Trump to partially resume the programme until there is a definitive solution in all pending litigation over the scheme.

USA president Donald Trump has criticised a court order blocking his plan to phase out support for so-called "dreamers" and described the U.S. court system as "broken and unfair".

Trump also reportedly said "Why do we need more Haitians?" and "Take them out" during the meeting as well.

He says approval of a wall must accompany protection for DACA recipients.

President Obama created America's DACA kids by executive order in 2012 with his Deferred Action for Child Arrivals program, which delayed the deportation of "Dreamers" who signed up for it for two years.

The White House ripped the decision in a statement Wednesday morning, saying that it was "outrageous, especially in light of the President's successful bipartisan meeting with House and Senate members at the White House on the same day".

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.

U.S. looking at free trade agreement with India
China wants that in case the NPT clause is waived off for India then Pakistan should also be allowed to be a member of the NSG. Our leaders are committed to supporting Afghanistan and helping build that country's democratic institutions.

Clearly, Congress should approve a legal resolution to the matter.

In this case, Republicans need to explain to the country why they are insisting on Congress doing DACA and immigration reform together.

"It's got to include the wall", Trump said at a news conference Wednesday at the White House. Drugs are pouring into our country at a record pace.

"The two incidents we faced in NY which a terrorist ran over five individuals and killed them, he came here via chain migration ... it is time that we end those programs for the safety of Americans, It is also time that we secure our border".

Short said the administration is concerned about a number of issues including the amount of protection at the U.S. -Mexico border and family preferences for immigrants.

He clarified that he could only speak for his chamber - the House of Representatives - but suspected the "overwhelming majority" of Senate Democrats would also oppose border wall funding.

That last tweet by the President referred to a story that emerged late Thursday, when he used a derogatory term to refer to immigrants from certain countries, which earned him rebukes from many Democrats, but only a handful of Republicans.

"Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military?" We're going to address chain migration.
