California attorney general lauds DACA ruling

Open this

"It just shows everyone how broken and unfair" the court system is, Trump tweeted.

R-Va., joins Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti to discuss the bill, one of several proposals being floated as lawmakers try to reach an agreement on a DACA "fix" before the program expires in March.

A federal judge in San Francisco on Tuesday barred the Trump administration from turning back the Obama-era DACA program, which shielded more than 700,000 people from deportation, Reuters reported.

JOEL ROSE, BYLINE: It's been a year of lows and highs for the so-called DREAMers.

Justice Department spokesman Devin O'Malley said in a statement to the Associated Press, "The Justice Department will continue to vigorously defend this position, and looks forward to vindicating its position in further litigation". Becerra joined the attorneys general of Maine, Maryland and Minnesota - as well as other plaintiffs, including the University of California - in litigation to block the decision. His office brought the case along with the University of California and other plaintiffs. Every week, hundreds of DACA recipients are losing their status as the program winds down.

We spoke to an immigration lawyer in Salisbury about what this means for recipients.

ADRIAN REYNA: Don't let anyone tell you that the urgency to get this done is not real. The clock is ticking. "It's hard to live your daily life, if you don't know if you're going to lose your status the next day".


The judge ruled that the program must stay intact, while the legal battle plays out. The order is only a temporary injunction. "Finally to hear this is a sign of hope, light at the end of the tunnel", said Diana Platas, a young undocumented woman with hopes of becoming a lawyer. But this legal battle is not the only thing that could complicate delicate negotiations on the Hill. "Any solution has to include the wall, because without the wall, it all doesn't work".

On Thursday, Flake said the physical structure Trump has called for does not need to be a "wall" but "more of a fence".

"We need the wall for security, for safety, we need the wall from stopping the drugs from pouring in", he continued.

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 USA side wouldn't get hit by massive sacks of drugs tossed over it. House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn and Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin attended the meeting.

"The Democrats have been told, and fully understand, that there can be no DACA without the desperately needed WALL at the Southern Border and an END to the awful Chain Migration & ridiculous Lottery System of Immigration etc".

BOB GOODLATTE: It cracks down on sanctuary cities, increases criminal penalties for deported criminals who illegally return and makes the E-Verify program mandatory.
