DACA Deal Or No Deal? Reports Are Mixed

President Trump speaks to the media as he meets with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg in the Oval Office on Jan. 10

Then on Thursday, a bipartisan group of senators presented the president with an agreement on new legislation for immigrants brought to the USA illegally as children.

"We were hoping for that, but the president is not prepared to do that at this moment", Durbin said.

She says Dreamers were used as political bargaining chips for immigration reform.

The president set a March 5 deadline for Congress to come up with a legal fix for the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Overnight, a federal judge temporarily blocked the Trump administration action to end DACA.

However, with President Donald Trump, "we have a commander in chief who is all in.he wants it to be bipartisan".

Bloomberg's Sahil Kapur reports on bipartisan efforts in the Senate to reach a deal on immigration.

Trump on Thursday rejected a pitch from a bipartisan team of senators on a compromise immigration deal to protect DACA participants while increasing border security. We are at a deal.


The ruling from U.S. District Judge William Alsup in San Francisco granted a request by California and other states to keep DACA going, at least until lawsuits can play out in court. "For the reasons DACA was instituted, and for the reasons tweeted by President Trump, this order finds that the public interest will be served by DACA's continuation". First, address Dreamers, the undocumented immigrants brought to this country as children. Their parents could get renewable legal status although they couldn't become citizens.

"It just shows everyone how broken and unfair our Court System is when the opposing side in a case (such as DACA) always runs to the 9th Circuit and nearly always wins before being reversed by higher courts", Trump said on Twitter. It also would dramatically boost border security and immigration enforcement.

Trump responded in agreement, saying "Yeah, I would like to do it", which prompted House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy to intervene and clarify that Republicans actually want a bill that includes border-security measures.

Trump originally said Mexico would foot the bill for the wall, a claim incredulously dismissed by the U.S.'s southern neighbor.

"That's why there are negotiations going on that the president encouraged yesterday".

There are about 780,000 DACA recipients living in the country.

But until now, Trump's support has been contingent on Congress appropriating money to build a wall on the U.S.

Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar, a Texas Republican, said he told Kelly, then DHS secretary, that someone can't just spend a few hours at the border and think they understand it.
