For immigrants, Trump's 's**thole' comments distract from talks on DACA deal

Robotic-Guided Spine Surgery Gives One Woman Her Life Back

When Trump abruptly ended DACA in September, sending Attorney General Jeff Sessions before the cameras to deliver the bad news in nearly gleeful fashion, it threw the lives of hundreds of thousands of people into chaos.

Sanders called the decision "outrageous, especially in light of the President's successful bipartisan meeting with House and Senate members at the White House" on immigration reform on Tuesday. Their hardened stance, combined with their general aversion and opposition to President Donald Trump, makes them loath to agree to a down payment on a border wall as part of any deal.

The immigration effort seemed to receive a boost Tuesday when Trump met with two dozen lawmakers and agreed to seek a bipartisan way to resuscitate the program.

For all the ongoing negotiations, groups, and proposals related to the expiring Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, senior Republicans in both chambers have shifted gears fully to the idea that the government will need to be funded on January 19 without a DACA solution. Trump ended the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program previous year but has given Congress until March 5 to find a way to keep it alive. Trump has terminated it but given lawmakers until March 5 to craft legislation reviving its protections.

Alsup ruled that the federal government must "maintain [DACA] on a nationwide basis" while legal challenges to ending the program proceed in court.

Schumer said the judge's ruling "is no guarantee of lasting security" because the judge could be overruled later by a higher court.

"I don't think the administration is going to get a stay in the 9th Circuit, so I think they're going to try to get a stay in the Supreme Court", she said. "The iron is hot". Some Democrats are threatening to withhold their votes - which Republicans will need to push that legislation through Congress - unless an immigration accord is reached.


"A resolution to the DACA issue must be part of a global deal on the budget". Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., told reporters Thursday.

DICK DURBIN: I am doing my best to get everything I can under the current political circumstances. That second bill would likely face long odds for passage, considering long-running disagreements over issues like how to handle all 11 million immigrants illegally in the U.S.

"It's got to include the wall", Trump said at a news conference Wednesday at the White House.

Earlier, Mr Trump had taken command of the White House meeting to coax Republican and Democratic lawmakers towards a compromise on the fate of Dreamers. "We have to have security, as the Secretary would tell you".

The Trump administration announced in September it would phase out DACA over six months, giving Congress time to enact a solution.

"There are a lot of us on the border who understand the border very well", he said.

JOAQUIN CASTRO: We shouldn't trade the lives of 800,000 young people - young DREAMers for a wall across the United States of America. We need the wall for security. He'd made similar statements a year ago, but this time it was in the context of negotiations for actual legislation. The government runs out of funds in less than a week, and without a deal a government shutdown is possible, though both sides think they'll be able to reach some form of agreement before then.
