Government begins accepting DACA renewal requests

Government, citing ruling, again will accept requests for DACA protection

Rohrabacher has been part of efforts to beat back immigration legislation in 2006, 2007 and 2013.

In questioning "Why do we want all these people from Africa here?" "And their futures hang in the balance of these debates", he wrote in a column.

The Republican President sought to walk back comments he reportedly made to senators on Thursday at a White House meeting, saying, "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used".

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced in September that the Trump administration would wind down the DACA program.

Complicating the talks, Republicans on Wednesday released a flurry of new legislation created to placate concerns of conservatives wary of a potential bipartisan deal - and to address the fate of hundreds of thousands of other people living in the country under temporary legal protection.

"The story of these young people.is well-known". About 8,000 of those have been processed, with 3,238 children and family members admitted, as refugees and parolees. "The "Dreamers" have lived their whole lives in this country - many are now in their 30s".

"E-Verify is the most effective deterrent to illegal immigration because it shuts off the jobs magnet and saves jobs for hardworking Americans", Rep. Lamar Smith, a Republican from Texas, said on the House floor Wednesday.

"To no one's surprise, the President started tweeting this morning, denying he used those words", Durbin added.

"Congress needs to be more mature than the president of the United States", Rep. Darren Soto, a Florida Democrat, told BuzzFeed News. DACA has allowed them to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and get a work permit. The ruling, which is certain to be appealed, also said the government doesn't have to accept applications from people who aren't now covered by DACA. Almost everyone - 97 percent - is either in school or in the workforce. "These are good kids and we should want to help them to develop their God-given potentials. and to make their own contribution to the American dream". Republicans who feel a sense of urgency to protect DACA recipients now say that finding that kind of consensus in a matter of days or weeks simply isn't possible.


President Donald Trump blamed Democrats for stalled immigration negotiations on Twitter as he deals with backlash over vulgar comments he made in the Oval Office.

"Systematic reform of our immigration policy is absolutely vital to our nation's future". Trump past year ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which provided protection from deportation and the ability to work legally in the country.

In a 49-page ruling, Judge William Alsup of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California said his nationwide injunction is appropriate because "our country has a strong interest in the uniform application of immigration law and policy".

The statement from USCIS says people who have already been granted deportation deferral under DACA can request renewal, but the agency will not accept new requests from people who have never received deferred action before.

Short said he believes that if the U.S. Supreme Court agrees to hear the DACA lawsuit, by former Department of Homeland Secretary Janet Napolitano against current DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, the high court would ultimately end the program, so a legislative fix is the best approach.

Interestingly, despite his vehement opposition to congressional legislation on DACA, Rohrabacher is not guaranteeing a "no" vote.

But there is one thing Trump cares more about than anything else: his border wall. The group agreed to also include provisions strengthening security - which for Trump means building parts of a wall along the border with Mexico - curbing immigrants' relatives from coming here and restricting the visa lottery.

"Certain Washington politicians choose to fight for foreign countries, but President Trump will always fight for the American people", White House spokesman Raj Shah said in a statement.
