Reaction to judge's decision to block the end of DACA

Donald Trump Kevin McCarthy

Negotiations over a deal on the DACA program, which has protected undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children from being deported, froze this week after Trump derided African nations as "sh-hole countries" and asked why more immigrants couldn't come from Norway during a closed-door meeting with lawmakers to discuss a bipartisan immigration proposal.

Trump previous year ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which provided protection from deportation and the ability to work legally in the country. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., who took part in meeting.

"I'm grateful for it right now because many people who have DACA can renew, so that means they're safe right now", said Leon.

"We are now working to build support for that deal in Congress", said Sen. The administration plans to appeal.

"The words used by the president, as related to me directly following the meeting by those in attendance, were not 'tough, ' they were abhorrent and repulsive", tweeted Arizona Sen.

On Tuesday U.S. District Judge William Alsup of the 9th circuit court in San Francisco blocked President Trump's administration from ending the program protecting those who were brought to the United States illegally at a young age from deportation.

It does not open the door to the possibility of obtaining USA citizenship, one of the key points for the opposition Democrats. Richard Durbin of IL - a leader of the bipartisan Senate group - was among the seven lawmakers at the noontime meeting. Lindsey Graham of SC and Dick Durbin of IL, agreed on a plan to shield hundreds of thousands of immigrants protected under DACA from being deported.

Multiple groups in Congress are working on their own solutions for immigration as they race to pass a spending bill before the government runs out of funding Friday.

"Passing an amnesty bill that continues chain migration and has only fig-leaf token efforts and border security would be a serious mistake", Cruz said.

The news was largely welcomed on Capitol Hill, where some accuse Trump's controversial senior policy adviser Stephen Miller of standing in the way of a deal on immigration and others said they didn't know who to talk to about the contentious issue.

"Trump just concluded a successful bipartisan and bicameral meeting on immigration reform", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

That bill cleared the Senate, but only after others added a massive new injection of border security - including 350 miles of border fence. "Wall was not properly funded, Chain (migration) & (Diversity Visa) Lottery were made worse and US would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime countries which are doing badly", he wrote Friday on Twitter.

The bipartisan group - including Flake as well as Sens.

White House spokesperson Raj Shah did not deny Trump's "shithole" remark, but instead emphasized in a statement the President "is fighting for permanent solutions that make our country stronger by welcoming those who can contribute to our society, grow our economy and assimilate into our great nation".

Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn said the gang of six's work is not enough to get a vote, and said that any path forward will have to come from talks among a broader group of lawmakers including Republican leadership.

"The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators was a big step backwards", the President tweeted early on Friday.
