Judge's ruling temporarily blocks President Trump's decision to end DACA

A bipartisan group of US senators has reached a deal on protecting young immigrant "Dreamers" from deportation as part of a broader immigration plan, a spokesman for Republican Senator Jeff Flake said on Thursday.

Trump announced in September that he meant to end the DACA program, which protects some 800,000 young illegal immigrants from deportation.

District Judge William Alsup, from the Northern District Court of California, issued his decision on Tuesday in which he described Trump's decision in September 2017 to end DACA and to give Congress until March 5 to resolve the situation of its beneficiaries as "arbitrary and capricious". But the fact of the matter is that they are playing a weak hand, I note in my column at The Week. But instead of winning Trump's support, as they had expected, the president launched into a broadside against immigration from Haiti and Africa.

At this stage, even diehard liberals should be asking themselves: Was Obamacare really worth it?

"An issue of this magnitude must go through the normal legislative process", Sanders said.

Democratic Senator Richard Blumenthal, a frequent Trump critic, said on Thursday the comments "smack of blatant racism, the most odious and insidious racism masquerading poorly as immigration policy".

One of those jokes, an Inquirer reporter said, was directed at her - and it was about the #MeToo movement. Cosby reportedly told the Inquirer that he's "ready" for the retrial, which is scheduled for April.

The bill tackles the issue of the future of the 690,000 youths, known as "Dreamers", who came to the USA when they were children and were permitted to stay under former President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme, which was established in 2012 and suspended by the Trump administration in September 2017. "I think the message has now been delivered that we need to get everybody at the table and we'll take the best of their ideas".

President Trump on Wednesday heaped praise on his televised White House sitdown on immigration and border security with a bipartisan group of two dozen members of the House and Senate the day before.

Verbatim, he said, "We need quick justice, and we need strong justice - much quicker and much stronger than we have right now - because what we have right now is a joke, and it's a laughingstock". "We have to have the wall for security purposes".

These Tampa Bay women say they will continue taking action for the more than 33,000 Dreamers in Florida - until a solution is made.

"I would like to see us move to a merit-based system".

"What about a clean DACA bill now and a commitment to do comprehensive next?" said Sen. "We said it from the very beginning: Donald Trump and this administration did not follow the rules in trying to abandon the DACA program". We have to have security, as the Secretary would tell you'.
