In remarks on Twitter, Donald Trump said he did not believe the opposition party truly wanted to negotiate a new arrangement for so-called Dreamers (undocumented migrants brought to the United States illegally when they were children), 690,000 of whom are now shielded from deportation by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme, Efe reported.
And finally, they are discussing eliminating the diversity visa lottery, which allows 50,000 slots for people to apply to emigrate to the USA, and giving those slots to immigrants already in the US with protected status, including those from El Salvador and Haiti whose protected status was eliminated.
Former DACA recipients whose grant expired before that date cannot request a renewal, but they can file a new request, the agency said.
"However, we caution against introducing unrelated, unnecessary, or controversial elements of immigration policy - especially those that jeopardize the sanctity of families or unaccompanied children - into the bipartisan search for a just and humane solution for the 'Dreamers, '" he said.
While she's hopeful, she's also fearful of an unpredictable future.
"It really means a lot to me because I feel like I'm making a statement, 'We are here to stay, '" Azua said.
Judge William Alsup ruling in five separate cases on Tuesday requires the Trump administration maintain the DACA program as the lawsuits progress through the courts. That's the program that protects young people in the country who were brought to the U.S.as children. The president gave Congress until March 5 to pass new legislation.
Renewal applications will, however, only be accepted from people who previously received DACA and whose deferred action had expired on or after September 5, 2016.

It did not specify what any retaliation might involve. "The American administration has failed to undermine the nuclear deal". Two EU diplomats said EU foreign ministers would discuss next steps at their next regular meeting on January 22 in Brussels.
Similarly, the diversity lottery was not eliminated, as some are seeking, but instead shifted its 50,000 annual visas to other immigrant groups, namely Salvadorans and others who must leave the country as Trump ends their temporary protected status. That's because roughly 22,000 eligible DACA recipients were unable to successfully renew their DACA, some due to Hurricanes Irma and Harvey which affected hard-hit Texas and Florida.
Ramirez is a USA citizen now but grew up in the shadow of the wall between Tijuana and San Diego.
These Tampa Bay women say they will continue taking action for the more than 33,000 Dreamers in Florida - until a solution is made.
With Democrats threatening a government shutdown this month unless there is a resolution, the legal issue is likely to be tied up in court, according to Prerna Lal, a staff attorney at the East Bay Community Law Center who provides legal services through UC Berkeley's Undocumented Student Program.
Schumer said the judge's ruling "is no guarantee of lasting security" because the judge could be overruled later by a higher court. "We just have to get it done", he said.
"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".
He said the US bishops "believe in measures that improve the security of our nation. We can not wait", said Sen. "There's no other bill".
Trump gave Congress six months to find a way to allow immigrant approved for the DACA program to remain in the USA permanently.
