White House Says Judge's Temporary Block On Removing DACA Is 'Outrageous'

White House Says Judge's Temporary Block On Removing DACA Is 'Outrageous'

"An issue of this magnitude must go through the normal legislative process", Sanders said, adding: "President Trump is committed to the rule of law, and will work with members of both parties to reach a permanent solution that corrects the unconstitutional actions taken by the last administration". "We make a good deal on NAFTA, and, say, 'I'm going to take a small percentage of that money and it's going toward the wall.' Guess what?"

President Donald Trump on Friday denied describing certain nations as "sh-hole countries" during a meeting in which he rejected a bipartisan deal on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

President Trump wants Congress to spend $18-billion dollars on a border wall.

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", Trump wrote in a tweet.

The development comes as the White House and lawmakers are wrangling over immigration reform, with Democrats demanding protections for Dreamers.

President Donald Trump and a bipartisan group from Congress met January 9 at the White House to discuss a measure to keep DACA and include Trump's demands for a border wall and other security measures. Let Congress decide which projects it wants to defund to build the wall, when/if we actually have an infrastructure bill.

A federal court ruling, also issued Tuesday, benefits people already enrolled in the program, but it doesn't change the expiration date. Parents who illegally bring their children to the United States would not be eligible for citizen sponsorship by their children.

Florida man's latest worry: Killer herpes from wild monkeys
The researchers estimate that up to 30 percent of the scores of Florida's feral macaques may be actively excreting the virus. As many as 30 percent of the feral monkeys that are living in Florida are said to be infected with the risky herpes strain.

"I was at the White House talking about what I thought was a bipartisan proposal", Graham said following the meeting. "He's a fine and admirable general ... but we flat disagree on this".

Goodlatte's bill, even if it passes the House, would have a harder time clearing the Senate, where it would need support from at least nine Democrats.

"This doesn't mean that DACA is back in full effect", Carter said.

Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar, a Texas Republican, said he told Kelly, then DHS secretary, that someone can't just spend a few hours at the border and think they understand it.

However, he did not order the Trump administration to accept new applications from young people who had never registered in the DACA programme before.

Opinion writers Charles Lane, Molly Roberts, Jennifer Rubin and Dana Milbank talk about the chances of a DACA deal in this clip from the weekly news roundup "It's Only Thursday".
