Federal judge blocks Trump's attempt to let DACA expire for current recipients

Federal judge blocks Trump's attempt to let DACA expire for current recipients”

"No more Lotteries! AMERICA FIRST".

In another tweet Sunday, Trump wrote: "I, as President, want people coming into our Country who are going to help us become strong and great again, people coming in through a system based on MERIT".

On Wednesday, he said a merit-based system will allow only people with "great track record" to enter the country. The deal had included a pathway to citizenship for the "Dreamers" that would take up to 12 years, as well as $1.6 billion for border security, including Trump's promised wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

Republicans are seeking an increase in military spending; Democrats want a DACA deal and a matching increase in nondefense funding.

But in a tweet storm Friday, Trump characterized the "so-called bipartisan DACA deal" as "a step backwards".

In a statement Saturday, the US Citizenship and Immigration Services said the DACA program will be operated "on the terms in place" before it was rescinded last September.

But that agreement was cast into doubt the same day when a firestorm erupted after reports surfaced that President Trump, during a meeting with lawmakers over an immigration bill, asked why the US was accepting immigrants from "shithole countries" referring reportedly to immigrants from Haiti and Africa.

Republican Senator Jeff Flake said Sunday he was told about the remarks by colleagues who attended the meeting, before the news reports emerged.

Helena Bonham Carter to play Princess Margaret in 'The Crown'
If you've watched Seasons 1 and 2 of Netflix's awesome series " The Crown ", you know we are saying goodbye to most of the cast. She even has a vague connection to the role, having played Queen Elizabeth II's mother in 2010's The King's Speech .

The sole Democratic participant in the Oval Office meeting, Senate Minority Whip Richard J. Durbin of IL, told reporters Friday that Trump had used the vulgar word "not just once but repeatedly" during the meeting.

"I'm telling you, he did not use that word", he said on ABC's "This Week" program.

After hearing Allsup's decision, the White House strongly condemned what some may say is judicial overreach.

Ben Marter, a spokesman for Durbin, tweeted a rebuke early Sunday: "Credibility is something that's built by being consistently honest over time", he said.

Republican Sens. Tom Cotton of Arkansas and David Perdue of Georgia, who were also in the meeting and have been close allies to the President on the issue of immigration, said in a statement that they didn't recall Trump making the derogatory comments, "but what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest".

In deciding to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the Trump administration had called it an egregious example of executive overreach.

A bipartisan group of Republican and Democratic senators have been working on a compromise, even announcing last week they had reached a tentative agreement on a bill that would include border security. Trump later declared "the language used by me at the DACA meeting [Thursday] was tough, but this was not the language used".

Among those present at the meeting were Sen.
