"Why do we want all these people from Africa here?" We'll see if that changes the direction of things, which at this point, is in an absurdly muddled place. We must turn off the irresistible "jobs magnet" and ensure that immigration laws are effectively enforced within the U.S.
Late last week, they ostensibly got their reply: The White House sent the exact same document it had released in October, outlining an immigration "framework" that posited an overhaul of asylum laws, stepped-up interior enforcement, and a broad crackdown on legal immigration on the scale of the Trump-endorsed RAISE Act. Federal agencies will shut down unless lawmakers pass a bill financing them by January 19, and legislators are also trying to reach agreement on a budget deal financing government for the rest of this year. "So for those of you who have had DACA and need to renew it they will be accepting it", Yasser Sanchez, a Mesa immigration lawyer posted in a live Facebook video.
Angie Kim, an immigrants rights advocate and community organizer with MinKwon Center for Community Action, spoke with Radio Sputnik's Loud & Clear about the court's blocking of the phaseout of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and described Wednesday morning's immigration raid on 7-Eleven stores across the nation as "inhumane".
"There has not been a deal reached yet", said White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders. "We're pleased the bipartisan members are talking". Under the administrations plan, permits that expired after March 5 could not be renewed.
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.
Only one Democrat, Sen. Durbin is a member of the bipartisan group and an early proponent of legislation to shield those immigrants.
"There are scores of Republicans who have shifted their position to follow the president", said Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa.
"I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level".
"It's not even a fig leaf". Arizona RepublicanJeff Flake told reporters today it has happened.
What Senate Republicans think: There's no way Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer can keep the entire caucus together - especially those in tough 2018 races in Trump-friendly states - to oppose a short-term spending bill on DACA grounds.
He met with two dozen Republican and Democratic lawmakers Tuesday at the White House, urging them to craft a compromise that would accommodate the Dreamers but also achieve some immigration reforms.
The President hopes to advance towards legislation that ensures border security, ends chain migration, does away with the visa lottery programme and tackles the DACA issue in a responsible manner, she added. "We have to have the wall for security purposes". The pact also includes restrictions on immigrants' abilities to bring relatives to the US and termination of a visa lottery system that has helped gain entry for people from African and other diverse countries.
The program went into effect in 2012, and about 700,000 had active DACA protections in September, when the Trump administration announced its end.
It was the discussion about this provision that led to Trump's comments. First, a federal judge issued an injunction preventing the Trump administration from rescinding deferred deportation status from any of them pending a full trial on a legal challenge to that order.
Without the President's buy-in, the work of the group can't reach the Senate floor, Republican leadership said.
