Protests, Vigils for DACA Recipients Grow as Government Shutdown Looms

"I think they talk about DACA, but they don't want to help the DACA people". "This means that the window of time available for sending in your DACA renewal is uncertain", the National Immigration Law Center said in a release over social media, urging those eligible "to apply immediately". His administration plans to seek Supreme Court approval to dismantle DACA.

They must defend 10 Senate seats in states won by Trump two years ago, in many cases by wide margins over Clinton. The U.S. Department of Justice has said it would appeal that order.

President Donald Trump said Sunday that a program that protects immigrants who were brought to the US illegally as children is "probably dead", casting a cloud over already tenuous negotiations just days before a deadline on a government funding deal that Democrats have tied to immigration.

The President's controversial comments to lawmakers in the Oval Office came after he held on-camera bipartisan talks at the White House last week in which he appeared open to making a deal with both Republicans and Democrats.

"I still think that he should apologize", she said on CNN's "State of the Union".

Trump drew global condemnation after reports emerged that he had questioned the value of taking immigrants from Africa and the Caribbean nation of Haiti during a closed-door meeting with lawmakers at the White House last Thursday, referring to them as "shithole" countries. The president gave Congress a deadline of six months - March 5 - before DACA recipients - known as Dreamers - would begin to lose their status, including relief from deportation, work authorization, and drivers' licenses. "If there's a shutdown in 2018, it will be because Republicans can not keep Donald Trump in line".

The HD Rumble feature in the Joy-Con controllers will cause vibrations that move the vehicle in the direction you choose. Nintendo has a new line of low-tech accessories for Switch and Joy-Con controllers, and it's all made of cardboard.

Trump has denied using that word. He said Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and Sen.

Graham said he is willing to continue speaking with the president about a potential deal, noting Trump has his phone number. During a meeting with the lawmakers, Trump reportedly called African nations "shithole countries" and questioned why the USA didn't favor letting more immigrants in from nations like Norway instead of countries like Haiti.

"Mr. President, close this [immigration] deal", Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of SC said at a Judiciary Committee hearing, adding, "Don't give my number out, but call me" - a reference to an incident in the campaign for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination in which Trump publicly announced Graham's private telephone number. Rand Paul, R-Ky., said people shouldn't draw conclusions that Trump is racist.

"Remember at one point when he said, 'Whatever you send me I'll sign, I'll take the political heat on this.' Well, we showed up Thursday with a bipartisan bill and presented it to him and it was a much different story". The measure will now be heard by the Senate Judiciary Committee. There were many pre-conditions the undocumented immigrants needed to meet in order to become enrolled in DACA, including having entered the USA before they were 16 (and be younger than 31), be enrolled in school, hold a degree, or be in the military, and having a clean criminal record.

GOP consultants are salivating over the possibility of mobilizing conservatives by accusing red-state Democrats of voting to shut down the government to grant "amnesty" to undocumented migrants. Yet through the weekend, Trump has inferred on Twitter that the conversation is over and Democrats are to blame.
