Racism Seen by Judge as Perhaps Why Trump Axed `Dreamer' Policy

14 January, 2018, 16:04 | Author: Wade Massey

Almost 700,000 young people, known as Dreamers, were protected from deportation and allowed to work legally under the DACA program as of September 2017, Alsup's ruling said.

On the other hand, Sen Dick Durbin, the Illinois Democrat who was in the meeting, said that Trump did, in fact, use the word "shithole" to describe the countries. Sen.

A federal judge has temporarily paused the down-ticking timer on the DACA program following a White House bipartisan meeting on four primary migrant issues.

Graham and Durbin are leading efforts to codify protections for so-called "dreamers", immigrants who came to the United States illegally as children. "They're watching as Democrats are shifting the electorate in America, demographically speaking".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday that the immigration issue should "go through the normal legislative process" and pledged Trump "will work with members of both parties to reach a permanent solution".

Hardliners quickly rejected the Senate plan. "So we'll be talking to the White House about that and I hope we can move forward with that".

Trump a year ago ended the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Americans must face the fact that whatever else he is, whatever other agenda he carries, Trump harbors troubling racist sentiments that are jeopardizing the well-being of people of color, emboldening racists and, with his latest remarks, triggering worldwide alarm and disgust.

A spokesman for Durbin, Ben Marter, declined to confirm that an accord had been reached.

Trump sat down with senators and congressmen at the White House to discuss a proposed bipartisan deal that would limit immigrants from bringing family members into the country, and restrict the green card visa lottery in exchange for shielding hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation. It's not what I want. "I think people are attaching them in their minds as far as leverage is concerned, but they won't be technically attached as far as legislation is concerned". "Since then, President Trump has taken on two very different opposing positions".

In a tweet, Trump again took aim at the courts.

Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake is one of the more moderate Republicans on immigration. That's a phrase that's anathema to many in Trump's base, and it's not really clear what he means by it.

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

As part of any agreement about DACA, Trump has insisted that there be funding for a wall on the Southern border with Mexico, which many Democrats have opposed. "We've got to have DACA and some sensible border security".

Meadows acknowledged the divide Trump could cause in pushing for that kind of deal. Dianne Feinstein, he offered to sign a "clean" DACA extension while Congress worked out other aspects of immigration reform in separate legislation.

DACA is said to remain intact for current recipients following March 5, initially said to be the cut-off date for renewal.

"President Trump understands this is the issue that elected him. On the diversity lottery, it simply takes all those visas and gives them away to other people for no rhyme or reason, it doesn't just end the diversity lottery".

Conservative media hosts were livid over Trump's meeting with lawmakers Tuesday, saying he'd sold out them out on a top priority.

In Geneva, the United Nations human rights office said the "racist" remarks would incite xenophobia.

Bishop Vasquez said the bishops "stand ready to work" with Trump and Congress "in the coming days to help fashion a just solution that meets their needs, ensures our nation's safety and security, and sets the stage for the larger debate on immigration reform that is so urgently and desperately needed".
