San Jose Sues President Trump over DACA Rollback

Texas Governor Rick Perry is deploying 1,000 Texas National Guard troops to the Texas Mexico border to boost security during a surge in illegal immigration by children

A USA judge on Thursday repeatedly pressed the Trump administration to extend an October deadline for some immigrants to reapply for a program that shielded children brought to the United States illegally by their parents from deportation. Trump and Attorney Gen. Jeff Sessions last week announced a plan to stop taking new applications and end it in six months, but said those whose two-year permits expire by March would have until October 5 to extend them.

"There's only one thing that cracks President Trump's base, and that's if he cracks on immigration", the Iowa Republican said in an interview. In the first such tweet from his @realDonaldTrump account, the president wrote, "No deal was made last night on DACA".

"Renewal of your DACA status may be your only opportunity to obtain an additional two years of deportation protection and legal work authorization", White stated.

The President says that it's up to Congress to fix this, and he gave us six months to do it. Congress now has an urgent and closing window to right this wrong and prevent a humanitarian and economic catastrophe for these young people, their families, their communities, and for our country.

I am not going to argue whether it would be just to deport illegal immigrants who came here as children. Yes, that's a possible scenario, one among many that to me all lead back to my previous paragraph.

President Trump is actively discussing a deal with Congress that would both allow dreamers to stay permanently, and fund his signature campaign promise of building a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, CNN reported on Thursday.

CASTRO: Well, I think that, you know, the idea of amnesty from 1986 was kind of a blanket allowance of people to stay with no conditions. "If March 5th, they have nothing, then President Trump has said, 'We will look March 5th.' If nothing has happened with Congress, he will look at this again".

Garaufis, who's scheduled to hear the DACA suit against the Trump administration brought by Eric Schneiderman and 15 other attorneys general, also said that he'd prefer to see the issue hammered out in the legislature rather than by a judge.

DACA allows undocumented residents brought as children to the U.S.to avoid deportation.

Steve King, a Republican congressman, said: "The Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond fix".
