Federal Judge Temporarily Stops DACA Repeal

Federal Judge Temporarily Stops DACA Repeal

A US judge in San Francisco temporarily barred President Donald Trump's administration on Tuesday from ending a program shielding young people brought to the United States illegally by their parents from deportation.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who also was at the meeting, said negotiators in Congress still faced difficulties but it was important that Trump had shown he had "no animosity toward the Dream Act kids" and the "wall is not going to be 2,220 miles wide".

O'Malley says the Department of Justice will continue the court fight.

Known as DACA for short, it protects young immigrants from deportation.

The immigration talks pit a president who made the construction of a border wall a central piece of his 2016 campaign against congressional Democrats who have sought to preserve the Obama-era protections for the young immigrants.

"DACA gave them a more tolerable set of choices, including joining the mainstream workforce", Alsup wrote.

The plaintiffs were likely to succeed in arguing that the government's decision to end DACA was arbitrary, Alsup ruled.

FILE PHOTO: Demonstrators protest in front of the White House after the Trump administration today scrapped the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), a program that protects from deportation nearly 800,000 young men and women who were brought into the U.S. illegally as children, in Washington, U.S., September 5, 2017.

Mark Rosenbaum, an attorney for Public Counsel, which represents six DACA recipients in the case, applauded the ruling. Our concern is rooted in our commitment to the Bible, which speaks repeatedly of God's love and concern for both immigrants and for children: these young immigrants who were brought to the United States as children - on average, at the age of six - are in a uniquely vulnerable situation.[We] believe that it is unjust to hold these young people responsible for decisions made by their parents. "And beyond that, they could move into additional scope", she said.

"They are in the military; they are studying in school; they are creating jobs".

"The government considered none of this at all when they chose to rescind DACA", he said at the hearing.

Roy Beck, president of Numbers USA, which backs stricter immigration laws, dismissed the significance of the court's action, calling it "an aberration that surely will not be allowed to stand as it is appealed".

The latest immigration negotiations are part of a broader series of talks over issues ranging from funding the federal government through next September to renewing a children's health insurance programme and giving USA territories and states additional aid for rebuilding after last year's hurricanes and wildfires.

Trump met lawmakers on Tuesday and said he would back a two-phased approach to overhauling USA immigration laws.

Democratic House Whip Steny Hoyer of Maryland said his party was opposed to GOP calls for $18 billion in funding to build the wall.

But he later said that if the first steps included the four areas outlined by the White House, "then I could support a two-step process realizing that step one is the only thing that is guaranteed".

Bannon's break with Trump has raised concerns among some conservative Republicans that the president might reach an agreement with Democrats on the Dreamers without getting enough in return.
