Trump calls United States court system 'unfair' after DACA ruling

A federal judge on Tuesday night ordered the Trump administration to revive part of the program that protected children illegally brought to the United States by their parents from being deported, calling the administration's abrupt decision to end the program past year "arbitrary" and "capricious".

That's his reaction after a trial-level federal judge in California temporarily blocked the administration from ending a program that protects certain young immigrants from deportation. In exchange, Trump and Republicans want toughened border protections and tightened restrictions on others trying to migrate to this country.

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

Trump's apparent concession so alarmed House majority leader Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, that he interjected himself, although he was careful only to gently contradict the president.

Earlier at the White House, President Trump met with lawmakers to discuss the DACA program and other immigration issues.

Ultimately, the meeting concluded with a two-phase solution that pairs a DACA bill with funds for the wall and punts comprehensive immigration reform to Congress at a later date.

On Wednesday morning, the White House e-mailed out a "correction" to the transcript that restored the missing words, though they still did not appear in the transcript posted on the official White House news page.

Trump, seated at a long table with some two dozen lawmakers from the House and Senate, presided over the bipartisan talks, allowing journalists rare access to almost an hour of the meeting.

A representative for the White House could not be reached immediately after the ruling.

Donohue's referring to immigrants who came to the United States illegally when they were children - and also to immigrants from countries affected by natural disaster or war, and now living in the US under temporary protection. That proposal has been strongly opposed by Democrats and many Republicans as a futile waste of money.

"I think a clean DACA bill, to me, is a DACA bill, but we take care of the 800,000 people ... but I think, to me, a clean bill is a bill of DACA, we take care of them, and we also take care of security", Trump said, according to Vox. He'd made similar statements a year ago, but this time it was in the context of negotiations for actual legislation. But one conservative foe of giving ground acknowledged the impact of Trump's support. He said while he helped head off a bipartisan immigration effort in 2013, "I don't want to promise the result will be the same".

But Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., who was not there and like Cuellar is a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, said he favored a narrow bill protecting Dreamers with perhaps something negotiable on border security.

People took out loans, enrolled in school and even made decisions about whether to get married and start families on the basis of DACA and now face "horrific" consequences from the loss of the program, said Jeffrey Davidson, an attorney for the University of California governing board.

"The president exhibited, I thought, quite a bit of flexibility when the cameras weren't there in terms of what we do in this phase and the next phase - and an acknowledgment that a lot of things we want to do are going to be part of a comprehensive bill but not now", said Sen. Some of the group's members have taken a hard line against surrendering too much in a compromise with Trump.

Conservatives quickly sounded alarms about a process that would lead to a comprehensive agreement on immigration, a path that has always been anathema to many rank-and-file Republicans. "Tonight's ruling is a huge step in the right direction".
