Blaming Democrats, Trump Says 'DACA Is Probably Dead'

Blaming Democrats, Trump Says 'DACA Is Probably Dead' Blaming Democrats, Trump Says 'DACA Is Probably Dead'

Congress has until midnight Friday to strike a deal on a host of thorny issues before government funding is set to run out, but talks appear to be at a standstill and a stopgap spending bill is looking more likely. It has protected around 800,000 young immigrants from deportation.

Pressure from immigration activists and increased public scrutiny could make it hard for Democrats to support a CR without a DACA replacement this time.

But the positions of Harris, Booker and Gillibrand, all seen as viable prospects for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, have reflected the passion of the broader Democratic base - which is young, diverse and overwhelmingly supportive of hard-line tactics against Trump and congressional Republicans.

The Trump administration was "out in front, advancing their agenda and they were basically getting away with it", said Frank Sharry of America's Voice, an immigrant rights group. Then, Trump said he was "not a racist" and that he was "the least racist person you will ever interview".

"I, as President, want people coming into our Country who are going to help us become strong and great again, people coming in through a system based on MERIT". Nielsen also said she hopes a DACA deal can be found. "There shouldn't be because if there is our military gets hurt very badly".

"We expect the emergence of another short-term extension" of federal funding authority to prevent a partial government shutdown and keep the government open into February, said analyst Ed Mills at financial firm Raymond James.

But this time around, Republicans might not have as much support from Democrats.

"I am optimistic that we can begin 2018 with a bipartisan, two-year funding agreement that meets several critically-important objectives", McConnell said at the beginning of the new year.

The divisive issue has been at the center of talks between Democrats and Republicans to avert a government shutdown this Friday.

While Republicans are calling for a boost in defense spending, Democrats insist that any military spending increase be matched by an equal increase in spending on domestic programs. He said he planned to discuss their concerns with Republican leaders.

I never molested my daughter: Woody Allen
Farrow alleged that she was molested when Allen visited her mother's CT home in August 1992, in the middle of a custody fight. Dylan said that she was inspired to come forward and do the interview because of the Time Up campaign.

House Speaker Paul Ryan said negotiators on both sides of the aisle are "making progress" on establishing spending caps, and downplayed the chances of a government shutdown.

"We will have to do something short-term", Ryan admitted last week during remarks at the University of Wisconsin-Milwuakee.

"The current direction of negotiations on immigration and spending is not encouraging conservative members to support that effort", Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., leader of the House Freedom Caucus, said in a text message Tuesday.

This smaller group of DREAMers is in the spotlight because Trump terminated DACA in September, claiming it was an illegal overreach of executive authority that can only come from Congress, which is negotiating with Trump on a compromise immigration plan.

"The Democrats want to shut down the Government over Amnesty for all and Border Security".

Terminating work permits for the approximately 33,000 Dreamers in Florida would cost the state's economy $1.5 billion a year, according to FWD.us, an advocacy group founded by technology industry leaders.

On Jan. 13, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services announced the agency would resume accepting renewal applications for those benefiting from the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA program. Even if it isn't, she said, Immigration and Customs Enforcement will not make deportation a priority.

House minority whip Steny Hoyer told reporters during a pen and pad briefing Tuesday afternoon that House Democrats have not made a decision on whether they will urge their conference to oppose the CR or not.

Republican Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas said Tuesday he supports a path to citizenship, but he opposes the deal because it does not sufficiently fund border security.

But a Supreme Court ruling could easily take months, and the Justice Department - in an unusual move - said it does not plan to ask the court to put the judge's ruling on hold.
