Trump rejects bipartisan immigration deal, denies controversial remark

Repealing DACA meant that about 800,000 immigrants who arrived in this country as children could be deported from their homes and separated from their families. Trump has terminated it but given lawmakers until March 5 to craft legislation reviving its protections.

President Donald Trump was once again undermined in court by his own tweets.

Saying the decision to kill it was improper, Judge William Alsup of Federal District Court in San Francisco wrote that the administration must "maintain the DACA program on a nationwide basis" as the legal challenge to the president's decision goes forward.

Alsup, who was nominated to the court by President Bill Clinton, scolded the DHS for having presented no analysis of the impact its order would have on the nearly 700,000 young people "who had come to rely on DACA to live and to work in this country". Let Congress decide which projects it wants to defund to build the wall, when/if we actually have an infrastructure bill. "The iron is hot". Sanaa Abrar manages policy and advocacy for United We Dream, one of the main outside groups advocating for a permanent DACA fix.

Texas Senator John Cornyn, the second ranking member of Senate Republicans, says he'd be surprised if an immigration deal can be completed by then.

Trump 'set to extend Iran sanctions relief'
Two EU diplomats said EU foreign ministers would discuss next steps at their next regular meeting on January 22 in Brussels . Mr Trump has strongly criticised the deal, which was reached during Barack Obama's presidency and helped end a long crisis.

Congress has until January 19th to pass a budget deal or the government will shut down. For that reason, a resolution to the DACA issue must be part of a global deal on the budget. Dick Durbin, a key negotiator in DACA talks who was present at the meeting, told reporters he had not seen a single news report about the President's words that was false. He even told Democratic leaders, on camera, that he would take the heat for that if necessary to get it done. It was just yesterday that President Trump hosted lawmakers from both parties at the White House and said he would sign any DACA bill that they sent him.

Also under consideration, according to congressional aides, is a plan to restructure the "diversity" immigrant visa program so that it no longer operates via a lottery system.

President Trump on Wednesday heaped praise on his televised White House sitdown on immigration and border security with a bipartisan group of two dozen members of the House and Senate the day before. Democrats and many Republicans in Congress support legislation enshrining those protections.

In a statement, White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders thanked the lawmakers on behalf of Trump and said the legislative proposal seeks to comply with the main priorities of the President for USA citizens.

"We need permanent legislative solution to DACA, not a drawn out legal fight, and this ruling ups the ante for Congress to act", said John Rowe, Exelon Chairman Emeritus and IBIC Co-Chair, "There is only one real path forward: either Congress will pass a legislative solution to DACA, or almost 800,000 DACA recipients will lose their ability to live and work legally in this country".
