Judge blocks President Trump's decision on DACA

Judge blocks President Trump's decision on DACA

Posted:

Late last night, a judge temporarily blocked President Trump's decision to end the DACA program. The "deferred action for childhood arrivals" program  protects immigrants who arrived to the US as children from deportation. The move means the program will stay in effect for the time being, while lawsuits play out in the courts.

  
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump is suggesting that an immigration deal could be tackled in two phases - first by taking care of the so-called Dreamers and border security, then by making comprehensive reforms to the immigration system.
  
Trump on Tuesday held a lengthy meeting with a bipartisan group of lawmakers on immigration.
  
The president says he would need construction of a border security wall as part of an agreement involving young immigrants, but he says Congress could then pursue a comprehensive immigration overhaul in the second phase.
  
During a wide-ranging conversation with lawmakers, Trump stressed he needs funding for a border wall and changes to the immigration system.
  
He has said those are necessary for a deal to protect hundreds of thousands of young people who had been shielded from deportation.
