Tillis: White House Meeting Important Step on DACA

SANAA ABRAR: It is completely unfair and honestly immoral to use the lives of DACA recipients and undocumented youth as bargaining chips for these anti-immigrant priorities. But Trump has seen little progress on either front, with Democrats in Congress refusing to greenlight funding for Trump's border wall and the Mexican President making clear Mexico would never fund Trump's proposed barrier.

Kelly, a retired four-star Marine general, previously served as the secretary of Homeland Security and commander of United States Southern Command, responsible for military operations in Central America, South America and the Caribbean. That clock is ticking.

And despite the president's opposition, Durbin said lawmakers still plan to vote on a plan reforming DACA next week. While this case plays out in the courts, there's another debate over DACA happening on Capitol Hill.

The program that has given her the opportunity to work and go to school legally in the United States was reinstated. The Justice Department had contended the program must end because its creation had circumvented Congress.

Unless Alsup's order is overturned by a higher court, former DACA recipients will now be eligible to submit renewal applications and the government will be required to "post reasonable public notice" that the program is once again active. Compared to the estimated 11 million illegal aliens in the country, the DACA amnesty is considered a relatively narrow focus in the grand scheme of things.

It's certainly a disarming new guise for White, who opens the track with throbs of unexpected, menacing synth. But what sets " Connected By Love " apart is its earnest in sentiment and overblown arrangements.

U.S. President Donald Trump gestures during a meeting on immigration with a bipartisan group of House and Senate members at the White House Jan. 9.

President Donald Trump and a bipartisan group from Congress met January 9 at the White House to discuss a measure to keep DACA and include Trump's demands for a border wall and other security measures.

"We're seeing business owners who have been here for 20 years having to be sent back to countries that they don't know", says Gomez. "We need permanent legislation". Why exactly? Why is that better than choosing people we most need, who are just as human and worthy of our sympathy as those less likely to confer benefits or who come from other places?

Earlier, Mr Trump had taken command of the White House meeting to coax Republican and Democratic lawmakers towards a compromise on the fate of Dreamers. Let the Dreamers stay and apply for citizenship like all the others who are applying must do; end chain migration; and finally change the lottery immigration system to one based on merit depending on what skills are most important to our changing economy.

ANN COULTER: This is a disaster. "And I think they need to listen to those voices.You have to have people from the border to address the border". Recently, however, he has positioned himself as cheerleader-in-chief for Dreamers, as in this September 14 tweet: "Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military?"
