Late Tuesday night, U.S. District Judge William Alsup ordered a nationwide injunction ordering the renewal of the program.

"As a nation, we have a moral and humanitarian obligation to the 'Dreamers.' These young people have done nothing wrong. Their futures hang in the balance".

"This is a huge step forward", Becerra said at a morning news conference in Los Angeles.

There's talk on Capitol Hill of a deal to protect the people some immigration activists call "Dreamers".

"The story of these young well-known". That would put them ahead of people who have gone through the long legal process to enter this country. He then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met yesterday.

Without the President's buy-in, the work of the group can't reach the Senate floor, Republican leadership said. "The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", Trump tweeted.

Cotton said he's willing to support legal residence for the DACA recipients, with the right to eventually gain USA citizenship. DACA has allowed them to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and get a work permit.

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.

The White House had to then clarify Trump's comments by emphasizing that the president still opposes legislation that protects the 800,000 Dreamers now living in the United States if it doesn't include border security measures, such as funding for the border wall. On Tuesday, a federal judge ordered the Trump administration to reinstate the DACA program while legal challenges proceeds.

Trump seemed open to the idea at Tuesday's meeting, but he seemed open to a lot of ideas, many of them contradictory. "By any measure, these are the kind of young people that our country should be encouraging. These are good kids and we should want to help them to develop their God-given potentials. and to make their own contribution to the American dream".

Miles is regularly part of the second unit but was in Dwane Casey's starting lineup due to the absences of Lowry and Ibaka. However, he was infuriated by the lack of precision and drive in Thursday night's blowout loss to the Toronto Raptors .

Gonzalez, who came to the United States from Mexico when he was 9, worries the ruling could take the pressure off Congress to come up with legislation that offers permanent protection to Dreamers.

DACA has protected about 800,000 people who were brought to the US illegally as children or came with families who overstayed visas.

"Systematic reform of our immigration policy is absolutely vital to our nation's future".

LOU BARLETTA: We need to make sure that we're not going to have another 800,000 or million people coming into the country.

The Senate group has been working for months to craft legislation that would protect 700,000 children who were brought to the United States as illegal immigrants and later given protection from deportation under a programme known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.

Some legal experts predicted the Trump administration would be successful if it appealed the ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Washington Post-first reported-on Trump's comments in the Oval Office meeting, which the Post said "shocked" lawmakers in attendance.

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. Trump a year ago ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which provided protection from deportation and the ability to work legally in the country.

The bill, though, does not include numerous attributes desired by vocal dreamer activists.

Other administration officials remaininvolved in immigration, including Miller, Marc Short, director of legislative affairs and DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, according to the White House.
