Bishops 'encouraged' by consensus that DACA solution 'urgently needed'

But conservatives have been pressing him to stand behind their efforts to curtail new immigration.

Tom Jawetz, vice president of immigration policy for the Center For American Progress, defended the memo, arguing that it is more than a call for votes.

Durbin and Graham were told on Thursday that Trump would not agree to the deal.

"While delay or inaction will cause significant negative impact to businesses, hundreds of thousands of deserving young people across the country are counting on you to work in a bipartisan way to pass permanent legislative protection for dreamers without further delay", the letter said.

"It's very clear where [Trump's] intentions are", Jonathan Jayes-Green, Co-Founder and Director of the activist group Undocublack Network, said on a press call Friday. We don't need a wall where you have rivers and mountains and everything else protecting it. I want to stop the massive inflow of drugs. "Wall was not properly funded, Chain & Lottery were made worse and U.S. would be forced to take large numbers of people from high crime.", Trump tweeted. "This is why in this moment we don't lose focus to push back explicitly against the attack against the Black community...and people of color".

Mr Trump's plan to end the DACA programme (deferred action on childhood arrivals) which offers protection to undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children, was delivered a blow when a court in California ruled that safeguards must remain in place pending a legal challenge.

Trump announced in September that he meant to end the DACA program, which protects some 800,000 young illegal immigrants from deportation.


"Any solution has to include the wall because without the wall, it all doesn't work", Trump told reporters at the White House.

ROSE: The judge ordered the administration to allow DACA recipients to renew their status. But after March 5, 2018, it's expected that many more immigrants facing a DACA expiration would have to quit their jobs and be afraid that federal immigration authorities could knock on their doors.

"Dreamers' lives were thrown into chaos when the Trump administration tried to terminate the DACA program without obeying the law", California Attorney General Xavier Becerra (D) said in a statement.

Republicans have sought some form of funding for measures to curb illegal immigration as part of a deal.

"The ruling last night in no way diminishes the urgency" for a bipartisan bill protecting the so-called Dreamers, he said.

Democrats' insistence on passing an immigration bill by the funding deadline has raised concerns about the possibility of a government shutdown. And in that meeting, he completely contradicted his own position and that of the Republican leadership, saying that he wants to do DACA first and he would sign a "clean" bill to codify DACA before they get to a larger immigration package that would include a border wall.
