Gen. Xavier Becerra on Wednesday praised a ruling by a federal judge that blocks the Trump administration's decision to end protections for an estimated 700,000 young people who were brought to the United States illegally as children.

Donohue's referring to immigrants who came to the United States illegally when they were children - and also to immigrants from countries affected by natural disaster or war, and now living in the USA under temporary protection. Wall funding wasn't included in a stopgap year-end funding bill, nor was it ever considered when Democrats thought they'd struck a deal on DACA with Trump this fall. "It can go up quickly, it can go up effectively", Trump said.

Lawmakers could run into a problem though since Democrats may want to attach a legislative solution for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program for so-called "Dreamers" but President Trump has said recently he would only agree to such legislation only if it includes border wall funding.

"Lives are hanging in the balance, and we are getting the job done".

"If you only build a wall, only a 'wall, ' without using technology, individuals, drones, observations, etc., you're not going to secure the border", Sen.

On Friday, the Trump administration requested Congress spend $18 billion over the next 10 years to construct the wall.




"It's about expanding political power, especially for the Democrats". Appeals of decisions by that court are commonly handled by the 9 US Circuit Court of Appeals, which also reviews appeals of rulings by district courts in the US West, Hawaii and Guam.

Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the far-right Federation for American Immigration Reform, suggested Republicans would be safe at the ballot box if they voted for a DACA solution with border security provisions tacked on.

King said Trump should force Democrats to give in to stricter border security demands, or reap the consequences of failing to follow through on his campaign promises. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) on whether a border wall was a precondition for any DACA fix. "Now I'm more convinced that the courts will find that what Donald Trump and his administration did was not legal". Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Jon Tester of Montana, as well as Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar of Texas, who frequently votes with Republicans on immigration and border issues - a sign that the White House is looking to pick off as many Democrats as it can even if it can't work with the party's key negotiators.

Congressional leaders met with Trump at the White House last Thursday, but Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said the president's call for a wall to be part of the deal may have poisoned the well.

"To throw down a list from the hard, hard-line wing of the White House is not a very fortuitous or smart thing to do", he added.
