President Donald Trump met with a bipartisan group of senators Thursday, provocatively saying the United States should decline to admit immigrants from Haiti and African countries, or as he described them, "shithole countries".

On Tuesday evening, ahead of Alsup's ruling, in an instance of presidential brokering, Trump appealed to both parties to compromise on the fate of the Dreamers, while also insisting that on the need to build a wall along the border with Mexico.

When Trump chose to phase out DACA in September, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) argued that they were doing so because Obama had overstepped his authority in establishing the program.

The program protects almost 800,000 undocumented young people, or "dreamers", who came to America as children. The program is now set to expire on March 5.

The federal court judge wrote that public policy would be served by allowing dreamers to remain in the country while the judiciary hashes out whether the DACA program is legal.

"A court case is no guarantee of lasting security; a higher court can quickly overturn it", Schumer said on the Senate floor. "But [I] got great reviews by everybody", the president said before his first cabinet meeting of the year at the White House. "The iron is hot". "And we can't take one thing for granted".

"Any solution has to include the wall because without the wall, it all doesn't work", Trump told reporters at the White House. "It is within the power of the legislature to enact a permanent solution for the dreamers", said South Texas College of Law Houston Constitutional Law Professor Josh Blackman. "It also increases boots on the ground", limits immigrants from bringing family members into the country in the future, and ends the green card lottery system, he added. Democrats and many Republicans in Congress support legislation enshrining those protections.

The ruling by U.S. District Judge William Alsup says the Trump administration must continue to accept DACA renewal applications, despite the president's decision in September to end new and renewal applications and let the program expire on March 5. "That is big. And I hope the media recognizes that we can dispel this myth that we're going to create the Western Hemisphere equivalent of the Chinese wall". "We need the wall for stopping the flow of drugs coming in", Trump said at a news conference Wednesday.
