Trump calls USA court docket system 'unfair' after DACA ruling

Marcelo Betti is an immigration lawyer in Traverse City who has worked with DACA recipients in northern MI. Trump a year ago ended the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Kevin Diaz, a Washington correspondent for the Houston Chronicle and San Antonio Express News, says the ruling still leaves plenty of questions about the future of DACA.

"For years, these young people have been living in and enriching the United States in many ways", Bishop Vasquez said in his statement.

"Any solution has to include the wall".

In the United States District Court document, Judge Alsup states in his remarks that he finds it odd that Trump is looking to end a program that he also seems to support.

"DACA covers a class of immigrants whose presence, seemingly all agree, pose the least, if any, threat and allows them to sign up for honest labor on the condition of continued good behaviour", Judge Alsup wrote in his order. "This has become an important program for DACA recipients and their families, for the employers who hire them, for our tax treasuries, and for our economy".

Overnight, a federal judge temporarily blocked the Trump administration action to end DACA.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra brought the lawsuit together with the attorneys general for Maine, Maryland and Minnesota, as well as the University of California, DACA recipients and others. He believes finding a fix for DACA should be up to lawmakers, not federal judges.

"DACA was implemented unilaterally after Congress declined to extend these benefits to this same group of illegal aliens". Critics, however, said Obama did not have the constitutional authority to grant that amnesty without an act of Congress. It also would dramatically boost border security and immigration enforcement.

A spokesman for the Justice Department, Devin O'Malley, said the ruling did not change the department's stance.

The House has unveiled an immigration bill one day after a lengthy meeting between lawmakers and the president. DACA protected young undocumented immigrants who came to the USA as children from deportation.

The news was largely welcomed on Capitol Hill, where some accuse Trump's controversial senior policy adviser Stephen Miller of standing in the way of a deal on immigration and others said they didn't know who to talk to about the contentious issue.

Deferred Action for Parents of Americans program was meant to keep the immigrant parents safe from deportation and provide them with a renewable work permit good for two years, but it was blocked by a federal judge after 26 states filed suit against the federal government and challenged the effort's legality.

No doubt better border security and a more logical guest worker visa program are essentials, but all these issues can be dealt with after Congress passes a budget, which is the real priority now.
