Alsup said lawyers in favor of DACA clearly demonstrated that the young immigrants were likely to suffer serious harm without court action, and that they have a strong chance of succeeding at trial.
For Trump and his administration, any bipartisan agreement must include funding for the so-called border wall between the US and Mexico.
So let the euphemism battle begin.
In September, Trump said he was scrapping the DACA program but delayed enforcement to give Congress six months - until March - to craft a lasting solution. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., told McClatchy.
That is, Trump needs Democrats to support this measure.
Democrats have been pushing for what Sen.
The president had to be reminded by House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy that bolstering border security must be part of any possible DACA deal. But Trump told the meeting he's happy to delay broader changes for another bill. And a lot of the things we're talking about on border security and some of the interior things have tradeoffs.
Hoyer said Trump himself mentioned fences and technology.
In describing the need for a wall, the president said it didn't need to be a "2,000-mile wall". "The president uses "wall" for border security. And if you wanted to go that final step, I think you should do it".
Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W. Trump said he was willing to be flexible in finding an agreement as Democrats warned that the lives of hundreds of thousands of immigrants hung in the balance. There's a good chance Miller will come through again for immigration hawks. Illinois Senator Dick Durbin said Democrats want to strike a deal quickly. "The Dreamers are in all the meetings". Democrats have threatened to risk a shutdown if they do not get a DACA extension, although they backed off from a similar threat in December.
The U.S. Congress has been trying and failing to pass a comprehensive immigration bill for more than a decade, most recently in 2013 when the Senate passed a bill that later died in the House of Representatives. "You are not that far away from comprehensive immigration reform".
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: There should be no reason for us not to get this done. "President Donald Trump is going to have to bless a deal, [and] that is a formidable challenge". In order to avoid a government shutdown in the coming days, Democrats say any bipartisan deal on federal spending must include a plan to help DACA recipients.
"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 behavior", Alsup wrote in his decision. Congress has until March 5 to salvage the Obama-era program and protect an estimated 800,000 undocumented immigrants who grew up in the USA from deportation.
No concrete DACA deal has been reached and anything can happen with the negotiations going forward.
DETROW: Trump and Democratic leaders say they're confident a deal is reachable.
Trump has been anything but clear on what he'll accept, even on his signature wall. "There are obviously differences, however, Mr. President, on how you affect that". Trump, he said, promised repeatedly on the campaign trail that Mexico would pay for the wall.
Trump responded, "I would like it. ..."
