Victims ” stories in the center as Congress debates DACA
The legislature starts a week of open debate on the immigration reform than the families of the victims of illegal immigrants have to have their votes the Problem.
For the second time in as many months that a Federal judge has ruled that the Trump administration by the end of the Obama era DACA program next month.
U.S. district judge Nicholas Garaufis in New York ruled Tuesday that the state had a lawyer, Jeff Sessions, “were wrong in the conclusion that DACA is unconstitutional,” and granted a preliminary injunction, attorneys General, and the immigrants had sought, sued the administration.
The Ministry of justice had no immediate comment on Garaufis’ judgment.
Last month, U.S. district judge William Alsup in San Francisco ruled that DACA needs to remain in place while litigation around the program is in progress. The U.S. Supreme court is currently considering whether for the recording of the trump of the administrative appeal of the judgment.
The decision came down, as the debate in the Senate, fought on immigration reform to gain traction with Republican and Democratic leaders immediately at loggerheads over you to expand on how to move forward and President Donald Trump’s warning was the “last chance” protection measures “dreamer” immigrants.
Trump announced last September that he was at the end of the IF, or Deferred action for Childhood arrivals, program. The move was the Congress at 5. March deadline for the creation of a legislative replacement for the program, but was challenged almost immediately in court.
The White house has tried, increasing the resources for border security, including a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, in exchange for providing a path to citizenship for 1.8 million immigrants.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., the process began with a proposal, so the Republicans, to a change in the targeting of cities, the not fully with the Federal immigration authority, the so-called “sanctuary cities.” Then, Democrats would bring up the legislation of your choice. Amendments to gain 60 votes to a part of the broader immigration bill.
The Senate’s top Democrat Chuck Schumer of New York, objected quickly.
To would be “the beginning of the debate, as the Republican leader suggests, getting off on the wrong foot,” Schumer said. To be “very biased.”
Schumer wants includes McConnell to bring legislation, that a Trump priorities, and a second, much narrower bill by Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Chris Coons, D-Del.
His justification: The legislation Schumer wants to, as the population of young immigrants would, that the legislators of both parties say they want to help, rather than side issues such as dealing with the sanctuary cities.
McConnell replied: “I’m trying to dictate to you what you have to offer. You should not try to dictate what we have to offer. We should just get started.”
The contradiction means that there could be several hours before all the votes occur. A group of fashion gives lawmakers more time to 60 votes in the Senate to come up with a package that could generate.
But many Republicans insist that the bill is the inclusion of Trump’s priorities, a compromise.
“The president’s framework is not an opening bid in negotiations. It is a best and final offer,” said Sen. Tom cotton, R-Ark.
In a meeting with the sheriffs in the White house, Trump continues to be, the context of the debate in a way that shows that many of the illegal immigrants looking to enter the US as dangerous criminals.
“We ask Congress to support our immigration policy, terrorists, drug dealers, criminals and gang members from our country. We want you to be. We don’t want said, and now we are working on DACA, we are working on immigration bills and we make you hard,” Trump.
