Decision to block DACA termination sheds hope

But Alsup ruled that while the lawsuit is pending, anyone who had DACA status when the program was rescinded September 5 can renew it, officials said.

"If Trump doesn't win in three years, they're all out of business", he told reporters.

"There has not been a deal reached yet", said White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

A major bipartisan effort to resolve the fate of hundreds of thousands of young unauthorized immigrants was underway on Thursday, after a group of six Republican and Democratic senators said they reached an "agreement in principle" that was quickly shot down by the White House.

The Department of Homeland Security announced Saturday it would resume processing renewal applications for young undocumented immigrants seeking protection from deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA. "It's the only game in town".

Republicans controlling Congress have resisted combining immigration and the budget into one bill. Democrats have been willing to discuss changes to those programs, but aren't willing to go almost as far as people like Cotton or hardline White House advisers like Stephen Miller want.

If you asked him to name the statutory or constitutional authority that gives him the power to rescind DACA protections, he would not have the first clue what they are (to be clear, he nearly certainly does have such authority, but he has no idea why or how). "It's a bipartisan proposal which we've worked on for four months in the Senate, and I don't know what happens next".

Shortly after Flake's comments, a spokesman for Sen.

"There are scores of Republicans who have shifted their position to follow the president", said Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa. Bob Menendez and Michael Bennet. But after March 5, 2018, it's expected that many more immigrants facing a DACA expiration would have to quit their jobs and be afraid that federal immigration authorities could knock on their doors. With Trump's support, there should be more than enough Democratic and moderate Republican votes to get a Dream Act to his desk (even if some House progressives and conservatives buck their respective leaders).
