Trump admin resumes accepting DACA renewals

Trump admin resumes accepting DACA renewals

"No more Lotteries! #AMERICA FIRST", he said.

Trump said in a second tweet Sunday that he wanted more aggressive measures in any deal: "I, as President, want people coming into our Country who are going to help us become strong and great again, people coming in through a system based on MERIT". He also wants immigration based more on merit, with rules tightened that allow USA citizens and residents to bring in relatives overseas.

Trump has expressed support for legislation to allow DREAMers to stay in the USA but wants it linked to funding a wall on the border with Mexico.

"I, as President, want people coming into our country who are going to help us become strong and great again, people coming in through a system based on MERIT", Mr. Trump said in a tweet.

And President Trump tweeted on Wednesday, "It just shows everyone how broken and unfair our Court System is when the opposing side in a case (such as DACA) always runs to the 9th Circuit and nearly always wins before being reversed by higher courts".

President Donald Trump's administration said Saturday that it will continue accepting renewal requests for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, a decision that comes shortly after a federal court last week temporarily blocked the administration's move to formally end the program.

But that agreement was cast into doubt the same day when a firestorm erupted after reports surfaced that President Trump, during a meeting with lawmakers over an immigration bill, asked why the USA was accepting immigrants from "shithole countries" referring reportedly to immigrants from Haiti and Africa.

"In the course of his comments (Mr. Trump) said things that were hate-filled, vile and racist".

"I am telling you that he did not use that word".

Love, whose parents are from Haiti, had criticized Trump for his remarks and called on him to apologize.

"I heard that account before the account even went public", he said on "This Week".

Perdue and Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., had issued a joint statement Friday saying they "do not recall the President saying those comments specifically". "But what we have to do is not let that define this moment", said Republican Senator Cory Gardner on CBS's "Face the Nation" program.

Nielsen did dispute, however, Trump's assertion that DACA was "probably dead".

The president sought to shift from the defensive by portraying Democrats as not truly interested in an immigration deal. Trump later declared "the language used by me at the DACA meeting [Thursday] was tough, but this was not the language used".

"The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards".

Sen. Michael Bennet, D-Colo., defended the agreement as a "principled compromise" on NBC's "Meet the Press" and said, "I hope people will explore it".
