Trump, Key Lawmakers Negotiating Immigration Policies

But it also includes a number of changes Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has said she needs to stop the new surge of illegal immigrants who have figured out how to game the current system. Becerra said the ruling should bring immediate relief to those worrying about deportation. "It should be a bill of love", Trump said.

Those who seek permanent status would have to follow existing pathways, such as marrying a US citizen or having a company sponsor an immigrant visa.

The district court ruling granted California Attorney General Xavier Becerra a preliminary injunction against the Trump administration over its September 5 decision to end the program, ramping up a heated debate over the fate of 800,000 young, undocumented immigrants.

"Seems to me that Democrats are holding that deal hostage for a DACA negotiation and we are meeting at the White House tomorrow on a bipartisan basis with the President to see what that might look like", said Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn.

"We want to make sure that we have interior and border enforcement", he said.

In a victory for Dreamers nationwide, a San Francisco judge on Tuesday blocked the Trump administration's rescinding of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, ordering the administration to resume accepting DACA applications as the underlying case continues in federal court.

The White House has since issued a correction that now includes Trump's words on the matter. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) asked Trump whether he would support a "clean DACA bill now with a commitment that we go into into a comprehensive immigration reform procedure", alluding to previous iterations of immigration legislation that offer a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants.

U.S. District Judge William Alsup on Tuesday granted a request by California and other plaintiffs to prevent Trump from ending the program while their lawsuits play out in court.

The development comes as the White House and lawmakers are wrangling over immigration reform, with Democrats demanding protections for Dreamers.

Republicans charge that Democrats have all but halted talks on spending caps until there is a resolution on DACA, which gives undocumented immigrants who came to the country as children a chance to stay, work or study in the U.S. without fear of deportation.

Adding pressure: Republicans need Democratic votes by January 19 to prevent a federal shutdown.

"And during their lifetime, leaders in Washington have not been able to reach an agreement to fix the broken immigration system that allowed them to enter in the first place".
