cnn.com reports: A second federal judge Tuesday has temporarily blocked the Trump administration from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis of the US District Court for the Eastern District of New York ruled that DACA participants and states are likely to succeed in their challenge that the way President Donald Trump terminated the Obama-era program was arbitrary and capricious.
The Gop is giving the Democrats a fantastic compromise on DACA, but will the Democrats agree to meet in the middle?
The GOP are expected to introduce a bill tomorrow, granting a path to citizenship for 1.8 million DACA dreamers.
washingtonexaminer.com reports: A group of Republican senators will introduce legislation Monday would put about 1.8 million illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children by their parents on a path toward citizenship while spending $25 billion on border security.
Sens. Chuck Grassley, James Lankford, Joni Ernst, Tom Cotton, John Cornyn, Thom Tillis, and David Perdue are co-sponsoring the Secure and Succeed Act. The legislation follows a framework laid out by the White House for a deal on the people covered by, and eligible for, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.
“This legislation is a reasonable approach to shielding children illegally brought to our country through no fault of their own while also taking the meaningful steps to ensure nobody finds themselves in the same situation in the future,” Grassley said in a statement. “This is a rare opportunity to fix a real problem and protect the country in a thoughtful and compassionate way.”

DACA recipients threaten to leave America if no deal is reached
President Trump offered to provide a path to citizenship for 1.8 million 'Dreamers' -- only if he gets his wall. If Democrats and Republicans don't come up with a deal by March 6th, DACA recipients say they are prepared to leave the country.
Alex and Daniela Velez have come to peace with the difficult choice they will need to make if Congress doesn't reach a deal for those covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program by its March 5 deadline: They will leave the country.
"Alex and I are both over this [DACA situation]," said Daniela, who is 24 years old. "If DACA ends, I will leave with Alex. I will close my business, leave work and school."
Should Alex, who is 19, find herself unprotected, she said she is clear on what her plan will be. "I will leave. I will leave America as soon as possible," she said. "I want to be able to leave on my terms. I'm not going to be waiting for anyone to come for me."
