U.S. top court mulls whether to take up 'Dreamers' dispute

The U.S. Supreme Court on Friday discussed in private how to handle President Donald Trump's appeal of a judge's decision blocking his plan to end protections for young illegal immigrants dubbed "Dreamers," and the nine justices could announce as early as Tuesday whether they will take up the case. Trump's administration is appealing San Francisco-based U.S. District Judge William Alsup's Jan. 9 ruling that halted the president's order to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which protects from deportation young adults who came into country illegally as children and gives them work permits. U.S. lawmakers have been working to resolve the fate of the hundreds of thousands of young adults, mostly Hispanics, protected by the program, but legislation that would have done so failed in the Senate on Thursday.

Senate Fails To Advance Bipartisan Immigration Bill Amid Strong Trump Opposition

Added: 17.02.2018 9:01 | 0 views | 0 comments

A US Senate vote Thursday afternoon on immigration reform, including protections to prevent “Dreamers” from being deported, collapsed as the bipartisan bill seen as having the best chance at passage failed to get enough support to advance, The Los Angeles Times reported. The 54-45 vote doomed the bipartisan measure which President Donald Trump had threatened to veto. The measure needed 60 votes to overcome a filibuster. The measure shielded young immigrants in exchange for $25 billion in border security, the Times reported, because opponents said it did not include the curbs on legal immigration Trump sought. The Senate defeat likely leaves the fate of Dreamers in the hands of federal...

US Senate rejects immigration proposals, reform in peril

The US Senate blocked several immigration proposals Thursday including a bipartisan compromise opposed by President Donald Trump, dashing hopes that Congress will soon decide the fate of nearly two million migrants brought to the country illegally as children. Trump had threatened to veto the bipartisan deal, which would shield the young immigrants from deportation in exchange for $25 billion in border security, because it did not include the restrictions on legal immigration he has sought. The Senate's Republican leadership had set aside this week to reach an agreement on putting 1.8 million so-called "Dreamers" on a pathway to citizenship, boosting border security, and potentially tightening up existing regulations on immigration.
