DHS mulling deadline extension for Dreams to reapply for DACA

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY left and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California speak on Capitol Hill in Washington

President Donald Trump began winding down the program on September 5, announcing that Congress would have six months to pass legislation that would save the program.

"A re-elect in 2020 would be very hard for the President if amnesty goes with DACA and if a wall is not at least under robust construction by then", King said on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront", referring to a reported deal on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that Democrats signaled Trump made with them Wednesday.

Judge Garaufis' statement was not a court order, but it was a potent hint of his position toward the decision to rescind DACA, a matter that arrived in his court last week when immigration lawyers filed a federal complaint saying that ending the program was an "arbitrary, capricious" move "based upon animus toward Latinos".

But asked about Perdue's bill, Pelosi said Democrats were not interested in a comprehensive immigration measure, but one focused on the DACA issue. He's vice chair of the Congressional, Hispanic Caucus and he joins us from his district in San Antonio.

JOAQUIN CASTRO: Thanks for having me, Scott. "So you have got to deal with that". "It sounds like I had an old jalopy and I was going to buy you a new vehicle and now I will overhaul the jalopy". But the meeting was a positive sign. He said during the next two years, with the repeal of DACA, these workers will be subject to rolling deportations.

"Who's fighting for them?" said Barletta, who is hoping to capitalize on the anti-illegal immigration sentiment that allowed Trump to win the state.

Then the President spoke for himself. We urge consumers to Be wary of email, social media messages, phone calls, or other unsolicited sales pitches for legal services, especially if use scare tactics are used as a tactic to frighten you into action. We don't control the Senate or the House, so we are the minority party.

Trump emphasized today that "the wall will come later".

CASTRO: Yeah, I'm concerned.

The last I checked, presidents aren't allowed to bulldoze over the U.S. Constitution and rewrite laws simply because they disagree with them. "I encourage my colleagues to do what's right for these young people who are Americans and who have only known the United States to be their home".

SIMON: Should they have amnesty?

Meanwhile, talk of a deal could put hardliners like Barletta in the hard position of deciding whether to support a deal struck by a president who won his state, even if it incurs the wrath of conservatives opposed to any compromise over young illegal immigrants. I think that's what people think of as amnesty.

Still, the border wall could become a sticking point, along with a path to citizenship. Some of these folks came here when they were 2 years old and didn't realize that they were undocumented until they tried to get a driver's license or apply to college, for example.

Trump kicked off the internal - yet public - debate as he left the White House for a trip to Florida to inspect damage wrought by Hurricane Irma. The president was not invited, which I gather is unusual. "We're not looking at amnesty", he said.

On Thursday morning, the president tweeted that unauthorized immigrants enrolled in the DACA program "have been in our country for many years through no fault of their own".
