Washington: A U.S. judge has ordered President Donald Trump to partially revive the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration policy, reports IANS.

'We need the wall for security.

The President himself commented on the judge's ruling on Wednesday, saying the court's decision "shows everyone how broken and unfair our Court System is".

Trump himself tried to dispel that notion with a weekend tweet declaring himself a "very stable genius".

In September, President Trump ordered the program come to an end but a federal judge temporarily halted that decision Tuesday night lifting the fear of deportation for now.

"Yeah, I would like - I would like to do that", Trump told Feinstein in response. She added that the issue should "go through the normal legislative process" and vowed that Trump "will work with members of both parties to reach a permanent solution".

House Republicans introduced their version of an immigration bill to address the so-called Dreamers while also providing border security.

The question did not explicitly deal with whether the wall had to accompany DACA, although a deal taking shape would combine border security and DACA.

To Trump supporters, this will look like nitpicking.

"The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used", Trump wrote in a tweet.

The proposal presented by the bipartisan Gang of Six was a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who came to the USA as children - beyond just those who were enrolled in DACA when it ended, according to lawmakers and sources familiar with the meeting.

Reports of his language that referred to people of color from other countries created a fire storm of criticism from both major parties and critics overseas who said they could not be described as anything but racist.

GOP congressional leaders proposed new legislation to overhaul the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, and reform the nation's immigration system. For that reason, a resolution to the DACA issue must be part of a global deal on the budget.

President Donald Trump's staffers weren't fooling anyone by scrubbing an important line from the transcript of Tuesday's immigration meeting.

"That's why there are negotiations going on that the president encouraged yesterday".

BECERRA: It is time for Congress to give us a lasting solution that will leave no doubt that the DREAMers are Americans and that they are here to stay. But so far, the proposal has not won key White House support.

"Hold up on that, because we need to see how USCIS will renew their procedure and if the administration is going to appeal and the likelihood is, yes", Aguayo stated.
