California Attorney General Xavier Becerra - joined by the attorneys general of Maine, Maryland, and Minnesota; the University of California; Santa Clara County; the city of San Jose; individual Dreamers and other plaintiffs - filed a lawsuit against the administration in September, arguing that ending the program caused irreparable harm to DACA recipients and the states in which they live.
Trump , seated at a long table with some two dozen lawmakers from the House and Senate, presided over the bipartisan talks, allowing journalists rare access to almost an hour of the meeting. "We need the wall for stopping the flow of drugs coming in", Trump said at a news conference Wednesday. Trump has terminated it but given lawmakers until March 5 to craft legislation reviving its protections.
"It just shows everyone how broken and unfair our Court System is when the opposing side in a case (such as DACA) always runs to the 9th Circuit and nearly always wins before being reversed by higher court", Trump wrote. Lal said the Department of Justice will likely file an emergency stay in court, which, if granted, would suspend the preliminary injunction.
"Yes because you have heard from [Senate Majority] Leader [Mitch] McConnell and [House] Speaker [Paul] Ryan who said they will put the bill onto the floor if the president agrees to it", said McCarthy. "The iron is hot".

We are told they are getting multiple calls but for right now, there is not much they can do until this goes into full effect.

The initiative also proposes to allot $30 billion for the construction of a controversial wall on the USA border with Mexico and do away with the visa lottery programme, which benefits citizens of countries who have a low number of immigrants to the US. It allows people brought to the USA illegally as children to stay. The President had a meeting here today with a number of members, both from the House and Senate, Republicans and Democrats, as a follow-up discussion on immigration. So eager were they to cover that up that they issued a fake transcript that did not include him saying he would vote for a clean DACA bill before a larger immigration package and the border wall (they later issued a more accurate one, after their censorship of the proceedings was reported). "President Trump is committed to the rule of law, and will work with members of both parties to reach a permanent solution that corrects the unconstitutional actions taken by the last administration". Cotton has a proposal that gets a Democrat. So we need to make sure we secure the borders.
Ramirez is a United States citizen now but grew up in the shadow of the wall between Tijuana and San Diego. He'd made similar statements past year, but this time it was in the context of negotiations for actual legislation.
