Trump blasts court system as 'broken,' 'unfair' after DACA ruling

President Trump is now negotiating with lawmakers over immigration reform, which includes his campaign promise of a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, while Democrats are pushing to protect immigrants under DACA.

Washington has until January 19 to enact a spending measure to avoid a government shutdown.

President Donald Trump is insisting that his "big beautiful" border wall be part of any deal to protect hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation.

Donohue's referring to immigrants who came to the United States illegally when they were children - and also to immigrants from countries affected by natural disaster or war, and now living in the US under temporary protection.

"If you only build a wall, only a 'wall, ' without using technology, individuals, drones, observations, etc., you're not going to secure the border", Sen.

"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 9 Circuit and nearly always wins before being reversed by higher courts", Trump tweeted Wednesday morning.

Lawmakers also consider him a more rational negotiating partner than White House senior adviser Stephen Miller, who has ruled on Trump immigration policy.

The goal of the White House meeting was to discuss how to reach an agreement between Democrats and Republicans, while still accomplishing the President's push for a wall along the United States border with Mexico and other changes to the USA immigration system - something Democrats widely oppose. "Brought to this country as children by undocumented parents or family members, they are not "illegal" through any fault of their own", Archbishop Gomez wrote. The Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which gave safe harbor to "Dreamers", formally ends March 5, although some immigrants have already started losing their protections.

"It's about expanding political power, especially for the Democrats".

"I really do believe Democrat and Republican, the people sitting in this room, really want to get something done", Trump said.

But despite that initial promise seen in Kelly, lawmakers have since felt a series of disheartening decisions has changed that calculus - including the decision to end DACA while he was chief of staff and a series of decisions to end Temporary Protected Status by the administration since - including reporting that he was involved in calling acting Secretary Elaine Duke and pressuring her on the Honduras TPS decision, which Duke later denied.

"We want to make sure that we have interior and border enforcement", he said. "Any solution has to include the wall, because without the wall, it all doesn't work".

Also, "we need to think more clearly about our labor needs in renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement", Archbishop Gomez said.

Then, Trump claimed, comprehensive immigration reform could be easy.
