Down on Dreamers? Teachers' union targets Fla. GOP members of Congress

First, address Dreamers, the undocumented immigrants brought to this country as children. "We are a nation of immigrants; it's what makes us strong". If someone's DACA expired on or after September 5, 2016, that person may file a renewal request, the agency says; people who received DACA that expired before then can file a new DACA request. "We are now working to build support for that deal in Congress", wrote Durbin, Graham, Republicans Jeff Flake and Cory Gardner and Democrats Michael Bennet and Bob Menendez.

President Donald Trump called the USA courts system "broken and unfair" on Wednesday, the morning after a federal judge's ruling ordered the administration to restart a program that shields young immigrants in the country illegally from deportation.

He tweeted, "I want a merit based system of immigration and people who will help take our country to the next level".

A bipartisan group of Republican and Democratic senators working to find a compromise to coincide with a looming spending bill vote on January 19, announced Thursday they had reached a tentative agreement on an immigration bill that addresses several issues, including border security and allowing young undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S.as children, known as "Dreamers", to permanently legalize their status.

A group of Republican lawmakers unveiled Wednesday a bill that pairs granting legal status to younger illegal immigrants with a laundry list of conservative immigration reforms and border security enhancements, including President Donald Trump's proposed border wall.

When it came to talk of extending protections for Haitians, Durbin said Trump replied: "We don't need more Haitians'". Officials had said it would take a few days for test results to be completed.

A Justice Department spokesman was widely quoted in the press saying that the agency will continue to "vigorously defend" its position that DACA was "was an unlawful circumvention of Congress" and that the government "acted within its lawful authority in deciding to wind down DACA in an orderly manner". What will the end of the deferred action program mean?

The federal agency posted a statement to its website announcing the resumption of applications for DACA renewals. No new applications will be accepted.

Then on Thursday, a bipartisan group of senators presented the president with an agreement on new legislation for immigrants brought to the USA illegally as children.

The program that has given her the opportunity to work and go to school legally in the United States was reinstated.

U.S. Rep. Vicente Gonzalez, D-McAllen, a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, said he was concerned the ruling Tuesday night might give those in negotiations an excuse to slow things down, given there's been a delay to the program's end.
