Statement Wednesday: Senate Members and Court Action

statement wednesday: Alsup said lawyers in favour of DACA clearly demonstrated that the young immigrants were likely to suffer serious, irreparable harm without court action, according to The Chronicle Herald. The judge also said the lawyers have a strong chance of succeeding at trial. U.S. District Judge William Alsup granted a request by California and other plaintiffs to prevent President Donald Trump from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program while their lawsuits play out in court. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement Wednesday that the ruling was outrageous, especially in light of the President's successful bipartisan meeting with House and Senate members at the White House on the same day. DACA has protected about 800,000 people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children or came with families who overstayed visas. Sanders said the issue should go through the normal legislative process and pledged Trump will work with members of both parties to reach a permanent solution. ( As reported in the news.
