Democratic leaders to dine with Trump

UC offers guidance to DACA recipients

Trump and his aides sent some confusing messages Thursday, but it appeared that he is open to some kind of agreement awarding legal status to DACA recipients - a move King described as "amnesty".

"He says one thing and then five minutes later he changes his mind - there's multiple examples of that", Arias said. A feeling of defeat changed to hope for almost 7,600 Wisconsin residents who would be impacted after Trump met with democrats about a proposal that would allow them to stay. Deportations are not scheduled to begin for six months from that date, a lag meant to let Congress make the final decision of whether or not to keep DACA.

A 2011 Public Policy Institute of California report said that Monterey and San Benito counties tied for the highest percentage of undocumented residents per county in California. In July, I introduced the most recent version of the Dream Act with my friend Lindsey Graham, Republican of SC.

"That's an important position because we can not make a 2,200 mile (3,540 km) wall a condition for passing the Dream Act and we've been very clear from the start", said Senator Dick Durbin, a senior Democrat who has been working for the past 16 years to legislate protections for the Dreamers.

KELLY: Richard, might another way to look at this be that the president does keep saying he wants to help DREAMers?

This program could be fashioned after the Peace Corps or AmeriCorps and should be called "The Wall Builders". Here's another DREAMer. She's 25 years old.

Their announcement ignited a raging firestorm among immigration hard-liners - with lawmakers and pundits slamming the president on social media, conservative websites like Breitbart and cable news.

Shortly after Trump took office, the attorneys general of 10 Republican states, led by Texas, threatened to sue the president if he did not reverse DACA by September 5. And they also don't want a deal in which their DACA status is a tradeoff for enhanced border security.

CASTRO: Well, I think that, you know, the idea of amnesty from 1986 was kind of a blanket allowance of people to stay with no conditions. "They can't obstruct the wall", he said. The president was not invited, which I gather is unusual. She told VOA, "It's not just one group of people that's affected by this, it really is communities across the country - Africans, AAPIs, Latinos".

Watch the full interview with CBN's Heather Sells and Alan Cross following the president's decision on DACA. She led a news conference on Tuesday outside the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, D.C.

CASTRO: You know, I've said before that on any controversial issue, you tend to get four or five different answers from the White House depending on who you talk to.
