By Washington Post | PUBLISHED: January 22, 2019 at 7:44 am | UPDATED: January 22, 2019 at 7:46 am By Robert Barnes | The Washington Post WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court is not likely to review during its current term the program that shields young undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children, leaving in place the Obama-era initiative that the Trump administration has tried to end. The justices on Tuesday took no action on the administration’s request that it review the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which has protected nearly 700,000 people brought to this country as children, commonly known as dreamers. If the court sticks to its normal procedures, that would mean that even if it accepts the case as a later date, it would not be argued until the new term starting in October, with a decision likely in 2020. DACA has emerged as an issue in the negotiations over ending the partial government shutdown, with President Donald Trump … [Read more...] about DACA program that protects young undocumented immigrants not likely to get Supreme Court review this term

But Bay Area voters aren’t as quick to back the country’s 11 million undocumented immigrants, who over the past several months have become targets of the Trump administration’s aggressive deportation policies. Meanwhile, 31 percent said undocumented immigrants have a negative impact on the Bay Area economy, while only 10 percent said the same of DACA recipients. About 36 percent said undocumented immigrants have a negative impact on quality of life in the Bay Area, compared with just 13 percent for Dreamers. The discrepancy tells the tale of two narratives: … [Read more...] about Bay Area strongly backs DACA, but still has reservations about undocumented immigrants, poll finds
white house President Donald Trump on Friday said that his administration is "strongly looking at" releasing detained undocumented immigrants into so-called sanctuary cities — contradicting a previous statement from the White House that the policy was no longer being considered. "Due to the fact that Democrats are unwilling to change our very dangerous immigration laws, we are indeed, as reported, giving strong considerations to placing Illegal Immigrants in Sanctuary Cities only," Trump wrote in a series of tweets. "The Radical Left always seems to have an Open Borders, Open Arms policy – so this should make them very happy!"Story Continued Below The Washington Post reported Thursday that Trump administration officials proposed last November and again in February transporting undocumented immigrants to cities that shield undocumented immigrants from deportation, including to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s district in San Francisco, to retaliate against the … [Read more...] about Trump threatens to send undocumented immigrants to sanctuary cities
Washington — If the House of Representatives passes the newly-unveiled "Dream Act" legislation to put millions of young undocumented immigrants and immigrants with temporary protections on a pathway to U.S. citizenship, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said he and Senate Democrats would "pressure" moderate Republican senators to break with President Trump's hardline immigration agenda and support the proposal. "Donald Trump is extremely anti-immigrant, and even though there are some Republicans who don't share that view — it's not enough. They never buckle," Schumer told reporters at the annual Senate Hispanic Task Force roundtable Wednesday. "Once the House passes the DREAMers bill, we're going to have to just constantly put pressure on the Republicans: 'Where are you? Where are you?'"By taking "the offensive" on immigration, Schumer is hoping to get some GOP senators who are usually weary of defying the White House and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to back … [Read more...] about Republicans will buck Trump on immigration if “they feel the heat,” Schumer says
