  • States Sue Trump Administration to Preserve DACA

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump said he's not sending mixed signals regarding his decision this week to end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, adding that ultimately he wants a solution "where everybody is happy". The lawsuit cited Trump's pardon of former Arizona sheriff Joe Arpaio, as well as his comments during the presidential campaign about Univision anchor Jorge Ramos and an Indiana judge of Mexican heritage, Gonzalo Curiel, who ruled on the class action lawsuits against Trump University.

The move to end DACA was announced by US Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday.

Our president, completely within his rights to reverse a prior executive order (lawsuits will be a waste of money), is actually trying to save the program by asking Congress to make it a matter of law.

Shapiro says 87 percent of Pennsylvania's DACA recipients are employed, bringing in an estimated $20 million in tax revenue to the Commonwealth. He had to overturn what President Obama did, because it wasn't constitutional or legal, but if Congress doesn't act, he will do that.

Trump met with House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., at about 11 the Oval Office.

The Trump administration has said those who are eligible for DACA - young undocumented immigrants without a criminal record - will not become priorities for deportation after the program begins to wind down in March. Congress needs to step up and, through well-constructed law, extend these young people the respect and opportunity they most certainly deserve.

"DACA grantees are the American dream", he said.

The president said there was wide consensus on Capitol Hill to address the issue, including among conservatives.
