DACA Recipients Can Apply For Renewal, Government Says

President Donald Trump has said a programme that protects immigrants who were brought to the United States illegally as children is "probably dead", casting a cloud over already tenuous negotiations just days before a deadline on a government funding deal that Democrats have tied to immigration.

"I think that would show real leadership", she said on CNN's State Of The Union on Sunday.

The debate over immigration policy became increasingly acrimonious after it was reported on Thursday that the president described immigrants from Haiti and Africa as coming from "shithole countries" in a private meeting with lawmakers.

"DACA is probably dead because the Democrats don't really want it, they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our Military", Trump tweeted.

U.S. President Donald Trump attends a signing ceremony for the Interdict Act into law, to provide Customs and Border Protection agents with the latest screening technology on the fight against the opioid crisis, in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington D.C., U.S., January 10, 2018. Lindsey Graham of SC, issued a statement that did not specifically confirm the words used but backed up Durbin's account.

"I'm telling you, he did not use that word", he said on ABC's "This Week" program.


Perdue had previously issued a joint statement with Sen. "But what we have to do is not let that define this moment", said Republican Senator Cory Gardner on CBS's "Face the Nation" program.

Citizenship and Immigration Services says it's resumed accepting requests to renew a grant of deferred action under the Obama-era program that shields from deportation young immigrants brought to the U.S.as children and who remain in the country illegally.

He said Senator Dick Durbin, a Democrat, and Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, were mistaken in indicating earlier that that was the case. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., another participant, saying that they did "not recall the President saying these comments specifically".

President Donald Trump says a program to protect immigrants brought into the USA illegally as children is "probably dead". But it has infuriated Democrats who see the comment as evidence of malicious intent in Trump's policymaking.

Trump's tweets came just hours after his administration resumed receiving renewal applications for "Dreamers" under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program following a federal court order blocking the administration from ending the program. The deal had included a pathway to citizenship for the "Dreamers" that would take up to 12 years, as well as $1.6 billion for border security, including Trump's promised wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

Echoing dozens of Democrats, Lewis said he would not vote for any government spending measure until the dreamer issue is settled.
