President Trump Tweets That DACA Is 'Probably Dead'

Federal Judge Relies on Presidential Tweets to Block DACA Phase Out and Prevent Job Losses

In a second tweet a few minutes later, he wrote: "I, as President, want people coming into our Country who are going to help us become strong and great again, people coming in through a system based on MERIT. No more Lotteries! #AMERICA FIRST", the president tweeted Sunday.

He said Democrats "don't really want [DACA]", but just want to take "desperately needed money away" from the military. Government funding expires midnight Friday without a deal in place, and some government functions will begin to go dark.

The comment drew immediate and intense backlash from lawmakers and world leaders alike, many of whom accused Trump of being a racist.

Trump's "shithole countries" remarks were confirmed by Senator Dick Durbin, a Democrat who attended the White House meeting, after it was reported by the Washington Post and other media.

After hearing Allsup's decision, the White House strongly condemned what some may say is judicial overreach.

Lawmakers are trying to combine some form of relief for DACA immigrants along with enhanced border security, including a wall along the Mexican border, sought by Trump. Trump's staunchest supporters consider any route to citizenship for the "Dreamers" amnesty for lawbreakers.

Critics accused Trump of racism for using the vulgarity and suggesting the United States should allow immigrants from European countries such as Norway, whose prime minister he met Wednesday. Some Democrats insist that the DACA question be addressed by then.

Titans' Marcus Mariota catches own deflected pass for touchdown
At the end of the Titans' opening drive of the second half, Mariota attempted pass on third-and-goal from the Chiefs' 6-yard line. The Titans drew to within a touchdown on a 35-yard run by Derrick Henry with 14:08 left in the fourth quarter.

Rep. Mia Love, R-Utah, the first black female Republican in Congress and the daughter of Haitian immigrants, denounced Trump's comments as racist and called on him to apologize.

"I still think that he should apologize", she said on CNN's "State of the Union".

David Perdue, Republicans who've been close allies to the President on the issue of immigration, were also in the meeting but issued a carefully worded statement after Trump tweeted Friday morning that the description of his remarks was not accurate. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., were mistaken in indicating earlier that that was the case.

"We do not recall the president saying these comments specifically, but what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest", the statement said. Cotton said Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation" that he "didn't hear" the vulgar word used. Trump later declared "the language used by me at the DACA meeting [Thursday] was tough, but this was not the language used".

Here's what to know about how a federal judge's decision over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program will affect and negotiations in Congress.

"I don't believe the Democrats really want to see a deal on DACA".

A bipartisan group of Republican and Democratic senators have been working on a compromise, even announcing last week they had reached a tentative agreement on a bill that would include border security.
