Trump calls United States court system 'unfair' after DACA ruling

Congress has until March 5 to salvage the Obama-era program and protect an estimated 800,000 undocumented immigrants who grew up in the USA from deportation. Becerra said the ruling should bring immediate relief to those worrying about deportation.

The immigration talks at the White House are occurring as Trump and Congress face a January 19 deadline to reach agreement on US government spending through the end of September, after they already were forced three times to agree on temporary budget plans when they were unable to reach a longer-term deal.

"Seems to me that Democrats are holding that deal hostage for a DACA negotiation and we are meeting at the White House tomorrow on a bipartisan basis with the President to see what that might look like", said Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn.

The president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is calling on Congress to overhaul immigration laws so protect more than 1 million immigrants now allowed to work in the United States but are at risk of losing their status. "We are dealing with this problem today because Congress has failed to enforce our laws and secure our borders".

Those who seek permanent status would have to follow existing pathways, such as marrying a US citizen or having a company sponsor an immigrant visa.

"We want the wall", Trump said during a retreat with GOP leaders at Camp David last week.

President Donald Trump says the USA court system is - in his words - "broken and unfair".

A White House spokeswoman says a judge's ruling against the Trump administration involving a program that protects young immigrants is "outrageous".

Republicans and Democrats are set to meet with President Donald Trump on Tuesday about Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, the program that allows immigrants who came to the U.S.as children to work and live without fear of deportation.

"I really do believe Democrat and Republican, the people sitting in this room, really want to get something done", Trump said.

The same day, a U.S. District Court judge in San Francisco temporarily blocked Trump's decision to rescind DACA, saying the U.S. government must start accepting renewal applications again from current beneficiaries of the program.

The court's order doesn't change the administration's "position on the facts", the Justice Department said. In exchange, Trump and Republicans want toughened border protections and tightened restrictions on others trying to migrate to this country.

Meanwhile, Trump is slated to host a bipartisan group of lawmakers at the White House to discuss immigration policy on Tuesday.

Adding pressure: Republicans need Democratic votes by January 19 to prevent a federal shutdown.
