Senate votes to begin immigration debate

Trump's move to end DACA program blocked by second US judge

Many Democrats consider some of the proposals, including limiting the relatives that legal immigrants can bring to the US, to be non-starters.

The Senate overwhelmingly voted in favor of beginning the debate yesterday. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said "things change by the hour" on immigration, but he felt better as the day went on about the prospects of getting a bill passed.

A second federal judge has temporarily blocked the Trump administration to end the DACA program; which allows undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S.as children to remain in the country. They shouldn't be trying to dictate to us what we offer.

A judge made a similar decision last month, ordering the Trump administration to resume processing renewal applications for DACA recipients.

Rahimi also detonated a bomb at a charity 5K race in Seaside Park, N.J., earlier that morning - but no one was hurt. Rahimi's sentencing attorney Xavier Donaldson failed to sway the court with his proposed sentence of 180 months.

"It is time to create a merit-based immigration system that makes sense for a modern economy - selecting new arrivals based on their ability to support themselves financially and to make positive contributions to US society" US President Donald Trump was quoted as saying in a fact sheet released by the White House titled "Ending the economic harm caused by our immigration system".

Some media outlets erroneously reported that the ruling would require the Trump administration to accept new applications for DACA.

But the second injunction marks a win for Trump's opponents, who have used the courts to defend DACA, even as the White House has sought to use the March 5 deadline set by the president as leverage to win concessions on border security from Democrats in Congress.

Lawmakers now just a few weeks to solve an issue both highly complex and emotional.

New York Times reporters writing about immigration would like to hear from people whose families immigrated to the United States largely because of family-based immigration.

WHAT IT MEANS: McConnell is offering unlimited amendments in the Senate, which means there will likely be votes on everything from a pathway to citizenship to dramatic cuts to legal immigration. Nonetheless, a group of Republican senators on Sunday evening announced their intention to offer the president's framework as legislation during the immigration debate. Tom Cotton, R-Ark. He's also seeking $25 billion for security, including his proposed border wall, and would limit the relatives legal immigrants can bring to the U.S.

Isaiah Thomas to come off the bench vs Mavericks
Thomas has struggled this season after hip surgery in the summer and it's unclear how much he has left in the tank. He admitted he is only 75% healthy recently and did not fit in at all in Cleveland's system.

During court arguments, Garaufis said he couldn't ignore Trump's "recurring, redundant drumbeat of anti-Latino commentary" or put out of his mind how the commander-in-chief's words could factor into DACA's demise.
