In one area, this new GOP DACA bill runs directly against Mr. Trump's 2019 budget issued on Monday, which sought to eliminate the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program - that popular program funnels money to states to deal with the cost of holding illegal immigrants in prison.
Garaufis' ruling perhaps comes as no surprise after his lambasting of the President's "recurring, redundant drumbeat of anti-Latino commentary" last month.
Employers will be hurt as DACA recipients lose their jobs, Judge Garaufis added, "resulting in staggering adverse economic impacts" that could include up to $800 million in lost tax revenue.
You won't hear this stuff from the lying mainstream media.
Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis of the US District Court for the Eastern District of NY ruled that DACA participants and states are likely to succeed in their challenge that the way President Donald Trump terminated the Obama-era program was arbitrary and capricious.
Judge Garaufis called the Trump administration's push to repeal DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) under the premise that it's "unconstitutional" as "erroneous, ... arbitrary and capricious".
Stay tuned for more.
In addition, it will allocate $25 billion for tougher immigration enforcement including the construction of a wall along the US-Mexico border that Trump promised during his 2016 election campaign.
"The Democratic leadership: Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer have no clear message".
Garaufis said that an injunction would "preserve the status quo ... rather than allowing severe social dislocations to unfold based on an agency decision that ... strongly appears to have been arbitrary and capricious".
"I'm Christian, I love Jesus, but he thinks Jesus tells him to say things - I'm like, 'Jesus didn't say that.' Scary", she said. They shouldn't be trying to dictate to us what we offer.
Senators who have pushed for a debate on DACA have known the President is not likely to support a compromise in advance, but have hoped passing something by a wide margin could encourage him to get on board - which will be necessary for the House to act.
The disagreement means there could be several more hours of speeches before any votes occur.
Today's ruling just gives Congress more time to continue to ignore the issue.
"The president's framework is not an opening bid in negotiations". Tom Cotton, R-Ark. Many Democrats consider some of the proposals, including limiting the relatives that legal immigrants can bring to the USA, to be anathema. That decision might arrive within days, and in the meantime, Congress will keep on arguing.
