Trump tweets about DACA amid controversy over vulgarity

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

"No more Lotteries! #AMERICA FIRST", he said.

In another tweet Sunday, Trump 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".

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. 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.

"I think the president really is in the middle on this", Heitkamp told "Squawk Box", referring to the DACA issue.

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.

A bipartisan group of Republican and Democratic senators working to find a compromise to coincide with a looming spending bill vote on January 19, announced Thursday they had reached a tentative agreement on an immigration bill that addresses several issues, including border security and allowing young undocumented immigrants brought to the children, known as "Dreamers", to permanently legalize their status.

The deal hit a snag after reports Thursday that told lawmakers at a meeting on immigration at the that the US didn't need more immigrants from "sh-hole countries" like Haiti, El Salvador and several African countries.

"I can't defend the indefensible", said Mia Love, a Haitian-American congresswoman from Utah who campaigned on Trump's behalf in the country's Haitian community. The White House has not denied that Trump said the word "shithole", though Trump did push back on some depictions of the meeting.

The announcement comes days after a federal judge in California temporarily blocked the Trump administration's efforts to end DACA.

"We said it from the very beginning: Donald Trump and this administration did not follow the rules in trying to abandon the DACA program".

After hearing Allsup's decision, the White House strongly condemned what some may say is judicial overreach. "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. Dick Durbin, D-Ill.: "Republicans and Democrats negotiated in good faith to reach a deal that gives you what you asked for in front of the country on Tuesday".

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, who also attended Thursday's meeting at the Oval Office, said, "I don't recall that specific phrase being used".

"The so-called bipartisan DACA deal presented yesterday to myself and a group of Republican Senators and Congressmen was a big step backwards".
