The letter, signed by UC President Janet Napolitano and all 10 UC chancellors, strongly urges DACA recipients whose permits are set to expire between September 5, 2017, and March 5, 2018, to apply for a two-year renewal.

President Trump is inching closer to a deal with democrats that would protect 800,000 young immigrants from deportation. The first step and the best thing you can do is [educate yourself], support those people that you know are on DACA or have family or friends that are on DACA, and then if you can, join protests, send letters to your senator, make that extra effort to get the word out.

Rep. Adrian Smith, R-Neb., told the Associated Press that he doesn't fault Trump for reaching out to Democrats on immigration issues but said he's not ready to back a proposal to give legal protections to DACA recipients.

The 28-year-old is believed to have turned down several offers made by Arsenal and is likely to be seeking an exit. We won past year here [at the Emirates], we won in the FA Cup final, we won on penalties in the Charity Shield.

"We have to have the wall. if we don't have the wall we're doing nothing", the president said as he arrived in Florida to inspect damage from Hurricane Irma.

The deal also includes funding for some border security enhancements.

King said amnesty for DACA recipients would cost Trump with those people. DACA applicants had to be younger than 31 years old and prove they've continuously lived in the United States since June 15, 2007 and had arrived before the age of 16. "I think the president understands that he's going to have to work with the congressional majorities to get any kind of solution". "They come in on a visa", the senator added.

No. 12 LSU Is Getting Blown Out By Mississippi State
Mississippi State dominated LSU at the line of scrimmage on most plays and the Tigers looked undisciplined and overmatched. After running through Charleston Southern 49-0 in its first game, Mississippi State then crushed Louisiana Tech 57-21.

The Trump administration is giving Congress six months to come up with a legislative fix before the government stops renewing permits for people who are already covered by the program.

CASTRO: Well, I think that, you know, the idea of amnesty from 1986 was kind of a blanket allowance of people to stay with no conditions.

U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis, citing new tweets by Trump praising the so-called "dreamers" protected by the program, told a Justice Department lawyer he might intervene if the government doesn't extend an October 5 deadline for more than 150,000 of the 800,000 beneficiaries to reapply before the program expires. Though Sessions argued that the bill "essentially provided a legal status for recipients", the Obama Administration noted in 2016 that the bill simply redirected immigration enforcement elsewhere. Am I the only one who sees hypocrisy in the whole DACA issue? "I would have to go to a country I have not lived in", said Jiminez, whose parents brought him across the USA boarder from Oaxaca when he was 1.

Jurgen Klopp explains why he took Philippe Coutinho off against Burnley
You don't expect to come to Anfield and out-pass them, and we never planned for that, so the game plan isn't about keeping the ball.

Steve King, a Republican congressman, said: "The Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond fix".
