Calexico 'dreamer' sues feds after being deported
A 23-year-old man who may be the first “dreamer” to be deported under the Trump administration filed a lawsuit asking for information about his case. Since 2014, Juan Manuel Montes Bojorquez was legally able to live in the U.S. Under the DACA program. Ref. Source 9s.

A federal judge in California temporarily blocked the Trump administration's efforts to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
Judge William Alsup also said the administration must resume receiving DACA renewal applications.
But the ruling is limited -- the administration does not need to process applications for those who have never before received DACA protections, he said.
The Trump administration announced the move to draw down the program last September with a planned end for early March.

President Donald Trump again blamed Democrats on Sunday for the stall in talks over a potential immigration deal as the threat of a government shutdown looms this Friday.
"DACA is probably dead because the Democrats don't really want it, they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our Military," Trump tweeted Sunday morning.
In a second tweet a few minutes later, he 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. No more Lotteries! #AMERICA FIRST."
Trump's tweets came just hours after his administration resumed receiving renewal applications for "Dreamers" under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program following a federal court order blocking the administration from ending the program.
The program has protected undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children from being deported. The administration announced the end of DACA in September, with recipients beginning to lose their status in early March. Ref. CNN.
Trump administration will ask Supreme Court to reverse DACA ruling. The Trump administration is seeking a fast track to the Supreme Court in hopes of reversing a federal judge's order that it restart a popular program that has enabled young, undocumented immigrants to remain in the United States. The Justice Department announced Tuesday that it will appeal U.S District Judge William Alsup's decision both to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit and to the Supreme Court - an unusual move. It comes amid debate over the future of DACA and an impending government shutdown. Ref. USAToday.
The number of DREAMers is far greater than commonly known: 3.6 million, analysis of immigration figures shows. The huge number of DREAMers - undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. As children - is often overlooked. Why? Public attention has been focused on 800,000 mostly young DREAMers accepted into DACA, the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. A number so large raises the stakes for legislators in the dispute over whether to deport DREAMers, allow them to stay under prescribed conditions or provide them with a path to citizenship. Ref. USAToday.
I think that we need to get rid of all illegal immigrates. Does not matter if they were children or adults they came here illegally. IF we make an exception for the children then we are opening the door to make more exceptions for others and soon there will be soo many exceptions that we will not might as well have open borders and no citizenship at all. The United States was based on immigration and we are a melting pot of the people other countries through out the world did not want or did not get along with their government. This has made us very unique and I like the many cultural backgrounds that we have. But most of these people di this the legal way. I Have no issues on legal immigration but a big issue on illegal immigration. Calling them undocumented does not make them legal.
Supreme Court extends relief for 'Dreamers,' refuses to rule now on Trump immigration plan. The Supreme Court handed President Trump a significant defeat Monday, turning down the administration’s plea for a quick ruling on the president’s power to end special protections for so-called Dreamers.
