Trump says dreamers should 'rest easy'

"This is more evidence that the Trump administration is making almost every person who's undocumented a priority for removal", said Ali Noorani, executive director of the National Immigration Forum, a group that advocates for immigrants in the U.S.

"We will immediately terminate President Obama's two illegal executive amnesties, in which he defied federal law and the constitution to give amnesty to approximately 5 million illegal immigrants", Trump said during a speech in Phoenix in August.

Speaking of the Iranians, Trump said: "They are not living up to the spirit of the agreement, I can tell you that, : although he didn't mention any specific violations".

In February, Trump told reporters, "DACA is a very, very hard subject for me", and he has since mentioned that he plans to deal with the issue with "great heart".

"Just telling me that he loves me and wants me to rest easy doesn't make me be able to be any more safe or more secure in my home, or tell my mother that everything is going to be OK", Martinez said.

Juan Escalante is a 28-year-old who was brought to the USA from Venezuela at age 11.

While Trump has been telegraphing this shifting position on "Dreamers" since he assumed the presidency, he sang an entirely different tune when he was candidate Trump.

President Donald Trump says businesses and individuals will receive a "massive tax cut" under a tax reform package he plans to unveil next week.

Few, both a coaching and card-playing buddy of Williams, might be tempted to give Ol' Roy a call and ask him how he did it. The Tar Heels turned the extra possession into an inside hoop from Isaiah Hicks that made it 68-65 with 26 seconds left.

Obama's administrative program offered a reprieve from deportation to those immigrants in the country illegally who could prove they arrived before they were 16, had been in the United States for several years and had not committed a crime since being here.

He would not provide details but asserted the cuts for Americans would be "bigger, I believe, than any tax cut ever".

Trump spoke with the AP ahead of his 100th day in office. It mimicked versions of the so-called DREAM Act, which would have provided legal status for young immigrants but was never passed by Congress. As of December, about 770,000 young immigrants had been approved for the program.

The president said he spent his first 100 days laying the "foundation" for progress later.

While disparaging the nuclear deal and accusing Iran of fomenting violence and terrorism throughout the Middle East, Trump has avoided committing to abandoning the agreement, a move that would be staunchly opposed by US businesses and European allies.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Mr Assange's arrest was a priority for the Justice Department as it steps up efforts to prosecute people who leak classified information.

"This is a president who is saying, 'I love dreamers and I care about them as children, ' and yet is turning around and traumatizing them and their families", she said.

During the campaign, Mr Trump and his allies publicly delighted in WikiLeaks' release of stolen emails from a top adviser to Democrat rival Hillary Clinton.
