Since we kick off each Countdown with our frustration with DACA’s troubles, there was a glimmer of hope being reported yesterday that a bipartisan group of senators has reached a deal to save DACA, and protect those who are American in every way, except on paper. The deal was set to go to the White House to see if the administration is on board. But a few more “thoughts” oozed out of Trump’s Twitter feed this morning, affirming his (surprise, surprise!) opposition to the bipartisan deal. But there is also movement on the legal front, with California judge William Alsup temporarily blocking Trump’s plan to do away with DACA. But since SCOTUS already overturned a DACA-related order by judge Alsup last month, it’s not clear how far this legal obstacle to Trump’s efforts will go.
