After that, if there is no deal, Dreamers are in jeopardy - of deportation at some point and, of more immediate concern, the ability to work legally in the U.S. Trump welcomed Norway's Prime Minister Solberg to the White House on Wednesday; that might be why the Nordic country was on his mind. A December poll found that 57 per cent of Californians "strongly disapproved" of the President and only 30 per cent approved. "It's time for a call to action for all to stand against this barbarism, against this racism".

With so many federal policies going against California's wishes, senate leader Kevin de Leon said President Trump is waging a "war on California".

Trump scrapped an Obama-era programme that gave the 800,000 young immigrants legal protection, setting a March deadline for Congress to offer a fix - though it has been reinstated by a court, for now.

Graham has worked on the issue for years and knows the political consequences.

That led Durbin to introduce the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act for the first time in 2001. Working with a wide range of partners, they have adhered to globally accepted anti-corruption standards, developed innovative tools / approaches and carried out research to deepen the collective understanding of corruption and its many ugly facets.

Most Californian cities - most notably San Francisco and Los Angeles - have declared themselves as "sanctuary cities" which deliberately discourage co-operation with immigration officers.

Mr Trump has said sanctuary cities "breed crime" and he seized on the policy when an illegal Mexican immigrant shot dead 32-year-old woman Kate Steinle in San Francisco in 2015. The gunman had been deported from the US five times before the shooting.

"You have a state of California that wants to put politics ahead of public safety, ahead of offshore safety", he told Fox News.

"California better hold on tight". A lot more can still be done.

Trump's statement came in the context of a discussion of the fate of the visa lottery in a proposed DACA deal.

It is with a great sadness and weariness that we write these words. The President tweeted that the court system was "broken and unfair". "If he said it, he has to apologize, but if he did not say it, I think The Washington Post should apologize". I understand how powerful they are. That provision has been eliminated under the reforms, along with several other tax exemptions.

Countries across the world have slammed the alleged comments, while 54 African countries have demanded a "retraction and an apology" from the president.

California this month made headlines when it legalised the sale of recreational marijuana.

The conflict between the state and the federal levels of government has caused confusion - and no doubt harshed the buzz of stoners.

California has legalised marijuana, but the Trump administration disapproves.

The body has since issued a statement calling for the US leader to apologise for the remarks.

It's a boon for the resource industry and will no doubt help the President's aim to create more jobs, but environmentalists argue it will be destructive.
