President Trump's DACA decision puts immigration fix in hands of Congress

President Trump's DACA decision puts immigration fix in hands of Congress

In their complaint, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of NY, the states claimed that rescinding DACA violated constitutional guarantees of due process and statutory administrative process mandates, resulting in economic hardships for the program's recipients and, by extension, the states where they reside.

Others argue DACA holders should move to the back of the line to gain lawful status. First, can Congress fix the problem?

"The coming Christmas has to be a Christmas of joy for all of us or none of us", he said.

Currently, there are 1.9 million potential participants in the DACA Program.

Of the more than 3,000 DACA recipients surveyed, 72.7 percent have a spouse, child or sibling who is an American citizen. According to a White House official, DACA recipients who lose their recognition will be treated "like any other person in the country illegally", suggesting they would be detained and deported.

"President Trump is courageously acting in accordance with the Constitution and living up to his campaign promise to follow the law".

In response to President Donald Trump's order to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, Senator Richard Blumenthal held an "emergency field hearing" on the impact of immigration policies on DREAMers and their families, in particular, regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program. With Trump's decision to rescind what Obama legalized five years ago, more than 800,000 DACA recipients, otherwise known as Dreamers, are now facing possible deportation.

On Thursday during Clubs Day, representatives for the Coalition for Undocumented Students and Allies, a resource listed by the Puente Program, said they were unwilling to be interviewed by The Current for this story.

"Over the coming months, I look forward to working with my colleagues on immigration reform, which should include taking a firmer stance against illegal immigration, while also simultaneously developing a plan that will address securing our border, our legal immigration system and Dreamers", Scott said in the release.

Trump issued his decision to end DACA - instituted as an executive action by President Barack Obama and, legal experts had said, likely to be overturned by a court challenge - with repeated reassurances that he would take no immediate action to enforce it and would give Congress six months to vote on a legislative fix. Trump's base is not so politically correct!

But now the clock is ticking for Congress to deal with this issue.

Donald Trump's former chief strategist said the president's request for Congress to legalize some people brought to the USA unlawfully as children could cost Republicans their majority in the House of Representatives in the 2018 mid-term elections.

How do we support them? From community colleges to some of the country's most selective institutions, higher ed leaders were defiant.

DACA individuals are not eligible for welfare or government benefits, and approximately 24 percent of those aged 25 and older have purchased homes and 6 percent have started their own businesses, the chamber said.
