The program allows undocumented immigrants who came to the USA as children to obtain a work permit.
Faced with criticism on both sides of the isle, Trump has managed to strike a deal with Democrats on DACA’s removal. Trump insisted he wants border security to be addressed in any agreement.
“I didn’t live a normal life until I got DACA”, said a speaker named Andreya, originally from Peru.
It therefore surprised many when U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that DACA was being rescinded within six months. “We’ll have to see whatever legislative compromise comes out”.
Notwithstanding the severe harm it will inflict, the government arbitrarily chose to break its promises to Plaintiffs and hundreds of thousands of other Dreamers by terminating the DACA program.
“We’re in this fight to win for the dreamers, when it’s easier and when it’s harder”, she told reporters later after a similar – but quieter – event in Sacramento.
Therefore, the plaintiffs are asking the support to temporarily suspend – before any damage results – Trump’s “illegal and unconstitutional” decision.
At the same time, Trump’s stance, if he sticks to it, could swing enough moderate Republicans’ votes in Congress to give dreamers a fighting chance at securing permanent protection from deportation and perhaps some form of legal status (though he ruled out citizenship).
The NILC represents a man from NY who is suing over the termination of DACA and Hincapié said the first hearing was promising with the judge showing a thorough understanding of the legal issues.
These young undocumented immigrants were illegally brought to America when they were children and, in some cases, babies. But he followed that up with another two asking, “Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military?” “So I trust the Legislature very much, I agree that they can get this done, but as an attorney, I place a reliance on the courts and I would be remiss if we didn’t do something like this”.
President Trump tweeted September 5 that he would revisit DACA in six months if Congress is unable to amend the Act.
Tom Wong, associate professor of political science at UC San Diego, who has conducted one of the largest studies on DACA recipients, said during the briefing that DACA recipients represent a highly-educated work-force, and could correct labor shortages in tech hubs in Northern California and Texas. We do not believe they should be disqualified from doing so because of acts they did not commit. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, as well as a variety of national Catholic groups, has repeatedly called for a solution that would allow the young migrants to stay and continue their lives in the U.S.
“Right after the election, I asked a customer if he needed help”, Ruben said. Cross says Christians must lead the way on this issue.
