Trump to nix Obama-era amnesty for Dreamers

Trump to nix Obama-era amnesty for Dreamers”

A senior administration official told Fox News that Trump will live up to his campaign pledge to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, but he could allow some of those affected to remain in the USA for the duration of their work permits - a duration that could be as long for some as two years.

The program, also known as DACA, was formed through executive order by Obama in 2012 and allows for certain people who came to the US illegally as minors to be protected from immediate deportation.

But attorneys general in Texas and nine other conservative states have threatened legal action if the Trump administration doesn't rescind DACA by Tuesday. "As long as I am governor, Minnesota will stand by the commitments we have made to them".

The economic data cited by Bush is based on claims made by the open-borders, cheap-labor CATO Institute, the Democrats' Center for American Progress and Mark Zuckerberg's FWD.us, which has been derided by opponents as the "billionaires' liberation front". Instead, he said, the president would be wise to let the deadline pass, and call on Congress to approve legislation protecting those covered by the program. Ending DACA would "disrupt the lives of so many people".

Many demonstrators criticized Trump as a demagogue who has unfairly portrayed undocumented immigrants as criminals and inherently suspicious. They have said any other decision will be seen as racist.

"This is earth shattering for so many affected by it", she said after hearing the report.

President Trump is reportedly considering a repeal of "DACA", the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

In his op-ed, Reif notes that he himself is an immigrant - a native of Venezuela who came to the U.S.as a graduate student in 1974, and has since become a US citizen.

During the campaign, Trump pledged to abolish the program, but in office has softened his tone, telling those under the program in April they could "rest easy". So allowing them to stay in place. Sadly, despite constant promises and reassurances that "they shouldn't worry" from Trump and his administration during the election, each of these 800,000 children are likely about to be stabbed in the back and face deportation.

Borovska said if DACA is scrapped, many Dreamers will leave their traditional jobs and form their own businesses to work as independent contractors. In total, if DACA is revoked, almost 700,000 [illegal immigrant] individuals who are now employed and contributing as a productive part of the American workforce would be stripped of their ability to work and could be fired over the course of the next two years.

"While I'm anxious, we're going to keep fighting", said Ms. Alvarez, who hopes to attend law school one day.
