Because of the Trump administration's ending of the program, 800,000 of these participants have now become eligible for deportation.
The program was created under the Obama Administration and aimed to protect young, undocumented immigrants, who were brought to the United States illegally, from deportation. Giving young people who violated the law - even if it was through no fault of their own - legal status would have "negative consequences", Cotton argues, opening up chain migration of low-skilled collateral relatives and incentivizing others to bring children in illegally.
"Neither I, nor the University of California, take the step of suing the federal government lightly, especially not the very agency that I led", says Napolitano.
Benefits Corzo said are necessary.
Only DACA recipients those whose work permits expire by March 5th of 2018 can renew them.
"Simply put, if we are to further our goal of strengthening the constitutional order and the rule of law in America, the Department of Justice can not defend this type of overreach", Sessions said.
"Rescinding DACA will cause harm to hundreds of thousands of the States' residents, injure State-run colleges and universities, upset the States' workplaces, damage the States' economies, hurt State-based companies, and disrupt the States' statutory and regulatory interests", the lawsuit stated.
"For all of those (DACA) that are concerned about your status during the 6 month period, you have nothing to worry about - No action!"
"If people in a democracy are afraid, it makes the democracy less stable". Multiple bills are pending in Congress to address the situation of young immigrants.
The Bridge Act, which Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., would provide DACA recipients with protection for three years. Now is the opportune moment, and we can not miss our chance to stand up for those in our communities.
"I'm anxious about losing the House now because of this", Bannon said. That shouldn't happen in a country built on the dreams of immigrants and others who proved their worth to America when given a chance. Not to mention, DACA beneficiaries had to pass strict background checks to keep their work permits. Of those surveyed for the study, 91.4 percent are employed.
It seems that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., fresh off an negotiated Oval Office victory on the debt ceiling on Wednesday, made a decision to wring another concession from President Donald Trump a day later.
On Tuesday night, President Trump tweeted that he will "revisit this issue" if Congress fails to legalize DACA within its six-month time frame.
It's pretty clear that the Democrats believe they have a winning issue with DACA.
Manchin is the only Democratic senator to stand by Trump on this matter.
"Democrats proudly stand by the 6,406 DACA beneficiaries in SC". "This decision is unacceptable and does not reflect who we are as Americans". "As soon as we know more about where things are changing, then we'll be able to work more closely with them".
