Florida GOP governor wants to young immigrants to stay

The federal initiative is credited with allowing up to 800,000 people brought to the U.S. as children to remain and work in the country

Washington Free Beacon editor in chief Matthew Continetti was less confident than other panelists Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press" that Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program has support in the Republican Party, arguing "we might see the end of DACA in the coming months".

Ryan's statement echoes the sentiments of Republican leadership in the Senate, who chafed when President Obama went over their heads on the program but acknowledge there should be a mechanism for illegal immigrants to get jobs and not fear deportation.

Also known as the Dream Act, DACA stands for deferred action for childhood arrivals, that is to say immigrant children who were brought into the country illegally by their parents. We need to protect these neighbors, friends and family from those who do not recognize their value to our nation, state and communities. "I was so thankful because that was something that was I was always asking God please Lord give me the opportunity to be with my son", said Enriquez Perdomo.

Miami-Dade Schools Superintendent Alberto Carvalho said the students in his schools sing the National Anthem, say the Pledge of Allegiance, are loyal to their adopted country and "American in every way except on paper".

Congressman Soto is a co-sponsor for Rep. Joaquin Castro's DACA Amendment (H.R. 3354) which would prohibit any funds from being used to terminate the DACA program.

Trump is under pressure from attorneys general from several states to end the program by September 5.

"When American citizens are impacted by the devastating effects of ObamaCare we have a major storm [in Congress]", the former Secret Service agent and NYPD officer said. We must secure our borders and the federal government is irresponsible in not doing so.

He also pointed out that the rolling back of the programme could have significant economic consequences and that America would lose talent.

Exactly how the Trump Administration will handle the DACA program remains a mystery.

Though Trump has maintained an aggressive stance on undocumented immigration from the first days of his presidential candidacy over two years ago, at times he has appeared willing to consider leniency on the DACA policy.
