Congress must address immigration reform now — Letter

The Dream Act which is waiting for a vote in the Senate is different from DACA which only defers deportation for a certain period of time in that it allows Dreamers to receive permanent residency and citizenship

The Democratic critics had urged leaders to use their leverage in this month's fiscal fights to provide protection for those benefiting under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, an Obama-era initiative that Trump announced he was halting on Tuesday.

"There are some Democrats who feel that this is something we must do, also".

The lawyers note that most DACA recipients are of Mexican origin and devote a whole section to inflammatory statements Trump has made about Mexicans, including his attacks on a federal judge of Mexican descent.

This is the mess that the Congress, Bush, and Obama left for President Donald Trump.

The Department of Homeland Security says there are nearly 690,000 people in the program as of Tuesday.

They can initiate immediately a bill that legalizes DACA and removes the cloud of fear from nearly 800,000 contributing members of our American society.

The "Dreamers" are our kids!

"Immigration is the lifeblood of New York State", New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said in a statement. That six months is supposed to be enough time for Congress to pass legislation to keep DACA recipients here. It has been misused and is burdening the American citizen who has to pay for all this.

A number of New York-based Korean American organizations including the Association of Korean Residents in New York the Civil Rights Center and the Korean American Community Service Center held a joint press interview before they heading out to the stree

It was spearheaded by the attorney general of Texas. Mr Trump said in a post on Twitter. That may help the administration skirt a challenge based on the revocation of permits, as expirations were allowed for in the original implementation.

Even if Congress can't get its act together to pass comprehensive immigration reform, it can authorize DACA, which enjoys bipartisan support.

"I think the urgency is now", said Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-Ariz.), head of the Progressive Caucus.

Hanen determined that move needed formal rulemaking to be put in place. Now, supporters of DACA are poised to argue formal rulemaking is necessary to unwind the program. Who's expending some political capital? Agreed. And if this does happen, it will be because Trump forced Congress to do its job. "On the other hand, they do now have this precedent that establishing it requires APA procedure".

Republicans are wary of the backlash against the President's decision - and the possibility that it will prompt a greater Latino turnout in the November 2018 mid-term congressional elections, in which the Democratic Party will be trying to claw back seats in the House. He has stressed that "we are after the criminals".

There is already at least one lawsuit on the books against Trump's move: An undocumented immigrant and DACA recipient filed a suit on Tuesday, largely on the same grounds discussed by Legomsky and Yale-Loehr.

In total, 10 states in favor of an end to DACA - Alabama, Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Nebraska, Tennessee, Texas, South Carolina, and West Virginia - may stand to lose more than $8 billion annually in GDP.
