Steve King blasts Trump on immigration in series of tweets

As Breitbart Texas previously reported, a study by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg's open borders group, FWD.us, found that when DACA ends - so long as an amnesty is not passed through Congress - it will open up at least 720,000 U.S.jobs for American workers.

"Is this what I should spend my money on?"

"This administration's heartless, endless efforts to target and marginalise immigrant communities make the immediate passage of a clean DREAM Act all the more urgent", says Suman Raghunathan, executive director of SAALT.

The Trump administration is giving Congress six months to come up with a legislative fix before the government stops renewing permits for people who are already covered by the program. "King then topped that tweet with his own take, writing, "@RealDonaldTrump If AP is correct, Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond fix.

The program - Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA - is her lifeline in the US.

Federal officials granted 95 initial DACA applications to residents of ME as of the first quarter of 2017. The schools are vowing to fight back. Democrats have been adamant that they will not accept the wall in exchange for protections for "Dreamers", but have indicated support for border security enhancements short of a wall.

Meanwhile, immigrants are fearful of being sent back to countries they don't consider home.

"You never know what can happen under this administration". Congress now has an urgent and closing window to right this wrong and prevent this catastrophe for so many young people and their families and for their communities and our country. "These are the kind of things we need to do going forward to make sure we gain the benefit of their presence in the United States", said El Paso representative Beto O'Rourke (D). That political strategy predictably led to a 34-percent approval rating at the start of this month.

"More than ever, I feel attacked knowing that my life is in jeopardy at the moment", Batalla Vidal told rallygoers.

The 31-year-old San Jose resident was skeptical. She fears Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials might come knocking. DHS will not grant any new applications for advance parole (permits that allow DACA recipients to reenter the US after traveling abroad) associated with the DACA program and will administratively close any such pending applications.

An attorney for the Trump administration argued that they needed to institute a deadline to stave off a lawsuit from a number of Republican attorneys general around the country.

In response to Mr. Trump's executive order increasing immigration raids earlier this year, Open Society Institute-Baltimore worked with the Mayor's Office of Immigrant and Multicultural Affairs to launch Safe City Baltimore, a legal defense fund to ensure that Baltimore immigrants with a legal claim to stay in the US receive the representation they need to assert it. Communities around the country have launched similar efforts.

Wasn't it "cruel" that Obama waited until re-election time to create a temporary program like DACA to garner the Hispanic vote as Sen.

The University of IL at Chicago, which has hundreds of DACA students, has posted online instructions for students and security staff to call campus police immediately if anyone, including federal agents, comes on campus and starts asking questions. "We should care for them", Cross also said. The president was not invited, which I gather is unusual. Georgia bars in-state tuition rates for students without legal immigration status. And as I said in the room that night, I think people know why. "I also have to keep students safe and support their well-being".
