The Trump administration's decision to end DACA was devastating to many and will directly impact millions of people - including at Rice.

And depending on the spin, it has nothing to do with the majority of immigrants.

He noted the past disappointments that occurred before former President Barack Obama implemented DACA in 2012. This bipartisan legislation would give a path to citizenship to Dreamers.

The upside, of course, is that Congress is on the case. Richard J. Durban, D-Ill., said regarding efforts.

Trump dined Wednesday night with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, the top Democrats on Capitol Hill, who said in a statement that they had gotten a potential agreement on making permanent protections for people who had received assurances under the DACA program. He pledged to not stop fighting for them. The National Korean American Service and Education Consortium is one of them. The faces have changed, explains the site, but the reasons haven't. But they didnt really take a stand in terms of their solidarity with DACA recipients.

Of the 130,000 Asian immigrants said to be eligible for the DACA program, relatively few have actually applied. He says it's an even greater issue facing the Church in America. They get the same media messages.

The move put the onus on Congress to address the almost 800,000 Dreamers now facing uncertainty about their status in a country that for many is the only one they have known. And they do this because somebody who could only dream about those aforementioned freedoms was forced to leave their entire world behind.

KELLY: Richard, might another way to look at this be that the president does keep saying he wants to help DREAMers?

And he's also characterizing DACA recipients in the most sympathetic terms possible - "good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs" who "have been in our country through many years for no fault of their own". So now he's going to have to do it in a way he assures this never happens again and we're not incentivizing people to do this in the future, but I never gotten the feeling from the president that he was gung-ho on kicking DREAMers out of the United States. But focusing only on Dreamers is a half measure that insults our overall American story.

While Congress grapples with the specifics of a replacement program, be it from a new bill or the original DREAM Act, undocumented childhood arrivals grapple with the extent to which they remain vocal about their immigration status.

This program could be fashioned after the Peace Corps or AmeriCorps and should be called "The Wall Builders".

Instead, Congress abrogated its responsibilities in favor of politics and did nothing.
