Catholic leaders press for Dream Act as DACA deadline looms

EXPLAINER: What is DACA?

While it's true that President Obama did create DACA in 2012 through executive action, it was immigrant youth who courageously stood their ground and pressured Obama to establish the program. Orrin Hatch of Utah also supports the legislation, titled the Succeed Act.

President Trump's decision to repeal the DACA program (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) on September 5 is being met with stark criticism by the public, higher education institutions throughout Washington state and our very own president, James Gaudino, who penned an open letter the same day denouncing the USA president's actions and reiterating CWU as a campus which, first and foremost, promotes protection of its students as a state funded institution.

A companion bill is expected to be introduced in the Senate soon.

Whether they will actually be deported after that point is unclear.

This deadline to renew their status comes after the Trump administration recently announced the program's cancellation.

The report, prepared by the Center for Immigration Studies, examines the impact of "chain migration" since the early 1980s and projects how family-sponsored migration would boost numbers from the original amnesty of so-called "dreamers".

Immigration lawyers have filed a federal complaint saying that ending DACA was an "arbitrary, capricious" move "based upon animus toward Latinos", according to the New York Times. He's been living in the USA since he was six years old. "In the Succeed Act, a person would have to wait 15 years ..."

By a 72-to-19-percent margin, voters agreed with U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to work with Democratic lawmakers on legislation to protect Dreamers.

We know that Trump's immigration agents have already planned the largest immigration raids in American history and are becoming more emboldened every day that Congress does not act.

The new GOP proposal hasn't deterred congressional Democrats from pushing forward.

Democrats are waiting for the White House to publish a list of "principles" to guide Dreamer legislation. "Given Republican leaders' failure to bring it to the floor, a discharge petition is the appropriate step to ensure that this vital legislation gets a vote". "Democrats will not back down until Dreamers' future in our country is secured, and this discharge petition will advance this fight. We are ready to work with Republicans to get the bipartisan DREAM Act signed into law". House weighs tougher rules for banks dealing with North Korea MORE (R-Wis.) looked Angelica Villalobos, a DACA beneficiary, United We Dream member and mother of four in the eye and told her that she would be safe.

Although this bill has been proposed by the Republican party, there has been no action to implement this plan since their ism after his interview with the Associated Press contradicting his and his administration's decision to end the program. It would also increase the U.S. Border Patrol and Customs and Border Protection forces by 5,000 agents each. "It it an unconstitutional program, so that is constraining".

On Sept. 13, President Trump met with the two of the top Democrats in Congress: Nancy Pelosi of California, the minority leader in the House of Representatives, and Chuck Schumer of NY, the minority leader in the Senate. "But for some people they didn't reapply because they didn't have the money", said Gonzalez.

Pelosi and Schumer also said Trump accommodated their demand that the deal not include funding for his long-promised wall on the U.S. -Mexico border.

"I trust him on it", she said.

Lankford believes children of illegal immigrants can't be held responsible for being brought to America and said his plan allows them to become American citizens within 15 years.

DACA recipients are our friends, neighbors and classmates.

The Trump administration earlier this month announced a phaseout, saying all current two-year permits will be honored and those whose permits expire over the next six months can quickly apply for a new extension, but it must be in by October 5.
