The media spin implied that Trump has a soft spot for the illegal aliens who, we're told, were brought to our country as children through no fault of their own. But what is DACA, and how does it affect Temple?
A majority of Republicans and Democrats alike have agreed that Dreamers should stay, as they boost our economy and are educated members of our society.
"They also complained that the Obama administration had systematically deported hundreds of thousands of people".
In order to qualify for DACA, individuals have to meet a number of requirements.
They love this country. This game by the left has continued even though the U.S. Supreme Court has repeatedly slapped down and reversed the liberal lower court rulings and held in favor of Trump, often unanimously. They embody the promise of America... of the American Dream... Those who have committed a felony or a serious misdemeanor are not eligible for DACA. Barbara Lee, D-Calif., and Jared Huffman, D-Calif., struggled to speak over chants of "all 11 million", a reference to the estimated total number of undocumented immigrants now in the country. "I don't think there is a good immigrant and a bad immigrant", said Valeria Suarez, an undocumented youth.
At the same time, Trump's stance, if he sticks to it, could swing enough moderate Republicans' votes in Congress to give dreamers a fighting chance at securing permanent protection from deportation and perhaps some form of legal status (though he ruled out citizenship). But there will be no new applications. Current DACA recipients have until October 5 to renew their applications.
An estimated total of 690,000 immigrants that are now shielded from deportation and have work permits under DACA face an uncertain future, according to statistics from the Department of Homeland Security.
The leader of California's state Senate, Democrat Kevin de Leon, suggested the comments made Feinstein complicit in what he called Trump's "reckless behavior". That question goes not so much to Democrats as to the Republican leadership. The deal did not include funding for a border wall. Now we'll have to shame him into doing the right thing.
McDonough also said the Rutgers Office of Federal Relations in Washington, D.C. has been working closely with education-heavyweights, the Association of American Universities and the Association of Public-American Federation of Teachers (AAUP-AFT) and land-grant universities. He cited Temple as being one of 700 colleges and universities whose presidents signed a statement of support for DACA. If DACA ends and Congress hasn't found a solution for Dreamers, these young people would lose their jobs. The announcement came following a meeting with the lawmakers on Wednesday.
The lawsuit claimed that the administration's decision violates the immigrants' rights to equal protection and due process.
The case on behalf of Garcia and other DACA recipients could be heard with two separately filed San Francisco DACA cases, one brought by the University of California and the other by a group of state attorneys general, led by California's Xavier Becerra. We have said to everyone - be very careful, report to us any deportations because they are telling us they are not happening. Pelosi declared to the liberal protesters, who can never be appeased. "That means supporting those students in whatever way possible that secures them being able to be here". "We believe in pushing people who say they're on our side, not those who are not".
"We're fully engaged", he said.
"I don't see the alliance with Democrats happening on a widespread basis", Brookings Institution Senior Fellow Darrell West told Xinhua. But why should Democrats compromise when they get what they want anyway?
