In a move that surprised no one but shocked many, President Trump and his administration turned the dream into a nightmare for those protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) by announcing that they will be rescinding the program.
Some of those unauthorized immigrants at the Shore are young DACA recipients who attend public schools and volunteer with local nonprofits, such as Freehold High School senior Yeimi Hernandez. "Employers should know as of today, the DACA program will end in six months".
The program's temporary nature was also something Trump administration officials noted when they announced an end to DACA. She shares her story in the video above. It's the connection of national kinship.
"We knew DACA wasn't a permanent solution from the beginning", says Jose Manuel Santoyo, a DACA beneficiary who was brought to the U.S. when he was 8 years old.
My family and I were granted U.S. visas through proper channels, but my grandfather passed away before we arrived and my grandmother died before we could get green cards. "If they had a sense of security previously, it was a bit false".
The Department of Justice responded to the lawsuit by citing Sessions' argument in Tuesday's news conference - that phasing out DACA preserves the rule of law. On top of the natural disasters he chose to take on the DACA illegal immigration issue and was forced to deal with a country that is out of money as we once again bumped into the debt ceiling which requires Congress to act so the country can borrow even more, adding to the $20 trillion we have already borrowed and have no plan in place to pay back.
There are about 800,000 in the U.S. They didn't choose to violate the law to come here; their parents did. Carla Provost, the acting Border Patrol chief, said 160 unaccompanied children who were arrested crossing the border since 2012 were suspected of having gang affiliations, including with the MS-13.
Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Arizona, tweeted after the Sessions announcement that legislation like DACA is Congress' responsibility. I pray you will conclude that the choice to remove the DACA Program should be reversed. The chief executive officer of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, termed it as a sad day for the United States since the victims were young people who had been encouraged to report themselves to the government but were now at risk of being punished for it. The institute does not carry data on the unauthorized immigrant population in Ocean County because it is believed to be so small.
Yet Schneiderman described the Trump administration's action as "discriminatory", and pointed out that "no court has ever struck down DACA".
In Monmouth County, 52 percent of the voters backed Trump over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Mullins said nearly half of all DACA students who go to college in East Texas stay in the area for work. We contribute billions to the overall U.S. gross domestic product.
Microsoft said it has at least 39 employees who are authorized to work through DACA.
"That is highly problematic and the opposite of the intent of this program", said Alvaro Bedoya, executive director of Georgetown Law's Center on Privacy and Technology. Those pages serve as an important resource as this situation continues to unfold. When the Congress failed to do its job and pass immigration legislation, he took it upon himself to implement the provisions that the Congress explicitly rejected.
Sessions also said that DACA "contributed to a wave of unaccompanied minors on the southern border that produced terrible humanitarian consequences". I am one of thousands of people registered in databases somewhere in the United States who now stand to be deported and ripped from our homes. While DACA recipients pay taxes, and purchase goods, they also heavily inflate the amount of low-skill workers in the job market.
After all, we know one thing about the modern Republican Party: The GOP desire to stick it to Democrats outweighs just about every other incentive available to conservatives.
