Trump's DACA Decision Puts Dreamers' Future In The Hands Of Congress

06 September, 2017, 13:44 | Author: Malcolm Fuller
  • DACA decision appears to shift to Congress but action tough

But it wasn't the President, it was Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Montana Sen. Jon Tester, the only sitting Democrat who voted against the DREAM Act in 2010, said in a statement Tuesday that "breaking a promise to these children - who are here through no fault of their own - is not the solution", and called for Congress to "provide a way forward for innocent kids".

"It seems this is somethings we can wrap our minds around and get done", Wester said.

"We are people of compassion, and we are people of law, but there is nothing compassionate about the failure to enforce immigration laws", he said, referring to DACA as an "unconstitutional exercise of authority by the executive branch".

Meanwhile civil rights organisations in NY have asked a federal judge to let them challenge Mr Trump's planned phase-out of the programme shielding young immigrants from deportation. But there was no hint of that from Sessions.

Under the envisioned Trump policy shift, Dreamers with valid work permits would be able to stay in the USA until their permits - which are issued for two-year periods - expired, the sources said.

He couldn't be more wrong.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday began dismantling the government program protecting hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who were brought into the country illegally as children.

Immigrant advocates, clergy and business leaders including the chief executives of Apple and Microsoft put intense pressure on Trump to maintain the program.

As a whole, they're making the most of their opportunity, the survey found.

Donald Trump orders Russian Federation to close San Francisco consulate
Department of State, said in a statement on Thursday that the move was to achieve parity in diplomatic missions. He also said Moscow would take over a summer villa used by USA embassy staff.

"He is delivering on that promise every day, and he has put forward serious proposals to Congress that would responsibly end illegal immigration, prevent visa overstays, remove risky criminals, protect American jobs and wages", she said.

Nonsense. Economic growth is lagging, not because of Dreamers keeping Americans out of jobs but because our workforce isn't adding enough young job-seekers. "The forgotten men & women will no longer be forgotten".

The Senate's No. 2 Republican, John Cornyn, said Republican leaders were preparing to attach a measure raising the USA debt ceiling - unpopular with conservatives - to the Harvey aid package when it arrives in the Senate, The Hill reported. The president of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce angrily resigned from the president's National Diversity Coalition.

Yet to Sessions, it was just a matter of respect for the rule of law.

Although Trump's decision will hit communities nationwide, in the wake of unprecedented rainfall and flooding, immigrant youth in Texas now face a triple-blow: losing DACA, Harvey's devastation and Texas's new law outlawing "sanctuary cities" that offer extra protections to undocumented immigrants, which is currently being challenged in court.

The move likely to impact 800,000 undocumented workers including more than 7,000 Indian-Americans.

"The Department of Justice can not defend this overreach", Sessions said.

House Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer jas written a letter to Speaker Paul Ryan today urging him to allow consideration of amendments to the omnibus appropriations bill on the Floor this week that would prohibit the use of taxpayer funding by the Administration for certain purposes. Thom Tillis of North Carolina, have expressed support for a continuation of the program. It is Trump who could, but has not, presented actual legislation to Congress. Since his inauguration in January, however, the president has strengthened and prioritized the country's deportation system, calling for the hiring of thousands more immigration and border agents.

"DACA recipients are brought to this country as children - they're our classmates, our colleagues, our service members, they've established their lives here and often have little or no connection to their country of origin", Sharuk said.
