Trump's DACA Bigotry Backfires As Democrats Vow To Attach The DREAM Act To Bills Until It Passes

First, a president can not pass off an issue to Congress when he wants to take no responsibility, and hope it goes well for those affected.

DACA was put into place by former president Barack Obama in 2012 as an executive order to help undocumented immigrants who had been brought to the United States illegally at a young age. They pay their taxes to be here, and contribute to our economy and diverse culture.

"For all of those (DACA) that are concerned about your status during the 6 month period, you have nothing to worry about - No action!" More than 800,000 young adults have been granted DACA since the start of the program.

The end of DACA means "nearly 6,500 young people are now living in fear of being deported", according to Benjamin Roth, assistant professor in the College of Social Work at the University of SC.

The President said his administration would not accept any new DACA applications from Tuesday onward and that any two-year DACA permits expiring after March 5, 2018, would not be renewed.

The lawsuit was filed in the Northern District of California against both the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its acting secretary, Elaine Duke, according to a press release from the UC Office of the President.

Trump has called the ending of the program an "amnesty-first approach".

Aaron Donald ends holdout, rejoins Rams
He has made the Pro Bowl in each of the previous three seasons, and has been named first-team All-Pro in 2015 and 2016. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Donald and the Rams have yet to agree to a new contract and will continue negotiations.

DACA now affects 800,000 young adults - 220,000 of whom reside in California. "It's about who we are as a people - and who we want to be".

Trump's administration decision to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is killing the dreams of many "DREAMers".

Finally, we must back the programs in our community that serve them, because they are needed now more than ever.

"As President Trump's statements about Mexico and those with Mexican roots show, the President has demonstrated a willingness to disparage Mexicans in a misguided attempt to secure support from his constituency, even when such impulses are impermissible motives for directing governmental policy", the coalition wrote.

"In the near term, we need to stay close to the students, understand where they are right now, what's changed in their status", Cartwright said. We will continue to take all necessary steps so that our students can pursue their educational goals here at F&M, including vigorously protecting the privacy of all our students to the extent that the law allows.
