Trump expected to announce end to Obama-era DACA, official says

01 September 2017

In an interview on June 30, South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson said that he would be open to extending the deadline past September 5 if it gave Congress more time to come up with a legislative fix, saying he supported the intent of DACA but not the mechanism by which the program was put in place. That is not an immediate problem for Silicon Valley, partly because few of the DACA illegals work in professionals sought by high-tech firms, according to a recent study backed by the CAP.

"I wish that this country realized the impact that immigrants have, and was able to provide them with a little bit of hope into creating those roots here, and actually considering the United States their country and a country that loves them back".

DACA has unlocked countless economic opportunities for the almost 800,000 young people across the United States, 200,000 of whom live in California. The policy was enacted in 2012 and President Obama sought to expand it in 2014, but was prevented by a lawsuit from 26 states. The presiding eight judges' deadlocked 4-4 vote failed to set precedence, leaving the original injunction in place.

Trump promised to terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, during the presidential campaign - but since taking office had left the door open to preserving parts of it.

Connecticut Students for a Dream has fought to raise awareness of the plight of DACA recipients. We recognize their enormous role in our communities and families and their contributions to our schools, workplaces, and shared prosperity as a nation.

But Mario H. Lopez, president of the conservative Hispanic Leadership Fund, which disagreed with the way the Obama administration implemented the policy, said there were no upsides to punishing people who were brought to the country through no fault of their own. Meanwhile, the Harvey catastrophe makes the optics of the decision even more brutal for the White House, Axios says.

Valadao also says deporting the DACA recipients could cost as much as $60 billion, and that money would be better spent on deporting undocumented immigrants who have committed crimes.

In late June, attorneys general from ten states threatened to sue the Trump Administration if it does not end DACA; twice that number wrote to encourage the administration to maintain and defend the initiative. "Our results imply that expanding deferred action, or providing more permanent protection, to the millions of unauthorized immigrant parents who do not meet the current DACA eligibility criteria could equally promote the well-being of their children".

In the op-ed, Reif calls upon Congress to pass legislation protecting the DREAMers, and asks Trump to allow Congress time to act.

The administration has continued to allow Dreamers to apply for the program and has even renewed their permits - at almost the rate of the Obama administration - which has angered some of his own supporters.
