  • DACA: Dreamers, families and allies protest program's end

He proposed loosening DACA's age restrictions, so that people who had arrived in the US as older teenagers or who had been too old to qualify for DACA in 2012 could apply for protection.

The remaining 200,000 Dreamers are a diverse group.

Alas, there is a different reason to see the still ongoing hysteria as a waste of time. Dreamers are not the Boogeyman. And many studies have found that immigrants to not commit crimes at a higher rate than nonimmigrants. Furthermore, applications already in the pipeline will be processed, as will renewal applications for those facing near-term expiration.

"We are a people of compassion and we are a people of law", he said.

I argued during the GOP nomination battle that Trump is a phony on immigration.

"Congress now has 6 months to legalize DACA (something the Obama Administration was unable to do)".

President Trump issued a statement on his decision calling for Congress to take action, but his remarks left unanswered questions over whether he would step in if lawmakers couldn't reach an agreement.

As President, my highest duty is to defend the American people and the Constitution of the United States of America.

Like Karen Reyes, a special education teacher who in an essay for this newspaper, said, "I grew up with your kids - and now I am teaching your kids". Tell that to the millions of aborted babies every year. DACA was an attempt to guarantee protection from deportation for some "low-priority" immigrants. "It was just so weird and insulting". But he wants credit for ending it - for being both against and for it.

La mobilisation n'a pu donc avoir lieu devant le siège du parlement comme le prescrivait le mot d'ordre de l'opposition. Il devrait porter surtout sur "l'examen du projet du budget de l'Assemblée nationale/gestion 2018 ".

Talking points distributed by the Trump administration on Tuesday urge DACA recipients to "prepare for and arrange their departure from the United States".

Consistent with this utterly inconsistent approach to DACA, nothing he has done as president makes sense.

Will the government target DACA recipients for deportation? And he announced a similar, but much larger, program called Deferred Action for Parents of Americans - which would give the same protections as DACA to immigrants whose children were US citizens or permanent residents. This is indeed bad news for many long-time immigrants who know no home other than the US.

The legislative branch, not the executive branch, writes these laws - this is the bedrock of our Constitutional system, which I took a solemn oath to preserve, protect, and defend.

Are they expected to deport themselves? Compromise is not a curse word. 'It is self-defeating - because they want to start new businesses, staff our labs, serve in our military, and otherwise contribute to the country we love.

Rather it is the members of Congress, all 535 of them, that I find in contempt for not doing their jobs.

The government "doesn't make us human", she said. But the bargain is never made because one side calculates that there is no reason to negotiate.

Trump has reconfirmed them in their intransigence. As the majority party, Republicans will receive the lion's share of the pressure to come through.
