Ryan asks President Trump to hold off on scrapping DACA

Ryan asks President Trump to hold off on scrapping DACA”

"They're in jeopardy of losing those positions due to no longer being allowed to work in the United States", Garcia said.

They have already submitted to extensive background checks. "I pay my taxes". These young people deserve the assurance that they can live full lives without fear of being deported to countries they haven't set foot in for years.

Meanwhile, activists supporting DACA have been mounting a furious lobbying effort, operating phone banks, meeting with lawmakers, sending letters and staging protests to draw attention to the fate of what are undoubtedly the most sympathetic immigrants living in the country illegally. The economic impact of ending DACA equates to nearly 685,000 fewer workers and a loss of more than $460 billion from the national GDP.

Five years later, this group faces a new shadow of uncertainty.

"I'm able to work at a place I really enjoy, I was able to buy a house and contribute to my community", Luna said. At this point, you can probably dig through every awful campaign promise he's made, and you can figure out for yourself just what's going to happen next. After graduation from high school, she had hopes of enlisting into the Air Force. "That is going to have a major long-term implication for the economy", Bier said.

"Because it's temporary, because it was based on an executive action taken by President Obama, it's very vulnerable to a change", said Frank Sharry, executive director of the immigration advocacy group America's Voice.

Apple's Tim Cook, Amazon's Jeff Bezos, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, and hundreds of entrepreneurs and business leaders from across the country released an open letter calling on Trump to preserve DACA. Marriott International and Starbucks signed.

As the Trump administration continues to push a truly un-American agenda of discrimination and mass deportation, Congress must unite to protect DACA, its recipients, and their families. "It's the right thing to do for these hardworking young folks who are Americans in every sense except their immigration paperwork status".

The letter came the same day reports surfaced that Trump was set to phase out the program, which could lead to deportation for almost 800,000 DACA recipients, known as Dreamers.

Donald Trump's administration has been cracking down on immigration ever since he took office in January this year.

During his presidential campaign, Trump repeatedly promised to end DACA.

The U.S. government does not track DACA recipients by profession, and employers do not necessarily know whether an employee is in the program unless he or she voluntarily discloses it.

In a separate Facebook post on August 31, Zuckerberg wrote why he "stand [s] with the Dreamers".

"These young people entered our country as children and should have the opportunity to remain in our country to be educated here and to have opportunities to exercise their gifts for the enhancement of our nation".

"He's fully employed. He's done nothing wrong", Meredith said. They are software engineers, finance professionals, and retail and sales associates.

Ending the program would harm trust more than it would harm the American economy.

Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., tweeted her support for the DREAM act as a way to protect the immigrants at risk by the ending of the DACA.

Silicon Valley leaders have grown accustomed to challenging Trump's immigration policies, given the tech industries' large reliance on immigrant and foreign workers.
