NY to file lawsuit to protect DACA recipients

NY to file lawsuit to protect DACA recipients”

A coalition of 16 Democratic and nonpartisan state attorneys general filed suit in NY federal court on Wednesday to stop Trump's sunset of DACA - the Obama-era program that protected young undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children from being deported - and they say Trump's comments about Mexicans should be used against him.

The move gives Republican lawmakers who control Congress the opportunity to establish a permanent plan allowing undocumented immigrants who were brought to America as children to remain in the country legally.

Here is a breakdown of what is known and what remains unclear.

Attorney General Xavier Becerra, a Democrat, said Wednesday he is going ahead with his own lawsuit because one in four participants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program lives in California and the state will suffer the greatest harm from its termination. "The Dreamers are now left in a six-month limbo, during which Congress is supposed to pass comprehensive immigration reform, a feat they have been unable to achieve for a decade", he said.

What happens in six months?

President Trump even Tweeted on Tuesday that he would revisit the issue if Congress can not act.

Will Trump step in with a solution?

Several legislative proposals to put elements of DACA into law have been introduced in Congress.

And the voters are right: Our immigration laws and enforcement need to be fixed.

There have been no exceptions to the ruling announced.

And tell all the other DACA recipients who are only asking for a chance to achieve what you have achieved that they are gangbangers, as they strive to overcome the enormous difficulties imposed on them in their countries of origin, and by the racism, classism, xenophobia, and nativism imposed on them in their adopted country. If they were under 31, still in the US, completed high school, honourably discharged from the army, and more-or-less crime-free, they could apply for DACA status which would protect them from immediate removal, and qualify them for a study or work permit.

About 2,800 Iowa residents have been approved for the program, with another 3,100 having submitted applications as of March, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services data.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said that DACA recipients are "not a targeted priority".

"They are not targets - they are certainly not priority targets of this administration".

Are they expected to deport themselves?

An ultimate end to the program - where DACA recipients are not given amnesty -would result in a 700,000 job stimulus for American workers.

The missive came in a document obtained by ABC News that was provided to members of Congress in the aftermath of the Trump administration's decision.

Many Democrats and some Republicans, along with US business leaders, have strongly criticized Trump for overturning DACA, former President Barack Obama created by memorandum when Congress failed to act on immigration reform.

How will this impact the economy?

For instance, U.S. Sen.

"They came to this country as infants or small children".

The bipartisan BRIDGE Act would extend DACA for three years, continuing temporary relief from deportation and providing work authorization to young undocumented immigrants.
