Pennsylvania Joins Lawsuit Over Elimination Of DACA Program

Pennsylvania Joins Lawsuit Over Elimination Of DACA Program”

The lawsuit filed Wednesday says the Trump administration's decision to rescind the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was motivated by anti-Mexican bias.

On Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the DACA program will end in six months to give Congress time to find a legislative solution for the immigrants.

In late June, Breitbart Texas reported that a 10-state coalition led by the Texas attorney general sent a letter to the Trump Administration asking the Secretary of Homeland Security to phase out the DACA program.

"Ending DACA, whose participants are mostly of Mexican origin, is a culmination of President's Trump's oft-stated commitments - whether personally held, stated to appease some portion of his constituency, or some combination thereof - to punish and disparage people with Mexican roots", the lawsuit filed in federal court in Brooklyn said.

'As attorney general for the state of Washington, I have a hammer, it's the law'.

Mr. Schneiderman noted that DACA protects more than 40,000 New Yorkers and they contribute $140 million in school and local taxes. "We stand united behind them and their quest for justice", Rodriguez tweeted shortly after being taken into custody. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said in a statement Monday, according to The Hill.

"This, I think, is going to provide more impetus", he said.

Iowa Republicans largely praised the Trump administration's decision. But during the 2016 presidential campaign, then-candidate Trump vowed to terminate the program. Immigration advocates, Dreamers, labour unions, and the chancellor of City University of NY will join Schneiderman at the news conference, Xinhua news agency reported.

This reaction by progressive state leaders comes following the threat of a lawsuit that forced the Trump administration to act in the first place.

The DACA program temporarily prevents the deportation of those who illegally entered the United States as children, allowing them to work under a renewable two-year permit.

Folt also issued a statement in support of DACA recipients in the UNC community. They've been linked to overdose deaths other parts of the country, and Scheiderman wants to get the warning out to people in our region.

The equal protection clause of the U.S. Constitution mandates that no government action should be intentionally discriminatory.

He called Trump's decision "incredible infuriating".

During the course of an ongoing, coast-to-coast investigation into drug trafficking in Western New York, investigators with A.G. Schneiderman's Organized Crime Task Force intercepted a package containing 500 fentanyl-laced blue pills disguised as replica oxycodone.

Choi added that immigrants, advocates and elected officials will have to "fight tooth and nail" in the streets, in the halls of Congress and in the courts.
