States' suit over DACA seeks to use Trump's words against him

States' suit over DACA seeks to use Trump's words against him”

Some immigration attorneys are going to be working long hours to help people in a soon-to-expire program that defers deportation for immigrants brought to the US illegally as children.

But economists on both sides of the political spectrum say the move will harm the USA economy, reducing output and making it even tougher to find workers in an already tight labour market, without doing anything positive for ordinary Americans.

A coalition of 16 states and the District of Columbia sued the Trump administration Wednesday to block the repeal of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), an Obama-era policy that protects children from deportation.

Washington, Sep 7 (Prensa Latina) US President Donald Trump said today that beneficiaries of an initiative for undocumented immigrant youngsters, rescinded two days ago, should be worry-free for the next six months.

DACA recipients whose permits expire in the next six months have until October 5 to apply for a two-year renewal. That would culminate in $105 billion U.S.in reduced economic output in 2022.

"These employees are located in several different states, including Washington and California, and work in a wide range of technical and non-technical job families, from software development to procurement", said Amazon immigration lead Ayesha Blackwell-Hawkins in the statement of support for the lawsuit. I said thanks for calling.

Although Trump has said positive things about Dreamers in the past, his various on-the-record beliefs about Mexicans display "a long history of disparaging Mexicans, who comprise the vast majority of DACA grantees", the suit alleges.

In support of their argument that Trump's decision violates the constitution's equal-protection clause, the attorneys general pointed to derogatory remarks the Republican made about Mexican migrants on the campaign trail.

As in the travel ban litigation, the plaintiffs claim a series of statements made by the president during the campaign and after the inauguration evince the true objective of his policy - discrimination against immigrants. Since Trump took office, ICE has become emboldened and we fear the government will soon engage in massive deportation raids of DACA recipients, who willingly provided their personal information, including home addresses, to the federal government. "We won, plain and simple".

Ferguson sued Trump earlier this year over the initial travel ban, which resulted in a federal judge blocking its nationwide enforcement.

He said Trump's decision would "stifle the dreams of some of the most vibrant people in our community".

"This is being met with a wave of revulsion", Inslee said. There's just one problem: no court has ever ruled that is the case...

Nearly 800,000 Dreamers live in the USA, 70 percent of them having arrived as children from Mexico with 90 percent having been born in Latin America.

With DACA or without DACA, we are immigrants, and we have fought hard in the United States, and we will continue to do so to improve our lives, said Mexican Norberto López, 23 years old and 22 as a resident in California state.
