A Decision on DACA is Imminent

A Decision on DACA is Imminent”

Soon after, the White House denied the report and said it had made no decision on the ultimatum from 10 states to end the program by Tuesday or face a challenge to its legality in federal court. Trump's immigration executive order Asked Friday if those who are now protected by the program should be anxious, the president responded: "We love the DREAMers".

Vice President Pence said Thursday that President Trump is mulling action on the program allowing people brought to the US illegally as children, sometimes referred to as "Dreamers", to stay and obtain work permits.

DACA protects approximately 800,000 undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S.as children before 2012.

It allows illegal immigrants that came to the United States as children to apply to defer deportations. Rescinding this program President Obama decreed by executive action - that usurped Congress's power - was a campaign pledge, but President Trump has hedged on delivering on his campaign. "I went to a top four school', she says".

DACA is available to immigrants without criminal records who were brought to the country when they were younger than 16 years old. "This is something that Congress has to fix".

A senior administration official briefed the media on the president's plans Thursday.

However, with the more than 30,000 dreamers in New York, Laurie Davidson of the Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs, or MOIA, said the office is ready for whatever decision the president makes. She say the United States is the only home she knows. Many Republicans - Speaker Paul Ryan included - have spoken out saying that the President needs to show his "big heart" and take care of the almost 800,000 protected under DACA. "What's going to make a difference is our actions and our persistence to change what has to happen in Congress, to change what has to happen in the White House", said Langlois. The group told US Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a June letter they would challenge DACA in court by September 5 if the president didn't end the program. Work permits issued under DACA must be renewed every two years.
