President Trump's DACA decision draws criticism from University administration

President Trump's DACA decision draws criticism from University administration”

President Trump said Thursday he's "fairly close" to a deal with Congress that would protect young undocumented immigrants who came into the country illegally as children and address border security.

"The wall will come later, we're right now renovating large sections of wall, massive sections, making it brand new", Trump told reporters as he departed the White House for Florida, where he was to tour hurricane damage.

The letter, signed by UC President Janet Napolitano and all 10 UC chancellors, strongly urges DACA recipients whose permits are set to expire between September 5, 2017, and March 5, 2018, to apply for a two-year renewal.

Trump announced last week that his administration was rescinding the program, but gave Congress six months to come up with a legislative fix.

"Seton Hall does not ask students their legal status so we do not know how many of our current students could be affected by DACA, or how this could impact enrollment in the future, but we do know that the decision to room back DACA is antithetical and on direct conflict with our mission", Meehan wrote in a separate email to The Setonian.

"We're working on a plan subject to getting massive border controls".

"Seton Hall is home to all of you-regardless of citizenship status-and we will continue to stand by those of you who are harmed by the elimination of DACA", Meehan wrote. "And I think something can happen, we'll see what happens, but something will happen".

"Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military?" Chuck Schumer of NY and Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California, the top Democrats on Capitol Hill. "They believed they had a new life and chances, but that could be coming to nothing at all", Kebede said.

They clarified Thursday that there was no final deal, but insisted that they agreed with Trump that DACA should be put into law and that the wall would not be part of an agreement.

They also wrote that the Undocumented and DACA Student Initiative, now housed in the First-Generation College and Low-Income Student Center, would continue "to be the center of support for students with questions about available legal, financial and other resources". A person briefed on the meeting, who spoke on condition anonymity about the private get-together, said the move specifies bipartisan legislation that would provide eventual citizenship for the young immigrants.

It was the second time in two weeks that Trump cut out Republicans to reach a deal with Pelosi and Schumer. Last week, Trump agreed to a budget package that included a suspension of the debt limit, short-term spending and $15 billion in hurricane relief - to the consternation of some Republicans who felt he gave up too much leverage.

He also said Republican congressional leaders, House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky favored his approach on the immigration program.

House conservatives had a mixed reaction to the development.

Trump wants to build a wall along the United States border with Mexico to keep out illegal immigrants. "You can tunnel under a wall", he said.

But Breitbart was already labeling Trump "Amnesty Don".

For a period of five years, about 800,000 undocumented immigrants have had the opportunity to live in the United States without the looming fear of being deported, according to CNN. Raul Grijalva along with 116 members of the Democratic Caucus.
