Students gather at Oregon State Capitol for 'Defend the Dream' DACA rally

Students gather at Oregon State Capitol for 'Defend the Dream' DACA rally”

Seven women showed up at U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman's (D-Aurora) office on Tuesday - pushing Congress to allow DACA recipients - who came to the U.S. illegally as children - to remain here without fear of deportation.

President Donald Trump said he plans to end the program in March, and asked Congress to come up with a solution before then.

Now he worries that he'll lose everything - that he'll have to abandon his two younger siblings who were born here; that his pursuit of a double major in physics and computer science at the University of Houston will be cut short; that he'll be forced to move to a odd country where he knows no one.

"I was 11 months old", Diaz said. "It's not that I don't love Mexico and hold it dear, it's just not home".

Congress was given six months to pass a law that would regulate the status of so-called 'Dreamers.' That deadline is now just 50 days away. Colcom's founder, Cordelia Scaife May, the late oil heiress, believed nature was being assailed by overpopulation and left more than $400 million to her foundation with the goal of dramatically restricting and expelling immigrants from the U.S. Today, almost half of her fortune is spent on this work, which includes deporting people like me from the only country we have ever known. "I'm heartened to see bipartisan support for these dreamers". "We are all Dreamers".

Three Yale University professors were among those arrested in D.C. Wednesday on the steps of the U.S. Senate building. "DACA recipients should not be a political football".

"We can not eliminate people who have the will to work, want the jobs, want to grow our economy, want to add to society in many ways, not just as workers but in associations", Sine said.

"DACA should be ended immediately", McClintock said.

She has talked with restaurant owners who said they would keep their establishments open longer if they had enough employees, she said. Many represent large Latino populations, and urged their own leaders to find a DACA solution before they return to their districts later this month. DACA provides renewable, temporary legal status to unauthorized immigrants who arrived in the USA before the age of 16. Your parents both have green cards now.

The bill was introduced by Texas Sen.

Activists and Democratic leaders immediately decried the legislation.

"If DACA would be repealed, it would be taking my status", said Ilse Merlin of Racine, whose mother brought her to the US from Mexico when she was 5 years old.

A group of Republican lawmakers in the House is demanding that Congress pass a legislative replacement for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program before the end of the year, diverging from other GOP lawmakers who say the bill isn't a high priority.

I am participating in this event because we are at a crucial crossroads for justice in the Americas.

It's unclear what, exactly, any agreement over DACA might look like ahead of the program's current end date on Friday.

Denham is one of 34 House Republicans urging his leadership for a vote on DACA.

"There's a lot of momentum", she said. "Clean DREAM Act or no omnibus spending bill, signed your constituent". NumbersUSA's Roy Beck bragged about making "immigration radioactive in as many places as possible". "All it takes is that exposure".

"Only time will tell", said Cesar Garcia Hernandez. "We dropped everything for a better life". "We have a welfare system that's basically trapping people in poverty and effectively paying people not to work, and we've got to work on that". "We are trying to fight the good fight".
