Kathy Castor: It'll be 'colossal error' for Donald Trump to dump DACA

01 September 2017

I desperately hope that President Trump and his administration rethinks the future of DACA and realizes how much economic, social, and emotional harm would be caused if the program was ended.

"This is something that he has absolutely turned his back on the base on", said Chris Chmielenski, NumbersUSA's director of content and activism. "I will fight for DACA and I won't leave until I've won", she said. "He promised to do it and he has not done it yet".

On the campaign trail, he said that he would "immediately terminate" DACA. We're going to take care of everybody ... Romero was just a young teenager when her mother was deported and has younger sisters who are US citizens.

DACA was designed five years ago for undocumented immigrants younger than 30, "dreamers", who were brought to the U.S.as children.

Now 26 and with a 7-year-old daughter, she calls the idea of DACA being dismantled by the Trump administration and targeted for deportation "overwhelming".

"We are deeply grateful for Congressman Denham's extraordinary leadership to pass a bipartisan legislative solution to protect 800,000 hardworking Dreamers", added Todd Schulte, President of FWD.us. Under DACA, undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States as minors are eligible to apply for a renewable work permit protecting them from deportation.

The church opened its doors Tuesday and has been serving primarily as a distribution center for supplies to help flooding victims. But the main thing is that the city didn't ask us to become a shelter then. "That's what Lakewood is all about".

Forcing the issue is the fact that attorneys general in 10 states threatened to sue the government unless the Trump administration starts to dismantle the program by September 5. This would be a cruel and reckless decision by Donald Trump.

"I think he's genuinely conflicted on this and trying to figure it out", an anonymous Republican told McClatchy DC. Meanwhile, the Harvey catastrophe makes the optics of the decision even more brutal for the White House, Axios says. He said targeting DACA would be a dire mistake for the president, earning the ire of almost 800,000 people, along with their friends and families.

That all changed in 2012 when President Obama issued the executive order that allowed me to obtain DACA status.

More tech groups and companies are expected to urge the administration to keep DACA in place, according to sources. "But you have some absolutely incredible kids, I would say mostly".

Demonstrators swarmed the streets of Midtown from Columbus Circle to Trump Tower Wednesday night to show their support for immigrants across the country. "'There is no room for compromise", the group's president, William Gheen, said this week. With the faux deadline looming close and Trump's own opaque views on the issue, more than 2,000 government leaders, representatives, mayors, and more have pledged to "defend" the Dreamers.

If the program goes away, it will force employers to part ways with employees who are no longer authorized to work.
