BN's Immigration Project: Dreamers 'Very Nervous' About DACA

12 September 2017

Trump might have actually done the DACA cause a favor.

"For all of those (DACA) that are concerned about your status during the 6 month period, you have nothing to worry about - No action!"

That would be one more chapter in President Trump's battle against immigrants trying to find new lives and opportunities in the original land of opportunity founded by immigrants, the United States of America. First, can Congress fix the problem? More than 800,000 young adults have been granted DACA since the start of the program. The argument against DACA recipients is that they are stealing jobs and tax payer dollars, but they contribute to our society just like any other citizen.

Notwithstanding his tweet, the almost 800,000 immigrants who obtained temporary work permits and deportation protections via DACA can not necessarily rest easy.

During his 2016 presidential campaign, Trump promised to end the program after taking office but has since struggled with the decision.

Trump supposedly acted to avoid a threatened lawsuit by xenophobic groups that have wanted to kill the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program ever since President Barack Obama created it by executive order in 2012. Encourage them to support legislation that will undo this heartless political act.

In announcing their opposition to the president's decision to rescind DACA - which would impact approximately 800,000 illegal immigrants brought to this country as children and dubbed "Dreamers" by the program's supporters - Jepsen stressed the potential socioeconomic chaos that this action would have on CT.

Trump is navigating politically tricky waters.

"I am concerned by the government's decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals programme", United Nations rights chef Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein said at the opening of the 36th session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva. Similarly to how the US justice system would never sentence a minor under the age of 15 to the same sentence as an adult, there is no reason to prosecute the Dreamers as if they are consenting adults in the decision their parents made. "So, actually having the president of the UT system, Chancellor (Beverly) Davenport, speak out and say we want undocumented students here because we believe in them and we believe in this diversity, that's concrete action".

If Congress does not legalize DACA or a similar program within six months, many young people will eventually be deported back to their country of origin, including several MU students.

Thalia Novoa, a paralegal with the Immigration Project, said DACA recipients have been reaching out to her since the announcement was made Tuesday.
