President Donald Trump is trying to reassure the hundreds of thousands of immigrants in a program his administration announced it is ending. As John Oliver pointed out on Last Week Tonight, Trump always tells people how "happy" they'll be with the results of his actions when he doesn't have any plan for how to achieve that happiness.
"Now, after months of anxiety and fear about their futures, these courageous young people face deportation", the conference of bishops said in a statement.
Napolitano, former head of the Department of Homeland Security in the Obama administration, says undoing DACA violates the constitutional rights to due process of students covered by DACA, so she is suing the Trump administration in federal court.
On immigration, Trump is navigating politically tricky waters. These Republicans didn't want people who have gotten work permits to lose them or be deported, and they didn't want to take the risk that premiums would rise for many people without the insurance subsidies (even though the Congressional Budget Office says the risk is low).
But Trump's comments about Mexicans are a long way from establishing that bias motivated his decision to revoke DACA, said Kari Hong, an immigration expert at Boston College Law School. The program allowed undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children under the age of 16 to enroll in universities, seek lawful employment and join the military.
Please understand this: Our "Dreamers" know that despite their family's struggles, it was the United States that comforted them from their fears and helped them reach their dreams.
Now having done so, it is now it is up to congress to make the decision to save the program in a legislative form, or to fail just as they did before in 2013.
With DACA's promise of gaining lawful status in the United States, more than 800,000 Dreamers applied for DACA, providing the USA government with all of their personal information.
"The University of Tennessee does not have financial aid for undocumented students", Pedraza said.
Many Dreamers are uncertain of their futures as Congress starts the six-month clock on finding a solution. Faith and Freedom Coalition chairman Ralph Reed posted a Twitter statement that said the executive order which created DACA was "illegal and unconstitutional". He later added - apparently at the behest of Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi - that there would be no action against the young people benefiting under DACA over the next half-year.
The move gives the so-called "Dreamers", many of them Hispanic who are now in their twenties, somewhere between six and 24 months before they become illegal and subject to potential deportation, AFP reported.
