  • Ninety-seven percent of the young undocumented immigrants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program are working or in school – but the decision to end DACA leaves them facing an uncertain future

Today's decision by the Trump Administration to end the DACA program is shortsighted, misguided and deeply harmful to the DPS community.

Other participating states in Wednesday's lawsuit are New York, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and Virginia, plus the District of Columbia.

Rescinding DACA will also injure state-run colleges and universities, upset workplaces and damage companies and economies that include immigrants covered under the program, the lawsuit says.

The reason I'm not behind DACA is because it delays the inevitable.

Implemented by President Barack Obama in 2012, DACA offered immigrants who meet certain eligibility requirements to receive a renewable two-year deferral on being considered for deportation, as well as a work permits. Students' information will remain confidential, the Washington University Police Department will not inquire about immigration status and the Office of International Students and Scholars will offer legal advice, in addition to helping those who may be displaced find housing. They believe they have to do something to accommodate current DACA recipients while not making the overall immigration problem worse. They have until Oct. 5 to renew their permits.

As Guatemalan American Luisa Moreno pointed out before her deportation in 1954, immigrant dreams are American dreams.

But with the federal government's exclusive control to enforce immigration law, it's not clear how effective the resistance of California and other states will be. Successive GI Bills have provided higher education to veterans. Instead, we need to continue, with strong and open arms, to build a great nation that it is lifted up by the hopes and dreams of all of our people.

There is absolutely no way that the president and his wife were "thrilled" to serve food in a shelter.

It's this insatiable appetite for collective entitlement that demonstrates the perils of blanket amnesty.

But handing off the decision to Congress, which has shown itself unwilling to address the issue of "Dreamers", is a decision itself.

The Wisconsin Idea was articulated long before crossing the border without papers became a misdemeanor.

He said Microsoft is committed to the 39 known Dreamers employees of the company and would "vigorously defend" their legal rights. Most are united in their belief that Obama overstepped his authority by instituting DACA.

DACA benefits our public universities. They graduate in significant numbers. be welcoming to all.

The way in which the program was ended, Becerra added, might also have violated DACA recipients' privacy rights. I was dumbfounded, blindsided by the prospect that a life that felt so secure was now being shaken.

Since the election last November, students and educators around the country have created a #sanctuary campus movement.

"This week, President Trump rescinded the previous administration's unlawful Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program."

Many universities and colleges have passed a wide range of sanctuary resolutions.

If anyone deserves the "cruel" and "heartless" labels, it is those adults who knew full well what they were doing and that they likely would be putting their children in a precarious position at some point in time. But you don't know that because you trust the usual suspects to give you your news.
