DACA and what it means for tens of thousands of Coloradans

Should those workers - who were brought to the United States illegally as children - be deported, Harrison doubts he would find other workers to replace them anytime soon. Most of the undocumented immigrants covered by the Obama plan came from Mexico or Central American countries. Federal immigration services estimate more than 17,000 Coloradans are among them.

His on-the-ground viewpoint couldn't be more different from that of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who made the questionable assertion Tuesday that the Obama administration's measure "denied jobs to hundreds of thousands of Americans by allowing those same jobs to go to illegal aliens". In his remarks, Session said the program "essentially provided a legal status for recipients for a renewable two-year term, work authorization and other benefits, including participation in the Social Security program".

Trump has given Congress six months to craft DACA's legislative muscle - or end the program entirely. However, several economists said Sessions' claim that Dreamers took jobs away from U.S. residents are rated as false. "We desperately need workers in this country", he added.

"We all want safe, secure borders and a dynamic economy, and people of goodwill can have legitimate disagreements about how to fix our immigration system so that everybody plays by the rules", Obama wrote in the Facebook post. There are 241,000 DREAMers enrolled in college today according to the Migrant Policy Institute.

"I think organizations are causing this political disruption to target the president".

President Donald Trump gave Congress six months to work through Immigration legislation. Obama's attempt to expand the program in 2014 ended up in court where DACA was ruled unconstitutional.

Sens. Michael Bennet of Denver and Cory Gardner of Yuma immediately announced they would jointly sponsor the Dream Act of 2017. "Congress must move quickly to pass this legislation". Many of the immigrants know only the United States as their home country.

"(This) event is about setting up DACA recipients: "not even DACA recipients, just immigrants as a whole", Isaiah Lopez, a senior history major from Lubbock and coordinator of the event, said.

Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman of Aurora also reacted Tuesday by initiating a "discharge petition" that would force a vote on a DACA-related bill in the U.S. House of Representatives. It usurped Congressional authority, amounting to executive overreach.

"These are some of my top guys", Harrison said.

At present, there are 800,000 DACA children - referred to as "Dreamers" - in America (20,000 in Massachusetts). On Wednesday, the attorneys general of 15 states and the District of Columbia filed a lawsuit to block actions on DACA on Wednesday. It's not only bad policy; it's bad law. He accused the president of showing his bias against Mexicans and Latinos. Napolitano is now the president of the University of California.

"The University faces the loss of vital members of its community, students and employees", Napolitano said". It is hard to imagine a decision less reasoned, more damaging, or undertaken with less care. The fault is theirs, and theirs alone.

Support for the administration's decision has been scant.

Forget Robert Mueller, the hostile media, the Deep State or the obstructionist Democrats and RINO Republicans. And now premium rates are skyrocketing 20 percent and higher in most states.
