Protections for Undocumented Students Under Attack

Conservatives maintain granting citizenship to undocumented immigrants amounts to "amnesty" for those who broke the law when they came into the USA, the website noted.

Jose Arias woke up Thursday to reports that President Trump was maybe, just maybe, striking a deal with Democratic leaders to enshrine in law a program that protected hundreds of thousands of immigrants who came to the country as young people.

King tweeted that Trump would blow up his base of conservative support and have no credibility, if the president takes what King considers a soft stance on immigration. Charles Schumer, the top Democrats in the House and Senate, respectively, announced there was a deal on DACA. "The hope is that Congress will get to work", said Osio.

US President Donald Trump will not necessarily insist on including funding for a border wall with Mexico in legislation to address protections for children brought to the United States illegally, a senior aide said on Tuesday. While the Trump administration turns its eyes to funding a wall along the southern border, rescinding DACA has been touted as a legislative win in the wake of brutal defeats on the repeal of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the original draft of the administration's travel ban. "By March 5th, we will have some kind of decision of what they're going to do". They were children, now they're young people.

"Just like I have (had) for the past five years, anxiety", said Seven Flores, who has been shielded from deportation since 2013 under DACA.

The Cats' next two offensive drives were ended by turnovers, an interception from Stephen Johnson and a fumble recovered by SC . When South Carolina got the ball back, Baity intercepted one of Bentley's passes and the offense kneeled out the clock.


"We were going to have the Rolls-Royce of a big, lovely wall", King said, adding that Trump's more recent comments about immigration mean that "the Rolls-Royce is now going to be an overhauled jalopy". "Congress now has 6 months to legalize DACA (something the Obama Administration was unable to do)".

CASTRO: Well, I think that, you know, the idea of amnesty from 1986 was kind of a blanket allowance of people to stay with no conditions. Though Sessions argued that the bill "essentially provided a legal status for recipients", the Obama Administration noted in 2016 that the bill simply redirected immigration enforcement elsewhere.

ITZEL GUILLEN: I definitely felt a lot more anxiety than I have ever in my life. They don't have a memory of their home country.

Cross says Dreamers don't have a pathway to citizenship that keeps them in the US and most people don't realize this.

While we believe President Trump's action only contributes to the growing anti-Hispanic xenophobia overtaking policymakers in our country, we also view his actions as an opportunity - once again - for Congress to do its job.
