Cornyn: GOP Offers DACA Solution, Democrats Threaten Shutdown

NEA partnered with other organizations to highlight the economic impact of immigrants and recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program during a 50-state campaign taking place today called iMarch for Immigration. Those in the program were brought to the US illegally as children and have grown up and attended school here.

"This letter shows many Republicans are serious about finding a permanent solution to solving the DACA issue as President Trump has urged Congress to do", said Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.), Chairman of the Republican Main Street Caucus. In addition, about 2,000 people converged on nation's Capitol Wednesday for a rally demanding a DACA solution.

Though the end to chain migration is tacked onto an amnesty, by greatly reducing legal immigration levels, where the USA now admits more than 1 million immigrants a year, American wages would rise and blue-collar US workers would be relieved from having to compete with the current immigrant-flooded labor market. "I love these students".

Fact based analysis is critical to every policy debate, and it is a fact that now 86 percent of all Americans and 76 percent of Republicans support protecting Dreamers.

"Dreamers" are immigrants who were brought to the United States illegally as children. Deporting them would cause "the disruption of our businesses and our way of life", he said.

Poliquin said that Congress has to "find a solution to address those well-meaning, law-abiding individuals now caught in DACA status" quickly as it also moves "to update our immigration policies which reduce incentives to break the law". It started in 2012 and protects an estimated 800,000 people from deportation.

So I ask you Congress, when working to find a solution for me and the almost 800,000 Dreamers around the country, please don't seek their ill advice.

"I came to the US when I was a year and a half", Karla Jimenez said. Collins said she expects that a vote will be held in the Senate.

"I was a year old", Randy Huerta said. "I'm heartened to see bipartisan support for these dreamers".

"We are compelled to act immediately because many DACA recipients are about to lose or have already lost their permits in the wake of the program's rescission", the House Republicans said in their letter.

"Now is our time in Congress to lead with justice, mercy, and compassion for DACA recipients", said Taylor. "We care for our families and that's the foundation of what this country is all about".
