The Insane Economic Cost of Ending DACA

The Insane Economic Cost of Ending DACA

"Along with my fellow attorneys general, I will stand by these hard-working young people to ensure they are treated fairly and feel safe in the only place they've ever known as home".

Under former President Barack Obama, Justice Department lawyers concluded in 2014 that DACA is lawful.

But even with all the bellwethers indicating that Trump would strike down yet another Obama-era policy, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, Velazquez says she couldn't resist not thinking about the inevitable. They called DACA an unconstitutional abuse of executive power but proponents of the program said the move by Trump was cruel.

"Despite powerful evidence of the program's success, in six months, President Trump will withdraw our country's promise to these young people who know no other country than the United States as 'home, ' Scott said in a prepared statement".

The Trump administration also said it would not change its immigrant enforcement priorities during the delay and would not target DACA immigrants if they had not committed other crimes. While I agree with the same concern over the status of these individuals, I do not agree with the same criticism of sending DACA back to Congress. DACA was unilaterally ordered by President Obama after Congress refused to approve the program. "We believe that President Trump has acted unlawfully in s tripping DACA protection from those who have followed the rules laid out for them and structured their lives in reliance on the protections they were promised". "They deserve to stay here", he said, adding that the Dreamers are making America great. They were brought to the USA illegally as children or came with families who overstayed visas.

Called Dreamers, these young people by and large tried to be responsible citizens, earn high school and college diplomas, find jobs, pay taxes.

Lawmakers such as Representatives Martha Roby, Mo Brooks, Gary Palmer, Bradley Byrne, Mike Rogers, Robert Aderholt, and Terri Sewell, along with Senators Richard Shelby and Luther Strange, must decide if they are on the side of Dreamers or on the side of the ugly forces that helped to end DACA.

President Donald Trump won election on a promise to restore America's economic prosperity.

California's lawsuit isn't likely to make any different legal arguments, he said.

Menchaca said many DACA recipients come from humble families with limited incomes unable to shoulder a lengthy and costly process.

"No mixed signal at all", Trump said when asked what he says to those who say that mixed signals are coming from the White House on DACA. The recipients were also issued work permits and a Social Security number, and could re-apply to have them renewed every two years.

On Tuesday night, another lawsuit was filed about the DACA decision in a federal trial court in Brooklyn, N.Y. Martin Jonathan Batalla Vidal of Queens, New York, had already filed a lawsuit about a year ago in an attempt to limit the nationwide reach of Hanen's order. "As attorney general for the state of Washington, I have a hammer, it's the law".
