Cartwright signed a letter with the Association of American Universities supporting the renewal of DACA.
A diverse array of Jewish organizations rallied in support of Dreamers earlier this week after the White House announced plans to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. So, we are giving a voice to those who have little voice in our society, who do not know where to go to get help and who do not know our laws or how our country works. They often say that the program has resulted in a humanitarian crisis at the U.S. borders and that these immigrants usually take away their jobs.
Thalia Novoa, a paralegal with the Immigration Project, said DACA recipients have been reaching out to her since the announcement was made Tuesday. These Republicans didn't want people who have gotten work permits to lose them or be deported, and they didn't want to take the risk that premiums would rise for many people without the insurance subsidies (even though the Congressional Budget Office says the risk is low).
"I'm still getting up and going to class every day", she says.
Never mind that he and Trump provided zero evidence of this; that many employers are struggling to find workers, even for well-paid jobs; that all DACA visa holders are equal to 0.5 percent of the USA workforce, and that about 45 percent are attending school, according to a 2017 study. To be eligible for the program, applicants have to be younger than 31 years old and provide evidence to show that they have lived in the U.S. consecutively since June 15, 2007, according to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services website. This part of the program is particularly impressive to me, as the recipient knows one single slip-up could result in deportation. But what worries me is what could follow. It was not a statement that centered on pushing Congress to replace DACA over the next six months or making the case for a more robust policy from Congress.
"Some migrants, including longstanding residents, are now so frightened of expedited deportation they refrain from accessing police protection and courtrooms", Zeid said.
The American Dream was the concept that encouraged my family to immigrate to this country many years ago.
The participants were brought to the USA illegally as children or came with families who overstayed visas.
But it seems like Trump was pressured by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, among other state attorneys general, to dissolve DACA or face it being put to the courts. "Honestly, does it make any damn sense?" Rather, it is a return to proper law enforcement. Although many conservatives support Trump's decision, it is encouraging to see that many people oppose the decision.
