Trump to talk Dreamer fix with GOP lawmakers

DACA is a program that protects children brought to the USA illegally from deportation.

"Mr. Dougherty was not stating administration policy or the President's views", said Tyler Q. Houlton, the DHS deputy press secretary.

"I feel like I've been a good person", Trujillo said.

Senators were questioning officials from the Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice at a hearing about Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, an Obama administration program protecting young undocumented immigrants brought to the USA as children, which President Donald Trump has chosen to end.

At a Senate hearing, Republican Senator John Kennedy asked Homeland Security official Michael Dougherty about Dreamers. Also, she opposed a motion to impose a one-year restriction on most county travel to the nine states who proposed legal action to end DACA.

However, Dougherty's statement on October 3 indicated that the administration's termination of DACA was not as thorough as most people were led to believe.

"The temporary implementation of DACA by the Obama Administration, after Congress repeatedly rejected this amnesty-first approach, also helped spur a humanitarian crisis - the massive surge of unaccompanied minors from Central America including, in some cases, young people who would become members of violent gangs throughout our country, such as MS-13".

What can I do if my DACA expires after March 5, 2018 since my application will no longer be eligible for renewal?

There was a happy-hour fundraiser in Brooklyn and a bake sale in Texas.

As for possible criticism, student government leaders say they haven't received any complaints, but they stand by their decision, stating they are committed to their core principles of representing every Sac State student.

Despite these growing figures, Asian immigrants have some of the lowest numbers of DACA applications. Majority know no other country besides the United States. Lindsey Graham, of SC, who has co-sponsored Durbin's bill, the DHS officials did say they supported a pathway to citizenship for DACA-eligible individuals in an eventual solution - and said they were largely the type of people the USA should want.

When President Trump ended the program in September, he, too, claimed to support the Dreamer community calling on congress to pass a legislative fix to replace DACA.

Elsa Alonso, who wants to be a broadcast journalist, said she put off going to college until she knows what Congress decides to do about DACA over the next six months.

Top administration officials told Congress on Tuesday that illegal immigrant Dreamers should be granted a full pathway to citizenship, seemingly contradicting President Trump who said last month that citizenship wasn't on the table. On Oct. 17 in the Alumni Center, there will be an open forum with a guest speaker from Colorado State University who is a researcher for the Dream Act and author of a book about her research, an event organized by the UNO Department of Multicultural Affairs. "No fear! Everyone is welcome here!" while holding signs with messages supportive of DACA.

As DACA's future is determined on the national stage, Rodriguez has a message for the country: "Just let us have [DACA]", she said. "We're looking at allowing people to stay here". "What am I going to do in terms of my job?" While a DACA deal would allow Congress to do something on immigration, and would nearly certainly include some kind of border security provision, it's far from a clear-cut conservative win on immigration policy.

"I think it's very regrettable that we're holding this group of people hostage", Curtright said. Ramirez did not qualify to renew; however, she attended the event, searching for answers and options to change her status from undocumented to permanent resident.

"Oh really, it's about time", Leahy, who slammed Sessions over missed appointments with the Appropriations committee earlier this year, said.

A report from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine released previous year found that immigration has a positive impact on the nation's economy overall, but not for everyone.
