Sessions as face of DACA decision reveals WH struggle

Obama slammed the decision as "wrong", "self-defeating" and "cruel".

A group of Republican attorney generals threatened to attack DACA in a lawsuit if President Donald Trump didn't revoke it by September 5. The nonprofit works on immigration and other issues at offices in Modesto and three other cities. Over 90 percent of DACA recipients are now employed, including tens of thousands in NY, and a rescission of DACA will only cause pain to our nation and our state's pocketbooks. "Six percent of survey respondents started a business, 54 percent bought a vehicle, and 60 percent purchased a home". "They have established roots here". His family came from Colima, Mexico, and he's relied on DACA to stay in the country.

People who miss the October deadline will be disqualified from renewing their permission to remain in the country and could face deportation, although the Trump administration has said it will not actively provide their information to immigration authorities.

"It's kind of tough because when something like this happens, it's like, what am I working for?" But today, it sunk in.

"Dreamers left everything behind, and DACA allowed me to work".

The Senate has a handful of proposals it may consider over the next six months that deal with DACA, including a renewed, bipartisan DREAM Act that is now being proposed by Sens. But what if it does happen? That's valid. I know I can be deported tomorrow. My family is not there.

In all, the networks spent 17 minutes and 44 seconds of airtime lambasting Trump and his decision while only giving 11 seconds to those who supported him or thought he didn't go far enough. "It's stressful. It's very stressful".

"If President Trump makes this decision, we will work to find a legislative solution to their dilemma", Senator Lindsey Graham said.

Aside from the interceptions on consecutive throws, Speight was 11-of-23 passing for 181 yards with the TD to Black. Maize hats flew to the ball and consistently sent extra defenders into the backfield to pressure the quarterback.

"The young men and women here under DACA - many who are living in the only country they have ever known - are students, innovators, business owners and veterans who enrich our country and contribute to our economy and culture".

Napolitano echoed the same sentiment and hoped for a similar solution: "I call upon the U.S. Congress to immediately pass bipartisan legislation that would provide a permanent solution for these young people - one that charts a secure pathway toward citizenship and allows these Dreamers to continue to live, work and serve the only country majority know as home".

Beyond the real-life impacts of the repeal, the optics are part of what makes the debate so complex: Though only a small fraction of the total 11 million undocumented immigrant population in the United States, the DACA recipients represent a sympathetic subset, as eligibility is premised on having long-established residency and a squeaky clean record.

The groups asked to piggyback on an existing lawsuit brought previous year by Martin Batalla Vidal, who was brought to the United States from Mexico by his parents when he was seven.

About 600 of the Dreamers attend the University of California, Merced, where Chancellor Dorothy Leland issued a statement denouncing the decision.

When teasing the story, CBS Anchor Anthony Mason described the situation as "shattered dreams", playing off the term "Dreamers" the phrase used to describe those who receive DACA protections.

She also pointed out that there is legislation out there "to give DACAs permanent resident status".

"This backward-thinking, far-reaching move threatens to separate families and derail the futures of some of this country's brightest young minds, thousands of whom now attend or have graduated from the University of California", said Napolitano, who was USA secretary of homeland security from 2009 to 2013 and had a part in formulating the DACA program.
