Barrone: Can Trump and Democrats make a deal on immigration?

Jerome Frank

Critics say then-President Barack Obama did not have the authority to create the program when he set it up in 2012, and they say DACA beneficiaries take jobs and other benefits that should go to legal residents.

President Obama chose to issued an executive order entitled Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Trump said his decision would include a six-month delay so Congress can codify the program into law, and he has threatened to revisit his decision if lawmakers fail to act. First, can Congress fix the problem?

"It is imperative, however, that we stand up for these vital members of the UC community", says Napolitano.

Establishment Republicans don't want to be seen as racists, so naturally they aren't pushing DACA's repeal.

He said program recipients contribute vastly to the American economy.

In 2014, the Migration Policy Institute estimated about 241,000 people who were eligible for DACA were enrolled in college.

It seems that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., fresh off an negotiated Oval Office victory on the debt ceiling on Wednesday, made a decision to wring another concession from President Donald Trump a day later.

The coalition filed the suit on Wednesday in a NY federal court against the decicion to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme, reports Efe news.

President Donald Trump sought to assure hundreds of thousands of immigrants protected from deportation under an Obama-era action that they need not worry about the wind-down of the program as Congress debates an alternative.

He pointed to evidence of the programme's "positive impact on the lives of hundreds of thousands of young migrants, and on the USA economy and society", and said he hoped Congress would now act to provide former DACA beneficiaries with "durable legal status".

On Thursday during Clubs Day, representatives for the Coalition for Undocumented Students and Allies, a resource listed by the Puente Program, said they were unwilling to be interviewed by The Current for this story.

At this time of turbulence, with the DACA program facing its possible end, it has hit me particularly hard to think of the faces of my students, waking up to hear their status is now in question.

Basi said there are fewer than 10 DACA students attending MU. 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.

We are the land of opportunity, and we can not pride ourselves on that unless we make a change and stand with those who want the opportunities that were promised to them.
