DACA, what it is and why you should care

If you feel that the Constitutional constraints on the president's power should be ignored, are you willing to set a precedent that would allow the current resident of the White House to-with a stroke of the pen-lower taxes on the rich? I'm here today to announce that the program known as DACA is being rescinded. He has instead forced them to bend to his will in the name of keeping the peace and not inflaming his passionate base of support. Doing so identified them to our immigration service, but they trusted in their government to keep its word.

Washington joins at least 11 other states and the District of Columbia in a lawsuit being filed Wednesday in New York.

That was House Republican Conference Chairwoman Cathy McMorris Rodger's reaction when she heard President Donald Trump backed the Democrats' request for a three-month debt limit extension, against his own party leadership's urging. "Both issues are critical to manufacturers' success and to keeping America exceptional", Jay Timmons, president and CEO of the National Association of Manufacturers, said in a statement.

The administration asserts that the program, created through executive order by then-President Barack Obama, is unconstitutional because it circumvents powers granted toCongress. DACA recipients will lose their eligibility for public and employer-based health insurance programs that reduce the States' health expenditures and promote public health. "They didn't make the decision to enter the U.S. illegally and shouldn't be punished as a result".

The corporate rebuke of the administration's DACA move continues a trend.

Approximately 22,000 of those who could lose protected status and face deportation live in New Jersey. Haverstick says the Pentagon is coordinating with the departments of justice and homeland security "regarding any impact" the change will have on military DACA recipients. As a presidential candidate, he promised one of his first acts would be to rescind DACA. "In fact, it does just the opposite". That bargain they struck with Trump was always a tenuous and uneasy one, and he's now openly violating it. What's more, he's repeatedly and publicly undermining GOP efforts to grow their Senate majority - you know, the one he insists isn't big enough so he needs to nuke the filibuster - in multiple 2018 races.

Young people who registered for DACA to be able to work or attend college had to provide the federal government with information on themselves, and in some cases their families, with the promise that information would not be used by immigration enforcement.

A literal interpretation of the announcement from Sessions would suggest that the program ends if Congress does not come up with an alternative in six months. "As attorney general for the state of Washington, I have a hammer - it's the law", Ferguson said. It's not a permanent fix.

Trump is navigating politically tricky waters. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota - a top GOP target in 2018 - on stage and praised her as a "good woman".

It was "a cruel and heartless blow to vulnerable young citizens who want nothing more than a chance at the American dream", said Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr. But the fate of 800,000 young people caught in the cross-hairs of conservative/liberal ideology transcends politics and policy.

Hundreds of thousands of law-abiding people from around the world are waiting patiently for their backlogged visa and green card applications to be reviewed. In the meantime, says Napolitano, all 10 campuses in the University of California system will do all they can to reassure these students that their education, financial status and safety on campus will not be jeopardized.
