"It is evident that the Trump Administration is determined to undermine this nation's history of inclusion, tolerance and diversity toward immigrant communities", Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker said in a statement.

"Even President Obama had stated that it was a temporary order and he himself stated many times over that it is something that needs to be addressed by Congress", Ernst said.

"We are going to continue to offer a DREAM loan program", she says, "and we are going to continue our directive to our campus police that they are not to serve as surrogate immigration agents". A 2016 report on the economic impact of DACA was sponsored by both the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce and the Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota, among others.

DACA prevents deportation of undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States before the age of 16 and were below the age of 31 in June 2012, as well as allowing them to obtain work permits and driver's licenses.

As indications of Trump's alleged bias, the suit cited his previous statements referring to some Mexican immigrants as rapists and his decision to pardon former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was convicted of contempt for ignoring a federal court order to stop traffic patrols that targeted immigrants.

It's an act of pure cruelty to young people, most of whom are in their 20s.

We must strive for a solution that reaches beyond the 800,000 Dreamers who were granted DACA.

Lowe is prompting businesses to go through their I-9 forms, which workers fill out to show they're legally authorized to work in the United States, to see who might be able to renew their status before the deadline. "California has its eyes on Congress to do what it should have done years ago, but we cannot bank on that".

The overwhelming majority of DACA recipients are from Mexico.

"After toying with their futures and raising their hopes with talk of his 'big heart', Donald Trump has shown exactly what his priorities are. That bears repeating: Less than four in 10 REPUBLICANS approve of the job REPUBLICAN congressional leaders are doing".

What could be included in the December measure? But the program isn't accepting new applications. They are in our kindergarten classes and our dorm rooms.

"Employers really should brace themselves", said Shin-I Lowe, an attorney who specializes in corporate immigration law at the firm Littler Mendelson. They have provided their legal names, addresses and phone numbers.

The 2017 DREAM Act cancels the removal of DACA recipients and offers individuals a road to citizenship.

The end of DACA means "nearly 6,500 young people are now living in fear of being deported", according to Benjamin Roth, assistant professor in the College of Social Work at the University of South Carolina.

These people are not unlawful criminals, as they have often been painted by Trump's far-right supporters and Republican allies in Congress. They are motivated, educated, and belong here just as much as any of us do. Trump had quickly sided with Democrats on a short-term debt ceiling increase, even overruling his own Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to concur with "Chuck and Nancy", as he later called them on Air Force One.

In response to that expansion of DACA, U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen of the U.S. District Court in Brownsville, Texas, issued an injunction on February 16, 2015 blocking the executive action.

Many Dreamers have no memory of any home but the United States. Founded in 1846, AP has covered all the major news events of the past 165 years, providing high-quality, informed reporting of everything from wars and elections to championship games and royal weddings. Obama violated his oath of office by not enforcing the constitutional law of the land, as would President Trump, if he did not return "ALL" legislative powers back to Congress by not renewing the unconstitutional DAPA program. It's also a public relations nightmare for a party that has already shown little aptitude for countering deceitful media narratives about "Nazis" and "white supremacists".
