Kathy Castor: It'll be 'colossal error' for Donald Trump to dump DACA

Denham Reaffirms Support For DACA Program

DACA participants, who were brought to the U.S.as children, are technically undocumented, though the policy enacted by former President Barack Obama granted them access to a Social Security number and work permit, along with deferred deportation.

U.S. President Donald Trump is weighing whether to end protections for 800,000 people like Ms. Alvarez who were brought to the country illegally as children.

He faces a September 5 deadline set by Republican lawmakers who have threatened to challenge the program in court unless Trump begins to dismantle it. A recent study by Fwd.us, a group established by technology executives to push for immigration reform, found that 30,000 people a month could lose their jobs or be fired as their DACA protections expire. "Or is there anything else that we can do for the individual based on their circumstances?" she said. They have earned time with the 2016 presidential candidates, were hosted at the Obama White House and Congress, and formed powerful lobbying organizations.

To investigate how immigration status can affect a person's family, Jens Hainmueller at Stanford University and his colleagues have been using data from Oregon's Emergency Medicaid programme, a healthcare scheme predominantly used by undocumented immigrants. "We also conducted several tests that confirmed that their children had similar background characteristics and health status before DACA was implemented", says Jens Hainmueller, Stanford professor and co-director of the Immigration Policy Lab.

However, Borovska said, the Trump administration may step up its I-9 audit program to cover more ground and surveil businesses. "They represent a vibrant thread of our nation's patchwork, and forcing more than 800,000 of them to leave the country, including more than 100,000 Floridians, will be a moral stain this Administration can not erase".

"This is earth shattering for so many affected by it", she said after hearing the report. An announcement on the program could come as soon as this week.

"If they have any humanity left in their hearts, they should leave DACA in place", said Ms. Fernandez, 29.

"To me, it would be utterly irrational to pick a fight over the dreamers", Gingrich said, adding that ending the program would further hamper the president and isolate his administration.

Hill sources don't expect a DACA fix to emerge right away when Congress reconvenes, even if Trump scraps the program right before they return. In addition, businesses would incur $3.4 billion in turnover costs to replace their DACA employees, who are given work permits under the program, the letter said. In my work I've met many DACA students, worked with them, and admire their commitment to be productive members of society. "This puts them back in limbo, but I know they will continue to be resilient". He ran for president on an anti-immigration platform and recently spiked a DACA-like effort that, had it taken effect, would have shielded the immigrant parents of USA citizens. And it applies only to the fixed pool of those who were brought to the USA as children before June 2007.

"I don't know what it's going to take - maybe it's a lawsuit, maybe it's creating a lot of noise", she said.
