Dreamer reacts to potential DACA deal: 'We need something more concrete'

Dreamer reacts to potential DACA deal: 'We need something more concrete'

Sure, there's an impending six-month deadline set by Trump.

Because of President Trump's action, 800,000 young people have lost their legal status to live and work in the United States. Among Republicans, 69 percent want them to stay, meaning that this is far from a partisan issue.

For others, getting rid of the temporary deferment was about law and order, a move meant to fortify American borders and enforce existing laws by forcing Congress to fish or cut bait on revisiting the rules of those who call the US home.

"'I was able to get most of college paid for through scholarships and through a lot of hard work and preparation because I realized early on as an undocumented person that it was going to be hard", said Benitez.

"It would be useful to take some of the pressure off some of the parties, particularly these good educated young people that the president is speaking about with such admiration", Garaufis said.

DACA provided a period of deferred action (a promise that the alien would not be deported) as well as access to certain government benefits. The total includes roughly 200,000 immigrants in California, whose attorney general, Xavier Becerra, led the lawsuit that Mills joined. That means, however, that she'll have to leave the United States to attend an interview in El Salvador. "If they do, I am confident the DREAM Act will pass both chambers of Congress with a strong bipartisan vote and then President Trump can decide whether to make it the law of the land with his signature", he said.

After DACA was initiated in 2012, recipients' hourly wages increased by 42 percent, 6 percent started their own business (compared to a national average of 3.1 percent), 21 percent purchased their first vehicle, 12 percent purchased their first home, and 90 percent received their driver's license or a state identification card.

U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis, citing new tweets by Trump praising the so-called "dreamers" protected by the program, told a Justice Department lawyer he might intervene if the government doesn't extend an October 5 deadline for more than 150,000 of the 800,000 beneficiaries to reapply before the program expires.

DACA was implemented through a memorandum issued by the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security on June 15, 2012.

"Pray directly for DACA recipients..."

KELLY: Tell us about some of these people you've been talking to and what they're telling you.

"Just like I have (had) for the past five years, anxiety", said Seven Flores, who has been shielded from deportation since 2013 under DACA. But of the 130,000 DACA-eligible Asian immigrants referenced by representative Chu, only a fraction have actually applied, which Ramnakrishan says is due to a lack of awareness within the community.

She knows of those who have left for states that are "a bit more welcoming" and have "more support for DACA recipients".

McCluskey said that a year ago, he would have predicted the Dream Act or something like it probably passing in Congress, but in the current political environment, "I have no idea". Congress came close to a fix in 2010, and again in 2013, with comprehensive immigration reform that would have increased border security, helped supplement our workforce where there were shortages, and created an earned pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants - including dreamers.

"Put the onus back on them", said Chris Brewster, the superintendent of Santa Fe South in Oklahoma City and Pastor of The Well church.
