Young immigrants vow to fight Trump's halt of program

New York to file lawsuit to protect DACA recipients

Montini: The YUGE lie Trump told 'dreamers'

Wright's wife, Annie Wright, told the Chicago Tribune her husband lived quietly in suburban Chicago for much of his life, but in the 2000s, he became more vocal about Till.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra plans to file a separate lawsuit because a quarter of DACA recipients are California residents, his spokeswoman Bethany Lesser said.

Bannon has since returned to his role as the executive chairman of Breitbart News.

Colbert then took aim at Trump for his administration's decision to phase out the Obama administration's DACA program. But those with criminal records are not eligible for DACA.

There was no punchline attached.

The BRIDGE Act doesn't provide a pathway for citizenship for DACA recipients, added Murthy, but puts the DACA program into law, rather than enforcing it through executive order, and the RAC Act makes immigrants jump through even more hurdles to become protected, she said. Today, he works as a program manager for the nonprofit Latino Leadership Council, where he helps homeless citizens connect to the care they need. She was among about 200 people who protested Trump's decision outside the Nebraska Capitol in Lincoln on Tuesday.

"They are the best of America", Schneiderman said.

Yes, the vast majority of DACA holders are adults.

On the one hand, Mr. Trump gave his electoral base an end to President Obama's unconstitutional program for legalizing the presence of some 800,000 erstwhile children brought here illegally by their parents.

Colbert said that Sessions did not want the Dreamers who now face deportation to take the decision personally, explaining the country must limit how many people it lets in each year.

"It would be just a massive setback - both morally, socially and economically - if we fail to deliver on this", he said. "However, of course we would encourage persons who are in the country illegally to depart voluntarily, or seek another form of immigration benefit for which they might qualify". And the number of refugees offered permanent U.S. residency would be capped at 50,000 - a sharp cut from 84,995 refugees accepted last year. That could happen, but it's not necessarily the way to bet. "And it's as simple as that". Wednesday, the university sponsored the first of several DACA forums in response to students' distress. But these reports cited multiple reasons for the surge, primarily violence in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

Trump's announcement Tuesday will affect 787,000 Dreamers, 97 percent of who are working or in school.

He says, "I certainly hope they do". And despite Trump's claim that he would act with a "big heart" on immigration, continuing DACA just does not fit with the Administration's restrictionist, anti-immigrant agenda. In that case, GAO surveyed nine federal officials stationed in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador for the Department of State, Department of Homeland Security and USAID.

Greg Romanovsky, head of the New England chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association, says the elimination of DACA will leave most of the recipients with little recourse. They should have that opportunity to do so and earn their way forward.

On drug policy, Trump and Sessions have announced a clear intent to return to the bad old days of the war on drugs, bringing back aggressive prosecution of low-level offenders and minor possession offenses. While we are a nation of immigrants, we are also a nation of laws. Some only learned they had no legal status when they needed documents to join field trips or apply for college.
