Trump promised to get rid of DACA during the campaign, so even if he changes his mind he still has to end the program. The federal program shields certain young undocumented immigrants from deportation while allowing them to attend school and work here legally. That's not to mention of the $465 fee applicants had to pay. If you want legal immigration, why discourage this program?
Democrats and immigrant-rights activists have berated Ms. Duke and President Trump for their decision to phase out the Obama-era deportation amnesty for Dreamers, calling it cruel.
"There is a lot of assistance here in LA".
A number of lectures were given at the college by faculty members at the school this past week.
Students seeking legal aid or help in filling out renewal forms can also communicate with HEFAS at the East Cottage, and from there can be directed to community resources such as Siren, Sacred Heart, and the Asian Law Alliance. The process of renewal can take time, so the sooner it is done, the better the outcome. I know numerous people reading this are not affected by this decision.
According to Esquivel, money has been allocated by most districts in Los Angeles County to assist permit holders.
The program will start with a "Know Your Rights" presentation by the Long Beach Immigrant Rights Coalition followed by a workshop on current issues related to DACA provided by Centro CHA. Another reason to get a legal screening, she said, is that some young people who now have DACA may be eligible for other forms of immigration relief.
Feyten wants students to know that they will always be a "valuable part of Texas Woman's University community", and TWU's mission is to "educate students in an inclusive environment that embraces diversity". "They trust an individual who ends up taking advantage of their generosity".
In the meantime, Ortiz Oakley noted in the prepared statement that more than 5,000 scholarship applications have been submitted nationwide since the fund was created on September 13, with 900 coming from California community college students, making this the largest scholarship fund of its kind in the country. They will still allow any DACA recipients with a permit set to expire on March 5th, 2018.
That's a far cry from winning approval in the U.S. Senate and House, of course. She's anxious losing her status also means losing her job and her chance at a college degree in education and her dream of being an elementary school teacher. Pelosi said Trump told her he would sign the DREAM Act into law if Congress passed it.
In the meantime, Arroyo plans to talk with an immigration attorney to explore her options. It quotes a Democratic staffer saying "there is bipartisan opposition to many of them", and quotes a business lobbyist saying the "agenda to try to attach 50 percent cuts to legal immigration and other provisions completely undermines the president's desire and chances for any deal".
Collins said numerous immigration problems the nation is facing are a direct result of the porous borders under the Obama Administration when millions of immigrants illegally entered the United States, bringing their minor children with them.
Meanwhile, with time running out and potentially tens of thousands of DACA recipients yet to file, some lawmakers have asked the Trump administration to give applicants more time to renew.
Almost $2.5 million has been raised by the Mission Asset Fund for the $495 application fee each renewal applicant must pay.
