DACA deadline passes by without clear path forward

When Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election, numerous so-called "Dreamers" - who were protected from deportation by an Obama-era policy - knew their days in the US might be numbered.

State Attorney General Xavier Becerra called Monday "a good day for the rule of the law" because Dreamers can report to school and work and, "We're not talking about young peoples' deportation and having their dreams crushed by the Trump Administration".

"We are not only part of the workforce, but we are part of the entrepreneurial community", says Ivan Guzman, a Mexican immigrant and Dreamer who co-founded a restaurant, La Avenida, in East Harlem in 2016.

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that shields almost 700,000 of the so-called Dreamers from deportation was supposed to expire on March 5, six months after Trump announced he was ending it.

They are asking Congress to pass legislation to protect "Dreamers" following the Trump administration's decision to end the Obama-era DACA program. "Not to mention that as young people reach the age for when they could apply for DACA, they no longer have that opportunity".

"I think have you gone too far there", said Tarlov. "Where are they? We are ready to make a deal!"

Blanc, who was once undocumented herself, said she had "a moral obligation" to be at the march. Donald Trump vigorously fought all the proposals other his own, which would have made relief for DREAMers conditional upon $25 billion for his border wall and an end to most family immigration.

The program lets young immigrants brought to the USA illegally as children, called Dreamers, temporarily stay in the country and get jobs.

Both found the decision to end DACA was likely "arbitrary and capricious" and ran afoul of the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), the statute that governs how federal agencies implement policy. I am waiting for the Dems, they are running for the hills!' DACA enrollees can now file to renew their DACA protections and be sheltered from deportation.

The crux of the difference in the rulings is that Titus admits the possibility that DACA itself is unconstitutional, as the almost identical Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) policy was already found to be by the U.S. Court of Appeals for Fifth Circuit.

U.S. Senator John Cornyn cosponsored the Secure and Succeed Act to offer the estimated 1.8 million "Dreamers" a pathway to citizenship.

We are still fighting, we still need a permanent solution, and we will continue to advocate. "(Lawmakers) are like 'Just push it back, it's just the DACA kids'".

› Immigrants who are accepted into the program and later get arrested face deportation to their home country.

DACA allows undocumented students to get federal work permits, a Social Security number, a driver's license and other documentation that allows them to have a job and pay taxes, which helps them finance their education.

Kevin, a DACA recipient and worldwide relations and global studies sophomore, said he feels like the federal government keeps getting distracted by other issues.

"Let's pray for and petition our elected leaders to find a way forward from this totally avoidable crisis and for our churches as they care for our neighbors in this new stage of uncertainty".
