UC leaders blast ending DACA, pledge support for undocumented immigrant students

Lorella Praeli, director of immigration policy and campaigns at the American Civil Liberties Union, said Trump's action had "injected chaos and uncertainty into thousands of workplaces and communities across America".

Vivian Garcia Cruz, 18, a self-described DACA student speaks at a rally in St. Louis' Kiener Plaza on Tuesday, Sept. 5, 2017, as supporters of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals gather to voice their opposition to President Trump's decision to end the federal program from the Obama administration.

The Obama administration created the DACA program in 2012 as a stopgap as it pushed unsuccessfully for a broader immigration overhaul in Congress.

Hundreds of protesters gathered outside the White House yesterday demonstrating against Trump. It is Trump who is setting in motion a disruptive and fear-inducing measure that affects 800,000 or so young people brought here as children.

"There are people who came here from Asian countries, African countries, European countries, obviously people who crossed the southern border from Mexico to California, but the population of DACA recipients (is) very diverse", said Richard Konda, with the Asian Law Alliance.

Meanwhile, police arrested about a dozen "DREAMers" and civil rights activists in NY on Tuesday during a protest that paralyzed Fifth Avenue in front of Trump Tower here.

Prince Hisahito is now third in line to the throne after his uncle, Crown Prince Naruhito, and his father Prince Akishino . The news of their engagement was reported in May by the Japan Times and later confirmed by the Imperial Household Agency.

"We love Dreamers. We love everybody", Trump said on Friday. Marques said in a statement.

On Friday, Ron Gleason shared on his Facebook page, "I'm going to the square in downtown Tyler to make a silent statement on behalf of the Dreamers who are in the DACA program. At the same time, DACA was just kind of a temporary fix while Congress fixed the legal immigration process". She's used her deferred action status to get a job that helps pay for college, where she is studying biotechnology. "Many of them have started businesses". "It is particularly cruel to offer young people the American Dream, encourage them to come out of the shadows and trust our government, and then punish them for it".

The sources said Trump's six-month extension is aimed at pressuring Congress to protect the Dreamers through legislation. But it will hardly insulate him from mass protests and legal challenges from state officials, as advocates press for sanctuary for all migrants nationwide. "Societies where the rule of law is subject to political whims and personal biases tend to become societies afflicted by corruption, poverty and human suffering", he said.

ABC's Mary Bruce was the only one reporter for the network to find any time to mention those who opposed DACA. "Is how we can have a well-rounded class at our University that has a number of experiences, whether that be income diversity or diversity of skin color, and this would greatly deteriorate that", Virginia Chambers, second-year College student and University Democrats Communications Coordinator, said. If he has any doubt about that, he should discuss it with his fellow New Yorker, Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-NY), who grew up in this country undocumented and now proudly represents the people of New York's 13th congressional district on Capitol Hill. "There is also a strong sense that the community and the undocumented community members themselves can push back against this decision".

Reynoso's 16-year-old daughter attends John Tyler High School and has many friends who are DACA recipients.

"As the attorney general, it is my duty to ensure that the laws of the United States are enforced and the constitutional order is upheld", Sessions said. "It wasn't just an act of grace from Obama's administration. And the leader has made the decision to attach the debt limit to that, and I support that", Cornyn told a group of reporters, according to The Hill.
