Senate Judiciary Committee to hold DACA hearing on Wednesday

Senate Judiciary Committee to hold DACA hearing on Wednesday

On Monday, California, Maine, Maryland, and Minnesota tossed a fourth lawsuit onto a pile of federal cases that seek to block President Trump from ending DACA, a program created under former President Obama that allows roughly 800,000 young undocumented immigrants to remain in the United States.

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) protects young people brought to the United States as children from the threat of deportation.

Moving forward, I will never use the dehumanizing terminology of "DACA recipients", as I will explain below.

Napolitano also noted how the Trump administration failed to justify a dramatic shift on the lawfulness of DACA when the Office of Legal Counsel under the Justice Department had deemed DACA was lawful.

"It is our honest hope that bipartisan legislation to protect DACA is swiftly adopted to alleviate fears and uncertainty DACA students and their families are experiencing", Leah L. Bornstein, president of Aims, said in the statement. Washington state Attorney General Bob Ferguson, who along with 15 other attorneys general across the country filed a lawsuit last week to protect DACA grantees, says losing DACA would economically hinder the state, placing an unfair burden on small businesses that have trained and employed numerous almost 18,000 DACA recipients in the state.

Census Bureau: Median Incomes Climbing for First Time Since 2007
Among the 31 states and the District of Columbia that expanded Medicaid, the uninsured rate is just 6.5 percent. Only two states - Texas and Alaska - have uninsured rates over 14 percent, the Census Bureau said .

"Rescinding the work permits of nearly 800,000 people and forcing them into the shadows is reckless economic policy", the chamber said in a release.

IL has roughly 42,000 DACA recipients.

"We have a serious issue; we have to fix this", said Lopez. Even though California is not among the states that have filed suit against the Trump Administration so far, one may be forthcoming.

As of recently, this program, which provides a renewable two-year period of deferment from deportation to individuals who came to this country illegally as minors, had more than 800,000 enrollees. All Californians should feel a sense of pride that their top officials are making it clear that California has their backs. According to Becerra, President Trump's order violates the Constitution and would have a negative impact on California's economy.

"The courts must act or Congress must act to settle this matter once and for all", said the UC president. John McCain said in the quote, "I strongly believe that children who were illegally brought into this country through no fault of their own should not be forced to return to a country they do not know" in a statement (CNBC.com). This can be a time of major stress, and it was especially so in the days leading up to Attorney General Jeff Sessions' announcement that the program would be rescinded. If Congress chooses to act, I hope that it resolves it because only Congress can resolve this in a permanent way.
