Shutting Down the Government for Dreamers May Be Risky for Democrats

Shutting Down the Government for Dreamers May Be Risky for Democrats

"There's a growing chorus with a simple message for Congress - step up and fix our broken immigration system, starting with a fix for Dreamers", NAE President John Feinblatt told Illinois Business Daily.

Five House Republicans from Pennsylvania are among almost three-dozen GOP lawmakers asking House Speaker Paul Ryan to hold a vote this month on legislation dealing with the fate of 800,000 people who were brought to the US illegally when they were children.

The House Republicans who signed the letter acknowledged those asks, but said the urgency of DACA recipients' circumstances warranted immediate action. "Sometimes, you know, I used to coach kids, so I was the coach of the kids".

Snyder, who has called himself the most pro-immigrant governor in the country, said he has joined the "Dream Coalition" in support of DACA-eligible immigrants.

Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) released the following statement on legislation: "Neither Senator Cornyn nor Senator Grassley has ever voted for the Dream Act".

There are some 10,500 Dreamers in Utah, said organizer Talitha Nascimento.

Many need to learn English to reclaim the positions they held as doctors and dentists in their home countries.

Tania Ruiz, 24, is a Dreamer who came to this country when she was 5 years old with her mother, father and three sisters.

One of those students, Fatima Yesenia Diaz, 21, said she was brought to California at age 11.

Indeed, five Senate Democrats and 25 House Democrats have publicly vowed not to vote for any spending legislation - even a short-term stopgap measure like the one Republicans are trying to engineer before the last stopgap bill expires this Friday - that does not include protection for Dreamers.

"My hope for the future is for everyone to understand what we have been through", Ruiz said. They must have continuously lived in the United States since June 15, 2007; must now being in school or an honorably discharged military veteran; must have a clean criminal record; and not have lawful immigration status.

"We're going to have to come up with a negotiated outcome that demonstrates our compassion for these young adults who came here as children, through no fault of their own, and now find themselves trapped". It also requires they pay taxes. The status was to be renewed every two years.

DACA will make no renewals after March 6, and Love said Congress must act quickly. And so absolutely we think there should be a solution now. "Myself and 1,700 DACA recipients in Congressman Ami Bera's district want to give back". IRLI's Kris Kobach has fretted that Latino immigrants could commit "ethnic cleansing", and CAPS President Ben Zuckerman recently advocated for "a prompt stabilization of the US population".

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was enacted by President Barack Obama in 2012.

U.S. Reps. Charlie Dent, Brian Fitzpatrick, Ryan Costello, Pat Meehan, and G.T. Thompson, all Pennsylvania Republicans, signed on to a letter dated Tuesday addressing the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.
