LA County to file Amicus Briefs in support of DACA

The hearing comes after the announcement that Trump will end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA program, which gives temporary legal immigration status to people who arrived in the USA illegally as children.

Maryland has joined three other states in suing the Trump administration over its termination of a program created to shield young undocumented immigrants from deportation, Attorney General Brian E. Frosh said Monday.

Former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced September 8 that she's suing President Donald Trump's administration to fight the president's controversial decision to repeal the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. University of Vermont President Tom Sullivan reassured DACA students that federal law protects them. Former President Barack Obama established the immigration policy in 2012 to allow certain illegal immigrants who entered the country as minors to receive renewable two-year periods of deferred action from deportation along with eligibility for work permits in the United States.

Trump killed Obama's executive order because, as Democratic Sen.

This is a hardline stance from Emory in support of DACA recipients. Legal experts have said court challenges to Trump's decision could face an uphill battle because a president typically has wide authority in implementing immigration policy.

Although the president says that he feels compassion for dreamers, he also says the needs of American citizens must come first. So I don't understand the premise behind it but I do know that we have so many young students and many worldwide students, we actually have 41 countries represented in our student population of just under 2,000. Still, polls show broad sympathy for DACA beneficiaries. The Trump administration announced last week that it will drawn down the program and that recipients will begin losing their status in March.

Hundreds are anticipated to gather September 13 at Veterans Park in downtown Painesville to protest President Donald Trump's September 5 announcement rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. "Dreamers need a permanent, legislative solution that provides a path to citizenship". There are 800,000 people involved in the DACA programme and a quarter of this group live in California.

Even some Republicans quickly threw their support behind legislation that would clean up Trump's mess and enact protections for the hundreds of thousands of Dreamers now at risk.
