Activists attend a march for immigrant rights in Los Angeles. Ending DACA would cost the state more than $91 million in annual GDP losses, would remove an estimated 685,000 workers from the US economy and would result in the loss of $460.3 billion in GDP nationwide over the next 10 years, according to the Interfaith Worker Justice fact sheet.

"Rep. Kinzinger and the others, ". write in support of passing of a permanent legislative solution for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients before the end of the year". Carrion didn't qualify for numerous public grants but was able to attend Whitman College on private scholarships.

Carrion moved back to Mexico in 2008.

The Hispanic Alliance hosted a DACA Summit on Saturday with speakers including Mayor Steve Adler and U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-El Paso, to discuss the future of DACA recipients and the DREAM Act. Carrion returned to the U.S.in 2012 and obtained legal residency through marriage.

"I was 11 months old", Diaz said.

Democratic leaders, under pressure from a base that's made this a top issue, say they won't leave Washington without a DACA fix in place this year.

The fact that Carrion left the USA after earning his degree is exactly why Washington Technology Industry Association CEO Michael Schutzler thinks immigration reform is so imperative. "We hope the president will go into this meeting with an open mind, rather than deciding that an agreement can't be reached beforehand", the pair said in a joint statement. Shooting yourself in the head is catastrophic. "We care for our families and that's the foundation of what this country is all about".

Schutzler was joined by OneAmerica Executive Director Rich Stolz and Remitly CFO Krish Srinivasan on the panel.

As part of the campaign, the NAE released updated data about immigrants' contributions to Louisiana's economy. Around 38,000 San Diegans were eligible for the program.

And in addition to paying taxes, immigrants bolster Utah's workforce.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions labeled the program unconstitutional, an overreach by former President Barack Obama, to start DACA without Congress's stamp of approval.

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 USA illegally when they were children. That deadline is in March, though immigration advocates say a solution is needed by the end of the year because it will take several months to implement the new program. However, no President can simply side-step Congress and create immigration laws on his or her own.

The latest effort to pass pro-American immigration reforms - such as halving legal immigration down to 500,000 immigrants a year by ending the process of "chain migration" where new immigrants being allowed to bring their foreign relatives to the US - is coupled with an amnesty for DACA illegal aliens.

Government sophomore Vanessa Rodriguez, also a DACA recipient, said she has been saving as much money as possible, not knowing how much longer she will be able to work. "Sometimes, you know, I used to coach kids, so I was the coach of the kids".
