GOP Lawmakers to Ryan: Save DACA Beneficiaries Before End of the Year

GOP Lawmakers to Ryan: Save DACA Beneficiaries Before End of the Year

He adores the schools and streets.

DACA provides protection from deportation to some 700,000 immigrants who were brought into the United States illegally as children.

On Tuesday, 34 House Republicans, including several members of the Republican Main Street Caucus, sent a letter urging Speaker Paul Ryan to put a permanent solution for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives before the end of the year.

Congress is considering several immigration-reform proposals after President Donald Trump had announced in September that the DACA program would be phased out, and told Congress to find a permanent solution for Dreamers.

Now he worries that he'll lose everything - that he'll have to abandon his two younger siblings who were born here; that his pursuit of a double major in physics and computer science at the University of Houston will be cut short; that he'll be forced to move to a odd country where he knows no one.

"In general, I know the sentiments that people have, and it hurts because this is all I've known", said Lopez, a Nobody Leaves Mid-Hudson volunteer.

Garcia Hernandez, a Law Professor at the University of Denver, said there's a push to pass the DREAM Act before the end of the year.

"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", John Feinblatt, president of New American Economy (NAE) said in a statement emailed to the Louisiana Record.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), who is often cited as one of the Democrats who would vote against government funding over the DACA fix, did not give a yes or no answer when asked whether she would be willing to support a bill without Dreamer measures. "'You realize Dreamers can be just like you".

The Aberdeen manager has been linked with taking over at Ibrox ever since Pedro Caixinha was sacked in October. But it's not just McInnes' future that could rest on the next few days.

"The concern is that we're fast approaching an election year and the pressure will only increase on Republicans in particular to curry their base and to not make any compromises", Hernandez said. "We are all Dreamers". She, too, was brought to the U.S.as a child from Mexico, and like Angeles was unsure how she'd ever afford college.

We live in the age of migration: more people are crossing borders than any other time in human history. Still, DACA changed things, she said.

"I'm your neighbor. I'm your friend", said community organizer Alfredo Pacheco.

While DACA allowed young illegal immigrants to go to school and work in the US, it did not grant them the status they desperately needed. Your parents both have green cards now.

On Monday, Texas Sen.

Activists and Democratic leaders immediately decried the legislation.

"I came to the US when I was a year and a half", Karla Jimenez said.

Groups like the Center for Immigration Studies, Federation for American Immigration Reform, NumbersUSA, Immigration Reform Law Institute and Californians for Population Stabilization want people to think they support finding a compassionate and sensible solution for Dreamers, but how can they when for years they have attacked us and other immigrants through backdoor legal assaults and draconian legislative demands.

"There is no way our industry can be successful as we can be without these people", Melva Sine, president and CEO of Utah Restaurant Association said.
