Obama slams DACA decision as 'cruel,' says it's 'about basic decency'

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Tuesday that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, an Obama-era initiative that shielded young undocumented immigrants from deportation, will end. "Thus, in effect, I am not going to just cut DACA off, but rather provide a window of opportunity for Congress to finally act". If Congress acts to protect DACA recipients, they will likely do so with a bill such as the DREAM Act which has been introduced in Congress, but never enacted.

But the administration's policy, officials confirmed, is that anyone who is in the US illegally should be prepared to no longer remain here.

"At a time when our nation is struggling with high unemployment and runaway government spending, this bill would authorize millions of illegal workers and impose an even greater burden on taxpayers", he said on the Senate floor. He's running against U.S. Sen.

"To let them know you are not alone, you are supported by the teachers at the teach-in and many others have your back in any way we can", said Macias. Replacement legislation is unlikely to pass without additional immigration enforcement provisions, such as increased border security or ways to crack down on sanctuary cities.

"We should not be targeting young people who are working, going to school, paying taxes and participating in this country - the country they grew up in and the only home they've ever known", said a statement Brown released on Sunday.

In June 2012, it was stated that in order to be eligible for DACA, a person must have come to this country before age 16, lived here continuously for five years, been present in the country at the time the memo was issued, not have committed a felony or a "significant" misdemeanor, and not have committed "multiple misdemeanor offenses". It won't be easy but we are looking for a legislative solution.

In addition to DACA, Congress will have to raise the debt ceiling, ensure government funding beyond the end of the month, renew key federal programs and come up with an aid package to deal with the devastation of Hurricane Harvey.

Officials said that while DACA is being rescinded, USCIS will retain the immigration records records for recipients.

Lasso says he knew the end of DACA was a "big possibility" ever since Trump's election, but now he is confronted with the reality of the program's cancellation. If March 2018 arrives without action from Congress, he'll have to start worrying about what will happen to his family if he's deported to Ecuador.

"I can't just go and leave my mother here, I'm what's driving us, supporting us", Lasso said.

"The Church has recognized and proclaimed the need to welcome young people: "Whoever welcomes one of these children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me" (Mark 9:37)".
