Trump put thousands of 'Dreamers' in limbo at the worst time

In New York City over fifty people engaging in non-violent civil disobedience were arrested in response to Trump's decision to repeal DACA.

US PRESIDENT Donald Trump has scrapped an amnesty for child immigrants which could see up to 800,000 residents deported unless Congress passes the rules into law in the next six months. Almost 75,000 Dreamers live in the state.

"Oddly, Canada stands to gain from what I'm starting to call the Trump dividend, in terms of the acquisition of human capital", Vancouver-based immigration lawyer Richard Kurland told CTV News.

Gov. Kim Reynolds is traveling to Israel on a trade mission, but she said during her weekly news conference yesterday that she agrees with the president's decision to end DACA and also that it's time Congress addressed immigration reform.

"Despite powerful evidence of the program's success, in six months, President Trump will withdraw our country's promise to these young people who know no other country than the United States as 'home, ' Scott said in a prepared statement".

The lawsuit filed in federal court in Brooklyn on Tuesday asked a judge to strike down as unconstitutional the president's action involving the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.

"They dream American dreams, they are as American as anybody else", Menendez said.

"We've talked about the value of our foreign-born labor and the value of getting their status to a legal status", Naerebout says.

Ferguson noted that DACA has allowed undocumented children to attend school and college and contribute to the state's economy.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions speaks on immigration at the Justice Department, Sept. 5, 2017, in Washington, DC.

"I used to be scared to share my status with my friends and my teachers, and I'm scared right now", she said. Sessions announced that the Trump administration plans to phase out the program with the intention of giving Congress a chance to act on immigration policy "should it so choose".

Rep. David Valadao, R-Hanford, said he believes that legislation can be passed to replace DACA.

Other attorneys general involved in the suit include those from New York, Massachusetts, Washington, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and Virginia. "It's nice to hear other members saying it".

Writing in the left-of-center magazine, The Intercept, journalist Ryan Grim argues that Trump is backpedaling because going after the "Dreamers" is not a winning move politically.

"The state right now is under a dark pall and it's not just the smoke from the fires, it is a dark pall of cruelty and inhumanity that has covered this land as a result of this president's willful, malicious bigotry", Inslee said. During his tenure the nation saw the deportation of 3.1 million individuals - notably more people than any previous presidential administration, Democratic or Republican.
