Louisiana would be hard hit if DACA comes to an end

The policy permits those who came into the USA illegally as minors to receive a renewable two-year deferred action from deportation and eligibility to work legally in the U.S. NPR's Kelsey Snell has more from Capitol Hill.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: It could happen. "The Democrats are really looking for something that is very unsafe to our country". In this time of crisis, we must be opening the doors to our classrooms rather than shutting them down.

Illinois Coalition for Immigrant and Refugee Rights member Lawrence Benito said that "i$3 n Illinois, the futures of more than 41,000 documented people and their families are up in the air, so every day that congress delays action to protect immigrants, more people are in danger of being deported". Yesterday, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer was downplaying the threat of a shutdown. There are good negotiations occurring between Democrats and Republicans to come up with a good DACA program as well as some good border security.

Congressman Bruce Poliquin (ME-02) is calling on Congress to find a permanent legislative solution for DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, before the end of December. Therefore, the Armenian Council of America urges Congress to take action and immediately pass S. 1615, the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act, also known as the Dream Act.

Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin, D-IL, quickly rejected Cornyn's plan a few hours after Cornyn described it on the Senate floor, calling it a "laundry list of unrelated immigration bills" created to "delay and stop any serious bipartisan effort" to find a DACA solution by the end of the year.

Activists and Democratic leaders immediately decried the legislation.

"Put bluntly", Sharry continued, "the Grassley-Cornyn bill says, 'give us everything we want in exchange for nearly nothing you want, deal?'"

"Dreamers" are immigrants who were brought to the United States illegally as children.

"At a minimum we need to pass something like the Bridge Act", said Coffman. Democrats don't have much leverage in Congress, but one place they do have a lot of power is over a spending bill.

She has talked with restaurant owners who said they would keep their establishments open longer if they had enough employees, she said. Democrats could demand an immigration deal in exchange for their votes.

Senator John Cornyn, a Republican from Texas, is a member of the Senate Finance, Intelligence, and Judiciary Committees. It is also a fact that CIS, FAIR, NumbersUSA, IRLI and CAPS have direct ties to white nationalists, want to end all immigration, and are threatening the wellbeing of myself and other Dreamers in order to enact a radical anti-immigrant agenda.

JEREMY ROBBINS: This is not a hard policy issue. Many represent large Latino populations, and urged their own leaders to find a DACA solution before they return to their districts later this month. "But I don't think we ought to just do that".

"I realized I didn't have opportunities to work legally in this country, so I left", Carrion told GeekWire at a Seattle event hosted by Remitly, a company that enables worldwide money transfers, as part of a broader effort to pressure Congress to act on DACA.

The Colcom Foundation presently provides generous donations to these organizations, and according to the Center for New Community's resource Who's Behind the Plot Against DACA, have since 2006, pumped more than $53 million into the anti-immigrant movement.
