Students Call Congress Members to Urge DACA Action Amid University Reassurances

WASHINGTON, D.C.: US President Donald Trump claimed on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) he was "ready to make a deal" protecting hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to the country illegally as children, as lawmakers missed an initial deadline for resolving their fate. They, too, are left behind by this court decision: Young people like Rosa Maria Hernandez, a 10-year-old with cerebral palsy who came to the a baby and was too young to apply.

Both DACA recipients' resident tuition and driving privileges were jeopardized by President Trump's decision to rescind the Obama-era program, effective Monday, March 5.

Titus repeatedly criticized Trump for his "occasionally disparaging remarks" about immigrants and other subjects, but said they weren't relevant to the legal issues surrounding the DACA rescission.

Dreamers and organizers said they want a pathway to citizenship for undocumented students and an estimated 12 million immigrants who live and work and call the United States home. "Back in the fall, when the declaration was made that DACA was ending, Cornell immediately said we will provide Cornell DACA-like route to admissions and financial aid".

"We are the standard bearers of liberty, justice and civil rights, and OR will remain a welcoming place for all that call our state home", she said.

"I want to say the support is for everyone".

Cornell graduate and undergraduate students participated in a national higher education call-in day on February 28 to urge Congress members to vote for a bipartisan solution that protects Dreamers from deportation.

Griffin was born with amniotic band syndrome, which eventually led to the amputation of his left hand at the age of four. Instead, there were maybe 10 times that number as Griffin's profile appears to be rising as high as his draft status.

"We want something that is permanent to ensure all of us have something for us and our families", Solorzano said.

Alsup also declared that renewal applications for DACA have to be accepted, but new applications do not. In fact, their lawyers have asked the U.S. Supreme Court to take the appeal out of order because, they argued, the federal judge's ruling halting the deportation of young people with DACA creates "a national emergency".

"This changed my life", Gomez said of obtaining her DACA status and work authorization.

This weekend, the Times Free Press reported that Fleischmann is now in favor of a more comprehensive fix. On Monday we reached that deadline, and in what has become a familiar, gut-wrenching reality for dreamers, Trump and Congress have failed to rise to the occasion.

"I feel I'm going to be at school one day and they're going to raid my house and my family will be taken away", he said. "I've lost my job and I've had to sit here in fear for the past six months watching Congress do nothing". If Congress doesn't act, it's expected the future of the program will ultimately be decided by the Supreme Court. "If you won't let us dream, we won't let you sleep!" protesters chanted. This business has grown into a huge industry that houses 440,000 immigrants a year in more than 200 prisons in sometimes awful conditions. Compared to two, three years ago, I saw optimism in people. Yanelly said she was lucky because the January court ruling allowed her to renew her status for another two years.

Advocates say Congress has until March 23 to pass a new federal budget and avoid another government shutdown.
