GOP senators introduce bill to provide pathway to citizenship for Dreamers

Trump plays left and right in drive to protect ‘Dreamers

"There have been other immigration policies over the years that are a part of our immigrations laws that protect people from other countries, so this wouldn't be something that's out of the ordinary". Those protected under DACA have until October 5th to renew their permit so they would be able to stay in the USA for two more years. It's basically a congressional equivalent of DACA: It would allow the people who met the requirements of DACA to be protected from deportation and work legally in the U.S. for the next three years.

"Dreamers have greatly contributed to our country", they continued.

The policy, favored by many USA conservatives, was ended in Obama's previous year in office.

Having rescinded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the Obama-era order that granted dreamers relief from deportation, Mr. Trump has shifted the fate of almost 700,000 young immigrants to Congress. Congress has proved itself inept lately on many fronts, but here is one issue teed up and ready-made for success.

DACA Dreamers residing in Houston are now being assisted by Catholic Charities, who conduct multiple workshops every week to help participants find financial aid or help them complete their requirements, Click2Houston reports.

Arnoldo Valencia is one of many who showed up, and said they were grateful for the help.

Homeland Security hasn't gotten any complaints that natural disasters are affecting the ability of Dreamers to apply for a quick renewal of their DACA status, the department's acting secretary told Congress on Wednesday.

"I can't remember if I was 7 or 8 when we moved here", Gonzalez said. A 23-year-old who writes poetry.

"You're in limbo", said Perez, who works at a vehicle wash and hopes to open his own business soon.

The county has adopted resolutions reaffirming its stance on safeguarding all citizens and supporting Senate Bill 54, commonly referred to as the "sanctuary state bill", and introduced a pro-bono legal services program to represent children who have fled violent conditions in their home countries and have been detained at the border and placed into deportation proceedings. Those whose permits expire starting on March 6 will not be able to renew. As previously announced, for recipients whose DACA and work authorization expire between September 5, 2017, and March 5, 2018, inclusive, USCIS will continue to accept renewal requests through October 5, 2017.

Ryan said her organization has so far helped about 200 DACA recipients file renewal applications since the Trump administration's announcement.

"If I were to be deported, that would be complete fear", Gonzalez said.

Attorney Patricia Ice is with Mississippi Immigrants Rights Alliance. They've demanded a nationwide delay. There are shortages of teachers, nurses, high-technology workers and many others, and DACA recipients are becoming nurses, teachers, first responders and engineers.

"At the government level, certainly at the federal level, we have done just a frightful job in terms of figuring out immigration and letting people flounder and not understanding processes going forward", the Petaluma resident said while addressing a sizable crowd gathered at the Lucchesi Park community center.

"I've been here all my life", said Moreno, who lives in Los Angeles. "I'm concerned about what he might come up with in terms of border security and the rest of that, but we have said no wall". Community colleges supply workforce training, basic skills courses in English and math, and prepare students for transfer to four-year universities. The program requires DREAMEers to fill out a lengthy application and pay $465 every two years to maintain their status.

Gaytan said he hopes to go on to become a professor or immigration lawyer after graduation but knows he'll need a work permit to do so.

Judge Garaufis quoted the tweet as he suggested to the lawyer who argued on the government's behalf that Trump himself apparently wanted to save DACA and should be allowed to do so without imposing a strict and arbitrary deadline, the Times said.
