DACA deadline passes by without clear path forward

DEC. 6 2017 FILE Activists March In DC To Jump-Start Stalled DACA Talks
Ray Hunter | 07 March, 2018, 00:11

Congress has yet to come up with a solution for the DACA Act, and if they can't, the future of thousands will lie in the hands of the Federal court. It gives work permits to immigrants brought to the US illegally as children. Trump ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, previous year but gave Congress until March 5 to resurrect it.

"The US is also our home and we love it just as much as our countries of origin". To say that we dreamers are disappointed in our elected representatives would be an understatement.

A letter signed by 700 college and university presidents in September 2016, including then Interim President Hunter Rawlings III, said, "to our country's leaders we say that DACA should be upheld, continued, and expanded".

"I want to say the support is for everyone". We want people to have a voice.

"One day I'll hear they are fixing DACA and the next day it's on hold", said Jimena Vazquez, a 16-year-old Lincoln High School student who was born here but whose sister is a DACA recipient and student at UC Santa Barbara.

Congress has failed to reach any sort of consensus about a permanent solution for Dreamers. La Avenida now employs two undocumented immigrants-a dishwasher and a busboy-who failed to apply for DACA in time, and are therefore in danger of being deported. She said her life is here in the US and it makes no sense to her that the government is not taking care of her and her people.

Complexities of Stormy Daniels' Payout Mean Trump Likely Knew About It
Cohen last month acknowledged that he made the payment, and denied it violated any campaign finance laws. Cohen has claimed the cash was his own way to help Trump by making Daniels' "false" claim disappear.

Lawmakers had every opportunity to legislate a fix, but the fate of the Dreamers has proved too divisive for Congress to resolve.

About 100 people demonstrated in front of the state Capitol on Monday to urge Congress to take action to give the almost 800,000 DACA recipients in the United States - almost 11,300 in OR - a permanent legal path to live, study and work in the country where they grew up.

Jared Steiman, Gomez's husband and a USA citizen who helped organize Saturday's rally, is part of the group in Washington this week. I'm only one of millions of immigrants who believe in this country, but I want the president and members of Congress to understand exactly why. Where are they? We are ready to make a deal!'

"[The Trump administration] sort of threw a hail mary, a long shot at the Supreme Court because they knew the Ninth Circuit was going to rule against [ending DACA] because the Ninth Court is the most liberal court in the country", Hacking said. This business has grown into a huge industry that houses 440,000 immigrants a year in more than 200 prisons in sometimes disgusting conditions.

"I am an undocumented grad student, so I've been always active", first-year communications doctoral student Monica Cornejo said.

"Today's decision also highlights a serious problem with the disturbing growth in the use of nationwide injunctions, which causes the Maryland court's correct judgment in favor of the government to be undermined by the overbroad injunctions that have been entered by courts in other states", O'Malley said. CNN suggested that lawmakers may try to pass legislation on the issue by March 23, the next government funding deadline, but sources involved in the process said that an agreement was unlikely.
