Immigration Patriots 'Thrilled' About Trump Tossing Out DAPA

Author

That program deferred deportation actions against undocumented children, known as Dreamers, and extended work authorization permits for DACA-eligible recipients from two to three years.

"While the Trump administration has left the DACA program in place for now, their enforcement actions and policy decisions continue to create fear and anxiety in immigrant communities", Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) chairwoman Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-NM) said in a press release provided to Teen Vogue. A federal judge in Texas blocked the move after 26 states sued on the grounds that the policy would create an illegal immigration loophole.

Therefore, Kelly announced that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program also known as DACA would remain unaltered. The decision was noted at the bottom of an administration statement announcing the end of another Obama-era immigration program. At the same time, Trump accepted the Obama's 2012 order that offered US citizenship to 800,000 undocumented immigrants who entered the country at an early age.

"DAPA would have - based on some of the numbers i've seen - benefited about 3.7 million individuals in the USA who are undocumented", he said.

President Trump promised during the 2016 election campaign to eliminate DACA, but White House officials were quick to point out Friday that the decision to uphold DACA is not a guarantee that the program will exist in the future. Their announcement to keep DACA, while revoking DAPA and deporting family members is deceitful and is another effort to keep immigrant families feeling uncomfortable about their place in America.

The Trump administration fulfilled another campaign promise Thursday night when it ended an Obama-era program that gave legal status to undocumented parents of American children. Many have lived in the United States since they were very young and have little to no recollection of their birth countries. This program also came about under Obama and provides deportation protection and work authorization for immigrant youth who came to the United States illegally before the age of 16.

The Trump administration "now says it won't go backward on DACA", said Cecillia Wang, deputy legal director at the American Civil Liberties Union, in a tweet.

In a late-Thursday night briefing, Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly announced that he had revoked an Obama-era order that would have prevented the deportation of any undocumented parents of millions of US citizens. In some of the cases they're having DACA and they're gang members and they're drug dealers too. However, deportations have slightly gone down as less number of people has been caught crossing the Mexican border illegally.

Upon taking office in January, Trump has been coy as to whether he would seek to remove "dreamers" from the U.S.
