Ending the 'Dreamers' Program Could Cost Hundreds of Thousands of Jobs

DACA, established by executive action in 2012 by President Barack ObamaBarack ObamaTrump defends pardoning former Sheriff Arpaio OPINION: Trump, strike a deal: Trade border wall funding for DACA protections Rand Paul slams Trump reversal on military gear for local police MORE, allows nearly 800,000 individuals who entered the country illegally as minors to stay in the US and obtain work permits.

Hundreds of U.S. activists and immigrants have marched in New York City to express their resentment against President Donald Trump's plan to scrap a program that prevents the deportation of certain illegal immigrants who entered the country as minors.

Forcing the issue is the fact that attorneys general in 10 states threatened to sue the government unless the Trump administration starts to dismantle the program by September 5. In addition, both Hernandez and Escalante tell us that concerned citizens can contact their representatives and senators in Congress, and ask them to stop Trump from rescinding DACA. "Or is there anything else that we can do for the individual based on their circumstances?" she said.

Meanwhile, activists supporting DACA have been mounting a furious lobbying effort, operating phone banks, meeting with lawmakers, sending letters and staging protests to draw attention to the fate of what are undoubtedly the most sympathetic immigrants living in the country illegally. He promised to end DACA on the campaign trail. Now Mr. Trump appears on the brink of ending the program in response to that deadline. "But you have some absolutely incredible kids, I would say mostly", he said. Now Ms. Alvarez fears this week will bring another such announcement, only this time it will jeopardize everything she has worked to achieve. According to Fox News, a senior administration official said that the immigration program could end as early as Friday.

The 10 attorneys general challenging DACA recommended in late June that the administration phase out the program. The recently introduced stand-alone Dream Act of 2017 would do that and we support it. Even Mr. Trump has said that people brought to the country as children were special cases who should be treated "with heart".

During a meeting with DualShockers , Greenberg said that such titles will have a lasting and beneficial impact for Xbox One . After opening preorders last Sunday, Microsoft now says the Xbox One X is the "fastest-selling Xbox pre-order ever".

Trump's immigration policies have sparked protests both inside the United States and overseas since he took office in January.

Now in the hands of the Trump administration, the future of the DACA program is unclear as are the futures of the program's eligible participants.

Ruiz said DACA recipients should be in contact with immigration authorities to figure out their rights.

Borovska said if DACA is scrapped, many Dreamers will leave their traditional jobs and form their own businesses to work as independent contractors.

In his op-ed, Reif notes that he himself is an immigrant - a native of Venezuela who came to the U.S.as a graduate student in 1974, and has since become a USA citizen.
