Good Riddance to DAPA-but DACA Should Be Next

19 June 2017

In at least a temporary reversal of one of his most vile campaign promises, Donald Trump has apparently made a decision to allow DREAMers - young people who were brought here illegally by their parents as children - to stay in the country, at least for the time being.

"We hope President Trump now will keep his entire promise by ordering an end to the Obama Administration's other unconstitutional amnesty, the DACA program which continues to issues new work permits to those here illegally", Chmielenski said.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) ended the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) program yesterday (June 15)-before undocumented parents had a chance to take advantage of it.

DAPA was blocked by the courts from implementation, which the Department of Homeland Security cited as a reason for rescinding the program.

The immigration policy was first announced by former President Barack Obama back in the fall of 2014.

The protection program for parents, like the one for young immigrants, was created with a policy memo during the Obama administration.

Therefore, Kelly announced that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program also known as DACA would remain unaltered.

"It's very, very 'wishy-washy.' We don't really know what he's going to do", said Maria, referring to Thursday's announcement by the Trump administration to continue the 5-year program granting temporary legal status to about 800,000 people. These are immigrants who arrived here before age 16, and in many cases much younger, and have not been convicted of multiple or serious crimes.

"But my future is still in their hands and undecided", she said.

Immigration lawyer David Leopold commented, "This is a big victory for Dreamers amid months of draconian and mean-spirited immigration enforcement policy". DACA allows these young, undocumented immigrants to obtain work permits and drivers licenses, and protects them from deportation.

Condoling the incident earlier, Londor Mayor Sadiq Khan said, "The bad news, I'm afraid, is lots of people died in the fire". Hundreds have been left homeless, putting more pressure on officials in a city plagued by a chronic housing shortage.

After the news that the DACA program would remain in force broke out, reactions started pouring in from both sides of the#Immigration debate.

The DACA program stipulates measures that would protect young immigrants while Congress considers wider immigration legislation that will be ringing about the desired changes to the DACA legislation.

The Trump DHS did revoke a never-implemented Obama program that would have expanded DACA rights to parents of minors brought into the country illegally.

President Trump's administration officially canceled an immigration program that was proposed during the Obama-era.
