Many Human Rights watchdog organizations such as Human Right's Watch, are claiming that the removal of DACA is a humanitarian issue, since numerous Dreamers have never been to their parents native countries and have spent most of their lives as Americans. Get immigration opponents on the record, and let them face the wrath of most Americans, who want to embrace these good young people and make them officially our own. As inelegantly he handled the rescission, Trump is right to argue that this issue is much more appropriately the province of Congress. In January, I co-sponsored the Bar Removal of Individuals who Dream and Grow our Economy (BRIDGE) Act, which would provide "provisional protected presence" and employment authorization to DACA-eligible individuals for three years. Don't wait any longer. Recipients whose status expires after the March 5 deadline can not submit applications for renewal, and federal officials have stopped taking new applicants.
Among 1,976 United States citizens who participated in the poll, 54 percent said Congress should pass legislation allowing these illegal immigrants, referred to as Dreamers, to stay in the United States, with a path to eventual citizenship if they meet certain requirements.
Federal officials granted 95 initial DACA applications to residents of ME as of the first quarter of 2017. DACA protections have to be renewed every two years, and the majority of DACA holders are adults.
Many people look at this whole situation as just another chapter in a controversial presidency, but I will play the devil's advocate and look for the silver lining in all of this mess.

The Obama administration announced the creation of the program in June 2012, saying it would stop deporting and begin granting work permits to younger undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children.
Undocumented immigrants must have already contacted a USA employer before they can be legally allowed to enter. Then-candidate Trump campaigned on the promise of a "day one" repeal of DACA if he were elected. Trump and some conservative allies have said Obama abused his executive authority by offering so-called "Dreamers" - immigrants brought to the US illegally as children - temporary legal status without going through Congress.
