Last week, the Trump Administration announced that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) would be phased out after six months and urged Congress to legislate a replacement before then.

"We are going to continue to offer a DREAM loan program", she says, "and we are going to continue our directive to our campus police that they are not to serve as surrogate immigration agents".

Western has provided a world-class education since the University opened its doors on September 23, 1902, and we will continue to provide that quality educational experience for all students, regardless of their backgrounds.

To receive work permits under DACA, applicants must have come to the USA before age 16, lived in the country continuously, be attending or have completed school or served in the military, and have no criminal record.

Schneiderman noted that 42,000 NY residents would be impacted by the termination of DACA, and added that the president's actions were fueled by prejudice. Why should a piece of legislation that seeks to make life better for people be casted out and replaced with nothing, casting those who are affected most into a storm of worry and anxiety.

Trump said the Department of Homeland Security will issue renewals to the program for the next six months, but no new applications will be accepted. President Donald Trump took an oath to uphold the law and, more particularly, the Constitution.

They would have a "behind-the-counter" system, similar to how tobacco is sold now, to ensure age restrictions are enforced. Under the Ontario plan, all private dispensaries will be shut down and smoking pot will be forbidden in all public areas.

We can not be a country that promises the "American Dream" to all, only to pull the rug out from under them.

Basi said there are fewer than 10 DACA students attending MU.

The tweet is consistent with what the White House said earlier in the week on the phase-out of the program, but immigrants enrolled in it are still on edge. With Trump's decision to rescind what Obama legalized five years ago, more than 800,000 DACA recipients, otherwise known as Dreamers, are now facing possible deportation.

"I think we always knew DACA was not a long-term solution", Alvarez said. They believed they were in a country that cared about them and that was willing to take steps to give them the opportunity to become contributing members. Many are in the military or in college, learning the knowledge and skills the American economy demands.

"Rescinding the work permits of nearly 800,000 people and forcing them into the shadows is reckless economic policy", the chamber said in a release.

Although Tennessee Attorney General Herbert Slatery III was one of the ten attorney generals to push for Trump to end DACA, he chose to step back from the suit right before Trump made his decision, citing a human element as the cause.
