DACA participant challenges Trump move in court

Trump, Congress playing immigration chicken with Dreamers | Opinion

They said the program was on shaky legal ground and would not have survived legal challenges in the courts.

In front of the cameras on Tuesday, Sessions sounded much like his old self. "President Trump has again gone back on his word and through this action be adding to a long list of decisions which cruelly attack which Trump attacked throughout the campaign trail".

"In effect, I am not going to just cut DACA off, but rather provide a window of opportunity for Congress to finally act", Trump said. Failure to enforce the laws in the past has put our nation at risk of crime, violence and even terrorism.

The acting chief of the Department of Homeland Security, Elaine Duke, said "the administration's decision to terminate DACA was not taken lightly". A senior Justice official flatly denied any communication between Sessions and the states, but shortly after the threat was issued in June, Sessions spoke favorably of the effort on Fox News.

In a letter to US Judge Nicholas G. Garaufis of the US Court for the Eastern District of NY, lawyers for the National Immigration Law Center argue that the termination violated federal law that forbids "arbitrary and capricious" agency action.

Prior to the President's decision, more than 640 college and university presidents signed on to a letter of support for DACA.

Representative Mark Meadows, chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, acknowledged on Tuesday evening that conservatives probably did not have the votes to stop a measure combining Harvey aid with a debt ceiling hike.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said he is prepared to sue the Trump administration over the latest decision.

Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, the No. 2 Senate Republican, said if Trump truly wants a comprehensive immigration reform package, including a solution for the 11 million immigrants in the country illegally, he's certain to be disappointed.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Tuesday that Sessions was chosen to make the announcement because of the legal analysis that went into it.

Despite former RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan's warning, Govt. demonetized currency overnight
In September past year , Rajan, just a few months before the demonetisation was announced, left the RBI and joined the academia. Rajan, however, stated that the intent of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) regarding demonetisation was good.

Harvard said it does not consider immigration status as part of its admissions and financial aid process.

"DACA recipients are brought to this country as children - they're our classmates, our colleagues, our service members, they've established their lives here and often have little or no connection to their country of origin", Sharuk said.

Peter Nunez, former USA attorney: "The pro-dreamers, the pro-illegal alien crowd, whatever he did they were going to be opposed to".

Additionally, she stressed the immediate need for DACA recipients whose work permits expire in the next six months to submit renewal application to United States Citizenship and Immigration Services before October 5 in order to buy time before DACA expires. That move is created to give Congress six months to act to preserve the program legislatively.

The president has his heart set on his wall and keeping more people out of the country. Rescinding DACA was "cruel", he said on Twitter, but "will also damage our economy and reduce GDP by hundreds of billions of dollars".

A group of Republican attorney generals threatened to attack DACA in a lawsuit if President Donald Trump didn't revoke it by September 5.

"I worked really hard to get where I am", said Leonor, who traveled to Washington to protest the decision. "I think also it would signal that America is not welcoming of a place as we argue that it is, and it's going to show that some privileges people will never be able to accomplish because it's been taken away by the federal government".

And then Tuesday night, with a new tweet, Trump opened door to further executive action.

Currently, 800,000 people benefit from DACA, which the Obama administration enacted in 2012 in the absence of comprehensive immigration reform.
