Immigrant rally urges Congress to resolve fate of 'Dreamers'

Immigrant rally urges Congress to resolve fate of 'Dreamers'

He adores the schools and streets.

DACA is an Obama-era policy that permits those who came into the US illegally as minors to receive a renewable two-year deferred action from deportation and eligibility to work legally in the U.S.

Congress has until March to find a solution after President Donald Trump rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.

Now he worries that he'll lose everything - that he'll have to abandon his two younger siblings who were born here; that his pursuit of a double major in physics and computer science at the University of Houston will be cut short; that he'll be forced to move to a unusual country where he knows no one.

"I'm happy to have that negotiation today, or tomorrow, or December 31, or January or February", he said on a press call with Texas media Wednesday. "It's not that I don't love Mexico and hold it dear, it's just not home". The Dream Act is a vital step toward a more rational and humane immigration policy.

At UH, volunteers with the national Inside Out/Dreamers Project on Tuesday covered a few walls of the university student union with large, black and white photos of immigrant students, documented and not. "We care for our families and that's the foundation of what this country is all about". "'You realize Dreamers can be just like you".

"We were kind of in limbo", Jimenez said. "We are all Dreamers". And your younger sisters are US citizens by birth. That program, known as DACA, granted qualified applicants - including about 124,000 Texans - a work permit and a reprieve from deportation proceedings.

"We can not eliminate people who have the will to work, want the jobs, want to grow our economy, want to add to society in many ways, not just as workers but in associations", Sine said.

Cornyn, though pushing for a solution before the year's end, said Wednesday that he doesn't want it tied to the spending bill. "I'm going to wait and see how we progress". Congress has three months to find a legislative solution. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services says there are about 690,000 active DACA recipients in the country. Another provision would strengthen electronic verification systems for employers and limit green cards for family members of USA citizens and permanent residents.

Activists and Democratic leaders immediately decried the legislation. Ending DACA would cost the state more than $91 million in annual GDP losses, would remove an estimated 685,000 workers from the US economy and would result in the loss of $460.3 billion in GDP nationwide over the next 10 years, according to the Interfaith Worker Justice fact sheet.

"If Congress doesn't do it now - by attaching Dreamer legislation to must-pass legislation this year - it's highly unlikely they are going to do it at all", reads a statement Monday from America's Voice, a Washington-based group that advocates for immigration reform.

"We weren't at fault for this and we're done everything we could to be Americans", Evangelista said.

It's unclear what, exactly, any agreement over DACA might look like ahead of the program's current end date on Friday.

But since then, their future has been uncertain.

Addressing DACA next year would also give party hardliners more time to build support for stricter immigration measures.

Voters in vulnerable GOP districts oppose tax bill Giffords targets 8 Republicans on hide and carry in new ads DACA advocates see efforts gaining steam in the House MORE told The Hill he's ready to buck his party's leadership to fight for so-called Dreamers, but thinks Republicans have incentives to extend or expand DACA benefits.

"There's a lot of momentum", she said. It's real life for Jesús Arreola, a DACA recipient who shared his story with the San Jose Mercury News. Hurd is one of 19 House Republicans seeking reelection next year in a district where Latinos make up more than 10 percent of the population. "All it takes is that exposure".

Angeles and Garcia, meanwhile, said their uncertain futures will not deter their fight for more-permanent immigration changes.
