Deadline arrives for DACA program renewal

Sacramento State student government donates $10K to DACA renewal fund 'Students Defend DACA' panel shines a light on local Dreamers

President Donald Trump announced at the beginning of September that he would end the program, which allows recipients to get a driver's license, a work permit or enroll in school.

If Congress does not reach an agreement, 300,000 people could begin to lose their status in 2018, and more than 320,000 would lose their status from January to August 2019.

Of the approximately 154,000 DACA recipients who were eligible to apply for a two-year extension of their protections, about 42,500 had yet to do so as of Wednesday, according to Vox.

Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) is leading efforts to draft a "conservative Dream Act" that would extend permanent residency to people brought to the USA illegally as child, but with much more rigorous vetting.

The program shielded immigrants whose parents brought them to the United States as children by their parents without authorization.

"They are a benefit to this country", Dougherty told the Senate Judiciary Committee. They also want a primary contact at the university to act as a liaison for undocumented students, and better access to information and resources for undocumented students and prospective students. Dozens were present to hear senators of both parties pledge to work toward a solution, even while partisan divisions that could complicate any resolution were on stark display.

As President Trump said: "I am not going to just cut DACA off, but rather provide a window of opportunity for Congress to finally act".

The ACLU and the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California filed a class-action suit in a federal court in Los Angles on behalf of the young immigrants, claiming the Trump administration illegally revoked their Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status.

"Sad, frustrated. They aren't really sure what their next step is going to be", said Nicole Bernal Ruiz, Program Director with the Hispanic Affairs Project.

"I'm scared. I'm scared for my future, and I'm scared for my parents' future", said Monica Comacho.

She said if DACA ends, hundreds of thousands of workers would disappear from the nation's economy, resulting in a $460 billion loss in national GDP over the next decade. In Florida, 2,052 people in Hurricane Irma-affected areas, or 35 percent of recipients, did not submit their applications in time. Officials from the Department of Homeland Security's U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services say that includes about 1,800 Hoosiers.

But like the others there, she wants to see all undocumented immigrants given a pathway to citizenship. Trump himself has suggested that his long-promised U.S. -Mexico border wall, which is supposed to be paid for by Mexico, can be addressed separately from a solution for DACA. But party leaders have said they would be willing to accept border security measures in exchange for legal status for Dreamers.
