  • DACA protects eligible immigrant youth who first arrived in America when they were children from deportation

President Trump has chose to end the 2012 deportation amnesty for young adult illegal immigrants, Fox News reported Thursday, citing a senior administration official.

The program was formed through executive order by then-President Barack Obama in 2012 and allows for certain people who came to the US illegally as minors to be protected from immediate deportation.

But attorneys general in Texas and nine other conservative states have threatened legal action if the Trump administration doesn't rescind DACA by Tuesday.

As the leaders of communities across the country-individuals and institutions that have seen these young people grow up in our communities-we recognize how they have enriched and strengthened our cities, states, schools, businesses, congregations, and families. "It's something that's still being discussed and a final decision hasn't been made", she said. If DACA ends, those in the program could be easier for authorities to locate and subject to deportation. "This affects people that had no choice. We also conducted several tests that confirmed that their children had similar background characteristics and health status before DACA was implemented", says Jens Hainmueller, Stanford professor and co-director of the Immigration Policy Lab.

Kayleigh Lovvorn, a spokeswoman for Texas attorney general, on Thursday said her office has no plans to push back the September 5 date.

Authorities weren't able to confirm the incident early Monday afternoon, but three family members verified the story to KHOU. Witnesses told the station that emergency crews in the area were not able to reach the van in time to rescue the six inside.

U.S. Representative Steny Hoyer of Maryland, the No. 2 Democrat in the House of Representatives, released a statement expressing concern about reports that Trump may terminate the program, saying this would be "devastating" to many Dreamers.

"If they look and their parents, and their parents are distressed, then a lot of times, they model that reaction", Kearney said, adding that fear of separation is common among mixed-status families. But the sources did not say whether Trump will listen to Kelly on the issue as he has come under tremendous pressure from inside the White House and from outside groups to end the DACA program. Escalante also suggests donating to local organizations that support immigrant rights and recommends United We Dream, National Immigration Law Center, and America's Voice.

"You have said that DACA students are 'incredible kids, ' and I very much agree", he writes.

Employers are already searching for options to keep their DACA employees in place, in the event that the program goes away, said Borovska. Only immigrants who arrived in the USA before 2007 and were under the age of 15 upon arrival are eligible for the program. "Barring renewals to the DACA program would force me from my job, and I would be made a priority for deportation".

USA legislation that protects some immigrants from deportation has been good for the mental health of their children. "We're going to take care of everybody".
