Federal Judge Secures Massive DACA Win For Trump… Changes Underway For Illegal Immigrants

Featured, Politics
President Donald Trump lauded a win in a federal court affirming his authority to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. The program — initiated by former President Barack Obama by executive action in 2012 — allows those who arrived in the United States before they turned 16 the ability to apply for renewable two-year deferments on deportation. “Federal Judge in Maryland has just ruled that ‘President Trump has the right to end DACA,'” Trump tweeted on Tuesday. “President Obama had 8 years to fix this problem, and didn’t. I am waiting for the Dems, they are running for the hills!” https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/971019306388611073 Federal district court Judge Roger W. Titus found that Trump was fully within his authority to rescind Obama’s executive orde

The Government Could Shut Down Again Because Congress Can’t Figure Out A DACA Deal

Congress and the White House are not on course to reach an immigration deal by the end of the month, meaning hundreds of thousands of people could lose their residency status and another government shutdown could be in the cards. With just one week to go before a self-imposed deadline, Congress’s efforts to reach an immigration deal are in shambles. Lawmakers are hoping to avoid another government shutdown and extend DACA, the Obama-era program that allows children of undocumented immigrants to live and work in the country. The program expires March 5, putting 700,000 people at risk of deportation. The Senate is supposed to vote on a bill by Feb. 8, but when asked Tuesday whether the Senate is any closer to a DACA deal than it was when the last government shutdown ended two weeks

It’s down to the wire for President Trump and lawmakers to come up with a plan for the hundreds of thousands of young, undocumented immigrants living in the U.S. In September 2017, the Trump administration officially announced its plan to phase out DACA – which provides a level of amnesty to certain undocumented immigrants, many of whom came to the U.S. as children – with a six-month delay for recipients. Here’s a look at the DACA program and why the Trump administration dismantled it. What is the DACA program? Nearly 800,000 undocumented youth fell under the DACA program's umbrella.  (Reuters/Jose Luis Gonzalez) The DACA program was formed through executive order by former President Barack Obama in 2012 and allowed certain people who came to the U.S. illegally as mino

Trump’s Draft Amnesty: Citizenship for Illegal Alien Population Six Times the Size of Obama’s DACA

President Trump’s amnesty plan would potentially give a pathway to U.S. citizenship to an illegal alien population that is roughly six times the number of illegal aliens that were given temporary amnesty under former President Obama. An almost final draft of the White House’s expansive amnesty plan obtained by Breitbart News reveals that the Trump administration would be expanding Obama’s federal, temporary amnesty—known as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program—to six times the number of illegal aliens who are enrolled in the DACA. Former Koch brothers executive Marc Short, who previously led the failed “Never Trump” effort inside the pro-mass immigration billionaires’ network, helped craft the White House amnesty plan, along with Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly, Dep

President Trump on Sunday argued again that Democrats and their demands -- not him or fellow Republicans in Congress -- have throttled negotiations to provide permanent legal protection for young illegal immigrants and made clear that any such deal also must end the United States’ lottery-immigration program. “DACA is probably dead because the Democrats don’t really want it, they just want to talk and take desperately needed money away from our Military,” said Trump, in one of several tweets on the issue of immigration reform and on the related Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program. The president and Congress are attempting to reach a deal on comprehensive immigration reform as part of a federal spending bill that Congress must pass by Friday to avoid a government sh
