On Wednesday, Democratic leaders in Congress announced they had a deal with Trump to enshrine DACA through legislative action. San Jose, like the rest of the Silicon Valley, has the need for a skilled work force. I would basically call it allowing them to do what they've been doing, which is basically live as Americans.

Regardless of where you stand on DACA, will you still pray? "We want to make sure that the AAPI community knows exactly what is still available to them and that they get involved".

Undocumented immigrants also don't commit more crimes, per capita, than those born in the United States. Might it be immoral to offer false hope to DREAMers and potentially the thousands of undocumented kids from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala who flooded our borders reportedly to escape violence after DACA was publicized?

Our opinion: The program to defer deportation for students who came to the nation as minors has been a boon.

There are Christian leaders who are members of groups like the Evangelical Immigration Table who have written letters to Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and House Speaker Paul Ryan, asking them to provide protection to Dreamers while Congress works to meet the president's deadline.

The congressman then retweeted an August 31, 2016, CNN video from Trump that shows the president, in the run-up to his election, saying he wouldn't support amnesty for undocumented immigrants.

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra filed a similar lawsuit, as did University of California President Janet Napolitano.

Homeland Security will do the same for current beneficiaries whose benefits will expire before March 18, 2018, and who "have been accepted by the department as of October 5, 2017".

"We were going to have the Rolls-Royce of a big, lovely wall", King said, adding that Trump's more recent comments about immigration mean that "the Rolls-Royce is now going to be an overhauled jalopy". "I've been here for 15 years". She referenced a figure from former president Barack Obama's administration of how many Asians in the United States were eligible to apply for the program. Obama justified DACA on the authority of "prosecutorial discretion", but, as Fox News' Gregg Jarrett recently expressed, it is more accurate that Obama was "distorting" prosecutorial discretion. Today, the average DACA recipient is 22 years old, employed, and in pursuit of higher education. Millions of people have gone through the immigration process according to current immigration laws to become American citizens. Jane Cowley, a spokeswoman for the Department of Homeland Security noted that number could include those who haven't renewed, those who've had renewals denied, those who've since changed immigration status, and those who've left the country.

As we think about our fellow New Yorkers, we must also remember that we should hold our elected officials accountable for clear stances and solutions to these important policy issues that affect our lives.

Another way in which the larger community benefits is through taxes that DACA recipients pay.

Others make a different argument about DACA, one which doesn't involve being particularly upset at Trump.

Her husband thinks about it often, though.

"I strongly disagree and formally denounce the Trump administration's decision to rescind the DACA program", White said in a statement.

"I'm here now, and I have a foundation to build on", Rubio said.
