The program lets young immigrants brought to the US illegally as children, called Dreamers, temporarily stay in the country and get jobs.
The program hasn't ended, though, because federal courts ruled that the president didn't follow the law when he canceled it. The president also pledged to expand the DACA proposal to an additional 1.1 million Dreamers who are not formally enrolled in the program. "Once again, Congress has shown a lack of leadership".
They, and their advocates, are anxious for action.
"One day I'll hear they are fixing DACA and the next day it's on hold", said Jimena Vazquez, a 16-year-old Lincoln High School student who was born here but whose sister is a DACA recipient and student at the University of California, Santa Barbara. One member, Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., said he wondered if the Colorado lawmaker was pushing his measure hard with fellow Republicans or if it was "just a way to cover himself for his re-election".
Many DACA recipients are anxious about their future.
Several protesters blocking Independence Avenue the Cannon House Office Building were arrested by US Capitol Police. The Chicago rally included singing and prayer, as well as testimonials from some of the state's almost 40,000 DACA recipients. The Dallas area had the nation's third-largest concentration of DACA recipients.
An expected D-Day for DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) came and went yesterday without the predicted fallout from an original US government plan to shut down the controversial immigration program established by former President Barack Obama.
But the Dreamer deadline has now come and gone with no action from Congress - but plenty of anger and fear from Dreamers. Roughly 13,090 people will lose their work permits in March and another 5,340 will expire in April, according to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services.
There's probably another universe where DACA was never needed in the first place because congresspeople didn't care more about party loyalty & political optics than they did the lives of their fellow human beings.
Trump had insisted that any legislation saving DACA had to be coupled with funding for his border wall and an overhaul of the legal immigration system.
"I'm taking it day by day", he said. "And I deserve full equality right here, right now". "And that's unfair. It's inhumane".
Currently, new applications are not being accepted but there were approximately 22,000 initial DACA grant requests pending as of January 31, 2018.
"What I'm interested in is solving the problem", said Senator John Cornyn. I'm glad I found a good job for the moment. DACA has opened up the world to a more equal playing field for Romero, who is still financially struggling to even think about attending college. On top of this stress is the chance that their legal stauts could be taken away.
"It doesn't matter that you have a pending application in", Wolgin said.
Soglin said Ryan needs to be reminded that he represents the people of Wisconsin. "That's the situation we're now in", he said. In response to a question he said there was "no question" that he would act as Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf did and warn constituents about impending ICE raids.
"We gave him virtually so much of what he wanted, he still couldn't accept it". "There's a hope, and they keep putting it off and putting it off".
