Rubio: Trump Never 'Gung-Ho on Kicking DREAMers Out' of the Country

Steve King blasts Trump on immigration in series of tweets

Steve King blasts Trump on immigration in series of tweets

These young people trusted the US government when they enrolled in DACA - Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals - and gave their names and addresses, under the promise that "the information provided in this request is protected from disclosure to" immigration and border officials.

Meanwhile, talk of a deal could put hardliners like Barletta in the hard position of deciding whether to support a deal struck by a president who won his state, even if it incurs the wrath of conservatives opposed to any compromise over young illegal immigrants.

With uncertainty about what, if any, reforms Congress will pass, as well as how the University and activist circles will respond, many attendees found this unknown future to be the hardest part of the DACA fallout.

If DREAMers can't stay in the United States, they might consider Canada, as many global students do. They grew up singing the Star Spangled Banner and pledging allegiance to the American flag. A prominent Trump supporter in Pennsylvania, US representative Lou Barletta, an immigration hard-liner who cheered the president's Muslim travel ban and repeal of Daca, declined to criticize Trump on the issue on Thursday.

The President responded to our request, and DACA has been a huge success.

Refugees From Burundi Killed in Congo, Activists Say
Kamanyola is home to 2,000 of the almost 44,000 people who have fled Burundi to neighboring Congo, according to the U.N. The clashes broke out when refugees were opposed to repatriation to Burundi, Kasereka said.

But today, across the nation, thousands of Dreamers - and their families and friends - are afraid. "We were on the cusp until the Trump announcement on DACA, and now it looks like things are going to be going downhill real fast or the Republicans will be done for in 2018 and 2020". And while the suggestion to push back the deadline was just a suggestion, the paper reports that Garaufis told attorneys he would issue an order to "protect" the immigrants who would be affected by the end of DACA if the deadline remained.

Immigration hardliners like Republican congressmen Lou Barletta, of Pennsylvania, and Indiana's Luke Messer and Todd Rokita said they'd only support a deal if it created more stringent immigration policies.

He cited a study by the Center for American Progress that reported ending DACA would cost the country $433 billion in gross domestic product during the next decade. As Townhall.com editor Guy Benson aptly points out, "The Trump administration clearly stated yesterday that they will not be "targeting" these young people or reshuffling their enforcement priorities". "The deportation clock is ticking", he said.

It was sixteen years ago that I first introduced the Dream Act.

The Trump administration is giving Congress six months to come up with a legislative fix before the government stops renewing permits for people who are already covered by the program.

Dow And S&P 500 Climb To New Record Closing Highs
This indicator compares the closing price of a stock in relation to the highs and lows over a certain time period. The Nasdaq Composite.IXIC dropped 0.48 percent to 6,429.08, hurt by a 0.86-percent decline in Apple AAPL .O.

Since then, Trump has been hinting, albeit vaguely, that he'd be open to a deal helping the DREAMers out.

King said he has seen his colleagues in Congress refer to the wall as actually a fence or surveillance measures instead of the physical barrier Trump promised, and such declarations ring hollow.

The American people are calling out for this. Even the most anti-immigration Americans recognize that dreamers themselves have done nothing wrong and that they know no home but the United States.

It's time to stand up.

The clearest path forward is to pass the Dream Act, which I co-sponsor.

Millions of Florida Homes and Businesses Still Don't Have Power
Most of those deaths were the result of either medical issues as they prepared for the storm or carbon monoxide poisoning. The utility serves 1.8 million customers in the state, from the Florida panhandle south to the central part of the state.

Pelosi also said they had discussed with Trump a bill that would allow DACA recipients to eventually become citizens.
