North Jersey Dreamers hopeful, cautious after DACA deal

The complaint was filed less than a day after President Trump met with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY and agreed to protect certain immigrants brought illegally into the U.S.as children and enhancements to USA border security.

The National Council of Asian Pacific Americans says that about 16,000 Asian-American Pacific Islanders are part of the DACA program.

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.

SIMON: Well, I think I'm hopeful that ultimately we can reach an agreement to make sure that those 800,000 hardworking young people who have been here a very long time and who are essentially Americans except on paper, as President Obama said, will be able to stay. It included a framework for protection for the dreamers in exchange for beefed-up border security, but did not include money for the president's border wall. The lawsuit claims that because the city employs Dreamers, it would "suffer tangible losses" from Trump's DACA rescission. He also praised them as "good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs". "We're not looking at amnesty", he said.

I am not going to argue whether it would be just to deport illegal immigrants who came here as children.


Cross says Dreamers don't have a pathway to citizenship that keeps them in the USA and most people don't realize this.

The lawsuit comes amid renewed confusion over DACA's future - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY announced late Wednesday they had reached an agreement with Trump to protect the country's Dreamers. Some of these folks came here when they were 2 years old and didn't realize that they were undocumented until they tried to get a driver's license or apply to college, for example.

"I feel a little nervous, I feel a little anxious with them giving us mixed signals", said Giselle Gasca, DACA Recipient.

Short's comments were the latest signal that the Republican president wants to see if he can engage Democrats as well as Republicans in trying to enact his agenda. Yes, that's a possible scenario, one among many that to me all lead back to my previous paragraph. President Trump has urged Congress to do something and to do it right, and so they should.

Steve King, a Republican congressman, said: "The Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond fix".
