DACA protest

"First off, there's no agreement", the Wisconsin Republican said. The president was not invited, which I gather is unusual. Many came here at such a young age that America is the only country they've ever known, and the Star Spangled banner the only anthem they've ever sung. But with Congress' failure to achieve any meaningful policy, we also believe Obama's actions would have provoked Congress to act.

The Grand Rapids Community College student who is one of the estimated 800,000 young adults who was protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program which was rescinded by the Trump Administration on September 5.

More confusion was added on Thursday when Trump himself said citizenship was off the table, despite Democratic leaders suggesting the president was supportive of their plan for a pathway to citizenship.

Trump, whose tweets are cited in a judicial opinion striking down the Muslim travel ban because he specifically tweeted about it being a travel ban, has yet to abide by the one rule of using Twitter effectively: never tweet.

The confusion put Republican leaders in a precarious position. They would be wrong in making that assumption.

"I want more details and hope that it's more than DACA", said Ugaz, who was born in Peru. "It does suggest how much Trump wants this DACA issue to go away", he said. But it failed in the Senate, which was also controlled by Democrats at the time. So we need border security and enforcement as part of any agreement. "And I think a broken legal immigration system contributes to it as well".

"I don't think it is unclear to anybody what those campaign promises were but it looks to me like he's preparing to keep Hillary Clinton's campaign promise rather than his own", he continued.

"This will bring a lot of instability", said Latin American Student Organization (LASO) President and student, Brian Gutierrez. "He can meet with anybody".

The top House Democrat and a senior White House official both indicated Tuesday they are open to compromise on border security to expedite legislation to help immigrants brought here illegally as children.

Just last week, the Trump Administration rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

For one local recipient the news of a possible change made her feel better after last week's announcement that the program could be ending.

"There is no deal now made".

These kids, now called DREAMers, grew up in this country, adhered to the laws of this country and essentially know little but what life is like inside the borders of this country.

Pelosi and Schumer released a joint statement after the dinner saying they agreed to work toward a deal that includes border security measures - but not anything that could be construed as building Trump's promised U.S. -Mexico border wall.
