Local DACA recipients looking to legislators to pass 'Clean Dream Act'

Since the Trump Administration's announcement to rescind the program, I've gained faith in the bipartisan work Congress has done to pass a long-term fix like the Dream Act.

Costello, whose 6th District is based in Chester County, and Fitzpatrick, who represents the Bucks County-based 8th District, were among 13 House Republicans who stood together at a press conference last month seeking a vote to resolve the DACA issue.

"Rep. Kinzinger and the others, ". write in support of passing of a permanent legislative solution for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients before the end of the year".

Offering an emotional speech at the letter signing, Nelsen said that California State University, Sacramento is home to more than 1,000 undocumented students.

Just one month ago, 23 percent of swing voters said DACA amnesty was a "top priority" for Congress, as Breitbart News reported, revealing a three percent decline in support by Independents for amnesty.

"These families are law-abiding, tax paying, hard working, setting examples kind of families", said Senator Kaine.

While DACA allowed young illegal immigrants to go to school and work in the US, it did not grant them the status they desperately needed.

Democrats and some Republicans have called for approving a solution for those in limbo sooner rather than later, with Tuesday's letter from Republicans stating that "not acting is creating uncertainty and anxiety amongst immigrant communities".

Dozens of immigration advocates and supporters attend a rally outside of Trump Tower along Fifth Avenue on August 15, 2017 in New York City.

Republicans must secure the vote of at least eight Democrats in order to overcome a filibuster and pass the bill.

Instagram tests standalone messaging app called Direct
Just look at Facebook Messenger , which was first released in 2011, and made the default mobile messaging experience since 2014. Direct has some 375 million users as of April, which is one good reason for Facebook to want to turn it into a standalone app.

House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have both said in recent days that they don't consider it urgent legislation. IRLI's Kris Kobach has fretted that Latino immigrants could commit "ethnic cleansing", and CAPS President Ben Zuckerman recently advocated for "a prompt stabilization of the USA population".

Democrats say that's wrong on multiple counts - that they don't want immigrants streaming into the country illegally, nor do they want a shutdown. (A September poll from Morning Consult showed that only 15 percent of Americans - and only 24 percent of Republicans - want to deport Dreamers.) Actually being willing to shut down the government by denying Republicans votes for a spending bill (they need at least eight Senate Democratic votes to overcome a filibuster, and perhaps some House Democratic votes to offset defections from conservatives who oppose almost every spending measure) is another thing altogether.

"Certainly, we want to find a bipartisan solution and we definitely do not want to get into a debate about shutting the government down", Denham said. "America can continue to be a nation of laws, border security, and controlled immigration".

In a statement, McClintock said any reform must include the building of a border wall, along with other security measures.

A national campaign urging congressional movement on "dreamers" will begin Wednesday, with an emphasis on highlighting the beneficial financial impact to each state. "Reaching across the aisle to protect DACA recipients before the holidays is the right thing to do".
