Because Trump has made a decision to dissolve DACA rather than let it die out in the courts, it gives Congress until March 5, 2018 to preserve the program's protections for DACA recipients. After a short break, participants will then march to Placita Olvera in downtown Los Angeles, across from Union Station, where the demonstration is expected to end about 7 p.m. Protests against the ending of DACA have taken place across the country, and the University of California sued the Trump administration on Friday, September 8th, under the leadership of University President Janet Napolitano.

He pointed to evidence of the programme's "positive impact on the lives of hundreds of thousands of young migrants, and on the United States economy and society", and said he hoped Congress would now act to provide former DACA beneficiaries with "durable legal status". We evaluate applications from undocumented prospective students under our need-blind admissions policy with a commitment to meet 100 percent of demonstrated financial need regardless of country of citizenship or immigration status.

DACA is one program that has helped immigrant students to gain and maintain such access. "Each DACA grant is for a two-year period, so (for) anyone who has deferred action now, it's currently valid". This is about whether we are a people who kick hopeful young strivers out of America, or whether we treat them the way we'd want our own kids to be treated. With this action, the onus is now on Congress to provide a legislative fix within six months. There are 800,000 DREAMers here, and they are giving back to the United States by becoming outstanding members of their communities. "They contribute in our society in many ways".

"The president, I think - I'm hoping and I'm praying - that the president really cares about the Dreamers", Pelosi said Thursday.

"We understand the frustrations associated with our nation's broken immigration system, and support comprehensive reforms at the federal level to address this issue", said Hart Nelson, the chamber's vice president of public policy.

Roth said just more than 6,400 people have benefitted from DACA in SC.

Charlotte Alvarez, the executive director and staff attorney for the Bloomington-based Immigration Project, said on GLT's Sound Ideas that Trump's reversal has led to confusion among DACA recipients.

"She just turned 15, so she lost that opportunity and so that's where my worry comes in, you know", she said.

"Some migrants, including longstanding residents, are now so frightened of expedited deportation they refrain from accessing police protection and courtrooms", Zeid said.
