Activists push to pass DREAM Act before end of year

Activists push to pass DREAM Act before end of year

The Federal government has withdrawn minimal protections for Haitian migrants living in the United States and threatened to terminate temporary protected status for thousands of others.

"Sometimes I feel as if we're kind of beating our heads against a wall.but you know.worse than hate is apathy", said Shelley Cohen.

Evelyn Valdez-Ward is a PhD student in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of California, Irvine, and a DACA recipient. 321,220 immigrants from ten different countries in Central America and Africa are in the United States under the TPS program, according to the Journal on Migration and Human Security.

She has talked with restaurant owners who said they would keep their establishments open longer if they had enough employees, she said.

With Congress expected to vote this week on DACA's future, activists in Texas and across the country are trying to mobilize support for the program and the so-called "Dreamers" it protects.

Garcia, a UH sophomore, said she's still paying out of pocket for most of her schooling. Another provision would strengthen electronic verification systems for employers and limit green cards for family members of US citizens and permanent residents.

On Monday, Texas Sen. "I grew up here, I don't remember where I'm from, and I think that the U.S.is my home country".

Burning Stock on the move: NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA)
Among 18 analysts covering Ventas Inc. 4 or 21.05% of the trades during the past quarter were buys, and 15 or 78.95% were sells. A ratio of 1.5 will suggest that the company has $1.5 of liquid assets available to pay off $1 of its current liabilities.

"At a minimum we need to pass something like the Bridge Act", said Coffman.

It's unclear what, exactly, any agreement over DACA might look like ahead of the program's current end date on Friday. But many dreamers said that may be too late because their DACA applications expire at the end of the year.

The Republicans said Congress is "compelled to act immediately because many DACA recipients are about to lose or have already lost their permits in the wake of the program's rescission".

"There's a lot of momentum", she said.

The NAE also is expected to release an interactive map of immigration stories from all 435 congressional districts and to coordinate events around the country, including statements issued in Pennsylvania supporting DACA, according to the NAE press release. NumbersUSA's Roy Beck bragged about making "immigration radioactive in as many places as possible". It's one thing to hear about (immigrants) on TV or from Trump.

The idea that immigrants are stealing jobs is a myth, Jorge Dennis, the President of EnviroKleen, said, adding that the construction industry is losing people to retirement three times faster than it can hire.

It's time for Members of Congress to decide: are they going to agree with the American people and allow Dreamers the opportunity to earn a path to citizenship by passing permanent legislation? "We dropped everything for a better life". "We are trying to fight the good fight". "We have a welfare system that's basically trapping people in poverty and effectively paying people not to work, and we've got to work on that".
