McConnell Statement on Border Security, DACA legislation

Approximately 790,000 people known as ‘Dreamers’ are protected under DACA according to Pew research

Sunday. He also wrote a post supporting the Obama-era initiative last week

"They are job creators, not job stealers", he said.

Now it appears the president may have cut a deal with Democrats to make those protections permanent - without demanding funding for a border wall.

"As this president has abandoned DACA recipients, as people of faith we are calling on Congress, the administration and the broader public to pass the Dream Act", the Rev. Reuben Eckles, a pastor with Church World Service, told NBC News at Wednesday's gathering.

Meanwhile, Southern Baptist Minister Alan Cross, who advocates for Dreamers and fixing what he calls America's "broken" immigration system, says this is one of the most important issues facing our nation today.

The move to rescind DACA, the complaint alleges, means that the city has had to prepare for the possibility that the U.S. Congress won't come to an agreement on DACA by March 5, 2018 and that the city will no longer be able to employ DACA recipients because they are no longer legally allowed to work in the country.

"We agreed to enshrine the protections of DACA into law quickly, and to work out a package of border security, excluding the wall, that's acceptable to both sides", the statement read.

Amid President Trump coming to an agreement with Democratic congressional leaders about saving DREAMers from deportation, Sen.

"We're not looking at citizenship". As editor Guy Benson aptly points out, "The Trump administration clearly stated yesterday that they will not be "targeting" these young people or reshuffling their enforcement priorities".

President Donald Trump is now tweeting about how some unauthorized immigrants are really good people. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said today that his former presidential primary challenger was never that into deportation in the first place.

"Senator Casey and Democrats are fighting for illegal immigrants". "I've been reconsidering support for a while, but the DACA deal just sent me over the edge", he said.

Barletta backed the construction of the wall, cracking down on those who overstay their visas and penalizing sanctuary cities.

He said the program changed his life. Nicole Tami, executive director of the global education office at the University of New Mexico, tells The PIE News, "We try to be responsive to those on the DACA program". Dreamers grew up in this country and are American in every way except their legal immigration status. Of course, immigration is a top issue for Texas Representative Joaquin Castro, a Democrat. One by POLITICO/Morning Consult this week showed 73 percent national support for allowing the immigrants to stay in the country.

That could put Barletta in an "awkward spot", said Pennsylvania Democratic Party spokesman Max Steele. I can't find that person. "Either way he will be in direct conflict with a decent chunk of the GOP base".

Rokita said he backs "building the wall, cracking down on sanctuary cities and deporting violent criminals". The tentative deal would protect hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants in the United States, would include a border security package but would not fund the wall along the border.

Mr. Shumate added that the government had set the deadline because some Republican state attorneys general had threatened to sue to end the program.

Congress might come up with a real law that's even better than the temporary DACA program.
