Admin revokes blocked program to protect immigrant parents

During his presidential campaign, Trump said former President Barack Obama had "defied federal law and the Constitution", and that he would "immediately terminate" DACA when he became president. "These young people are lawful, contributing members of our society and deserve to be able to stay here, their home". Since his election he has softened his tone and said he would deal with DACA "with heart, " without pledging to continue it.

Still, many, including Valdez, wonder if DACA will be next to go. "They become part of American society".

On the other side, immigration activists were not declaring victory, anxious that President Trump will sooner or later move to rein in the DACA program, which could put millions in jeopardy of deportation.

While DACA doesn't offer a legal immigration status, a path to citizenship and or any permanent protections, it does provide approved immigrants with a valuable work permit good for two years at a time.

The DACA program stipulates measures that would protect young immigrants while Congress considers wider immigration legislation that will be ringing about the desired changes to the DACA legislation.

"DACA, at the end of the day, is still an executive order", she said. "The fact is that most of our community is still living in fear because of the draconian immigration policies of this administration". In 2015, Obama tried to expand the program to include the illegal immigrant parents of US citizens, which would have granted up to 5 million people.

Fulfilling one of the key campaign promises of President Donald Trump, US Homeland Secretary John Kelly signed a memorandum on Thursday revoking an Obama-era plan that meant to protect some illegal immigrant of parents of children who are lawful permanent residents from being deported. Conservatives have long criticized the policy, with 26 states suing, arguing President Obama overstepped his authority in enacting it. Past year the US Supreme Court deadlocked on the case, with the effect that the lower court ruling stood. The Fifth District Court of Appeals upheld that court's decision, and the Supreme Court declined to hear the case, leaving the decision in place. However, the program never was fully implemented.

The DACA program impacts around 800,000 young immigrants in the United States. Both programs required that participants meet certain conditions, including not having a criminal history.

In February, an undocumented immigrant was deported to Mexico by US border officials in what was reportedly the first instance of a DACA recipient being forced out of the USA under President Trump. The announcement is bittersweet for many undocumented families because it means that while some young people can continue to remain in the USA, their parents are not offered the same protection.

Trump has made immigration enforcement a top priority and has vowed to continue a crackdown on those living in US illegally and those trying to sneak into the country.

DAPA would have affected as many as four million people by some estimates, those with US-born children who were in the country before 2010.
