"It's been really hard on the family", said Evelyn.

"The coming Christmas has to be a Christmas of joy for all of us or none of us", he said. At MU, DACA students are charged the same tuition that applies to worldwide students, according to the email. For those who have to renew their DACA status in the next six months, protections will be extended through March 5, 2020 if all of the paperwork is filed. They must go through the vetting every two years, something that no other special immigrant has to do.

Those whose deferred-action status is expiring between September 5 and March 5, 2018, have a month to apply to renew their work permits.

"With respect to the notion that I can just suspend deportations through executive order, that's just not the case... for me to simply through executive order ignore congressional mandates would not conform with my appropriate role as President", Obama said prior to doing precisely that.

We are the land of opportunity, and we can not pride ourselves on that unless we make a change and stand with those who want the opportunities that were promised to them.

"Dreamers", these kids of which I speak, came to this country with their parents and are now an average of 26 years old, as reported by the Los Angeles Times. If DACA isn't continued by an act of Congress within six months, the lives that those "dreamers" (as they're known) have created in the five years since the program was enacted will suddenly have the foundation removed. She said she's afraid for her younger sister who now can't apply for DACA.

"Rescinding DACA will cause harm to hundreds of thousands of the States' residents, injure State-run colleges and universities, upset the States' workplaces, damage the States' economies, hurt State-based companies, and disrupt the States' statutory and regulatory interests", the lawsuit stated. They feel as American as apple pie, and they believed in the hope given by one American government only to be taken away by another.

Reaction from lawmakers and entities has been varied. Effective immediately, no new DACA applications will be accepted by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). "Yes", said Tipton, who co-chaired the county's campaign for Trump.

"America is a nation that keeps its word - but President Trump fundamentally betrayed that promise today", Merkley wrote in a news release.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Idaho also condemned the action, along with the Oregon Department of Education and the Oregon State Board of Education. He said his personal information would not be used against him, but now he was anxious.

This Saturday, Sept, 9, more than 250 teachers and supporters will attend Bringing Sanctuary to the Classroom, which OUSD's Sanctuary District Committee organized to promote safe, culturally responsive environments in our schools.

It's up to Congress, a White House fact sheet said, "to responsibly address federal immigration law in an appropriate and constitutional manner".
