Immigration rallies held on deadline day for DACA renewals

Sacramento State senior Rossmeri Ramirez is a former DACA recipient who now has legal permanent residency.

Those who didn't could face deportation much sooner.

Meanwhile, undocumented immigrants are not backing down.

Sen. Graham and Senator Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) are among those supporting the Dream Act but there's another option on the table. Once the policy is repealed, undocumented students will be subject to the same financial aid formulas as other students. Dorado says fostering bipartisanship is the key to passing the DREAM Act.

The administration's memorandum "provides no assurance to Dreamers, or direction to (government agencies) that information contained in DACA applications or renewal requests can not be used for the objective of future immigration enforcement proceedings", the lawsuit says.

Immigrant rights groups on Thursday sued the Trump administration over its move to end a program that protects young people who were brought to the United States illegally.

With 3,000 DACA recipients living in Idaho, Leo Morales, director of Idaho's ACLU, estimates many missed the opportunity.

"Today we're going to show determination, we're going to show that we have pride, that we are here to stay".

"We were talking with a lot of Republican members of congress to do the right thing, sign the petition, to vote on a dream act that is clean and provides a pathway to citizenship" said Henry. "You can renew for another two years" said Joe Henry of the United League of Latin American Citizens of Iowa.

Mark Meadows, a Republican from North Carolina, said the US government will prioritize tax reform before they get to the DACA issue in March as they consider tax reform as it is a more "substantial legislation".

"Once we start getting into the legal immigration debate and what the appropriate fixes are there, we're in danger of getting into the comprehensive immigration reform debate, which leaves us basically empty-handed", Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) told HuffPost on Thursday.

President tTump has said he would like a better alternative to DACA.

The program, which now serves about 800,000 people in the United States allows children of illegal immigrants to get a driver's license, work, and go to school without the fear of deportation. "You know, I would just honestly be lost".

"DACA is a program that has been viewed obviously as being of significant benefit because so many people have renewed the program", Mittelstadt says.

Federal officials said requests must be properly filed and physically received by the agency.

Tsangarakis-Almeida adds that even if her clients get their renewal, the status lasts for only two years. Trump has stated that a replacement program may be implemented by December 2017.
