She shared her immigration status with few friends until she qualified for Obama’s 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.
The situation has gotten so out of hand that the National Border Patrol Council, which represents almost 17,000 Border Patrol agents, broke its long-standing policy and endorsed Trump. “And just as safely”.
Kobach stressed that Trump must sign off on decisions involving enforcement policies, but said candidate Trump signaled clearly what President Trump will do.
Kobach added that he did not want to get into details prematurely that had not yet been hammered out or that would put Trump on the spot. The non-partisan think tank estimates there are only about 820,000 undocumented immigrants living in the USA with a criminal record-well short of Trump’s stated three million figure. Immigration activists from the Central Coast believe, because DACA was an executive action, it would be an easy immigration program for Trump to end.
Obama admitted he was unlikely to achieve his goal of closing the Guantanamo Bay prison, blaming the failure on Congress.
Expect the Trump Administration to reverse that program once he takes office in January. Interestingly, the Pew Research Center, another think tank, has very similar numbers. The Obama administration has focused its considerable deportation efforts on the same kinds of people. “We are going to bring our country back”.
Martinez of United We Dream said her group is in talks with lawyers about what right to privacy, if any, DACA applicants have. He said national security “requires a level of precision” so deadly mistakes aren’t made.
“What’s the different between immigrants and Americans besides a piece of paper”, Wong said.
Immigration lawyers in Arizona said they have been flooded with calls from anxious clients in the wake of President-elect Donald Trump’s victory, but they are urging people to avoid rash decisions in the midst of uncertainty.
“If you do the math, on 400,000 people per year, and even if you were going for two to three million, that still gets you to seven and a half years to get to those three million”.
Local immigration law expert, Michael Olvera, said their impact is everywhere.
“All of those people who are technically removable have constitutional rights – most importantly, the right to due process”.
Since the start of his campaign, Trump dedicated himself to insulting, denigrating and threatening the Mexican people.
Third, Trump will begin work on a wall on the border with Mexico. He appeared to mock a reporter with a physical disability and threatened to sue several women who accused him of assaulting them. He could also make those temporary visas available first to undocumented immigrants who are already working, paying taxes and contributing to the economies in which they’ve lived, sometimes for decades.
Presumably, this is just a small peek at the proposals Kobach is preparing for President Trump.
Previously, Trump used the 2 million figure but did not say all 2 million were in the country illegally.
Looper says its important to be prepared for all possibilities.
BURNETT: Now, listen to the other side – Roy Beck, at NumbersUSA, which shares Donald Trump’s aspirations for stricter immigration.
Donald Trump insists Americans have nothing to fear when he gets into the White House.
The group also said public funding for big projects has been drying up in some areas, and that it would welcome new spending. And I think that if President-elect Trump’s administration is getting more aggressive at immigration enforcement, DHS and ICE and DOJ have got to be prepared for a barrage of lawsuits challenging the way that the immigration laws are enforced.
