Posted on 06/16/2017 6:24:37 AM PDT by FewsOrange
WASHINGTON President Trump has officially reversed his campaign pledge to deport the so-called Dreamers, undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as small children.
The Department of Homeland Security announced late Thursday night that it would continue the Obama-era program intended to protect those immigrants from deportation and provide them work permits so they can find legal employment.
A fact sheet posted on the departments website says immigrants enrolled in the 2012 program, known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, will continue to be eligible to renew every two years and notes that no work permits will be terminated prior to their current expiration dates....

This is just for people who signed up already?? Think so. I think a court has yet to rule.
Didn’t he just rescind DAPA?
Oh thank goodness this was posted for a 6th time.
Meanwhile... the important part is buried
Now send their parents back.
I’m not sure I even understand this whole thing. What would be the rationale for even wanting children to stay here after their parents are deported?
Why don’t we quit quoting or even referring to the nyt slime rag?
The Art of the Deal!
Nope. All signs have been toward this all along.
I don’t think it refers to small children...I’m thinking higher teens and early 20’s...
I’m in Texas, we see some of this. Parents may have been deported, left children here with relatives. Some children don’t even know if they have family in Mexico. I don’t have a problem with letting some of those stay. They need to become citizens like all other immigrants when they are able/old enough.These cases are exceptions.
"Security Department said another program that has protected hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation will remain in effect, though it did not say for how long..." "How long" pertains to those renewals and unfortunately we all know most of this group will be the first to get consideration for amnesty. Even worse immediate families will no doubt be folding into it making DAPA null anyway.
You give away my county so easily. A small dose of "cruelty" now prevents more anchor babies in the future.
Yes he did. That’s why NYT felt it had to print this fake narrative.
This is for people who don’t read critically. What Trump said is he will allow current work visas to be honored, and when they expire remains a question because the author of the piece got his political point and presented a half-truth. I suggest ‘Dreamers’ use that time to make arrangements to join their parents in their country of origin.
NY Times = Fake News
You should know that.
