WHO KNEW? GO FIGURE?
WHY AREN’T ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT PARENTS RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN DACA CHILDREN?
To make a long story short (documentation below)
JUNE 15, 2012 PRESIDENT- OBAMA SAID DACA IS SPECIFICALLY FOR CERTAIN YOUNG PEOPLE SOMETIMES CALLED “DREAMERS.”
AT LEAST SIX STATES—CALIFORNIA, MINNESOTA, NEW MEXICO, OREGON, TEXAS AND WASHINGTON—CURRENTLY ALLOW UNDOCUMENTED STUDENTS TO RECEIVE STATE FINANCIAL AID.
WHY ARE COERCED TAXPAYERS IN WASHINGTON STATE RESPONSIBLE FOR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS CHILDREN’S?
WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING DACA’S DREAMERS A FINANCIAL NIGHTMARE FOR HARD WORKING, TAXPAYING AMERICAN CITIZENS?
ANOTHER TRICKLEDOWN UNFUNDED MANDATE CAUSED BY OBAMA (D) ADMINISTRATION OF TOP DOWN GOVERNMENT?
SEPT 6, 2017 WHAT IS DACA?
I am looking for a PDF or website that has the actual text of the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) order that President Obama issued in 2012. Is there a PDF out there for it?
DACA was not legislation or an executive order; IT TECHNICALLY comes from a memo issued by then Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano on June 15th 2012.
IT IS NOT CALLED DACA IN THE MEMO THOUGH (WHICH IS WHY IT’S NOT AS EASY TO GOOGLE FOR).
June 15, 2012, DHS Janet Napolitano’s memo and Obama’s announcement the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
WHO KNEW? GO FIGURE?
Obama’s DREAMERS, DACA recipients are not children or orphans, they are called individuals, THEY ARE ALLOWED TO LIVE, WORK AND STUDY IN THE U.S.A.
In the U.S.A, the land of law and order, there are 11 million illegal’s (the majority are law abiding) immigrants, there are 800 hundred thousand illegal foreign mostly young adults, (the majority are law abiding)
BUT, UNDER DACA THEY ARE NOT CHILDREN THE USCIS PROCESS SHALL ALSO BE AVAILABLE TO INDIVIDUALS SUBJECT TO A FINAL ORDER OF REMOVAL REGARDLESS OF THEIR AGE.
JUNE 15TH 2012 Read Obama’s new DHS Policy full remarks
THE PRESIDENT- OBAMA: Good afternoon, everybody. This morning, Secretary Napolitano announced new actions my administration will take to mend our nation’s immigration policy, to make it more fair, more efficient, and more just — SPECIFICALLY FOR CERTAIN YOUNG PEOPLE SOMETIMES CALLED “DREAMERS.”
THE FOREIGNER DREAMERS ACT?
THE PRESIDENT- OBAMA: Now, both parties wrote this legislation. And a year and a half ago, Democrats passed the DREAM ACT in the House, but Republicans walked away from it. It got 55 votes in the Senate, but Republicans blocked it.
The DACA went into effect in August, within the 60 day DHS memo new policy requirement..
THE PRESIDENT- OBAMA: Over the next few months, eligible INDIVIDUALS who do not present a risk to national security or public safety will be able to request temporary relief from deportation proceedings and apply for WORK authorization.
JUNE 15TH 2012 Obama ignored two important questions.
THE AMERICAN DREAMERS?
Q — foreigners over American workers.
THE PRESIDENT: Excuse me, sir. It’s not time for questions, sir.
Q What about American workers who are unemployed while you import foreigners?
SEPT 5, 2017, EXCUSE ME, OBAMA. IT IS TIME FOR QUESTIONS, SIR.
WHAT IS DACA?
1 day ago – What is DACA? Friday, September 1, 2017. AG Jeff Sessions making Tuesday announcement on ‘Dreamers:’ Watch live, live updates. Updated on September 5, 2017
The program that allowed as many as 800,000 undocumented immigrants to remain in the U.S. will soon end, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Tuesday.
“The program known as DACA that was effectuated under the Obama administration is being rescinded,” Sessions said.
Sessions said Congress will be given six months to address the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals- or DACA – program. The policy was put in place by former President Barack Obama in 2012 and allows certain undocumented immigrants who were brought into the U.S. as children to receive for work permits and deferments from deportation.
“DACA was effectuated by the previous administration through executive action, without proper statutory authority and with no established end-date, after Congress’ repeated rejection of proposed legislation that would have accomplished a similar result,” Sessions wrote in a letter explaining the decision. “Such an open-ended circumvention of immigration laws was an unconstitutional exercise of authority by the Executive Branch.”
DACA covers those who were brought to the U.S. before age 16 and who were under age 31 as of June 15, 2012, among other criteria.
NBC News is reporting the Trump administration will stop considering new applications for legal status dated after Tuesday but will allow any DACA recipients with a permit set to expire before March 5, 2018 to apply for a two-year renewal.
Under the plan announced by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the Trump administration will stop considering new applications for legal status dated after Tuesday, but will allow any DACA recipients with a permit set to expire before March 5, 2018, the opportunity to apply for a two-year renewal
As many as 800,000 people – known as “Dreamers” – have applied for DACA status, according to the Justice Department. Mexico is the most common country of origin, followed by El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. Over half of all Dreamers live in California and Texas.
President Trump has signaled he wants to end the program but vowed any changes to DACA would be made “with heart.” Early reports said Trump plans to end the program but will allow a six-month delay to give Congress time to address the status of those already covered under DACA.
Sessions announcement came on the same day as a deadline imposed by several Republican-led states threatening to challenge the plan in court if it was not rescinded.
BREAKING: Texas AG Paxton is joined by 9 other state AGs & 1 gov in urging Trump administration to end #DACA. If not, they say they’ll sue.
TECHNICALLY THIS IS DACA
MEMO, JUNE 15TH 2012 FROM: JANET NAPOLITANO SECRETARY OF HOMELAND SECURITY
Secretary U.S. Department of Homeland Security
Washington, DC 20528
June 15, 2012
FOR: David V. Aguilar
Acting Commissioner, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
Alejandro Mayorkas Director, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration
John Morton Director, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
FROM: Janet Napolitano Secretary of Homeland security
SUBJECT: Exercising Prosecutorial Discretion with Respect to
Individuals Who Came to the United States as Children
By this memorandum, I am setting forth how, in the exercise of
our prosecutorial discretion, the Department of Homeland Security
(DHS) should enforce the Nation’s immigration laws against certain
young people who were brought to this country as children and know
only this country as home.
As a general matter, these individuals lacked the intent to violate the law
and our ongoing review of pending removal cases is already offering administrative closure to many of them.
However, additional measures are necessary to ensure that our enforcement resources are not expended on these low priority cases but are instead appropriately focused on people who meet our enforcement priorities.
The following criteria should be satisfied before an individual is considered
for an exercise of prosecutorial discretion pursuant to this memorandum:
- came to the United States under the age of sixteen;
- has continuously resided in the United States for a least five years
preceding the date of this memorandum and is present in the United
States on the date of this memorandum;
- is currently in school, has graduated from high school, has obtained
a general education development certificate, or is an honorably discharged
veteran of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States;
- has not been convicted of a felony offense, a significant misdemeanor
offense, multiple misdemeanor offenses, or otherwise poses a threat to
national security or public safety; and
- is not above the age of thirty.
Our Nation’ s immigration laws must be enforced in a strong and sensible
manner. They are not designed to be blindly enforced without consideration
given to the individual circumstances of each case. Nor are they designed
to remove productive young people to countries where they may not have
lived or even speak the language.
Indeed, many of these young people have already contributed to our country
in significant ways. Prosecutorial discretion, which is used in so many other
areas, is especially justified here. As part of this exercise of prosecutorial
discretion, the above criteria are to be considered whether or not an individual
is already in removal proceedings or subject to a final order of removal.
No individual should receive deferred action under this memorandum unless
they first pass a background check and requests for relief pursuant to this
memorandum are to be decided on a case by case basis.
DHS cannot provide any assurance that relief will be granted in all
- With respect to individuals who are encountered by U.S. Immigration
and Customs Enforcement (ICE), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP)
, or U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS):
- With respect to individuals who meet the above criteria, ICE and CBP
should immediately exercise their discretion, on an individual basis, in
order to prevent low priority individuals from being placed into removal
proceedings or removed from the United States.
- USCIS is instructed to implement this memorandum consistent with
its existing guidance regarding the issuance of notices to appear.
- With respect to individuals who are in removal proceedings but
not yet subject to a final order of removal, and who meet the above
- ICE should exercise prosecutorial discretion, on an individual basis
, for individuals who meet the above criteria by deferring action for a period
of two years, subject to renewal, in order to prevent low priority individuals
from being removed from the United States.
- ICE is instructed to use its Office of the Public Advocate to permit
individuals who believe they meet the above criteria to identify themselves
through a clear and efficient process.
- ICE is directed to begin implementing this process within 60 days of
the date of this memorandum.
- ICE is also instructed to immediately begin the process of deferring
action against individuals who meet the above criteria whose cases
have already been identified through the ongoing review of pending
cases before the Executive Office for Immigration Review.
- With respect to the individuals who are not currently in removal
proceedings and meet the above criteria, and pass a background check:
- USCIS should establish a clear and efficient process for exercising
prosecutorial discretion, on an individual basis, by deferring action
against individuals who meet the above criteria and are at least 15
years old, for a period of two years, subject to renewal, in order
to prevent low priority individuals from being placed into removal
proceedings or removed from the United States.
- The USCIS process shall also be available to individuals subject
to a final order of removal regardless of their age.
- US CIS is directed to begin implementing this process within 60
days of the date of this memorandum. For individuals who are granted deferred action by either ICE or USCIS, USCIS shall accept applications to determine
whether these individuals qualify for work authorization during this period of deferred action.
This memorandum confers no substantive right, immigration status or pathway to citizenship.
Only the Congress, acting through its legislative authority, can confer these rights.
It remains for the executive branch, however, to set forth policy for the exercise of discretion within the framework of the existing law.
I have done so here.
Janet Napolitano Secretary of Homeland security
