How DACA affects the health of America's children

Still, activists on both sides of the issue are bracing for the White House to announce as soon as this week that he'll move to dismantle the program.

Trump is expected to allow the roughly 800,000 immigrants affected remain in the USA legally until their current work visas expire.

As The Hill notes, DACA granted work permits and deferred deportation for almost 800,000 undocumented people who arrived in the United States as children.

Forcing the issue is the fact that attorneys general in 10 states threatened to sue the government unless the Trump administration starts to dismantle the program by September 5.

- The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) refers to protections put in place by the last administration for undocumented immigrants who were brought to the USA as children during the last 10 years. While President Trump pledged on the campaign trail that he would abolish the program, last month he told the Associated Press that DACA recipients should "rest easy". Meanwhile, the Harvey catastrophe makes the optics of the decision even more brutal for the White House, Axios says. What's more likely, they say, is for negotiations to continue behind the scenes until leaders are confident they have a deal that can pass. I'm also a sociologist who studies the lives of immigrants. She, her mother and her older sister are not USA citizens, but her two younger siblings are. You could say the same of Texas attorney general Ken Paxton, the ringleader of the group threatening to haul DACA before the same unfriendly Texas federal judge who stopped Barack Obama's effort to expand DACA and also provide protection for the parents of DREAMers.

Asked if she has thought about what she will do if she loses her protective status that she received four years ago and could face deportation, Romero said she hasn't come up with a plan. "As people's two-year deferments and work authorization expire they should not be renewed". They would have to have entered the United States before they turned 16, however, and to have lived continuously in the country since June 15, 2007.

The impact could linger for several weeks or longer, depending on how long it takes Texas refiners to return to normal operations. The refineries affected represent over 17 percent of the US gas production, around 3 million barrels a day, according to Tribune.

Sanchez Marban has been advocating for immigrant causes since before the DACA program existed.

"He's been advised that it's in his political interest for him to be the one to make the decision to terminate the program because he'll get the credit", said a source who is familiar with the conversations inside the White House.

Trump has been all over the map on what he really thinks of DACA. Now that the program's protections may end, she said, she fears for her future.

Demonstrators swarmed the streets of Midtown from Columbus Circle to Trump Tower Wednesday night to show their support for immigrants across the country.

"I have the particular patriotism of an immigrant, rooted in deep gratitude and appreciation for a country founded on a dream of fairness", he writes in closing.
