Letters to the Editor: Middlebury College stands behind DACA students

12 Septembre 2017

DACA is a policy instituted by the Obama administration following the failure of Congress to pass the DREAM act, a bill that would have extended amnesty for undocumented immigrants who entered the country as children. California has the most DACA recipients of any state. "We don't bait and switch in this country". The lawsuit states that the administration has violated the right to due process for DACA recipients, who will be at risk for immediate deportation once their protected status expires, as the administration has stopped all renewals. There are 800,000 DREAMers here, and they are giving back to the United States by becoming outstanding members of their communities.

Gonzalez has joined 10 other Great Lakes Colleges Association (GLCA) presidents in a joint statement titled "Pathways for Childhood Arrivals" regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

About a dozen people gathered Monday at a park in Los Banos to rally support for Dreamers in Merced County. Once accepted into the program, the recipient has to renew every two years.

We would like to reiterate our decision previous year to welcome applications from undocumented and DACA students and to enroll the best and most promising students regardless of their circumstances. Many of them have grown up, found work commensurate with their education, and begun their own families. Many of them have gone to college and built careers here, and have a lot to contribute to this country.

"This is where I grew up; I have nowhere to go", said Lopez.

Do they lack Champions League experience?
Now we're just back in it and back to the best cup competition in the world. It's more comparable to the style of the Portuguese league.

Most importantly, he said, it's unfair to punish people who were brought here as children without any choice.

Trump last week said he would end the program, which was created in 2012 by his Democratic predecessor Barack Obama, effective in March, giving Congress six months to determine the fate of the almost 800,000 young adults covered by DACA, dubbed "Dreamers".

The states contend Trump broke protocols for changing the policy, formally called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival, as required by the Administrative Procedure Act.

"Neither I, nor the University of California, take the step of suing the federal government lightly, especially not the very agency I led", said Napolitano, who denied that being a former head represented any conflict of interest, or required her recusal.

There also is a separate lawsuit by 15 attorneys general, led by the state of NY, but Becerra said it was important for California to act independently given the impact on its economy and the large numbers of immigrant youths here.
