(President Trump) "Sometime today or over the weekend we'll have a decision".

"Having said all of that, there are people who are in limbo", he continued.

Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell joined 40 other senators and sent a letter to Trump in July, asking him to protect DACA.

"These are American children", said Rep. Joe Crowley, D-New York, in an impassioned press call with reporters August 31.

Responding to a question about Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, on his hometown radio station WCLO in Janesville, Wisconsin, Ryan said Congress was working on a legislative fix to preserve the problem.

Local immigration attorney Hannah Stone said if Trump were to end the program, new applications and renewals would not be processed, but current DACA recipients would likely be able to stay until their authorization expires - the program requires renewal every two years. "But the president could show his compassion by not prosecuting or persecuting DACA kids, and give peace of mind to these young people".

Trump blasts Comey's exoneration of Clinton as part of a 'rigged system'
Comey's announcement, saying they've reviewed partially redacted interview transcripts that indicate Mr. The letter blasted Comey for the premature drafting of the letter before the investigation concluded.

In February, Trump said the DACA executive order was one of the most hard issues he has had to grapple with. Many of the DACA recipients, some of whose records I reviewed, have outstanding accomplishments and laudable ambitions, which if achieved, will be of great benefit and service to our country.

The popular Obama administration program - which gives protections from deportation to undocumented immigrants that were brought to the United States as children to work or study - has always been targeted by Republicans as an overreach of executive authority.

Aguilar says that without the DACA policy, he fears he'd be an immediate target for deportation, since he doesn't qualify for family-sponsored immigration or the program for high-skilled foreign workers. Their letter argues that Dreamers play a vital role in the USA economy and help ensure U.S. competitiveness. More than 17,000 are eligible, according to data from the Migration Policy Institute.

But it's a seriously good sign for DACA recipients in the medium run.

"Our economy would lose $460.3 billion from the national gross domestic product (GDP) and $24.6 billion in Social Security and Medicare tax contributions, " read the letter, which was posted on FWD.us, an immigration reform group founded by Mark Zuckerberg, noting that those protected by DACA grew up in the United States, are registered with the government, are subject to extensive background checks, and pay income taxes. Social Security numbers obtained through the program are valid for life, she noted.

Hong Mei Pang, immigration rights program manager at Chinese for Affirmation Action, characterized Trump's possible repeal of DACA as a "full frontal attack on all immigrants, regardless of what your status is". DACA has allowed these young people to provide a positive economic impact to the United States, with a recent report finding that almost 60 percent of young DACA recipients obtained new jobs, 49 percent opened their first bank account, 45 percent had increased job earnings and 33 percent obtained their first credit card. This is a systemic attack on our communities predicated by xenophobia.
