Admin revokes blocked program to protect immigrant parents

But a Texas District Court imposed an injunction that was upheld by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

The announcement to continue the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA, was made quietly late Thursday.

But he's taken a softer line on the program affecting young immigrants, who are sometimes referred to as "Dreamers".

"We're going to work something out that's going to make people happy and proud", Trump told Time magazine in an interview published in 2016. Nearly a quarter (23 percent) said DACA recipients should be forced to leave the country. "These young men and women were brought to this country not by their own choice, but they grew up in this country and have become as American as any other American".

Many DACA participants arrived in the United States as small children and have little recollection of their birth countries.

Kelly, an appointee of President Trump, rescinded the 2014 order on the five-year anniversary of the implementation of the DACA program.

While DACA doesn't offer a legal immigration status, a path to citizenship and or any permanent protections, it does provide approved immigrants with a valuable work permit good for two years at a time. While it did not explain what obstacle it saw, the apparent reason is that the Trump administration itself has abandoned the legal defense of the policy, and, as a result, the legal controversy has ceased to exist. "The fact is that most of our community is still living in fear because of the draconian immigration policies of this administration". During his presidential campaign, Trump said former President Barack Obama had "defied federal law and the Constitution", and that he would "immediately terminate" DACA when he became president.

An Obama-era immigration programme meant to protect parents of USA citizens and legal residents from deportation has been formally cancelled, fulfilling a key campaign promise from President Donald Trump, the Homeland Security Department announced on Friday.

The 2014 DAPA program extending protections to parents never took effect because it was blocked in federal court; later, the U.S. Supreme Court let that ruling stand in a 4-4 split decision. When Obama rolled out the program, it drew praise from some educators and immigration advocates and criticism from Republicans in Congress who say the president overstepped his authority. "We are an asset and I think he's realizing that".

That program, like the one for young immigrants, was created with a policy memo, not by legislation. Based on Thursday's announcement from the Trump administration, young immigrants may now face a much different future from their parents or relatives.

Thanks for your continued support.

. "Instead of deporting as numerous 11 million undocumented immigrants as possible and breaking apart millions of families, we should change the law to deal fairly with those people who are here now with longstanding ties to our country".
