Homeland Security: Program Protecting Young Immigrants May Be Illegal

Homeland Security: Program Protecting Young Immigrants May Be Illegal

The president was asked about Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly's comments to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus that President Obama's amnesty for illegal immigrants who arrived as minors, DACA, might be terminated due to legal challenges from Republican states.

Kelly reportedly told members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus that although he personally supports the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, he can not guarantee that President Donald Trump's administration will back it in court, according to Politico. DACA gives hundreds of thousands of young people brought into the country as children protection from deportation and a work permit.

While he quoted Kelly as saying Attorney General Jeff Sessions, not Trump, was in charge of the decision whether to fight DACA, Gutierrez said, "Kelly was basically telling us DACA is facing a death sentence".

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton last month threatened to sue the federal government if DACA is not withdrawn by September.

Members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus pushed Kelly for an update on whether the administration would defend the program. "He didn't say that they wouldn't, but he didn't say that they would", said New Jersey Democratic Sen.

"He's personally for it". More than half of Castro's Texas constituency identifies as Hispanic. "He said he would consider it".

President Donald Trump has stepped up immigration enforcement and touts it as a measure to protect citizens from crimes committed by undocumented immigrants. He said they can "rest easy" and that his administration is "not after the dreamers, we are after the criminals".

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services said it had received almost 850,000 applications for DACA status by June 2016.

But they expressed skepticism that the Republican-controlled Congress would pass any law to spare undocumented immigrants from deportation - or that the Trump administration would defend DACA in court.

"This is what he's being told by different attorneys, that if it goes to court it might not survive", DHS spokesman David Lapan told The Washington Post on Wednesday. He declined to say whether the Trump administration would mount such a challenge. Then, Kelly pushed for two bills that cracked down on illegal immigration.
