  • In September, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced
    the finish of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals
    program.
  • DACA provides proxy insurance from deportation to
    some unapproved immigrants brought to the US as
    children.
  • Hundreds of colleges and universities — including
    Harvard, Yale, and Stanford — wrote a minute propelling the Senate
    and the House of Representatives to strengthen the roughly 800,000
    DACA recipients.

 

Hundreds of colleges and universities — including Harvard, Yale,
and Stanford —
sealed a minute propelling members of the Senate and the House of
Representatives to “pass a long-term legislative fix as shortly as
probable to protect” the category of immature immigrants famous as
Dreamers.

The letter, addressed to House Speaker Paul Ryan, House Minority
Leader Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, urged lawmakers to “take
the movement that President Trump requested when he rescinded the
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy, and pass a
long-term legislative fix as shortly as probable to protect
Dreamers, superb immature people brought to the country as
children.”

DACA provides proxy insurance from deportation for some
immigrants vital in the US illegally who were brought to the
country as children.

The colleges pronounced that they had seen the program’s “remarkable
people up close” and that they have done “incredible
contributions to the country and its economy and security.”

The minute comes a month after
Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the finish of the

DACA program, an movement that could impact roughly 800,000
recipients next year, yet Trump suggested he wanted Congress
to rise a deputy for the program.

Harvard’s president, Drew Faust, formerly cursed the
Trump administration’s decision to finish the program.

“This vicious policy recognizes conjunction probity nor mercy,” Faust
wrote in an email to village members shared with Business
Insider. “In the months to come, we will make every bid to
have the voice heard, in the halls of Congress and elsewhere,
about the need for the protections of DACA to continue.”
