Pennsylvania among 15 states suing over President Trump's rollback of DACA

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

Even former President Obama, who established DACA via an executive order, cast aside his reticence to criticize his successor.

Walker Huntington says it is being hoped that the US Congress will come up with a legislation that will see DACA recipients remaining in the country.

Illinois is among 15 states suing to block President Donald Trump's plan to end a program protecting young immigrants from deportation.

The lawsuit claims that Washington state is home to more than 17,800 Dreamers and estimates that ending DACA would cost the Washington economy $258 million in lost tax revenue and $6.4 billion in GDP growth over 10 years.

"Whether or not you agree with the policy or support President Trump isn't the issue here", Shapiro said in a written statement.

The lawsuit is asking the court to block the administration from scrapping DACA.

In a statement Tuesday, Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller said DACA has protected those residents "who arrived illegally as children, grew up following the rules and are very much a part of our fabric".

It throws the lives of some 800,000 young people (about 27,000 in North Carolina, the Journal's Sarah Newell reported) into limbo and discourages their previous willingness to work within the system.

Cardinal Joseph Tobin of Newark, New Jersey, called the decision "malicious". People who already have a 2-year work visa through DACA that's set to expire before March 5, 2018 they have until Oct. 5, 2017 to submit their renewal paperwork. So I think the president was right to give us the time we need to find that compromise.

Educational institutions across the state are getting the word out they don't collect information about citizenship.

Earlier Tuesday, administration spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders repeatedly said that if the GOP-controlled Congress failed to act they should "get out of the way". And no matter if we do manage to pass it, which I believe we can and will be a huge victory, I can only imagine what people must be feeling right now.

And the larger problem is that we do not have control of our borders.

In written declarations, Amazon and Microsoft, both based in Washington state, emphasized their commitment to diversity and said that dismantling the program would damage their businesses.
