The Status of DACA Still Unknown

The Status of DACA Still Unknown 


While President Trump urges Congress to make a decision concerning the changes that are to affect DACA recipients, in addition to other immigration laws, the Department of Homeland Security has taken it upon themselves to draft up some changes or regulations they deem may be necessary in immigration reform. 
“The department has been examining a range of subtle modifications to immigration policies that could have major consequences, including limiting protections for unaccompanied minors who come to the US illegally, expanding the use of speedy deportation proceedings, and tightening visa programs in ways that could limit legal immigration to the US, according to multiple sources familiar with the plans.

Trump Wants to Ban Immigrants from Welfare

Trump thinks that new immigrants coming to the United States should be able to support themselves for at least five years before being able to receive welfare. In addition, he strongly feels that immigrants coming to the US should more than likely never need assistance, hence, preventing those whom he suspects to be a “public charge” from coming into the United States.

DACA'S Fate Still Undecided

“Fate of program to protect young immigrants still undecided”
by Alicia Caldwell
Washington Post
As of June 16, the Trump administration remains undecided on the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA) program. Proposed by the Obama administration, DAPA seeks to protect and assist the immigrant parents of US citizens. However, the program has yet to be passed. In response to growing concerns around how this will affect DACA, or the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security has assured that DACA “has not changed” and will remain enforced.
