Mark Zuckerberg, Tim Cook, and Jeff Bezos Urge Congress to Extend DACA

President Donald Trump addresses a joint news conference with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg in the East Room of the White House in Washington U.S

In a letter dated January 10, the executives asked lawmakers to extend the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program by January 19, a month and half before it is set to expire.

Antrim County Republican Party Chairman Randy Bishop says he, and other supporters of President Trump, want him to hold firm on his request that any immigration legislation include money for border security. DACA protects between 700,000 and 800,000 young people. She has lived in this country almost her entire life.

"And during their lifetime, leaders in Washington have not been able to reach an agreement to fix the broken immigration system that allowed them to enter in the first place".

The outcome of the immigration debate will impact northern MI, including so called Dreamers who benefit from the DACA program.

"They would hope that Congress and the president will come to a quick deal, or come up with a solution to give them a path to legal status".

More complications followed as intense coughing caused her C-section wound to open and a hematoma was found in her abdomen. She also mentioned how fortunate Olympia is to have such fantastic aunts and grandmother. "And then everything went bad".

Obama instituted the program to protect young people whose parents brought them into the country as minors when they entered the US without legal permission.

DACA recipients will be allowed to stay in the US for the remainder of their two-year authorizations.

Advocates around the country have rallied to urge passage of the DREAM Act - the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act - to provide a pathway to citizenship for DACA beneficiaries.

The complex and arguably confusing negotiations come as a federal judge in California has temporarily blocked the Trump administration's decision to end the deferred action program, for undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children.

"The government considered none of this at all when they made a decision to rescind DACA", he said at the hearing.

Gentex (GNTX) Rating Increased to Buy at ValuEngine

"Nearly everyone - 97 percent - is either in school or in the workforce". These Dreamers have earned our help.

The archbishop said USA business leaders feel DACA recipients "are vital to our economic future".

But the fate of those protections has become an open question ever since President Trump moved to rescind DACA in September. However, the vast majority of the American people and members of Congress agree that these issues should be addressed, and there is achievable middle ground to do so.

"This debate is passionate and partisan, as it should be", Archbishop Gomez said.

"We need the wall for security, for safety, we need the wall from stopping the drugs from pouring in", he continued.

Facebook is about to make a huge change to your news feed
Facebook said it's shifting the focus of its news feed to promote "meaningful" posts, mostly from family and friends. Facebook's stock price dropped nearly 6 percent on Friday morning before regaining some ground.

The Justice Department said in a statement late Tuesday night that Alsup's ruling doesn't change the fact that the program is illegal and and it's within the agency's power to end it. "And if you do it the right way, in this country at least, you can win", Becerra said. "But we must also recognize that we are a nation of opportunity because we are a nation of laws", Trump said in September, explaining the decision.
