The Demise of DAPA Wasn’t Enough?

{1:54 minutes to read} The decision by the Trump administration to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a nasty, mean-spirited act that does nothing to:
  • Increase US security;
  • Support the rule of law; or
  • Help the US economy.
And the fact that the Attorney General mentioned in his announcement that these Dreamers were taking jobs away from US workers was the vilest lie of all.
So, let's be clear. That's what it is. A lie. It’s not a difference of opinion or a mistaken interpretation. It’s a lie by people who want to curtail immigration for racial and social reasons.
  • The US economy is growing by 150,000 to 250,000 jobs per month; the Dreamers feed this growing economy.
  • Dreamers pay taxes.
  • Dreamers often take jobs that US workers don't want.
  • When illegal workers become legal, employers can no longer pay them substandard wages, and it, therefore, raises the wages for all workers.
So, let's at least put an end to that lie.
People with DACA, Take Immediate Action!
Perhaps more importantly, people with DACA need to take immediate action. If their DACA will expire on or before March 5, 2018, they only have until October 5 of this year to file to extend DACA. Filing for your extension in December, January or February will be too late.
Contact an Immigration Attorney
Finally, if you have DACA or TPS, you need to speak with an immigration attorney immediately to know your rights before these programs expire and you lose these rights forever.
