There is reason to believe that the Trump administration plans to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that protects almost 600,000 immigrants who entered the country without documentation as children.

"That's an important position because we can not make a 2,200 mile (3,540 km) wall a condition for passing the Dream Act and we've been very clear from the start", said Senator Dick Durbin, a senior Democrat who has been working for the past 16 years to legislate protections for the Dreamers.

Frosh, a Democrat, joined the attorneys general of California, Minnesota and ME to challenge the decision by President Donald J. Trump in federal court in California. If this action was done, a lawsuit against DACA would be dismissed.

"Maybe I'll still apply (to universities in the U.S.)", Karla said.

DACA individuals are not eligible for welfare or government benefits, and approximately 24 percent of those aged 25 and older have purchased homes and 6 percent have started their own businesses, the chamber said.

According to CNN, a move similar to Trump's recent DACA decision could be on the horizon, which could lead to almost a half a million immigrants losing their protections under the law. Campuses across the state could also be hurt by Trump's decision, including Fresno City College. Immigration is an important issue in the state. The narrative that the media is using a lot is that a lot of DACA recipients were children when they came to the United States, and should they be deported, they will be deported to countries that they do not know. In fact, the POTUS has mandated the Republican-controlled Congress to come up with an alternative to DACA within six months, adding that he will revisit the issue if the Congress fails to deliver what he asked them to do.

I think the young people should be allowed to stay if they haven't done anything illegal, but we are a nation of rules and laws.

"I'm anxious about losing the House now because of this", Bannon said.

U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., also supports Trump's decision, telling Talking Points Memo last week the president was right to allow Congress to create a solution. However, the Department of Homeland Security shows that apprehensions kept the number at check. Whether an executive order such as this is unconstitutional has yet to be decided by the Supreme Court.
