Democrats Want Protection For DREAMers Included In Government Funding Bill

DACA Demonstrations Ring Hollow

"As Congress is working towards a comprehensive long-term agreement to fund government operations, House Republicans are committed to keeping the government open".

Five House Republicans from Pennsylvania are among almost three-dozen GOP lawmakers asking House Speaker Paul Ryan to hold a vote this month on legislation dealing with the fate of 800,000 people who were brought to the US illegally when they were children.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: It could happen. "The Democrats are really looking for something that is very risky to our country".

"I'm not for shutting down the government", Coffman said. They want to have illegal immigrants, in many cases, people that we don't want in our country.

The NAE also is expected to release an interactive map of immigration stories from all 435 congressional districts and to coordinate events around the country, including statements issued in Pennsylvania supporting DACA, according to the NAE press release.

SNELL: Democrats say that's wrong on multiple counts. "We can do this if we quit grandstanding and quit engaging in these sorts of stunts, and I hope we will." .

Many dreamers have no memory of coming to America.

"We must pass legislation that protects DACA recipients from deportation and gives them the opportunity to apply for a more secured status in our country as soon as possible".

Despite the growing unease among immigration advocates and some lawmakers, Republican leaders in Congress have been slow to act.

But activists and many Democrats are specific they want a path to citizenship, and they say they're exhausted of waiting.

SPD's Martin Schulz wants United States of Europe by 2025
But he met the fate of Merkel's previous challengers, with a campaign losing steam amid a string of regional poll defeats. The leader of Germany 's main socialist party has called for a United States of Europe by 2025.

Democrats have made that path to citizenship central to their DACA proposal, arguing that without it, people allowed to live and work in the United States permanently would essentially become second-class citizens.

Dreamers is the name used for those immigrants brought to the United States as children but who remain undocumented, or illegal.

"We weren't at fault for this and we're done everything we could to be Americans", Evangelista said.

Sens. Kamala Harris of California and Bernie Sanders of Vermont have been extremely outspoken on the issue, repeatedly asserting their opposition to any spending bill that neglects Dreamers.

Democrats don't have much leverage in Congress, except when it comes to spending bills.

If the Democrat-led discharge petition succeeded - such legislative measures hardly ever do - it would force a House floor vote on the bill, skipping over leadership.

Texas Sen. John Cornyn, the No. 2 Republican in the Senate, told reporters that the immigration talks can wait until next year. A number of Senate and House Republicans say they want a deal.

In addition to the human cost of such strict immigration policies, rescinding DACA makes very little sense financially, especially considering Illinoi's budget issues. Congress has three months to find a legislative solution. And so absolutely we think there should be a solution now.

Still, Coffman warned that a DACA solution - and protections for Dreamers in general - will face challenges from the left and right.

New American Economy set up what members call a war room inside the Capitol on Wednesday as part of a day of protests and lobbying by immigration activists.
