Connecticut 'Dreamers' In Limbo, Despite Judge's Order To Keep DACA

Heitkamp said she attended a bipartisan White House meeting Tuesday about the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program or DACA. "The imminent termination of the DACA program is creating an impending crisis for workforces across the country".

The Obama administration introduced DACA in 2012.

"It is critical that Congress act to pass legislation before January 19th", the executives wrote in the letter.

Donna Salcido, immigration services coordinator for InterServ, said there are about 15 St. Joseph residents she sees who are affected by the DACA ruling. DACA would cease March 5 unless Congress can pass the protections into law.

The letter claims that allowing the program to expire could cost the USA economy $215 billion.

The letter, first reported by The Hill, notes "that the overwhelming majority of the American public of all political backgrounds agrees that we should protect Dreamers from deportation".

"This week, President Trump provided leadership on a hard issue that our nation has faced for decades and Main Street members want to help the president address our broken immigration system", said U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.), Chairman of the Republican Main Street Caucus.

An additional mental health facility would be built on the campus of the Mendota Juvenile Treatment Center in Madison for female inmates.

The letter comes after a judge temporarily blocked the decision to end the DACA program, which has protected around 800,000 people who were brought to the US.

Trump, in criticizing U.S. District Judge William Alsup for dealing him a legal setback, slammed the whole "Court System" as "broken and unfair".

After the ruling, Trump blasted the decision on Twitter, calling America's court system "broken" and "unfair".

In a post on Twitter on Wednesday morning, Trump wrote, "It just shows everyone how broken and unfair our Court System is when the opposing side in a case (such as DACA) always runs to the 9th Circuit and nearly always wins before being reversed by higher courts".

Then on Thursday, a bipartisan group of senators presented the president with an agreement on new legislation for immigrants brought to the US illegally as children.

Salcido said contrary to President Trump's statements that those who come here illegally are criminal and underachievers, she sees ambitious people.
