DACA ruling 'shouldn't let Congress off hook,' WA Dreamer says

Northern Michigan Watching Immigration & DACA Debate Closely

That's the name for undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children.

Commentary: U.S. Senator Tom Udall released a powerful video highlighting the stories of seven Dreamers from New Mexico as part of his fight for a permanent solution on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Last night's court ruling temporarily blocking the president's DACA decision does not lessen the urgency of Congress' duty to act. Numerous executives signing the letters represent some of the wealthiest business in America, including Apple's Tim Cook, Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg, Amazon.com's (and Washington Post owner) Jeff Bezos, General Motors' Mary Barra, and AT&T's Randall Stephenson.

"We write to urge Congress to act immediately and pass a permanent bipartisan legislative solution to enable Dreamers who are now living, working, and contributing to our communities to continue doing so", the letter states. This window of action leaves only 45 days for implementation prior to March 5th.

Quiñonez, immigration advocates, and even former homeland security officials are pushing lawmakers for a solution by the middle of this month, so federal authorities have enough time to implement a new program.

"F$3 ailure to act in time will lead to businesses losing valuable talent, cause disruptions in the workforce, and will result in significant costs", the letter says. Economists estimate that a failure to act could cost the economy $215 billion in gross domestic product, the executives' letter said.

The letter was delivered Wednesday afternoon to House Speaker Paul Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. The letter, organised by the Coalition for the American Dream, is set to run as a full-page advertisement in The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times on Thursday. Silicon Valley executives were among the most vocal opponents of the White House's decision to end the program, often citing a CATO Institute study that found that ending DACA could cost the USA economy $215 billion. He has also urged Congress to act on the matter before the program officially ends.

"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". Supporters of the tax cuts, including many of those who signed the letter, argued that American workers would benefit from the corporate tax cuts in the form of higher wages and an expanding jobs market.

"I think best case scenario for us right now is Dream act legislation attached with border security, and what worries us is the longer this conversation goes on, longer negotiations are drawn out, the possibility of other harmful things being attached", said Quiñonez of the ongoing negotiation.
