In being sent back? Many people have
In 2012, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was created by President Obama. It was created for the children (also known as dreamers) that were brought to America illegally, so that they would not have to be sent back to where they came from or deported. For the 800,000 immigrants that need this program, they may face deportation because of the expiration of their deferral. In September, President Trump rescinded the DACA program. On January 9th, 2018 federal judge, William Alsup ordered President Trump to renew the program although the agency is not required to accept new applications of those who have not previously applied. This is very important because 800,000 may be deported to other countries or they will become US citizens. And if they are required to be deported, what would the reason for them being sent back? Many people have been coming to America for a better life, and entering the country illegally. Such a large amount of people are here that were not US citizens and as a result President Obama created the DACA program for children to live here for now. And then later would deal with how they would become US citizens. And then in September of 2017, President Trump rescinded the program so that members of the program would have to be deported. Although on January 9th, 2018 a federal judge has now required President Trump to resume the program and allow the agency to renew applications that have expired. And under what circumstances can he repeal the program? He says that these people will not help to make America great again, but how may sending them back make the country greater? Learning about the constitution in class relates to this topic because President Trump states that the program created is unconstitutional. Although repealing the program and deporting the immigrants is a more important issue than the debate over whether it may be constitutional or not. Also the balance of powers among the legislative, executive, and judicial branches. Congress didn’t come to solution for the immigrants so then the president had a temporary solution and now the federal judge is saying that the program cannot be repealed. This is also an example of checks and balances and how each branch is making decisions of what to do with the program. President Trump should not be able to repeal the program just because it is not what he thinks should be done. 800,000 immigrants would have to be deported when they are being given a chance to work and to support our country. DACA was a solution, but now what has to be done is find a way to allow them to become citizens so that this is no longer an issue. And that all branches will have a say in what is done to resolve this problem.
