Biz Leaders to Congress: Ending DACA Will Create Workforce Crisis

Immigrant and civil rights organizations condemn Trump's remarks, call for passage of Dream act before January 19th

This signaled an apparent shift in tone from the White House on the status of Dreamers, but Dreamers locally are still skeptical about their status in the US under a Trump Administration.

'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, ' they said in the letter published in the New York Times and Wall Street Journal. "The imminent termination of the DACA program is creating an impending crisis for workforces across the country".

Those signing the letter included Apple CEO Tim Cook, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and General Motors CEO Mary Barra.

On Tuesday, a federal judge in California moved to temporarily block the administration's efforts to end DACA while challenges to Trump's move play out in court.

"Failure to act in time will lead to businesses losing valuable talent, cause disruptions in the workforce, and will result in significant costs", said the letter sent to Senate and House leaders of both parties.

'It is critical that Congress act to pass legislation before January 19th.

DACA was implemented in June 2012 by the Obama administration after the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, which would have given Dreamers a way to apply for permanent residency, failed to pass Congress. DACA grants Dreamers two years of deferred action from deportation and also makes them eligible for a work permit. It was supposed to cover illegal immigrants brought here at a young age through no fault of their own; now we are talking about an amnesty for the adults who knowingly defied our laws.

On Monday, President Trump held a publicized, bipartisan meeting with lawmakers to discuss continuing protections for those who fell under the DACA program and broader immigration reform.

"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", Trump tweeted Wednesday morning. Before there is any hint, suggestion, or consummation of a deal on the DACA Dreamers (and only the Dreamers, all 750,000 of them), certain enforcement measures must be in place, the most important being E-Verify (which assures America employers are hiring only legal workers).

In a poll released Thursday by Quinnipiac University, 79 per cent of American voters said they want "Dreamers" to be able to stay in the USA and apply for citizenship.
