Janet Napolitano, University of California sue Trump administration for DACA repeal

The Trump administration's announcement of an end to the programme has sparked nationwide protests, including in NY, where 70 people were arrested for acts of civil disobedience. After a short break, participants will then march to Placita Olvera in downtown Los Angeles, across from Union Station, where the demonstration is expected to end about 7 p.m.

They also must have been 30 or younger when the program was launched and brought to the USA before age 16.

Despite a push in 2013 from Republican strategists who say the party needs to attract more Hispanic voters, House Republicans killed Obama's effort to liberalize the immigration system. More than 800,000 young adults have been granted DACA since the start of the program.

It is critical that DACA recipients pay close attention to their work authorization expiration dates to ensure a renewal application is filed prior to the October 5, 2017 deadline if they meet the eligibility criteria.

We encourage you to contact your Congressional representatives: Sens. President Donald Trump tweeted last week lawmakers have six months to come up with a solution.

At this time of turbulence, with the DACA program facing its possible end, it has hit me particularly hard to think of the faces of my students, waking up to hear their status is now in question. In a statement released on Tuesday, however, President Trump said America is a "nation of opportunity because [it] is a nation of laws".

Furious Hungary vows to fight on against European Union refugee quotas

Patriots Trading QB Jacoby Brissett To Colts For WR Phillip Dorsett
After all, they went so far as to trade with the AFC rival Patriots, and send New England another talented offensive player. It seemed as if Jacoby Brissett was going to be a New England Patriot for at least another year.

18 soldiers killed in ISIL ambush in Egypt's Sinai
The militants were said to be the suspected members of a splinter faction of the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood group. A security guard gestures near the site of an attack that killed at least 26 people in Minya, Egypt May 26, 2017.

Of the more than 3,000 DACA recipients surveyed, 72.7 percent have a spouse, child or sibling who is an American citizen.

New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman said on Wednesday in announcing the lawsuit he is co-leading that the DACA beneficiaries deserved protection. But what worries me is what could follow.

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan has said rescinding the program is "contrary to what makes" the country prosper. From community colleges to some of the country's most selective institutions, higher ed leaders were defiant. After that date, they'll begin losing resident status and the ability to work legally.

In the "60 Minutes" interview, Bannon described himself as a "street fighter" and signaled his intention to battle those, including members of the Republican establishment, who he believes are standing in the way of the "economic nationalist movement".

The development came just a day after Trump ignored the recommendations of GOP House and Senate leaders and sided with Democrats Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY in favor of a three-month extension of the government's borrowing limit.
