President Trump offered to provide a path to citizenship for 1.8 million 'Dreamers' -- only if he gets his wall. If Democrats and Republicans don't come up with a deal by March 6th, DACA recipients say they are prepared to leave the country.
Alex and Daniela Velez have come to peace with the difficult choice they will need to make if Congress doesn't reach a deal for those covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program by its March 5 deadline: They will leave the country.
"Alex and I are both over this [DACA situation]," said Daniela, who is 24 years old. "If DACA ends, I will leave with Alex. I will close my business, leave work and school."
Should Alex, who is 19, find herself unprotected, she said she is clear on what her plan will be. "I will leave. I will leave America as soon as possible," she said. "I want to be able to leave on my terms. I'm not going to be waiting for anyone to come for me."

Consider this Part 1, the file is far to big for one blog, some real nifty stuff, and I think some all ready know, or maybe not, but anyway here we go. Here's what CEOs and other leaders have to say. And by the way these CEO's are a part of the establishment of the UN UK.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg.
Apple CEO Tim Cook.
Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein.
Disney CEO Bob Iger.
Bloomberg founder and CEO Michael Bloomberg.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai.
JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions said on Tuesday that DACA, which protects 800,000 undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children, "is being rescinded." The Department of Homeland Security will stop processing new applications today.
The administration signaled its plan to end the program last week, and business leaders banded together to ask President Trump and Congress to reconsider. Amazon ( CEO Jeff Bezos, )Apple ( CEO Tim Cook and )Snapchat ( CEO Evan Spiegel as well as hundreds of other executives )signed a letter calling on the president to preserve the program.
The DHS said that it will continue to renew permits that expire in the next six months, giving Congress some time to figure out how to continue to protect current DACA recipients.
Here's what CEOs and other leaders have to say.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg
Mark Zuckerberg was one of over 400 CEOs to sign the letter asking Trump and Congress to save DACA. "This is a sad day for our country," he said in a Facebook ( post Tuesday following Session's announcement. "The decision to end DACA is not just wrong. It is particularly cruel to offer young people the American Dream, encourage them to come out of the shadows and trust our government, and then punish them for it." )
Zuckerberg added, "It's time for Congress to act to pass the bipartisan Dream Act or another legislative solution that gives Dreamers a pathway to citizenship."
Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg
Sheryl Sandberg also posted a reaction on Facebook. "I'm heartbroken and deeply concerned that President Trump's administration has decided to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program," she wrote on Tuesday.
"Dreamers deserve to be protected and live without fear. I'm standing with them and their families today -- and asking Congress to pass the DREAM Act or other permanent legislation right away to give them a much-needed path to citizenship."
In a letter to employees obtained by CNNMoney, Cook said "I am deeply dismayed that 800,000 Americans — including more than 250 of our Apple coworkers — may soon find themselves cast out of the only country they've ever called home."
Dreamers, he said, "help customers in our retail stores. They engineer the products people love and they're building Apple's future as part of our R&D teams. They contribute to our company, our economy and our communities just as much as you and I do. Their dreams are our dreams."
Cook assured employees that "Apple will work with members of Congress from both parties to advocate for a legislative solution that provides permanent protections for all the Dreamers in our country."
Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein
Goldman Sachs ( CEO Lloyd Blankfein commented in a tweet that "immigration is a complex issue but I wouldn't deport a kid who was brought here and only knows America." )
He added, "Congress must address."
Bob Iger, Chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Co (., said on Tuesday that "the Dreamers impacted by this cruel and misguided decision make significant contributions to our economy and our country." )
He added, "I urge Congress to take immediate bipartisan action to pass legislation that will protect these innocent people."
In a tweet sent prior to Session's press conference, Michael Bloomberg said "Bloomberg is lucky to have Dreamers. They're helping power our company & economy. Business leaders want a solution -- Congress must lead."
Google ( CEO Sundar Pichai said in a tweet on Tuesday that "Dreamers are our neighbors, our friends and our co-workers. This is their home." He added, "Congress needs to act now to defend DACA." )
JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon spoke out on behalf of business lobbying group Business Roundtable, where he serves as chairman.
"America is and always has been a country of immigrants," Dimon said in a statement released by Business Roundtable. "We should do everything in our power to continue to attract the best and brightest because they make us stronger as a people and as an economy. And, when people come here to learn, work hard and give back to their communities, we should allow them to stay in the United States."
Business Roundtable's president and CEO Joshua Bolten urged Congress and President Trump to find an alternative to DACA before the six-month deadline ends. "Failure to act would have a significant negative impact on businesses that rely on employees who are here and working lawfully," he said.
Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates
In a Facebook post, Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Bill Gates wrote, "I'm very disappointed with today's decision to end DACA."
"Hundreds of thousands of young people who have been educated in the United States and have played by the rules their whole lives will be forced to live under the threat that they will be separated from their families, friends, and communities," he added. "Melinda and I have been incredibly impressed by the Dreamers we have come across in our work with Microsoft, the foundation, and other programs we have supported over the years."
Gates said he hopes "Congress will quickly pass a permanent fix to allow these young people to stay in the country without the destructive fear of deportation."
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella
"Dreamers make our country & communities stronger," said Microsoft ( CEO Satya Nadella in a tweet. "We stand for diversity and economic opportunity for everyone." )
"We are deeply disappointed by the administration's decision today to rescind protection under the program for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals," Smith said. "As we said last week, we believe this is a big step back for our entire country."
Airbnb co-founders Brian Chesky, Joe Gebbia and Nathan Blecharczyk
The Airbnb co-founders offered a broad comment in response to the DACA decision, saying "we founded Airbnb based on the idea that our lives and our world are better when we accept each other. Those aren't just economic or business values. Those are the values America has been and should be all about."
Lyft co-founders Logan Green and John Zimmer
Lyft co-founder John Zimmer tweeted a link to the open letter signed by CEOs last week with the comment "Dreamers add to our communities and economy. Ending DACA is wrong - we now must work together to ask congress to act."
Cisco ( CEO Chuck Robbins also weighed in, writing "so proud of Cisco Dreamers," on Twitter. He added, "we stand with you all - we need the US Congress to act quickly to resolve this situation." )
"Congress must act immediately to allow Dreamers to stay," Box ( CEO Aaron Levie wrote on Twitter. "This should be priority # 1 given the confusion and stress ending DACA will cause." )
Univision ( President and CEO Randy Falco said on Tuesday, "DREAMers are our students, soldiers, first responders, coworkers, neighbors, and friends." He added that at Univision, "we will continue to stand by them, including those talented DREAMers working at our company to advance our mission." )
A top official in the U.S. Chamber of Commerce said on Tuesday that "the original DACA program announced in 2012 was premised on sound public policy, and unlike DAPA, it was not challenged in court. Individuals enrolled in good faith and became ingrained in our communities and the nation's economy. To reverse course now and deport these individuals is contrary to fundamental American principles and the best interests of our country."
He added that the decision "runs contrary to the president's goal of growing the U.S. economy," and said that the Chamber asks "the administration and the Congress work together to quickly find a legislative solution before the program expires."
TechNet President and CEO Linda Moore
Linda Moore, CEO of the national bipartisan network of CEOs TechNet, said on Tuesday that "Ending DACA will be highly disruptive to the U.S. economy." She added, "Whether you agree with DACA or not, ending it without anything to replace it creates unnecessary uncertainty for our economy and for almost 800,000 young people in this country who have passed background checks, paid fees, and are contributing to our economy, pursuing their studies, or even serving in our military."
She concluded, "the President's action now makes it an urgent priority for Congress to turn its sympathy for these young people into a law that ends the uncertainty they face."

Part 2, from,Who Are The Founders For DACA? ,President Donald Trump’s decision to end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program has been criticized, by Democrats and Republicans alike, as “cruel,” “inhumane” and “unconscionable.” It is also quite likely illegal. The decision is being implemented in a way that appears to violate the Administrative Procedure Act, and the courts might well block the Trump administration’s action on those grounds.
The Administrative Procedure Act, sometimes called the “Magna Carta of administrative law,” is a 1946 statute that governs hundreds of federal agencies, including the Department of Homeland Security. It requires that agencies go through a process known as “notice and comment” before issuing, amending or repealing “substantive rules.” As part of that process, the agency must publish proposed actions in the Federal Register and then give the public at least 30 days to submit feedback. When it finalizes its proposal, the agency must respond to issues raised by the public comments and must explain why it settled upon the course of action that it chose. The explanation must show why the agency’s action is reasonable and not “arbitrary” or “capricious.”
In hundreds of cases, the federal courts have had to decide what counts as a “substantive rule” to which the notice-and-comment requirement applies. In a nutshell, a substantive rule is an agency action that alters the rights or interests of parties, changes the background regulatory regime and has a present and binding effect. Sometimes, agencies will take actions that do all of these things but are labeled as “policy statements” rather than “substantive rules.” In those cases, federal courts will block the agency from carrying through on its policy until it goes through the notice-and-comment process.
Now, this is how I found out about this blog and the lefty nutty Magna Carta, I was nosey...:)
There is area under the video, so I followed the links to this blog: https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/09/05/the-legal-flaw-w...
The I cased searched this Google "
That’s what’s likely to happen here. On Tuesday, Acting DHS Secretary Elaine Duke sent a memo to other officials in her department regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program. Since its inception in 2012, DACA has allowed more than 800,000 undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States before their 16th birthday to obtain work permits and certain other benefits. Immigrants eligible for DACA, known as Dreamers, must file an application with DHS and must seek renewal of their status every two years.
That will now change. Duke’s memo says that “[e]ffective immediately,” DHS will “reject all DACA initial requests” filed after Tuesday. It goes on to say that the department will “reject all DACA renewal requests” received after October 5 of this year. The memo has all the signs of a substantive rule. It alters the rights of Dreamers, who now cannot obtain work permits and other privileges associated with deferred action status (such as Social Security benefits). In so doing, it changes the background regulatory regime. And as the memo makes clear, it has a present and binding effect on DHS officials and on hundreds of thousands of Dreamers.
Since it announces a substantive rule, the memo is subject to the notice-and-comment requirement. But DHS has given no indication that it intends to go through the notice-and-comment process here. Instead, Acting Secretary Duke has moved ahead without giving the public 30 days to submit feedback. That’s a violation of the Administrative Procedure Act, and it would give a federal court a basis for blocking the department from carrying through on its new substantive rule.
There is, to be sure, a wrinkle in this argument. The wrinkle is that then- DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano did not go through notice and comment when she announced the DACA policy by memorandum back in 2012. The Trump administration will likely say that if DACA didn’t need to go through notice and comment initially, then DHS shouldn’t have to go through notice and comment now when it rescinds DACA. And if DACA did need to go through notice and comment initially, then DACA itself is procedurally invalid and should be set aside on those grounds.
