  • DACA supporters rally in front of the White House

They added that they are also accustomed to being persistent, and they pledge to do the same in this situation.

An undocumented immigrant from NY rushed to federal court Tuesday to challenge the termination of DACA - a program protecting young undocumented immigrants brought to the USA as children from deportation - hours after the Trump administration announced its termination. People with permits set to expire between now and March 5, 2018, will be able to re-apply as long as their applications are submitted by October 5.

Officials of the Department of Homeland Security, which includes immigration and border-patrol officers, told reporters Tuesday they would not actively pursue the people who had been protected by DACA, at least for the next six months.

Dealing a huge blow to hundreds of thousands of immigrants, the Trump administration announced it's phasing out the DACA program and leaving it to Congress to come up with a plan.

Currently, 800,000 people benefit from DACA, which the Obama administration enacted in 2012 in the absence of comprehensive immigration reform. Already lawmakers including 2013 immigration reform veteran Republican Sens.

A group that supports the program in Arizona is using a community summit this weekend to hold a session on DACA and reapplying.

In New York, Karen Marin, 26 said she was in a physics class at Bronx Community College when she heard the news of the president's decision.

Irma is 'extremely dangerous' Category Five hurricane - NHC
The policy only applies to vacations booked directly through Disney, and it does not apply to dining or special events. It is said that hurricanes like Irma start off as thunderstorms and gather wind strength at an enormous speed.

The decision put some of Trump's most ardent political supporters in an uncomfortable spot. "Making sure that people who are able to renew will have the support to do so", Guerrero said. "I didn't think it was going to happen".

Obama, in a Facebook post, said the reversal was wrong, self-defeating and cruel.

When teasing the story, CBS Anchor Anthony Mason described the situation as "shattered dreams", playing off the term "Dreamers" the phrase used to describe those who receive DACA protections. But it will hardly insulate him from mass protests and legal challenges from state officials, as advocates press for sanctuary for all migrants nationwide.

John Willis, an Ontario, California resident and handyman demonstrated in Los Angeles and carried a sign that read, "American lives matter".

"This does not mean they are bad people or the nation disrespect or demeans them in any way, it means we are properly enforcing our laws as Congress has passed them", said Jeff Sessions, U.S. Attorney General. "I'm not a hater, I don't wish these kids to be sent back to Mexico or anything like that but I don't believe we should have two sets of laws". They are among the safest immigrants we have.

Karen Marin, of NY, said that while she was disappointed that DACA is ending, she has survived without it before and can again now.

"Studies show that taking away this program would hurt the United States' economy, leading to a loss of $460.3 billion from the national Gross Domestic Product over the next decade", Heitkamp wrote.

Additional sanctions on North Korea would be "useless and ineffective": Putin
Russian Federation and the United States have been feuding over the closing of embassies in the two countries. Putin said he reserved the right to remove more American staff from Russian Federation .

According to surveys of DACA recipients from 2014, "almost two-thirds reported getting a higher-paying job. Something to help us continue moving forward as citizens of the United States because that's what we are", Marin said.

Sessions said the program allowed "aliens" to take jobs from Americans.

Mendez's parents brought her to the USA from Mexico when she was 1, and she didn't realize she was in the country illegally for years.

When Trump announced Tuesday that he was revoking DACA protections, Tester was one of the Democratic senators who criticized the decision.

"I'm mad and I'm sad, but I'm not going to let that get to me", she said through tears.

"DACA recipients are talented, hard working, and full of potential and promise", Wester said.
