Trump pledges to resubmit filing on DACA after Supreme Court blocked efforts to end protections for Dreamers

Nationwide, victory rallies were held by young undocumented immigrants, known as Dreamers.

Last Thursday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Trump administration cannot push through with its plan to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA — which has spared them from deportation in the last eight years.

Despite the big blow to his hardline immigration policies, President Donald Trump remains persistent in depriving them of their American dreams.

Trump took to Twitter on Friday, saying the Supreme Court asked his administration to resubmit filing on DACA — insisting “nothing was lost or won,” and describing the ruling as a punt, much like in a football game.

He said his administration will be submitting enhanced papers shortly in order to fulfill the Supreme Court’s ruling and request.

Kyle Reyes, a Filipino DACA recipient from Nevada said that while they can breathe a huge sigh of relief for now, a comprehensive immigration reform bill needs to be passed in Congress.

“It’s a big victory for the Dreamers. The stress has been lifted off from their shoulders but we still need to fight for an actual permanent fix to the immigrants to the dreamer.”

Reyes came to America with his parents in 2003. Unfortunately, his parents lost their jobs and work visas — and had to voluntarily return to the Philippines in 2013.

Reyes, who was 20 at that time, decided to stay in the U.S., and was able to legally stay and work in the U.S. through DACA.

With continued threats against DACA, Reyes said the solution is for people to make the right decision in the 2020 presidential election.

“People go out there and support the dreamers for the right candidate and support the program itself so we can have a permanent solution not just for dreamers but for all the immigrants.”

House Democratic leaders are now calling on Senate Republicans to take up the American Dream and Promise act — already passed in the House — which would actually provide a path to citizenship to hundreds of thousands of immigrants who have always considered America home.

    DACA will be resolved after the election if, GOP controls the HOUSE and the Senate, there is more HOPE for the Dreamers. If the House is DEMS and Senate is GOP, vice versa, nothing will happen, IMPEACHMENT will be back, all kinds of delaying tactics to stop the Presidency to move forward. If both DEMS control the House and the SENATE, they killed DACA on Obamas 8 years and again killed DACA for the 12th times during the TRUMP era. DACA recipients should FOCUS on DACA Legislation BILL only, going to comprehensive Immigration reform is more complicated to approve. DACA’s future depends on the future of the US economy if manufacturing will come back, low unemployment rate, more chances for the DACA. Remember, 700K are DACA, the Black Community has no chance to compete with the DACA. TRUMP mistake on the DACA bill when he asked the Congress 1.6 Million for Congressional Bill, (700K-DACA, DAPA+Illegal Alien), naturally DEMS will kill it. That resulted in TRUMP to give it to the SC for the decision, but SC gave it back and let Congress to come out with a legislation and solutions.
