The NAE also is expected to release an interactive map of immigration stories from all 435 congressional districts and to coordinate events around the country, including statements issued in Pennsylvania supporting DACA, according to the NAE press release. Worse yet, only 34 percent of Democrats like the idea (support among independents, at 20 percent, is identical to the number of Republicans going along with it).

He does not want to see children who were brought here before the age of legal accountability, and who have otherwise complied with the law, removed from the United States. Those in the program were brought to the USA illegally as children and have grown up and attended school here.

Congress has the authority - and the duty - to provide changes to the immigration laws. "On the left, saying it's an all-or-nothing proposition".

The Armenian Council of America is committed to promoting the civic and civil rights interests of the Armenian American community.

Indeed, five Senate Democrats and 25 House Democrats have publicly vowed not to vote for any spending legislation - even a short-term stopgap measure like the one Republicans are trying to engineer before the last stopgap bill expires this Friday - that does not include protection for Dreamers.

Some Democrats and one Republican, Rep.

"We must pass legislation that protects DACA recipients from deportation and gives them the opportunity to apply for a more secured status in our country as soon as possible". They are looking at shutting down. "My backup, if all else fails, is I'd file a discharge petition on the Bridge Act". Representative Steve Cohen is among a growing list of Democrats threatening to withhold their vote on the year-end spending bill if it does not include the Dream Act. They want a path to citizenship, and they say they're exhausted of waiting.

"We are compelled to act immediately because many DACA recipients are about to lose or have already lost their permits in the wake of the program's rescission", the House Republicans said in their letter.

Congress is being asked to negotiate a legal remedy for DACA-eligible recipients, who, the NAE argue, contribute billions of dollars nationally.

Unless Congress enacts legislation, immigrants will begin losing their DACA protection en masse starting in March, and would have to leave the US.

Speaker Paul RyanPaul Davis RyanRight scrambles GOP budget strategy Mark Mellman: History's judgment Conservative lawmakers met to discuss GOP chairman's ouster MORE (R-Wis.) has insisted that March 5 is the real deadline for action, and that Congress now has its hands full with tax reform and government spending.

Also Tuesday, a group of 15, including Dreamers and their supporters, rallied at the Wallace F. Bennett Federal Building in Salt Lake City to urge U.S. Sen. "We can do this if we quit grandstanding and quit engaging in these sorts of stunts, and I hope we will." .

"Since I'm someone who's willing to stand up to leadership and the president on these issues, I'm not in their confidence on this stuff", he said.
