Louisiana would be hard hit if DACA comes to an end

Although the expiration date for the program is March 6, Dreamers had to submit their applications before October 5, to allow enough time for processing the permit, said Alvarez Valle.

"The concern is that we're fast approaching an election year and the pressure will only increase on Republicans in particular to curry their base and to not make any compromises", Hernandez said.

Fact based analysis is critical to every policy debate, and it is a fact that now 86 percent of all Americans and 76 percent of Republicans support protecting Dreamers.

"America has to have a heart", Nelsen added.

Threatening my safety and almost 800,000 Dreamers like myself in exchange for a "deal" that includes a 50 percent reduction to annual immigration levels, a dramatic ramp up of enforcement amounting to a deportation force that will devastate our economy, separate families and swoop up our coworkers and neighbors who enrich our lives, is not compassionate nor reasonable.

"In general, I know the sentiments that people have, and it hurts because this is all I've known", said Lopez, a Nobody Leaves Mid-Hudson volunteer.

Diaz fears deportation if Congress fails to come up with a solution for DACA before a March deadline.

"We can not eliminate people who have the will to work, want the jobs, want to grow our economy, want to add to society in many ways, not just as workers but in associations", Sine said.

"They want to have illegal immigrants pouring into our country, bringing with them crime, tremendous amounts of crime", Trump said.

"What do we want?" He criticized Democrats for holding the government hostage over DACA. Both Presidents Obama and Trump have said so. "The Democrats are really looking for something that is very risky to our country". "Clean DREAM Act or no omnibus spending bill, signed your constituent".

"Certainly, we want to find a bipartisan solution and we definitely do not want to get into a debate about shutting the government down", Denham said. "But I don't think we ought to just do that".

Students are also putting pressure on Republican Rep. Tom McClintock, who represents California's sprawling 4th Congressional District, located in the foothills and mountains east of Sacramento.
