The Child Will Not Share The Guilt of The Parent….
Dear Friends & Neighbors,
(Please click on red links & note magenta)
Have you been hearing about DACA and the upcoming DACA Decision in the news and wonder what it is all about?
DACA ( Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) is an American immigration policy founded by the Obama administration in June of 2012, announced with a speech in the Rose Garden of the White House on June 15, 2012 (a date chosen as the 30th anniversary of Plyler v. Doe, a Supreme Court decision barring public schools from charging illegal immigrant children tuition). DACA allows certain illegal immigrants who entered U.S. as minors (aka Dreamers) to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and eligibility for a work permit. The policy was created after acknowledgment that these illegal students had been largely raised in the United States, and was seen as a way to remove immigration enforcement attention from “low priority” individuals with good behavior. The illegal immigrant student population was rapidly increasing; approximately 65,000 illegal immigrant students graduate from U.S. high schools on a yearly basis.
From the start, the Pew Research Center estimated that up to 1.7 million people might be eligible. As of June 2016, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) had received 844,931 initial applications for DACA status, of which 741,546 (88%) were approved, 60,269 (7%) were denied, and 43,121 (5%) were pending. Over half of those accepted reside in California and Texas.
On June 16, 2017, the United States Department of Homeland Security announced that it would rescind the executive order by the Barack Obama administration that expanded the DACA program, though the DACA program’s overall existence would continue to be reviewed.
President Trump will announce his decision on DACA either Sunday or next Monday.
To those conservatives who may have been resistant to new comers, I simply want to add:
- The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of th son. (King James Bible Version of Ezekiel 18:20)
- The child will not share the guilt of the parent, nor will the parent share the guilt of the child. (New International Version of Ezekiel 18:20)
