The decision has evoked widespread criticism with former President Barack Obama calling it calling it "wrong", "self-defeating" and "cruel". And the threats facing immigrant communities will depend on the severity of enforcement actions against current DACA recipients, and, ultimately, where people live, as some states have actually expanded on DACA protections with measures like "sanctuary cities", while others have actively cooperated with ICE agents.

Yet to Sessions, it was just a matter of respect for the rule of law.

Therefore nation must set and enforce a limit on how many immigrants we accept each year, and that means not all can be accepted. Obama ordered the creation of the program after attempts by Congress to pass significant immigration legislation, including the 2010 DREAM Act, failed. Following Sessions' statement, Trump urged the legislative branch to prepare accordingly.

In an email sent to the University community, University President Teresa Sullivan expressed criticism toward DACA's discontinuation.

Manchin's office did not respond to a request for comment Tuesday on Trump's decision to end DACA.

The Penn State College Democrats tweeted a statement Tuesday evening in response to the Trump administration's decision.

"One thing that is talked about here a lot ..."

It has since maintained a torrid pace in weapons tests, including its first two intercontinental ballistic missiles test in July. It says its weapons programmes are needed to counter US aggression. "We need to be smart", Hill said.

"I have a love for these people and hopefully now Congress will be able to help them and do it properly", Trump told reporters.

The College Republicans do not have a stance on the issue, because the organization seeks to focus on policy areas where the Republican Party is in agreement, third-year College student and College Republicans Chairman Adam Kimelman said. Tens of thousands of jobs may soon be endangered, but the youth say they will keep working, getting an education and organizing to protect the rights of all immigrants nationwide.

"It's about who we are as a people - and who we want to be", said Obama, who left the White House in January of this year after first being elected president in 2009. Trump's decision to take a harder line on young immigrants unless Congress intervenes threatens to emphasize deep divisions among Republicans who have long struggled with the issue.

So make no mistake, the promise that DACA recipients won't have to fear immediate deportation is entirely unreliable. Many were brought to the U.S. as children.

"The human and economic toll of rescinding DACA will be far reaching".

Sanders' blunt warning to lawmakers skeptical they can come up with a plan: "If they can't, then they should get out of the way and let somebody else take their job that can actually get something done". "It will not be good if DACA is fully rescinded and there is no legislation to transition out of it, and that's where we'll be focusing". Their absence is going to cost over $700 million in lost GDP in Virginia alone, Sharuk said. The fear of going back to a country I don't know. "There's an inherent cruelty to the fact that our government fought to protect them five short years ago, and today, our government is setting foreign policy to make them vulnerable to deportation". This is misleading. DACA grants work authorisation to almost 800,000 individuals who are not legally authorised to work.

According to the DACA, those who are now enrolled will be able to continue working until their permits expire, while those whose permits expire by March 5, 2018, will be permitted to apply for two-year renewal as long as they do so by October 5.

"We will continue to advocate with members of Pennsylvania's congressional delegation on behalf of our students and all who may be potentially affected by this decision", Barron said.
