Will Congress and the President support the bipartisan DREAM Act introduced by Sen. Graham and Sen. Durbin?

For the last few weeks, eleven U.S. states have teamed up to pressure the president into ending the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. The states’ argument against the continuation of DACA relies solely upon the belief that the 2012 executive order is unconstitutional. However, there has yet to be a U.S. court to declare this argument true.

At this moment, actions President Donald Trump would take to end DACA are unpredictable. While he was very expressive about his opposition towards the program during his pre-election campaign, he has recently shown signs of “softening” due to the deeper understanding of who the DACA program protects and how it contributes to the American economy. On Friday, President stated that: “We love the DREAMERs. We love everybody…. We think the DREAMERs are terrific.”

With Democrats being well-known to be more sympathizing towards immigrants and immigration reform, I truly believe that if we, as a country, would like to take a step forward in improving our immigration policies, it should be Republicans leading the movement.

Afterall, Republicans have been the only reason DREAM Act has not passed in sixteen years and DACA had to be implemented as an executive order.

If Republicans’ argument about the constitutionality of DACA is honest without any underlying agenda to deport young individuals, then the country should expect, even demand Congress Republicans to cooperate and pass the latest DREAM Act introduced by Senators Lindsey Graham and Dick Durbin.

What do you think? Will Congress and the President support the bipartisan DREAM Act introduced by Sen. Graham and Sen. Durbin?
