Hold the Guacamole! Gallego To Hold DACA Immigration Summit

President-elect Donald Trump ran on a pro-legal immigration platform that included building a wall, combatting border crime, and deporting illegal immigrants.

The hawkish Trump seems to have softened his stance on immigration, saying that he was willing to “work something out” for illegal immigrants who crossed over illegally when they were children and are now paying taxes because of President Obama’s 2012 executive work permit order.

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program allows children who came to this country illegally to work and study in the U.S. without the fear of getting deported back to their country of origin.

Does Texas have a constitutional right to defy Supreme Court on protecting its border?

“We’re going to work something out that’s going to make people happy and proud…They got brought here at a very young age, they’ve worked here, they’ve gone to school here. Some were good students. Some have wonderful jobs. And they’re in never-never land because they don’t know what’s going to happen.”-President-elect Donald Trump, Time Magazine

Some of Trump’s strongest and most vocal detractors like Arizona Congressman Ruben Gallego (D), who are fearful that Trump will scrub Obama’s executive order, have the taken a more proactive approach to dealing with the issue of DACA.

Gallego will be holding his “DACA Summit” at Phoenix College to address the future of the program, and to try to answer any and all questions that constituents may have.
