“Due to the President’s action to allow the Dreamers to stay in this country and work after inaction by Congress has shifted the great to a “done deal” mode so I hope that will push Congress to be able to come together for the Dreamer’s cause”

400,562 young people or 72% of the estimated total eligible for DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), have applied and been approved for deferred action since it was authorized last August by President Obama, according to the following article from August 12 of 2013.

In response to overwhelming public support for aiding the Dreamers, 2 House Republicans who voted against the DREAM Act in 2010 are working on a DREAM Act-like bill, called the Kids Act that would legalize, not just defer the deportation of Dreamers.

“Dreamers are those young adults who were brought to the United States as small children, mostly without their fault or choice,” said immigration attorney Karen Weinstock, managing attorney of the Atlanta Immigration law firm Siskind Susser.

“The DREAM Act that was previously proposed fell in the House in 2010 mainly because of Republican opposition. However the situation may be changing because there is overwhelming public support for aiding the Dreamers,” explained Atlanta Immigration lawyer Karen Weinstock.

“The issue now is to make the case to legalize their parents which is a much tougher case to make. There is still a long road ahead for comprehensive immigration reform but as the case for Dreamers show, civic action and public support can play a substantial role in influencing policy makers,” explained the immigration attorney.

“There is a danger in the House’s piecemeal approach to immigration reform as it could be possible that the GOP concession to legalizing Dreamers will come at a cost of killing attempts at comprehensive immigration reform for the remaining 11 million undocumented immigrants,” stated the immigration lawyer in Atlanta. “This is why this piecemeal strategy is problematic for people who support immigration reform,” explained the immigration attorney in closing.

“We need comprehensive immigration reform and to strike while the iron is hot as there is great public support for it now,” concluded the immigration attorney and head of the Atlanta Immigration law firm Karen Weinstock.
