Rock Hill prayer vigil Thursday for DACA immigrant children 'Dreamers'

A prayer vigil for immigrant children who came to the country illegally but have status protections under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program set to expire in March is set for 7 p.m. Thursday at Fountain Park in downtown Rock Hill.

President Trump reversed the order, calling it unconstitutional, but he also gave Congress six months to pass legislation which would constitutionally accomplish the same result, saying he would sign it if they did so.

Hatch was an original sponsor of the Dream Act in 2001, which did not pass but would have allowed undocumented students to pursue an education. Ending DACA would cost the state nearly $357.1 million in annual GDP losses, would remove an estimated 685,000 workers from the USA economy and would result in the loss of $460.3 billion in GDP nationwide over the next 10 years, according to the Interfaith Worker Justice fact sheet.

"I was a year old", Randy Huerta said. Collins said she expects that a vote will be held in the Senate.

"Thousands of DACA recipients live and work in my district, contributing to their community daily", Love said in a prepared statement.

"Listen to the majority of Americans, because this country, the only country I have ever known, is great and a long term solution for us will only make her greater". "We care for our families and that's the foundation of what this country is all about".
