Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly said Wednesday that his agents are not actively trying to deport illegal immigrant Dreamers, but pleaded with Congress to pass a bill granting them a more permanent legal status, saying only lawmakers can solve the problem. Mr. Kelly declined to take a position on whether the 2012 amnesty President Obama created for Dreamers is legal, but said the program, known in government circles as DACA or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is still in effect. He said illegals who have been properly approved for DACA will be safe from deportation, but said those who havent applied, and some who were approved despite having criminal records that should make them ineligible, will be deported. One of those Dreamers, Jessica Colotl, will be in federal court Thursday asking a judge to reinstate her DACA status after it was revoked earlier this year. Her case could determine whether DACA is a discretionary grant that can be revoked, as the Obama and Trump administrations have argued, or whether its a right enforceable by the courts. When my DACA status was taken away from me, it basically took my life away, Ms. Colotl said on a conference call with reporters Wednesday. It was an arbitrary decision. I had been granted DACA before and nothing about my circumstances had changed.

BS we don’t reward the children of bank robbers with the stolen cash. Why should we reward the children brought here by their parents. Once they turn 21 they can apply to have their parents and other relatives become citizens as well. That is a back door amnesty and it will continue with others pulling the same stunts. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO Amnesty!
Is there any hope that things will change?
Big mistake. And, no, you can’t foist it off on Congress.
Fire this guy today!
Confused, is this person a ‘holdover’? The President has been very clear about this issue.
My guess is that we will hear about a new DHS appointee and the media will sweep this statement under the rug. Instead they will tell us that Trump is replacing him to increase surveillance domestically.
Because that’s how the media do. Screenshot this article, because it’ll disappear down the hole in 2 weeks.
What problem does that solve?
Its much easier to deport them now if they act up than if they get Green cards.
Deport the “Dumpers.”
How fast can he be fired?
Not a holdover.
Fire him. He’s actively NOT forcing the law and though he won’t say it - admits it when he says the law needs to be changed to make them legal.
Fire him immediately!
Yet another loser to fire. Sheesh! They aren’t “dreamers”...they are nightmares.
Wonder if Kelly is being influenced by the current Marxist Pope? They need to get all of these illegals OUT of here!. Allow the “dreamers” and their PARENTS wind up staying!
A LOT of these people want to the Southwest to secede from the US and go back to Mexico. A lot of them have no respect for our laws, languages or customs.
SEND THEM BACK. If you want to come here, GET IN LINE!
Trump can end DACA without Congress
These people think they are more important than the people of the United States.
sounds like Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly needs to go bye bye.
Doing that will make sure the demise of the Republican party.
