'Dreamers' face an uncertain future in the current administration

People who were brought to this country as young children by parents who immigrated illegally may have breathed a tentative sigh of relief this month amid reports that President Trump was not going to move at this time to deport "Dreamers" and that they could continue to get work permits.

Dreamers is the name widely used for those who qualified to remain in the country under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. That program was implemented by President Obama.

Despite statements during his campaign that Dreamers might be deported if he became president, he seems to have softened on the issue, saying that they could "rest easy."

Members of Trump's own administration, however, are making statements that are contradictory to what their boss is saying. Attorney General Jeff Sessions responded to reports of Dreamers being able to stay by saying, "Well, we'll see. I believe that everyone who enters the country illegally is subject to being deported." The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) stated, "The future of the DACA program continues to be under review with the administration."

Further, White House officials have walked back reports that Dreamers are safe, saying that the president hasn't decided yet about the future of DACA. Many of his staunchest supporters applauded his campaign promises to deport anyone who didn't arrive in the country legally.

The only thing Dreamers can be certain of is that nothing is certain when it comes to their future here in the U.S. Those who have questions or concerns about their ability to remain in the country to study, work and/or start a family should contact an experienced Georgia immigration attorney.
