Under the terms, minors who failed to win refugee status could come on a two-year, renewable parole if they had a parent already legally present in the country.
I didn't even know about this Program. It started in 2014 responding to a spike in this kind of refugee/immigrant. This program is about 2 years younger than DACA.
If they had a parent who was an American citizen when their child was born the child would typically automatically have a right to American citizenship, so I assume having a parent legally present in the country means has been granted refugee status, or has a green card, or residency status, or something. (What if the parent immigrated, legally, before their child, but their child came before paper was, if it could be, drawn up for the kid?).
So is the U.S. are going to possibly separate these kids from their parents?
Looks like the ending of this program may directly affect approximate 4,100 people.
I heard Trump may be feeling pressure over DACA from Republicans and others, and they've threaten to take DACA to court, which the Trump administration would have to defend if they keep the program.
