New York: Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo made a statement in support of young citizens who arrived in the US with their parents-migrants. They can be deported as a result of the cancellation by the administration of President Donald Trump of the DACA program. Cuomo said in social networks about the readiness to challenge such a decision in court.
"New York will not demonize diversity. We will not stand aside, while 42,000 New Yorkers will be deported. If President Trump cancels DACA, we will sue, "Andrew Cuomo wrote on Twitter.
It is expected that Donald Trump will soon sign an executive order on the elimination of the state program "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals" (DACA), created under the Obama administration in 2012. As a "compromise", the Trump administration proposes to postpone the cancellation for six months so that Congress can develop a replacement plan for this program during this time.
The DACA allows law-abiding young people who illegally come to the country as children to obtain temporary rights to live, work and study in the US.
