Mexico announces programs to help ‘Dreamers’ returned to Mexico
The Mexican government announced the immediate implementation of six programs to assist ‘Dreamers’ who return to Mexico, either voluntarily or through deportation.
- Immediate enrollment into Mexico’s healthcare system
- Education credentials accepted from US Studies
- Streamlined process for school enrollment
- Scholarship programs for National and International Universities
- Youth credit program with low interest rates for entrepreneurs
- Job training and work exchange programs
U.S. President Donald Trump announced today, through the Attorney General, the gradual cancellation of the Deferred Action for Children’s Arrivals (DACA). The program extends protection for the nearly 800,000 young people who were brought into the country illegally at a young age by their parents. The program is scheduled to end in six months, giving the U.S. Congress time to legislate new immigration laws to keep ‘Dreamers’ in the country.
With the announcement, President Trump fulfilled one of his campaign promises, eliminating the most significant action on the immigration front ordered by President Barack Obama through executive order in 2012.
Sessions explained that the government’s decision rested on its analysis of the legality of the program and the possibility that it would be invalidated by federal courts in response to the imminent extension of a lawsuit in ten Republican states.
