president of the UNITED states, Donald Trump, will in the coming weeks to sign a presidential decree on 'dreamers' - a frequently used epithet for migrants staying illegally in the UNITED states and came to the country as children.
this Decree shall make a so-called 'path to citizenship' for the group.
It tells the president in an interview Friday with the Spanish-language tv channel Telemundo.
In mid-June went to the UNITED states supreme court against the president's efforts to end the so-called Daca program.
This was created under former president Barack Obama. The goal was to protect the group of 'dreamers'.
- I am going to sign a large presidential decree, and I am going to make Daca a part of it, say, president Trump to the tv channel.
- We are going to make a path to citizenship.
It is not clear, what the president considers a ”path to citizenship”, and how many it will cover.
Daca stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals' (deferred action for the arrival of children, red.).
In 2017 took the Trump legal steps to cancel Daca. But it was slowed down by lower courts and by the supreme court in last month. That is why Daca is still in force.
Højesteretsdommen, however, has not stopped Trump in again to try to put an end to the scheme.
But several estimate that it could be difficult for him to reach to win a legal battle on a new system before the presidential elections 3. november.
Trumps comments to Telemundo first immediately to harsh criticism from his republican generals senator Ted Cruz.
- the President has under the constitution no power to create a 'path to citizenship' through a decree, writes Cruz on Twitter.
It will be 'a big mistake if he illegally tries to cancel the penalty' for this group, continues the senator.
The White House has subsequently issued a notice that the decree will not grant amnesty to the group.
About 660.000 persons who are the subject of the Daca scheme.
