Homes of many such illegal immigrants were recently raided by US Immigration and Customs officers and their parents are now held in detention centers, facing legal hurdles or are forced to wear tracking devices around their ankles.

HYSTERIA OVER U.S. Attorney General Jeff Session's announcement Tuesday that the Trump administration is rescinding the Obama administration's controversial 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program has reached fever pitch. One week later, he promoted his "great heart for these folks", yet proceeded to announce that "long term it's going to be the right solution" as he tweeted at Congress, urging them to pass a replacement program for DACA in the next six months.

For those who care about defending a "right to life", here are 800,000 lives ready for your defense. My grandson had such an experience when he spent time in Honduras with his dad who worked there one summer. Marco Rubio, R-Florida, who was already strongly considering a 2016 run for president.
There are nearly 800,000 DACA recipients in the United States and an estimated 8,000 in Tennessee.
"I understand why conservatives are upset".
The New York Democrat said in a Senate floor speech that aid for those immigrants "would likely pass without much fuss".
That would buy time for DACA recipients facing the expiration of deferrals and work permits.
