Writing a current event

Current Event Assignment 1

1. DeMarche, Edmund. “Republicans divided on Trump’s expected DACA announcement.”

foxnews.com. Web. 5 Sept. 2017.



2. President Trump decided to repel a program called Deferred Action for Childhood

Arrival also known as DACA. “Under DACA – which was created through executive action

by President Obama in 2012 – people who come to the U.S. illegally when they are

children are protected from deportation and granted work permits.” (DeMarche) The

main issue that concerns everyone is that those children, many of who are now young

adults, will be deported back to where they were born. But many of them only see

America as their home. President Trump has given Congress six months to find a

solution for the immigrants that were connected to DACA, roughly 800,000 immigrants.

3. The article is connected to the class concept of Separation of Power, the power that is

divided into three branches: executive branch, legislature branch, and the judicial

branch. The executive branch, also known as the President of the United States, is

ending a program that was created by executive order. The President has stated that

the legislative branch, Congress, must find a way to pass a federal law that reestablishes

the same concept as DACA. The judicial branch has a role in this too, although they are

not mentioned in the article. The judicial branch is responsible for checking that the

actions of the executive and legislative branches are constitutional.

4. The demographics of the U.S. will be affected if Congress does not find a solution to the

ending of DACA. According to the textbook, the Hispanic population is the second

largest ethnic group in the U.S. By ending this program, 800,000 immigrants will be

deported back to the hometown where their parents were from. From their viewpoint,

they do not want to be separated from their families, jobs, and school. For many, the

U.S. is all that they have known. Another viewpoint might be immigrants who have

traveled to the U.S. through legal immigration. They might not see the need for a special

program for undocumented people.

5. In this article, I wish to challenge President Donald Trump in his decision of ending the

DACA program that former President Barack Obama created. Does our President know

what he is doing other than getting rid of people he dislikes? In the article, Roy Beck

stated, “It is time for President Trump to stop breaking one of the clearest campaign

promises he made.” (DeMarche) Because Donald Trump was determined to stop

immigration from terror-prone places, but did not say anything about immigrants that

has been more helpful than harmful to the United States.
