My dad explained every detail of it and yet I left that conversation with a thought stuck in my head. Why would they do that?Why would they threaten this way?

This program was introduced by President Barack Obama in 2012 and was aimed at protecting people who were brought to the United States under the age of 16 from deportation. The program required applicants to be in or have graduated high school, to have no criminal record, and other requirements. It provided applicants who were eligible with a two-year, renewable permit, and although it granted work authorization, it did not grant legal status.

Although the decision on the Chae Chan Pang v. United States case was decided over 150 years ago, it still bares much relevance and similarity to President Donald Trump’s executive order, especially in the separation of powers. The Chae Chan Ping case came before the Supreme Court on the basis of an appeal of the 1888 Chinese labor restriction bill.

Much to the surprise of the appellant, when arriving back in San Francisco, after visiting his homeland of China for 8 years, he was detained and told his entry into the country was unlawful.
