    An artificial intelligence startup in New York’s Flatiron district was recently looking to expand, adding new engineers who happened to know a niche computer language. The people it hired hail from Morocco, Belarus, France, Georgia and Canada. But they are not working in Manhattan. They are in Montreal, where immigration policies make it possible to get work permits within two weeks, and the Canadian tech industry is aggressively trying to woo foreign companies.

    In his State of the Union speech Tuesday night, President Donald Trump said that immigrants in the country illegally “have caused the loss of many innocent lives,” and he paid special attention to the gang known as MS-13. Many of its members, he said, “took advantage of glaring loopholes in our laws to enter the country as unaccompanied alien minors” and then ended up murdering American citizens.

    In Chicago, in the backyard of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services agency, there were at least 21 DACA recipients whose renewals, sent well before the deadline, arrived late, according to Rep. Luis V. Gutiérrez, D-Ill. An applicant sent a renewal Sept. 13 and it arrived Oct. 6. Another sent the paperwork Sept. 21, and it was received Oct. 9. “Because somebody else did not do their job correctly, we are taking innocent young immigrants and making them deportable,” said Gutiérrez in a statement. “That is unacceptable.”

    While DACA may be fleeting, the stamp is forever, and for some, it might offer a small future benefit as well: If Guzman were ever to apply for a green card after marrying a U.S. citizen, she would not have to return to Mexico and risk being turned down, as most immigrants who entered the country illegally currently must do. Adjusting her legal status would be far easier.
