Trump Ends Dreamers Program But Gives Congress A Window To Save It

The Trump administration on Tuesday formally announced the end of DACA, a program that had protected nearly 800,000 young undocumented immigrants brought to the US as children from deportation.

 

 

The Department of Homeland Security will stop processing any new applications for the program as of Tuesday and has formally rescinded the Obama administration policy, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

 

 

“I am here today to announce that the program known as DACA that was effectuated under the Obama administration is being rescinded,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Tuesday at a Justice Department news conference.

 

 

But the administration also announced a plan to continue renewing permits for anyone whose status expires in the next six months, giving Congress time to act before any currently protected individuals lose their ability to work, study and live without fear in the US.
