Trump puts an end to DACA

On Sunday afternoon after meeting with Senior White House aides, President Trump decided to put an end to the program that grants work permits to undocumented immigrants who arrived in the country as children.

For several months Trump delayed the decision of ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, better known as DACA.

Trump is expected to announce his decision on Tuesday, in the mean time the White House informed the House Speaker, Paul Ryan about the issue Sunday Morning.

During a radio interview on Friday, Ryan said that he didn’t think the president should terminate DACA and that the Congress should take action on the issue.

Putting an end to DACA is likely to be one of the most argumentative presidential decrees in Trump’s early administration. If passed by Congress, the fate and future of approximately 800,000 “Dreamers” benefiting from DACA will be affected.
