President Donald Trump made a splash this week with his decision to rescind DACA – the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals program.
DACA was a temporary measure, introduced by former President Barack Obama in 2012 to provide short-term protection for illegal immigrants who came to the country before their sixteenth birthday.
It’s Congress’s job, not the President’s, to pass legislation. But when the Democrat’s failed to pass an amnesty bill, Obama stepped in with a fix that many experts said was unconstitutional.
This week, Trump announced that Congress had six months to turn DACA into a permanent law.
