For months speculation surrounding President Trump’s on-again, off-again signaling on Obama’s DACA program has kept supporters and critics alike guessing.
But insiders are now saying Trump will kill the infamous program as early as today.
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals was the brainchild of the Obama administration as the executive order was used by the White House as an end-round to the Republican Congress which refused to pass any sort of amnesty bill.
Though the program was effectively stalled by federal courts citing conflict between the White House and state authorities, the fate of the program was unknown until now.
Trump has been under pressure to keep his campaign promises for hardline immigration policies, so this decision comes as no surprise.
Neither will the left’s foaming at the mouth when it becomes official. Look for La Raza and Antifa types to start rioting in California and elsewhere.
Here’s more from Fox News…
President Trump, as early as Friday, is expected to announce plans to end the Obama administration program that gave a deportation reprieve to hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants, a senior administration official told Fox News.
Trump promised to terminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, during the presidential campaign — but since taking office had left the door open to preserving parts of it.
According to the official, Trump is expected to announce the program’s end but will allow so-called “dreamers” currently in the program to stay in the U.S. until their work permits expire – which, for some, could be as long as two years.
The program, also known as DACA, was formed through executive order by then-President Barack Obama in 2012 and allows for certain people who came to the U.S. illegally as minors to be protected from immediate deportation.
Recipients are able to request “consideration of deferred action” for a period of two years which is subject to renewal.
