Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is one of Barrack Obama’s renowned policies founded in June 2012. DACA allows illegal underage immigrants who came to the USA to receive a renewable 2-year period of deferred action of being deported and a chance to obtain a valid work permit. However, Trump, in his run up to the elections, moved his supporters by saying he would scrap DACA. The President had promised to have a decision by the weekend but is postponed due to the hurricane to run rampant in eastern Texas.

Top White House officials, including Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee, said that there was no concrete decision made on the future of DACA.

We Love the Dreamers

President Trump has not been answering questions from the media directly on the DACA issue except for one line, “We love the dreamers.” Huckabee took the heat regarding the president’s decision on DACA. During the press briefing, she said the earliest the world will know of Trump’s decision is in the second week of October.

According to Huckabee, President Trump’s priorities regarding immigration are to create a system that encourages legal immigration that will also benefit the American economy and its residents. All expectations look like Trump will repeal DACA. However, there might be hope for the dreamers after sections of the Republican Party including House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, religious and business leaders are urging the president to reconsider his stand. The young immigrants have compelling stories of their time growing up in the US, and they have been the source of widespread bipartisan support.
