DACA phased out; Trump asks Congress “to do their job”

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced today plans to end the DACA program (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). Applications for DACA will no longer be accepted.
For current recipients the program will be phased out. The government will only continue to renew existing permits during the next six months.

DACA was created in 2012 through an executive order by Prez Obama. The program shields from deportation about 800,000 undocumented immigrants who were brought to the US as children. It did not provide legal status to the so-called Dreamers but allowed them to have work permits.

Prez Trump urged members of Congress to come together and reform the immigration legislation. Preferably before the six months are over. “Congress, get ready to do your job – DACA!” he tweeted.

DAPA gone, DACA stays (for now)

Thursday, June 16 – DHS Secretary John F. Kelly announced today that he is rescinding Prez Obama’s DAPA memorandum (Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents).
This program was meant to shelter certain undocumented immigrants from deportation. DAPA was never implemented because was put on hold by federal courts after 26 states challenged the memo.
Mr. Kelly said the decision would not impact Prez Obama’s DACA memorandum (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). This program grants temporary reprieve from deportation to nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States as children.
