In a move that President Trump absolutely needed to pursue in order to lock down his concerned base, senior officials inside the Trump White House leaked news that Trump would end the so-called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program “as it exists today.” DACA was the executive amnesty put into place by President Obama in 2012, and essentially forced the Department of Justice not to prosecute any illegal immigrants who were brought to the United States as children. More specifically, as Fox News summarizes:
Individuals are able to request DACA status if they were under the age of 31 on June 15, 2012, came to the U.S. before turning 16 and have continuously lived in the country since June 15, 2007. Individuals must also have a high school diploma, GED certification, been honorably discharged from the military or still be in school. Recipients cannot have a criminal record.
