Trump Ends DACA

September 6, 2017

President Donald Trump has ended DACA- representing the most aggressive immigration crackdown of his administration so far.  The termination of the program will put nearly 800,000 immigrants who came to the US as children or young teenagers at risk of deportation. Trump has delayed implementation by 6 months, presumably to give Congress time to provide a legislative solution.  

 

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Tuesday that the government will stop granting protections from deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, instituted by President Barack Obama in 2012.

 

According to an official Department of Homeland Security memo, people who have already applied for DACA protection will have their applications processed normally, but the government won’t accept any new applications after Tuesday, September 5, 2017

 

Those currently covered under the program — which grants protections for two years — will be able to retain their protections and work permits until they expire.

 

If their DACA protections are set to expire before March 5, they will have a month — until October 5 — to apply for one last renewal. And those who are set to lose their protections on March 6 or later will simply fall back into unauthorized status.
