Another one of former President Barack Obama’s signature policies will soon be falling down, as President Donald Trump has decided to terminate his immigration policy which allowed hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants to stay in the U.S., preventing them from being deported.
The policy known as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), will be rescinded by the president as early as this Friday, however, details reveal that he will grant permission to those who already enrolled in the program, known as “Dreamers” to stay in the country until their paperwork is out of date.
Back in 2012, former President Obama used an executive order to create the DACA program, which allowed illegals under 18 who were illegally brought to the States by their parents or relatives, to be protected from forced deportation by the federal authorities.
Trump has had the idea of bringing down this Obama-era policy since he was campaigning, but since his inauguration following his victory over Hillary Clinton, he seems to have softened his stance, explaining how he was open to allowing certain aspects of the executive order to remain as they are.
“They shouldn’t be very worried,” added President Trump when he referred to the ‘Dreamers’ noting “I do have a big heart.”
Once again Trump and his administration have kept their promise to the American people, hitting hard on immigration despite the liberal criticism.
