Trump Planning to Move DACA to Congress

President of the United States, Donald Trump, strongly recommended Congress to start working with full force on legislation for replacing the program called DACA during the time of the previous president of the US, Barack Obama. According to Donald Trump, the policy that protected the young illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children will be no longer in effect. The attorney general is scheduled to announce the final decision of the Deferred Action for the Childhood Arrivals program. It was revealed from internal sources that the administration has planned to finally end the program after a delay of six months.

This particular delay of six months would allow some time for Congress for the crafting of a proper legislative solution instead of an executive action which the previous president of the United States Barack Obama has used in the year 2012 for the purpose of enacting the program. In his latest tweet on Tuesday morning, Trump mentioned that Congress should be ready to do their job on DACA. As per the estimated reports, a total of about 800,000 people were brought to the United States illegally along with their parents come under this DACA program. Donald Trump is under tremendous pressure to put an end to DACA. This pressure is being created by the state attorney general of the Republicans who are of the viewpoint that this program is not in accordance with the constitution and are threatening a legal challenge.

This issue if put to Congress would result in the ending of the legal threat that looms but at the same time would leave the future of the program unclear. Democrats on the other hand are of a different viewpoint. They are arguing that if the program comes to an end it would put the ones who are already in the country at a great risk of being deported which might as well hurt the economy of the United States. The Republicans are of mixed reaction on this issue and are actually split. Some of them want immediate action to be taken whereas some others say that they want a legislative solution to impose a restriction on the program and protect the ones who are already in the country. GOP of South Carolina Lindsay Graham has backed president Donald Trump and his plan of strongly recommending Congress to take up the matter in their own hands with a effective solution to this.
