On September 5, 2017, President Trump ended all initial requests for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, also known as "DACA", and limited eligibility for renewal applications of existing DACA recipients.
DACA was a program started under the Obama administration and allows individuals who were brought into this country illegally when they were under the age of 16 who attend school and have no significant criminal violations to obtain renewable work permits and deferral from deportation.
In his move ending DACA, President Trump passed the buck to Congress to enact laws addressing DACA. This move shocked the nation as nearly 800,000 current DACA recipients are fearful they may be deported to a country they have never called home.
Thus far, Congress has declined to act, leaving hundreds of thousands of individuals in a state of limbo without any legal protection from deportation. Given this current administration's attitude towards undocumented aliens, many are fearful of being deported absent the protection they had under DACA.
