Jeff Sessions Confirms Trump’s Decision To End The DACA Program That Protects Young Undocumented Immigrants

On Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions confirmed that President Trump will end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program — thereby closing the door on Obama-era protections for undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as minors. The presidential desire, as further forecast over the weekend, was to eventually end DACA entirely but allow Dreamers who are currently in the U.S. to fulfill current work permits before getting the boot. And now, Sessions has announced that DACA will indeed phase out with a six-month stay while Congress irons out the technicalities. In the above clip, Sessions maintained that DACA steals #Jobs and social security from American workers and was unconstitutionally implemented by Obama:

“The program known as DACA that was effectuated under the Obama administration has been rescinded … the policy was implemented unilaterally, to great controversy and legal concern … the executive branch, through DACA, deliberately sought to achieve what the legislative branch specifically refused to authorize … Simply put, if we are to further our goal of strengthening the constitutional order and the rule of law in America, the Department of Justice cannot defend this type of overreach.”
