Trump to consider ending DACA


President Donald Trump has decided to scrap a programme shielding from deportatio­n immigrants who came to the United States illegally as children but will give Congress six months to craft legislatio­n to replace it, sources familiar with the situation said.

The president decided to delay enforcemen­t of his decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, the two sources said on Sunday. One source cautioned that the president could change his mind.

DACA, an Obama administra­tion policy, protects nearly 800,000 young men and women often called “Dreamers” from deportatio­n and allows them to work legally. Dreamers are a fraction of the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States, most of them Hispanic.
