Trump Repeals DACA

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the Trump Administration is repealing the DACA amnesty that President Obama unilaterally decreed. By doing so, he ignored the constitutional authority of Congress to pass laws. Sessions noted that DACA showed “disrespect for the legislative process.” The program will phase out at the end of six months unless Congress renews it. Some observers believe that the administration will seek concessions from immigration advocates if they want to keep DACA or some version of it. Those concessions might include passage of mandatory E-Verify, border fencing, and significant reduction of legal immigration.
