Trump expected to announce end to Obama-era DACA, official says So this should be a lively thread here. What says GC about the dreamer program? In short, DACA was a program that barry O put in VIA executive order to protect children who were brought here by illegal immigrants. Essentially your get out of jail free card...bring a kid and you can stay. From what I have read, Trump has decided to let the DACA program end...essentially citing that congress should take action if they see fit, and I agree 100%. This type of thing should not be done via executive order, this is the exact type of thing that our congress should debate on. I know, crazy right? Congress doing their jobs and debating instead of political grandstanding? A pipedream for this current congress I know, but a guy can hope right?
