Trump expected to announce end to Obama-era DACA, official says | Fox News
Trump mulling ending DACA, but will make decision with 'big heart,' Pence says - ABC News
It's another hot potato issue: what to do about well settled undocumented people in the US that arrived as children, otherwise known as the 'DREAMers'.
Efforts under Dubya and Obama to provide legal status to DREAMers upon certain conditions have failed in Congress. Obama responded by using executive authority to establish the DACA programme that put the DREAMers in the lowest priority for deportation provided they have clean records and other qualifications, basically giving them relief from deportation and a work permit pending a final resolution for them.
During the campaign, Trump told his base that he'd get rid of DACA. He then reversed course after being elected. Now, he's receiving pressure from a coalition of 10 red states that threaten to sue him unless he gets rid of DACA.

Now apparently he will do so, although hinting of some other relief being in order.
Your thoughts for topic discussion as to this decision and what should be done about the DREAMers?
