According to a Fox News report, President Donald Trump is expected to end DACA in its current form and he’ll make an official statement about this issue on Friday. DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals and the POTUS will sign an executive order to end the Obama era immigration program, which is famous for allowing immigrants who entered the US illegally as children to temporarily stay in the country.

However, White House officials denied the veracity of the Fox News report, with WH Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders claiming no final decision with regard to DACA’s fate has been made by the POTUS. Donald Trump campaigned on ending DACA once and for all, yet he’s expected to allow more than 800,000 illegal immigrants to the US to remain in the country, until their work-visas expire.
DACA is not a path to citizenship on itself, yet it protects illegals from deportation whilst providing them with 2 year work permits. The immigrants eligible for DACA must have arrived in the US prior to 2007 and were under the age of 15 at the time. AG Sessions called for an immediate repeal of DACA as the program is unconstitutional in nature and it rewards illegal immigrants.
Liberals went berserk at the news:
If you end DACA, we will make your life impossible.
