Jobs at Risk if Trump Ends DACA

Sources familiar with the deliberations tell Axios that Trump has made no final decision, and the White House continues to receive advice from the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice.

DACA is an Obama-era program that shields some immigrants who were brought to the country as children from deportation.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions discussed the program with senior White House officials on Thursday, and the Department of Homeland Security sent the White House a recommendation on what to do earlier this week, according to NBC.

“I join my mayor-colleagues in encouraging President Trump and his Administration to demonstrate a commitment to the American economy and the ideals of our nation by continuing DACA until Congress modernizes our immigration system and provides a more permanent form of relief for these individuals”, said Koos.

Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez said it would be a “moral disgrace” to end the DACA policy. Trump is considering phasing out the program or ending it immediately, but the officials said it is unclear which option Trump will choose.

Trump is reportedly reviewing the program and will decide by this Friday if it will be renewed.

The ten who signed the letter represent the states of Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Nebraska, Arkansas, South Carolina, Idaho, Tennessee, West Virginia and Kansas.
