Congressional leaders react to DACA decision

Sen. Schumer: "The President's decision to end DACA was heartless and it was brainless...In so many ways, the Dreamers represent the best of our country."

Speaker Ryan: "President Trump was right in his decision, he made the right call...I think the President was right to give us the time we need to find that compromise. Where does that compromise exist? That's what we're going to spend the next months figuring out."

Rep. Pelosi: "We all agree that President Trump's decision to end DACA is a despicable act of political cowardice. Cowardice-squared because he gave the announcement to his attorney general instead of just making the statement himself."
