The Trump administration announced today that it will phase out DACA, the legal protections and work permits for some undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children. AG Jeff Sessions confirmed the news in an 11 a.m. statement, taking no questions from media.
From Trump's statement: "I do not favor punishing children, most of whom are now adults, for the actions of their parents. But we must also recognize that we are nation of opportunity because we are a nation of laws."
Trump to reporters, via the White House pool: "I have a great heart for these folks we're talking about. A great love for them and people think in terms of children but they're really young adults. I have a love for these people and hopefully now Congress will be able to help them and do it properly."
