A group of legal scholars from across the United States including New Mexico, Maryland, and Texas, are writing an open letter to the president to urge him to keep former president Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA program intact. The program aims to give work permits to young people brought to the U.S. as children and who would otherwise have “illegal immigrant” status. Although many have suggested that this program is unconstitutional, it has been stated in the open letter that the federal courts have ruled the president can use “prosecutorial discretion” to give certain immigrants, like these young migrants, temporary protective status. Despite the program having helped over 750,000 people so far, Republicans Attorney Generals have called for the Trump administration to phase out the program like it promised to do when running for office. Since then, however, Trump has stated that his administration is more focused on deporting criminals. For more on the story look to ABC News.
