It has been six months since President Donald Trump moved to end the program that protects young undocumented immigrants from deportation called the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA for short. March 5th was the deadline for sorts of action and the deadline for Washington to come to a resolution. When Trump ended the DACA program in September of 2017, he created a six month delay to give congress time to come up with a legislative version of the policy, which protected young undocumented immigrants, who had come to the US as children.  

The Department of Homeland Security was going to renew the two year permit, that expired before March 5th and Monday was the deadline for the permit to expire permanently. Multiple Federal judges ordered DHS to resume renewing all current DACA permits.

Currently, there is no date given that the protections will run out for the 700,000 DACA recipients. For the people to renew their DACA protection, they were not able to because they were either rejected, unable to get together the paperwork or the $500 dollar fee, or they don’t trust the government to give them their p


ersonal information.  Trump stated that, “We want to do what’s right and we’re going to do what’s right, and we’re going to solve the DACA problem. And I don’t think the Democrats would want to pull another shutdown.” He also added, “But we’ll get it solved. And if we need a little more time, we’ll take a little more time. 

I want to get the problem solved correctly.” It is relieving to most that he is determined to get the job done correctly.  He also stated that “Nobody wants to take care of the DACA problem more than myself and the republican party.” There are no exact dates, but Trump would like to solve the problem quickly.
