As 2017 Ends, DACA Legislation Still Not Passed As Congress Embroiled in Spending Agreement Legislation

The U.S. Congress is unlikely to pass a replacement Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) legislation this year that will save from deportation 800,000 young undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children. Democrat and Republican lawmakers are currently embroiled in the legislation of government spending agreements and are likely to focus on the DACA legislation early of next year. The DACA program by the Obama Administration allowed these DACA recipients to legally live and work in the U.S. The DACA program was, however, rescinded by the Trump Administration whereby the program officially ends on March 2018. President Trump has asked Congress to pass a more comprehensive DACA legislation before the March 2018 deadline that will save these young immigrants from deportation.
