Trump Open to Giving Dreamers Pathway to Citizenship

President Donald Trump informed a group of reporters last Wednesday that he is open to giving Dreamers, or Deferred Action on Childhood Arrival (DACA) recipients, the chance of attaining citizenship within 10-12 years. This is a welcome development for almost 700,000 young undocumented immigrants who wish to stay legally in the U.S. These Dreamers are young undocumented immigrants who were brought into the U.S. as children and were allowed to temporarily stay and work in the U.S. by the Obama Administration through the DACA program. DACA legislation has been a thorny issue in the past few months between the democrat and republican leaders in government that even led to the recent government shutdown because of a failure to compromise to legislate on the DACA and immigration reforms, including the U.S.-Mexico border wall, being demanded by democrats and republicans, respectively.
