President Donald Trump is trying to reassure the hundreds of thousands of immigrants in a program his administration announced it is ending.

The development came just a day after Trump ignored the recommendations of GOP House and Senate leaders and sided with Democrats Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY in favor of a three-month extension of the government's borrowing limit. On one hand he rescinds the Barack Obama edict, but not for six months.

Schneiderman noted that 42,000 NY residents would be impacted by the termination of DACA, and added that the president's actions were fueled by prejudice.

However, President Trump has said he will revisit the problem at the end of the six-month period if Congress can not find a legislative solution in that time. First, can Congress fix the problem? "To arbitrarily and capriciously end the DACA program, which benefits our country as a whole, is not only unlawful, it is contrary to our national values and bad policy". DACA holders are law abiding residents who contribute to the USA society and economy.

There are today some 800,000 young people in the United States who were brought in illegally by their parents who then overstayed their visas and were, therefore, deported.

Trump's announcement on Tuesday that he'd be "winding down" the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was deeply unsettling for many participants.

In announcing their opposition to the president's decision to rescind DACA - which would impact approximately 800,000 illegal immigrants brought to this country as children and dubbed "Dreamers" by the program's supporters - Jepsen stressed the potential socioeconomic chaos that this action would have on CT.

The California Democrat told journalists that Trump signaled his backing in a White House meeting with congressional leaders on Wednesday and in conversation with her Thursday.

During the past week DACA recipients and immigration advocates have held rallies throughout the USA protesting the Administration's decision to phase out the program.

Jose Pedraza, senior in political science and president of the Latin American Student Organization (LASO), believes that Trump's decision is not a step in the right direction. "I think it's very bad", St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson said Friday. Many of them have gone to college and built careers here, and have a lot to contribute to this country.

The Trump Administration has given congress six months to come up with a legislative fix before the government stops renewing permits for people already covered by the program.

"Rescinding the work permits of nearly 800,000 people and forcing them into the shadows is reckless economic policy", the chamber said in a release.
