USA: Jeff Sessions announces official rescinding of DACA by Trump administration

United States, Washington DC
September 5, 2017 at 16:55 GMT +00:00 · Published

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions told a press conference in Washington DC, Tuesday, that the Trump administration will be rescinding the DACA programe.

The Attorney General said that DACA was to blame for causing “terrible humanitarian consequences” and had “denied jobs to hundreds of thousands of Americans by allowing those same illegal aliens to take those jobs.”

Sessions called the enactment of DACA a “disrespect” by the Obama administration for the legal process and said that “immigration policies should serve the interests of the people of the United States.”

DACA , short for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, allowed undocumented individuals who had entered the US as minors to be eligible for work and be exempt from deportation for a renewable two-year period. It protected some 800,000 people from deportation.

Congress now has six months to come up with alternative legislation to regulate their status.
