DACA: What You Need to Know
What is happening on Capitol Hill as of January 2018?
Some members on Capitol Hill have indicated that their top priority for January is an amnesty for beneficiaries of President Obama’s unlawful Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Democrats and open borders advocates are once again threatening a government shutdown while insisting on attaching an unconditional DREAM Act amnesty to must-pass spending legislation. At the same time, pro-amnesty Republicans have even expressed support for a standalone package that pairs a DACA amnesty with meaningless enforcement provisions.
