On Tuesday, President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions made the controversial decision to end DACA, or the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. As explained by CNN, DACA is a policy that prevents the deportation of minors who were brought to the United States as undocumented immigrants. It protects innocent children who deserve to live their lives in the country where they were raised without the risk of being deported. The Obama administration founded the program in 2012.
To remind us that this decision was bad bad bad bad bad, former president/current president in our hearts Barack Obama shared a lengthy and rare Facebook post about the matter, referring to the children who may be affected by the repeal of DACA as "Dreamers."
Obama begins his statement by explaining that decisions regarding DACA should have nothing to do with the administration's stances on immigration, because they are separate issues.
