Guest: Carolina Núñez, JD, Professor of Immigration Law, Associate Dean of Research and Academic Affairs, J. Reuben Clark Law School, Brigham Young University President Trump is giving Congress six months to come up with a permanent solution to the status of some 800,000 undocumented immigrants known as “Dreamers,” who were brought to the U.S. as children. “Dreamers” have had access to work permits and protection from deportation under a policy enacted by President Obama in 2012, called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. President Trump announced Tuesday he will rescind that policy next March, but hopes Congress will make the policy permanent in the meantime.
