Former president Barack Obama criticizes the Trump Administration in a Facebook post for ending the Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
DACA, established by the Obama Administration to protect people who entered the United States as children from immediate deportation, will no longer accept applications, a decision announced Tuesday, Sept. 5, 2017 by Attorney General Jeff Session.
