The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program was an executive order signed into law by President Barack Obama. DACA protected children of undocumented immigrants from being deported as long as certain criteria were met like one has to be under 16 when one came to the US, have a high school diploma or GED and have no felony or serious misdemeanor convictions. DACA remained in place until President Donald Trump rescinded the program citing it as an act of overreach by the executive branch. He told Congress they had until March 5 to come up with new legislation to replace DACA. However as the deadline passed at the beginning of this month, Congress still has not taken action, and instead, courts have ruled that renewals of DACA protection can continue.
