Washington DC [United States], Feb 13 (ANI): United States President Donald Trump has dwelled upon the ongoing Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) negotiations stating that "this will be our last chance."
The Senate on Monday evening started debate on the future of DACA recipients, often called "Dreamers."
The DREAM Act - an acronym that stands for Development, Relief, and Education of Alien Minors, was introduced in the Senate in 2001. The act gave the name to that generation of immigrants: the DREAMers.
Last year, Trump made an announcement that he was ending the Obama-era DACA program, which offered Dreamers a temporary reprieve from deportation.
Furthermore, he gave Congress until March 5th to craft a legislative fix, setting off a scramble among lawmakers to negotiate a deal to enshrine the program's protections into law, reported the Hill.
However, lawmakers have struggled to reach consensus and be on the same page on the issue, by far. (ANI)
