Kelly: Trump Not Expected To Extend DACA Deadline


White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly said Tuesday that President Donald Trump is not expected to extend a March 5 deadline for when legal protection and work permits begin to expire for young immigrants known as “dreamers” – raising the stakes for lawmaker struggling to reach a solution.

“I doubt very much” Trump would extend the program, Kelly told reporters during an impromptu interview at the U.S. Capitol.

He told reporters that he was “not so sure this president has the authority to extend it” because the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that protects roughly 690,000 undocumented immigrants was not based on law.

  1. DACA was an unconstitutional program from the start. Obama the traitor broke the law when he bypassed Congress and now President Trump is blamed by the “compassionate” left – those who want to impeach President Trump for stopping the funding of murdering babies and for closing the borders to terrorists – for revising it.
