On Tuesday, Sept. 5, the Trump administration announced that they will be rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, an Obama-era policy that protects the deportation of nearly 800,000 young undocumented immigrants (nicknamed as Dreamers) who were brought to the United States before the age of 16 and allows them the ability to work legally. 

The only way Dreamers will legally be able to stay in the country once their DACA permits expire will be if in some way the law changes. The White House is giving Congress a six-month deadline to come up with a legislative fix before the government stops processing permits. 

Below is a list of resources for DACA immigrants to learn more about the program's repeal:
