President Trump says he will “revisit” his decision to eliminate the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program if Congress is incapable of taking action on the issue.
Congress now has 6 months to legalize DACA (something the Obama Administration was unable to do). If they can't, I will revisit this issue!

I look forward to working w/ D's + R's in Congress to address immigration reform in a way that puts hardworking citizens of our country 1st.
