Will nearly 800,000 young undocumented immigrants lose protection from deportation?

That decision is up to Congress, the Trump administration said Tuesday.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the administration is rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Pulling the plug on DACA overturns President Barack Obama’s signature immigration policy and could upend the lives of more than three quarters of a million people.
But the Trump administration gave Congress a six-month window to act before any currently protected individuals lose their ability to work, study and live without fear in.
