3The Trump administration has announced the DACA program will end in March, and that no new applications will be processed. DACA was created by an executive order during the Obama administration, and the Trump administration says Congress will need to pass legislation if it wishes to continue a version of DACA. Is the Trump administration making the right decision? Or the wrong decision?
