Earlier today, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, program, known as DACA. The 2012 Obama-era program defers deportation for young people who entered the United States illegally as children. Congress will have six months, through next March, to decide the fate of the 800,000 immigrants in the program. California alone is home to an estimated 220,000 DACA participants.
