Donald Trump's Justice Department announced Tuesday that it will end DACA by rolling out a termination plan that gives Congress a 6-month window to come up with legislation that resolves the Obama-era immigration program once and for all.
Twitter almost immediately erupted in anger with Hollywood stars, media figures and politicians vehemently defend the child brought over by their families aka DREAMERS, who would fall victim to Trump's DACA decision.
"A cowardly act by a cruel, vindictive and heartless administration intent on tearing at the very fabric of the American dream," Mark Ruffalo tweeted.
According to Attorney General Jeff Sessions DACA, the program that allows undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children to remain in the country, is no longer considering applications for legal status.
"We are a people of compassion and we are a people of law," Sessions said in a press conference Tuesday. "But there is nothing compassionate about the failure to enforce immigration laws."
