    Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals also known as DACA a policy that allows young immigrants who came to the United States as children to be protected.  DACA was created by former president Barack Obama on June 15, 2012 and went into effect on August 15, 2012. According to UsNews  800,000  people benefit from Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, DACA has helped thousands of young immigrants get jobs and attend school safely without the fear of being deported.

    "We have to make a whole new set of standards. And when people come in, they have to come in legally,” said President Donald Trump

    President Donald Trump has another feeling about allowing illegal immigrants to live in the U.S. According to USA Today President Trump vowed to reverse President Obama's executive actions that have shielded millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation, saying that "they have to go.''

    We either have a country or we don't have a country,'' the Republican presidential contender said in a wide-ranging interview on NBC's Meet The Press.

Continuing the hard-line on immigration that he staked out when he first announced his candidacy, the New York businessman also suggested that he do away birthright citizenship.

    "They're having a baby. And all of a sudden, nobody knows... the baby is here,'' Trump said.

    "And we're going to try and bring them back rapidly, the good ones.''

    Of his plans to repeal the Obama administration's immigration orders, including "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA, Trump wants the actions to be rescinded.

    "We have to make a whole new set of standards. And when people come in, they have to come in legally.''

    While the executive actions were designed to keep immigrant families together, Trump said his plan would do just that, suggesting that entire families would be removed. "We're going to keep the families together; we have to keep the families together.''

    Trump also reiterated his promise to build a wall along the southwest border with Mexico and his demand that the Mexican government pay for it. "I'm a huge fan of the Mexican people,'' he said.     

     "I have thousands of Mexican people working for me right now and have over the years. But they have to pay for the wall. And we need the wall.''

         According to CNN Leader Nancy Pelosi  called it a "good bill" and said she "fought very hard for many of the things that are in there," even as she said she wouldn't vote for it.
