Despite protests across the country by left-wing activists, it appears that an extension of President Obama’s extra-constitutional Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA) program will not happen before the end of the year. This was the top priority of Democrats. They will fail to achieve it by the deadline they set.
No matter — the manufactured crisis Democrats sought never arrived, as President Trump set his own deadline of March 5, 2018 for action.
But this does not mean that the individuals who have benefited from DACA are not in limbo. Clearly, they are.
DACA recipients (also known as the “Dreamers”) are a subset of all illegal immigrants in this country.
