Brian Markovitz discusses what happens next after Trump's DACA announcement in LAW360

September 7, 2017

The article is titled "3 Questions Facing Employers As DACA Dissolves." Markovitz expressed doubt that congress will do anything to save DACA. 

DACA impacts approximately 800,000 undocumented immigrants, shielding them from deportation and giving them the ability to legally work and attend school. The program was created in 2012, during the Obama administration, for undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States while they were still children. 

The Trump administration announced Tuesday that they will move to rescind the program, and gave Congress six months to find a legislative solution to protect those affected by the decision. Until then, the administration will continue to renew DACA permits that are nearing their expiry date.
