The White House plans to remove DACA within the next six months. This decision reveals a disconnect between the administration and people that would be affected by the plan. It seems that many citizens, regardless of party-line, support DACA. Trump’s administration does not, and those in Congress are not urgently trying to oppose the phase-out of DACA.

Loyola University Chicago has also provided a helping hand by enrolling 150 undocumented immigrants this fall. It is unclear if this will be enough to make up for the Federal Government’s apathy towards this crucial issue.
