Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Tuesday that the Trump administration was rescinding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
The program began under President Obama. Sessions defended the move as one aimed at ending the "lawlessness" that Obama created with his unilateral executive action.
The Attorney General did not give a timetable as to when the program would be ended.
House Speaker Paul Ryan has already spoken out after the announcement. He called on Congress to come up with legislation aimed at a broader plan to curb illegal immigration in addition to finding a solution to those impacted by DACA.
