Back in the United States, the Trump administration has formally rescinded President Obama’s Deferred Action for Parents of Americans program, or DAPA, which would have shielded millions of immigrants with U.S. citizen or permanent resident children from deportation. DAPA had been blocked by the courts and was never implemented. This comes as the Trump administration has said explicitly for the first time that recipients of DACA—that’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals—will not have their work permits canceled before their expiration dates. DACA permits last two to three years. However, the statement by the Department of Homeland Security did not say whether the administration will grant renewals of DACA permits.
