Talking Points: Trump Administration Limits DACA Protections

The Presidents’ Alliance developed the following talking points in response to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) memorandum issued on July 28, 2020 to limit DACA protections. The talking points note the importance of DACA and that Congress must pass a permanent, legislative solution to protect young undocumented immigrants, including DACA recipients, from deportation and allow them to contribute fully to the U.S.

Under the memo, DHS will reject all new (initial) DACA applications; and grant DACA renewals, including protection from deportation and work authorization, for one year periods, rather than two years.
