Attorney General Jeff Sessions will be making the Trump administration's announcement on Tuesday about the future of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
Sessions will make the announcement from the Department of Justice in Washington at 11 a.m. and will take no questions from reporters, the department said.
The program, also known as DACA, was instituted by the Obama administration in June 2012. The program currently allows nearly 800,000 illegal immigrants who entered the country as minors to remain by receiving a renewable two-year period of deferred deportation and a work permit.
Stephen Miller, President Trump's senior policy advisor, spearheads immigration policy in the White House, and was Sessions' communication director when Sessions was a senator. Miller was behind Sessions' campaign against the Gang of Eight's push for bipartisan immigration reform in 2013, which never made it to former President Barack Obama's desk.
It has been widely reported that Trump will end DACA after a six-month delay, and Sessions helped persuade Trump to take that step.
Sessions has made cracking down on illegal immigration a top priority since taking the help of the Justice Department.
