All of the estimated 700,000 illegals given temporary amnesty under the Obama-era “deferred action for childhood arrivals” will lose their status by March 2020, according to a new report on the immigrants.
The Migration Policy Institute said under President Trump’s plan to kill the program, 915 illegal immigrants will lose their DACA status beginning in March 2018 and it will reach 50,000 a month by March 2019.
“MPI projects that all recipients will have lost status by early March 2020,” added the center’s report, a profile of current DACA winners.
Trump and Congress have indicated a goal of writing a compromise that could allow some DACA recipients to stay in the United States, but nothing has happened yet. Many of those recipients have been protesting Trump’s action.
Under the program, younger illegals were given a two-year amnesty which they can renew. Current DACA permits that expire March 5 can be renewed, but none after that.
The report said that 793,026 participated in the program and that 689,800 are still in it.
