NOT GOOD: Trump to Extend DACA Protections if Congress Doesn’t Act

President Trump will reportedly extend protections for young immigrants beyond the six-month deadline if Congress does not act to legalize the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) said outside a town hall event in Tulsa that Trump told him personally that he would extend the March 5 deadline, according to The Washington Post.
“The president’s comment to me was that, ‘We put a six-month deadline out there. Let’s work it out. If we can’t get it worked out in six months, we’ll give it some more time, but we’ve got to get this worked out legislatively,’" Lankford said.
When Trump rescinded President Obama’s landmark immigration protections in September, he set a six-month deadline for Congress to legalize the protections for so-called "Dreamers," young undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children.
