President Donald Trump is delaying his commitment to re-cancel the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, a senior administration official told reporters Tuesday.
“The administration is now undertaking a comprehensive review of the program,” the official said.
Pending completion of the review, the administration will not approve new entrants, but will provide one-year renewals of work permits first provided by President Barack Obama to roughly 800,000 illegal immigrants, the official said.

Again, if the program is illegal, why extend it?  Furthermore, the program was originally designed for two-year periods for the illegal aliens, why go to one year?  It only encourages illegal aliens to hold out for the November elections.  But worst of all, there was no need to extend the program at all....
