NEW YORK – Immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children are warned by some supporters and make sure they are not abroad if Donald Trump is sworn in as president Jan. 20.
A number of lawyers, and universities are involved Trump may immediately terminate an Obama-administration program that allowed young immigrants to work and travel for humanitarian, educational or employment purposes, without fear of deportation. That could lead, they are afraid, for some people, travelling abroad can be excluded from re-entering the US.
Trump had promised to throw out the Obama program, called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
But he also said that he has sympathy for many of the participants, the so-called “dreamers.”
In a Time magazine interview, he said that he would be replaced by another program that was “it’s going to make people happy.”
