The attack of DACA program has been attacked by several Front networks as well as organizations. The news has been spreading among the young immigrant’s organizations as well as networks. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is a member organization which gives the young immigrants who are undocumented and meets assured requirements an opportunity to work in the United States, prevent them from being deported, and provide a social security number.

Ken Paxton is the Attorney General of Texas City, and recently he wrote an official letter to Trump who is the current President of the United States of America to withdraw the DACA Program with immediate effect. The Attorney General had given a deadline of up to 5the September for the Trump administration to act and if the demands will not have been met legal action will be taken.
