    Someone must have a short memory. Trump "ended" the program because it is not within the purview of the executive branch to implement permanent legislative acts reserved to the Congress. He demanded that the Congress do it's job. From the cited: "For this reason, we [the USCCB] again urge the U.S. Congress to take up and pass legislation granting Dreamers a path to citizenship." Trump fully understands DACA, but his hands were CONSTITUTIONALLY tied from permanently aiding the DACA population.
