The DACA program was established by former President Barack Obama through an executive order in 2012. It granted temporary residency and work privileges to "Dreamers," or immigrants who were brought to the United States illegally as children.

On September 5, US Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced DACA’s termination with a six-month delay to allow the authorities to close pending applications and renewals and give the US Congress a chance to pass legislation that would make the program permanent.
